Relatively recently an English translation of Taikou Risshiden 5 became available.

Taikou Risshiden 5 is a 2004 Koei Tecmo RPG/strategy game where you play as a single character of your choice during the Sengoku Japan period with a wide variety of potential activities and minigames. It is probably mechanically the deepest game of its kind.

Have you heard of it, played it or are interested in playing it?

I didn't hear of it before reading this thread, I'd be interested if I could find a torrent to see if I can run it on linux but I haven't had any luck so far.

Talk about your favorite local arcades, ask for recommendations for places to go in your area, etc.

One of my personal favorites in Michigan is Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum, which brings me to some sad news I just learned while searching for a picture to start this thread. Marvin Yagoda, owner of Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum in Farmington Hills, MI, died Sunday, 8 Jan 2017, at the age of 78:


For those who have never been to Marvin's, it's an incredible collection of coin-op arcade machines, including videogames, pinball tables, mechanical novelties, antiques, machines commissioned specificially for the Museum and more. Yagoda founded the arcade in 1990 when his personal collection became too large to contain, and it has been a local landmark ever since. He often stopped by the Museum to hang out and chat with patrons while wearing his trademark suspenders, so many people like myself got to personally meet the man behind the magic. Very sad to see him go, but he lived a long life and touched the lives of a lot of people.

Anyway, sorry to start the thread with a downer, but I thought a little memorial would be appropriate. What arcades do you go to? Anybody else have recommendations for Michigan?

I played a lot of Sonic Hacks and Fangames though, with pic related being one of my favorites. Amy can get some absurd height with her hammer attacks, and she's still quite speedy even if she can't roll, which is a really big deal in 2D Sonic. Also it's cute.

Currently playing through Marathon 1 Redux. It puts together a bunch of improvement mods and some level editing to revamp the original Marathon. It's also much more difficult than the base game: I've found myself being shot down without the first few rooms more than a few times when I started the game. I guess this is a common quirk with hacks/mods, though I do miss punching my way through the first level.

Does anyone know if the Sharp X68000 was designed with CRT filtering in mind? Not all, but a lot of its CGs are in a 512x512 format and look squished. If you stretch them to a 4:3 resolution they look normal, but it's impossible to do that and still retain a 1:1 pixel aspect ratio without applying some scaling filter, which destroys the sharpness of the image. I've noticed some horizontal line dithering techniques similar to the MD/SNES which relied on CRT filtering, which I've never seen in PC-98 CGs, since it was not supposed to be filtered by a CRT and have sharp pixel art.
Anonymous (Sun)Sep 29 2019 11:14:36
Found this article which mentions an "official Sharp CRT filter", so my guess is probably right. https://www.videogameperfection.com/2014/04/04/worlds-x68000-setup/

If anyone is interested in resampling Sharp x86000 CGs so they don't look squished I recommend Lanczos3 at 640x480, but make sure to keep the image indexed so you don't get thousands of extra colors from the filter.

The style exists because it's fast and easy to do. Being able to both draw and program isn't a very common combination, so if you're an indie dev and can't afford to hire anyone but yourself you're obviously going to need to make stylistic decisions that account for your limited skillset.

I'll probably add some soon.
We're very close (could even be in the next few days) to updating the site to the totally new engine I've been working on, and it actually has a fully working admin panel (and finally has proper thread pruning now too lol)

It's also a good opportunity to rethink how moderation is going to work here. So far I don't think anything has been deleted but some old stuff, cp, and bot spam.
I'm also a fan of moderation being less "by the book". Take this thread for example, it's not confrontational, it's only 1 occurrence, and everyone is saging the thread so far (perhaps even the OP has saged himself too?)
That's the sort of thing I think can just be let in under the radar. It's also one of the reasons why I love sage.
Collective polite saging means we don't necessarily have to delete everything.

Dude this game is scary as fuck. Have you ever bought it on release? Mario was falling through the ground every ten seconds due to the game being rushed because they needed a Mario game out so the GC would stop selling like horse shit. And then when you die you'd have to listen to that scary ending with those clown honks and the blood red "GAME OVER" text, and our favorite plumber would scream "THE HORROR" all muffled and distorted like. The beta looked better than the actual game.
