HEY, SHIT FOR BRAINS
Check this game out. It looks like Klonoa/Mischief Makers but it's a Goemon game. In fact the PS1 has a ton of Goemon games that never left nippon. This one just got translated though.
I really like the style of PS1 games. I feel, though, that I haven't dived deep in the library as much as the N64 one. Do you know of any hidden gems that never get talked about?
I'm working through Echo Night right now. Very interesting game. Apparently after kingsfield the FromSoft team wanted to work on things with more realistic architecture. Only one puzzle stumped me so far. I wouldn't say its horror but it does get unsettling sometimes. It has a ton of voicework in it too which actually isn't all the bad.

Did the Alita PS1 game ever get fully translated?
And is true that the SamSho RPG translation is worked on again?

See if you can 100% the game without using online guides or the in game unlockable secrets page. One of the levels doesn't even hide the last item but to get it, you have to do a speedrunning-style mechanic that the game hasn't mentioned at all previously. Visuals and music are great though.

I only recently discovered that a game I really liked way back then (Incredible Crisis / Tondemo Crisis) was also butchered because of shit localizers. Apparently they couldn't find a way to re-integrate a Karaoke minigame and a Bomb Defusal minigame because of the language barrier.

Play it if you can, it's a really nice and short experience.

Wasn't that game localized by Titus, the same faggots who developed Sperman 64? Makes sense the game was butchered by incompetence.

I don't recall, but basically the Karaoke segment was removed because they couldn't bother to put a non Japanese song or even keep the same song (the usual bbbbutttttt it's toooo foreeeeeeeeign excuse), while the Bomb Defusal stage had slightly more merit to it: basically the salaryman is instructed on how to defuse a bomb on a speeding bullet train while receiving instructions by a bomb squad situated on the various train stations in the form of cardboard messages. Obviously, since it's in Japanese, they could fit Kanjis and Hiragana on each, meaning that they would only use a set amount of cardboard signs per stage of the mission, but replicating that would have meant taking a lot of time and effort into making the minigame make sense.

The problem is that not only did they cut the two minigames, they also cut the 'cutscenes' leading in and out of them, which make the narrative feel super disjointed without them.

"Being a p-paper knife, if cut with it <???> blood comes out!"
"I-it's a paper knife, so if you get cut <???> you'll bleed!" (less direct translation)
The "<???>" is the word with a kanji I don't know + "ishi" (the word between "kiraretara" and "chi ga demasu yo-"). From the context, I guess maybe it means something like "still"? As in "you'll still bleed"?
Rate my Nippongo. (I've studied to about N4 within a few months but I'm a lazy nigger so I put it on hold for about a year now, although I've been learning little bits here and there very passively)
As a side note, I know someone who likes the Summon Night games and played them as a kid on emulators even without knowing Japanese. Maybe I should play them too as a tribute to him.

She says something like "If I cut it with a paper knife, it hurts and blood comes out, you know?"
し is a kind of "and" in this case, to list multiple things (but I think you'd need a し after 血が出ます to be grammarly correct).
よ is used when saying something the other person should know. "You know?" might be a bit too much, but without any context I have no better idea.

>not knowing about all those jrgp games on the psx
It's THE jrgp console. It throws me... you're on some obsure imageboard and it's a video game board and you don't know that psx, as easily emulated as it's been for ages, has lots of 'weeb tier' games? How young are you? This is like seeing the sega saturn only for tomb raider and such. It's just odd. 

>they look awful
You don't like games as much as you think you do, you like movies. That's like complaining about moe. It's shittier art, yes, but it's got gameplay. Games are played, it's not just a piece of art but a game. Bad graphics are charming. 

>>185030
The first one is liked more probably because the second has a hard mode that really kills. They are both good. Being stuck on one island somehow feels more homey and also it's more a mystery at first. The first feels more linear than the second with how it lets you fly all over the place. Also, megaman's voice sounds gay and the ending is bad on number 2. It needed a third but they canceled it because they only sell what they know will sell. It was going to be on the ds, that third one, if I recall.

The filters and CRT shaders are simply too good to ignore. I play with 3x integer scaling + some CRT shaders. The messy console-ified menu UI sucks major ass, but at least you only have to use it one or 2 times to set up a new emulator.
The one point you can't deny is that Retrofag makes it possible to access some emulators on mobile.
The only thing I can't figure out is why the Retrofag version of mGBA doesn't pick the correct save types for games. The only info I've been able to find is the core based on mGBA is a mess.

Some units are just complete trash compared to others. Some unique units you get break the game and there aren't enough maps to actually be able to experiment with unit combinations.

I bought a PSOne a few days ago. I know it's a bit retarded when PS1 emulation has been pretty much perfect for a while, but it was mostly just to play on my CRT. And thankfully didn't have to pay much retro tax for it.
I can't get an ODE at the moment, so anything i should know for burning isos to CD-Rs? I've burnt a few games to Verbatim 700MB CDs just fine but i read a guide somewhere saying that 650MB CDs are better for PS1.

Mostly you want to burn as slowly as possible, old IDE drives are the best. The piss one is designed for ancient 71 minute CDs and doesn't like cheap media, so buy CMC Pro unless you're like me and have enough cheap CD-Rs from thrift stores you can afford to coaster them. Don't try CD-RWs, they're not reflective enough.

If you have a PS2 and an extra memory card there's a softmod you can do to it in order to play burnt CDs.
At least that's how I did it.

Yeah but i just happened to have the shittier later slim models that replaced the PS1 chip with a powerPC one (hence why i got a chipped PSOne), and apparently those don't read PS1 memory cards at all.

I don't think it matters. As long as that PS2 slim has FreeMCBoot on it through Funtuna you're good to go.
All the PS2 is needed for is to transfer an image to the PS1 memory card.

It's a SCPH-77001 and i tried both an official and a third party memcard. I've looked it up online i saw plenty of people reporting the same thing on slim PS2s. I heard that a multitap can get around it though so i'm gonna try that later to transfer some saves from PC emulators.

I think shitting on filters became a meme, i mean some filters do look like shit, such as those that only add a few thin black lines resulting simply in a darker image, but filters improved a lot and some newer ones can give a pretty convincing CRT look to pixel games.

No need to get that autistic. I repurposed the DVD burner off a 10 years old PC which supported many different reading/burning speeds, slowest being 4x. It's not 2x, but everything I've burned has run fine on my PS1, other than the cheap Philips CDs wearing from a few months of use and audio tracks getting messed up.

I got a pocketstation a while back. While it's nowhere as integral for most PS1 games as the VMU was for Dreamcast games. It does have some neat or soulful uses, and even whole games dedicated to it. Pocket MuuMuu, a jumping flash spinoff, has more than a hundred downloadable minigames and tools that you can buy with points you get from playing other minigames, Pocket Digimon World lets you turn your PocketStation into a glorified v-pet with up to 6 digimon on the same device, with features like an adventure mode, battles or jogress evolution with another user through infrared, and even a Pokemon-Stadium style colosseum in the PS1 disc. Brightis, FF8 and some other RPGs have minigames that can level up or upgrade your in-game characters or gain items, essentially just giving you a fun way to grind on the go. There was also some Yu-Gi-Oh! game that infamously became a lot grindier because of some PocketStation feature for unlocking cards that didn't make it to the western version.
Thankfully PocketStations themselves aren't region locked so you can use them on burger or yurop systems just as long as they're modded to play japanese games, or the few burger localizations that left pocketstation support like RR4 or FF8. There's also patches for games like Digimon World 2 or Legend of Mana that add pocketstation features back into their US versions.

That Fist of the North Star game looks cool, i had no idea it even existed.
I remember having a FotNS game for the PS1 that wasn't 3D like that, but had a sort of turn based combat where you had to choose the moves and the game would first show a clip of Kenshiro performing said move with a 2D cutscene and then the enemy receiving it.
I never went too far with it or never really understand how it worked because it was in Japanese, but i remember thinking it was cool, kinda like an interactive episode of the anime.

What the fuck kind of endings are these? Why does Silent Hill have to cuck Harry into bearing its spooky town babies a second time? Why did Kaufman have to die at all? All I ever wanted for an ending was Harry pumping his seed inside Cybil's tight spandex jeans.
At the very least I'm glad I had to figure out all the puzzles myself instead of looking them up on my first run. It took me an embarassingly long time trying to figure out the Zodiac puzzle, but at the very least I did it myself.

Can you enter the save screen for a memory card on Duckstation? It's that one screen with all save icons you can access on the console if you don't insert any discs.
I've won around 20 japanese memory cards on an auction, and all of them are filled to the brim with saves made by nips years ago.
If I could access them through an emulator I would share some screenshots, since I thought I'd be cool to look into.

Nice. I assume a PS2 with FreeMCBoot and wLaunchELF should be enough to retrieve the PS1 save data right? IIRC PS2 savefiles come in folders you have to export into another file to use with PCSX2. Is it the same with PS1 savefiles?
>japanese PS2
Does it have to be japanese? Memory cards can be read in any console regardless of region. I know I'm reading them on my PS1, and I assume it's the same on the PS2.

I've never done it but apparently it works. You get a pile of raw save files, so you'll need to use MemcardRex to bash them back together into a memory card image before DuckStation can read them.
>Does it have to be japanese?
My mistake, I was thinking of the PS2 where memory cards are encrypted with a region/type specific key. PS1 memory cards shouldn't have any of that gay shit.

Is there another way of doing this? Managing saves in raw folders is a pain in the ass and I'd rather not do it.

Is that true? Why would they do that? I can save whichever game I want on a memory card regardless of region, why would they care if someone imported a fucking memory card?
>>236996
>because he was a scumbag and a drug dealer
Alright, what about it? Is that why he needed some gay ass karmic retribution even if he could've well saved himself? Overpowered by a fucking nurse of all things, even though he had to make his way into Alessa's alternate dimension of all things? By that logic James should've never had a single happy ending because he was an asshole and he killed his wife.
It feels like a case of the devs retconning retarded shit into the ending to provide some sense of accomplishment to the player, even if this game didn't need it. They also paired Harry and Cybil in the most hamfisted way possible, even though they're both as charming as a slab of dry concrete.

Any woman that wasn't full of shit would lose her panties if they were on Cybil's pants; the problem here's the godawful dialogue. It'd help if the characters had more dynamic interactions instead of dumping the entire town lore whenever they're together; something like the drama on the second game.

I assumed nobody would notice that's a slightly edited cover by a brazilian games store in the 90's that used to sell cheap bootleg PS1 discs and even offbrand controllers and accessories. Their bootlegs were pretty popular in south america during the 2000s among with plenty of other ones. I actually live close to a store that sells bootleg PS1 discs they had left from around that time, with some kinda funny covers and disc images. Some even had cheat codes written in the back of the covers by the previous owners.
