Re: SNES9x 1.53 is out

Snes9x v1.54.1 is out now: http://www.s9x-w32.de/dl/
v1.54.0 info: https://github.com/snes9xgit/snes9x/issues/124

v1.54.1 fixes the emulator to remember Window Size when leaving Fullscreen mode, diagonal down gamepad mapping issue and a 3rd issue that I can't think of off the top of my head.

Re: Finally got around to buying 3D Dot Game Heroes

Zelda: Skyward Sword is a pretty good game for a single playthrough if you can comprehend how to handle the controls (Game re-calibrates the Wiimote+ sensor at the most inopportune times, so you basically should re-calibrate it yourself whenever changing items [Press Down on DPad I think]).

Re: Finally got around to buying 3D Dot Game Heroes

I just wasn't too keen on auction websites back then. My parents had an Ebay account, I just didn't care much, I'd rather deal with proper retailers. Seeing as there really wasn't any way to get the game except from such websites, I relented and finally made an EBay account.

Re: Chrono Trigger Save Mayhem

Save States include the SRAM (Where the in-game save data is stored) and when you load a state it will overwrite the SRAM with the copy associated with the Save State. So if you are loading an old Save State it will replace your current in-game save data with old data. This is done because some game...

Finally got around to buying 3D Dot Game Heroes

Finally got around to buying 3D Dot Game Heroes, it cost an arm and a leg to buy though (considering its age). It ended up being $67 AUD for a supposedly brand new copy. I would buy it on the PS3 store except oh wait, it's not available on the Australian PS3 store (and I can't be assed setting up an...

Re: Disgaea is coming to PC

My first guess is it is writing garbage somewhere. Somewhere invisible in other ports that winds up being in the graphics routines on this port. God knows it wouldn't be the first game with out of bounds memory writes. And we know from the high-damage crashes it has, shall we say, less than stellar...

It doesn't help that it says "Includes all content from Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness" on the Store Page yet it does NOT contain all the content from that version of the game. Also it seems to be a port of the PSP version of the game iirc? The DS version has the same name and more bonus ...

Re: WHAT GAMES ARE YOU PLAYING THESE DAYS

Ratchet & Clank (the reboot). It's phenomenal so far (just finished Blackwater City), and peppered with references to the originals and the occasional fourth-wall poke about it being a remake. Is that the PS4 game? Does it let you invert both the X and Y axis for both camera controls as well as...

Re: Disgaea is coming to PC

Slightly OT perhaps: What's the difference between proper fullscreen and borderless fullscreen? Proper Fullscreen = Exclusive display mode Borderless Fullscreen is tainted by the Windows DWM and its abysmal Vsync code, Exclusive Fullscreen Display Mode is not tainted by the DWM (Yet).

Re: Disgaea is coming to PC

Since it is a PC port and on steam, they can update the game via patches to fix bugs and glitches just like they did couple of weeks ago. The game is running smooth now however, there are still "some" complaints regarding the game getting crashed. I do think the released was rushed as : 1...

Re: Disgaea is coming to PC

The game is in a seemingly reasonable shape now that they've released 2 patches. I'd strongly recommend using the classic UI instead of the new UI though. It seems the new UI wasn't well tested.

Re: Star Fox (USA, Japan) Video Pauses

I actually feel like hacking them and getting the source just so we have a new version, but best to wait for the official release of course, which would be complete.

Yeah none of these PC ports of japanese consoles games interest me. It just doesn't feel right to run them as a Windows program.

I don't know if Grinvader is aware of this, but fucking Disgaea is coming to PC with new textures and the Afternoon of Darkness content!
