  1. I have an important question:

  2. Someone retweeted this page on my feed:

    This poor middle aged man has to live a terrible cursed life being connected to a japanese virtual idol.

    Though I was rolling when someone asked "When is your PS Vita game coming out?"

  3. Whats a good Playstation 1 emulator now a days? my old brain keeps suggesting to people "EPSXE" but that emulator has been around for ages and I know its a total bitch to configure. their must've been emulators that have surprassed it by now.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Nope, it's pretty much the best one. It's also frequently updated as well.

      Mr Loopone

      ePSXe actually starting to get updates to become a bit more accurate more recently (some games that are hard to emulate like Formula One Arcade work now but have to do some minor screen adjustment) and still is in some ways the go to PS1 emulator since it takes non Bin+Cue rips. While I have yet to test it Mednafen seems more accurate to the console and possibly the closest one, even more accurate than Sony's own emulator and no plug in nonsense however it only accepts BIN+Cue and some PS1 games aren't in that format* plus it is hard to set up (you need the right BIOS and its all command line unless you use either a recent frontend or something like RetroArch/BizHawk). Apparently there are some recent RetroArch PS1 cores that use Vulkan but they are early days.

      * - Some European and Japanese games especially the obscure ones use mdf/mds or img/ccd, most if not all of the US library is BIN+CUE though. Unsure whether it accepts actual PS1 discs either...

      goku262002

      @King Koopone - well at least I'm not mis-informing people. but now that I know this, is their a good guide as to set up / configure EPSXE? I know 1 mis-step will lead to a ton of errors and frustration.

      Last time I was this early, Todd was a violin-playing Piranha Plant that became a member of Ludwig von Koopa's orchestra in Pipe Down!

  5. Anybody interested in some Sonic Mania shirts?:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/322353989672?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

    They are a size "Mens XL". Helping out a friend in another community, here is her original posting:

    Quote

    Hi there, whoever is still out there!

    I've been in this community a looooong time (sold off my Sonic comic collection here years ago and now have had enough time to regret it). Now I have something else I really, REALLY hope someone will take off my hands.

    I bought two of the first limited edition (only up for a month) Sonic Mania shirts available exclusively on Amazon. They didn't fit quite like I had hoped, and I couldn't exchange for a better size because by the time I received them Amazon had stopped selling them.

    They are a mens size XL.

    I'm a girl who regularly wears mens' shirts, and the particular fit on these didn't work. The shoulders are just slightly more broad and structured than usual (just FYI to any other girls).

    The eBay auction is here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/322353989672?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

    Please keep in mind that I really need the money, so feel free to make an offer! $50 + shipping is the lowest I can go as that's what I paid for these.

    If you don't have an eBay account, I can end the auction and just sell them personally through PayPal.

     

  6. Was their some kind of update to the board?

    1. Conquering Storm’s Servant

      Conquering Storm’s Servant

      Some Likes leaderboard that awards you for getting the most likes. Not the biggest update if you ask me.

    2. goku262002

      goku262002

      Hmm, don't see a topic about an update. but checked my profile and yeah see this "likes leaderboard" you're talking about.

      Any other changes/fixes/additions? Probably should get @Chris attention since he would know.

    3. Conquering Storm’s Servant

      Conquering Storm’s Servant

      None that I'm aware of, but others might mention it somewhere down the line.

    4. goku262002

      goku262002

      Yeah hopefully Chris or someone posts a topic explaining what was updated.


  7. Dunkey and Doggomon go on an adventure...this doesn't end well...

      @サイヤ人の王子, @-Robin-

      You guys aren't getting it. do me a solid and look up each one of those "voice actors" names. then you'll see what I mean.

  9. God damn, Halo 5's next update is massive! New Forge updates, total refreshes to Arena Slayer and its playlists and tons of fixes and new modes for Firefight and Warzone!!

    Too bad I'll be away for the holidays but when I get back in January I can't wait to try it out.

  10. Okay they REALLY need to cut the audience voices when airing these trailers. it was handled allot better during E3.

  11. And now, a very important message from Jontron about drugs:

      We don't have many drug PSAs here, so only one was in the video.

      Operationgamer17

      How come no one is thinking that TGS may have removed the nominations ON THEIR OWN ACCORD, because nothing is confirmed yet?

    4. Milo

      Milo

      @Operationgamer17 Because it's not an unbelievable stretch to assume Nintendo was responsible for the removal of the games when one considers Nintendo's long-standing policy on a handful of notable fan projects based on their properties.

      To say nothing of the fact that both games were hit by Nintendo-issued DCMA/takedown notices and were pulled from distribution by their creators not long after their initial release.

    5. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Damnit, Nintendo, those two were perfectly good fan creations. One even celebrated an anniversary you refused to acknowledge the existance of.

  15. Halo is 15 years old today. can't wait for the anniversary stream 343 is doing later on this afternoon, wonder if they are going to show off that hidden Halo 5 weapon/vehicle content that was found sometime back?

  16. Ah, Sonic Adventure 3, what a game it was one of the greatest can't believe its been 10 years since Sonic Adventure 3 was made they should remake it.

    Hey guys remember when Dunkey played Sonic Adventure 3?
     

    Because who can forget Sonic Adventure 3! certainly not Retro.

      I came here expecting Sonic Heroes. Very disappointed.

  17. Another interview, this time at a different store and its super early (7:45am, damn I must be the first one), lucky its for the exact same position that I had at Wal Mart so I should be able to handle whatever they throw at me in terms of questions. Nervous, but I think I got it.

  20. Well that was a waste, I had an interview today only to find out that it didn't exist! I called the store to ask some questions to the interviewer before my interview and goes to show nobody knew me or who I was talking about, I told them my interview address and they found it weird. so I go and double check the email to make absolutely sure I had the right address and the interviewer didn't leave a fricken phone number to call back!

    WTF kind of unprofessionalism is that?! you're sending me to the wrong place and you leave no number to call you back?! jeez...

    1. goku262002

      @Kiah - Just to give you an update of whats going on.

    2. Kiah

      Kiah

      Sorry but I'm just now seeing this. I had such a rough night at work I couldn't even keep up with my notifications here. 

      And that's ridiculous! Totally unprofessional as well as unacceptable. Sorry you had to go through that as I could only imagine how frustrating they was for you.

    Thank you Adult Swim, I'm going to abuse this.

  22. So right now on Retro we have an ongoing project called the "Sonic Adventure DX '99 edition", the goal is to restore SADX into what it once was the original Dreamcast version of SA1 in terms of looks.

    Allot of research and progress is being done towards this goal but one of Retro's members "PkR" found out an interesting tidbit about the graphical regressions in SADX were handled by Sonic Team, take a read:

     

    Quote

    I think I'm getting closer to understanding the motives behind all those horrible graphical regressions in SADX. In general with ported Dreamcast assets I'm running into a lot of transparency issues, such as alpha channels not being handled properly, or objects becoming invisible behind transparent walls. Unfortunately it seems to be an engine limitation of sorts, which apparently was so difficult to fix that the assets had to be remade with this problem in mind. For example, the entire Twinkle Park walkway with glass walls was a single object in the Dreamcast version, but in SADX it was split into several models - large tube, small tube, middle frame and two reflections. Or the crosswalk, which was a solid rectangle that used a texture with an alpha channel on the Dreamcast, while in SADX the object was made into a zebra stripes shape to avoid alpha channel problems.

    The reason I thought these changes were made due to an engine limitation rather than aesthetic decisions or whatever is that all of the above problems happen on the GC Preview Prototype in the areas that are still using Dreamcast assets. The Dreamcast GPU was able to do alpha sorting natively so the game code didn't have to take care of it, but this aspect couldn't carry over to other systems where the game was ported. It appears that, rather than fixing the alpha sorting issue, they decided to make all kinds of workarounds or just hide the problem by disabling transparency/removing objects altogether. Pretty much any area in the game that looks noticeably different from DC was most likely made to look that way because there was a transparency issue with original assets. In fact you can still find the problematic areas in the final version - for example, in the beginning of Hot Shelter there are green fish tanks; on DC you're able to see the animated waves if you look high enough, in SADX they just get cut off (but they're actually still there). I guess the reason they didn't bother to fix that was because you wouldn't normally look there anyway (or you wouldn't know what's supposed to be there if you haven't played the DC version).

    The transparency issue is a huge obstacle to restoring Dreamcast assets in SADX because the glitchy parts will have to be remade in a way that doesn't make the game look worse. I've already reconstructed the Twinkle Park walkway in Station Square that looks somewhat close to the original, but there are many more areas like that in other levels. Some levels, like Speed Highway or Red Mountain, seem to work pretty well, while other levels, like Hot Shelter, are totally broken. It might be possible to recreate the problematic areas with a negligible loss of quality with some effort, though.

     

    1. Menace2Society

      Menace2Society

      Awesome! Can't wait to play SADX with the Dreamcast models! HopefullyX they'll finish this.

    2. Hyp3hat

      Hyp3hat

      It's so cool that this is being worked on - it also explains something i had casually wondered about with Shenmue II's xbox port having some different textures and objects. Makes you wonder that this, or something like it, is the reason why those games haven't been remastered or ported since release. 

  23. Got a call from my old manager last night before the shift started, she said she got the other manager's email and guess they worked something out because I'll be reactivated into the system this morning (its 6:10am here).

    I still just sit here questioning what was the point of this, I get fired only to be rehired within a 24 hour frame at some other wal mart. why not just wangle me into a transfer instead? whatever, it all worked out...hopefully. the uneasy feeling won't go away until I actually start working again.

    1. SonicWind

      SonicWind

      At least you still have a job, man. Glad things worked out.

    2. Kiah

      Kiah

      Yes it all worked out, thankfully. And fairly quickly too as these situations usually take weeks to be resolved. Hopefully you can get a transfer but in the meantime that's great that you are working again. 

    3. goku262002

      goku262002

      @Kiah - Yeah my old manager has been super helpful with me since I was let go on these terms, just need to call tonight to ask if I need to come in and do the transfer personally.

  24. So....I got fired, sorta.

    I was terminated due to attendance but when I explained why my attendance has been soo spotty as of late (basically to save time I live 20 miles away from my job and take a bus for everywhere and was struggling to get there) they let me talk to another store manager near me to see if I can be given 1 last chance, which 1 manager seems to be willing to. now its just to my old manager and this one to talk things out.

    This uneasy waiting, I hate it. I hope things work out.

    1. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      I hope the best for you. Hopefully, this will be a lucky incident. 

      And you'll get a place closer to you

    2. The Tenth Doctor

      Fingers crossed for you dude.

      Here's hoping things go well.

    4. goku262002
    5. Kiah

      Kiah

      That's unfortunate. Glad management seems like they are willing to work with you and be understanding. Hope everything works out and you get another chance.

    6. goku262002

      goku262002

      @Kiah I hope so too. I did just post an update to all this mess, sounds positive but still I won't feel better until I'm working again.
