Ask ITT whatever you feel like asking that's related to videogames; anything that doesn't deserve its own thread, nebulous denominator notwithstanding.

Why are the PS2 controllers such a cheap Chinese piece of shit? I've got two of them lying around and both of them are ridden with issues. Joystick drift, shoulder buttons caving in after a press, face buttons not working, broken D-pads; the thing falls apart the moment you lay an eye on them.
The original Dualshock, while uncomfortable, was well built and meant to last long, and for once isn't plagued with any of the above. It'd be a no brainer given how the PS2 is compatible with PS1 controllers, but there are some games which forces you to use the PS2 controller and its "features".

What am I supposed to do, buy a bunch of PS2 controllers and throw them away every 3 games? How easily can they be repaired, or at least fiddled with to work a little longer? Even if I were to track down some obscure conversion dongle for the PS2 I'd still not be able to play the games that use the pressure sensitive buttons (MGS, Silent Hill, Siren).

My PS2 controller still works flawlessly after 21 years.
It's usually original PS3 dualshocks that get drift for me.
>>240481 (OP) 
Sorry OP, but I have to concur with >>240488 in that the PS2 controllers have stood the test of time for me. I don't know how you store them or fuck them up doing play, but the only PS2 era controllers that ever broke on me were the MadCatz shit.

>>240481 (OP) 
I never had to worry about a broken controller when I was a kid unless I was using third party trash like madcatz  today controllers will break if you sneeze at them wrong there's always the braindead shills and loyalists who will blindly defend that shit
but it's absurd to me that controllers are less functional than when I was a kid from buttons not registering to buttons double pressing  to drift and the only thing that  really advanced was wireless but it's still shit unless you pay for a  controller dongle from microsoft or phony 
but controllers are honestly the worst they ever been outside of comfort I heard of hall effect sticks but I haven't given them a chance yet because I just don't use my controllers until they break nowadays and use KB/M for most cases unless for when I feel like emulating

Try link related.

Admittedly, I got my PS2 and its controller as refurbished ones over a decade ago. The controller (and official DS2) still works overall just fine, though I have had issues with it with one single game so far, and even then, it was just with an isometric section where the analog didn't like the angle for moving up-right, and would walk instead of run in that direction. That said, I haven't tried that game with any other controller, so it could well be the game itself rather than the controller.

Been the case with a friend's Dual Shock 3's too. Though, while he's had to replace his like 3-4 times, I've never had to replace mine.
Replies: >>242446
The only good thing that the DS4 did was adding a headphone jack to the bottom of the controller.
For the PS3 I had to buy a fucking giant USB headphone pack with a shitty movie game.

i have my chinese ps2 controller that i bought 15 years ago for 10$ and nowadays they cost like 5$ and that shit works like the first day, and even better than the original controller in some games. Meanwhile i bought several xbox 30$ controllers and and they broke in less than a few months. PS2 controllers are unbreakable. PS3, PS4, Xbox360 and one all have drift problems.

Either everyone ITT is a despicable liar or I've got the shittiest PS2 controllers known to man. I wasn't exaggerating in the OP, I've had all of these issues on my two OEM controllers from 20 years ago.
One of them has got both joystick drift and sticky buttons, the button being L2. This renders Siren 1 unplayable, since the triangle context menu only pops up when you're standing still and my guy ever so slightly moving forward. Funnily enough, L2 is the sightjacking button, which you need to be constantly using in the game to figure out what the ghouls are doing in-game.
For the time being I'm doing fine with the other controller that's got a broken D-pad and fucky pressure sensitive buttons, but holy shit. Easily the worst built controller from that generation.
Or you just treat your controllers as rough as I treated your mom last night.

Those are Dualshocks for the PS1. I've got pic related yellowed to piss and back still working perfectly after all these years.
I've said it before but the DS1 is much better than the DS2. It weighs a little more and the casing's stiff hard, unlike the DS2 that's got its PCB rattling inside.
That's actually a very early build of the Dualshock. If you've got one with those joysticks you might be looking at a hundred dollars controller.

Like the link on >>240801 states, there are multiple controller manufacturers and multiple revisions within those.
Can you flip your controller and see what letter you've got? It's either A, H or M. A stands for Alps, who made increasingly shittier controllers throughout the years.

It says A. The only problem I've had with it in 15 years is that it will disconnect if you move the cable too much. Other than that it still works.

How would you go around that, opening a PS1 controller then fitting the PS2 PCB inside? The console still needs to know it's reading the inputs of a PS2 controller.
Wouldn't tracking down some Hoshiden Dualshock 2 controllers accomplish the same, or are they worse? I doubt most people selling shit online have caught up with this nuance.

That's what I thought, but after opening them both up I don't think it will work. Some of the screw placements are different so I would only be able to use these four corner screws. And the PCB is not screwed into place on the DS2, it's only held in with a plastic peg, but the DS1 case doesn't have that peg so it might wobble around.
I had an installation of DODI's repack for Manhunt, but it stopped working. I tried reinstalling it multiple times, but it crashed on launch. I tried installing it through Steam and using only the most basic fixes, and it still crashed on launch. I gave it exceptions in my antivirus software, and it still crashed. How am I supposed to make Manhunt work again? I want to play Blood Moon.

oh yeah, i'm well aware most people aren't familiar with sheer energy autism, that's why i'm planning on the main draw being going around and catching pokeman creatures and building neat little bases, WITH some energy autism layered on top to encourage people to learn that to get more pokemans. generally thinking ad astra + ae2 at minimum, create too if enough peoples' potatoes can handle it. which i know everyone and their grandma has made modpacks for by now since it's got sorta similar stuff to tekkit.
of course these are all empty promises because fuck knows what versions of these mods will be on given some months later
Ely by is one option, but depending on version you can also just use a modpack and not require any third party server connections or accounts. 
I hosted a pirate server for some irl friends who didn't want to give sheckels to microshit a year and a half ago, don't remember exactly which mod I used. Basically just go on modrinth, search for "auth" and the version/mod API you want (quilt is a tranny fork from fabric because they didn't want to ban people with "bad opinions", avoid that one).

So example of what I'd do to host a recent version of MC:
>get any normal ass VPS
>install fabric on server https://fabricmc.net/use/server/
>change online mode in the server.properties file to false to not use M$'s authentication
>install https://modrinth.com/mod/easyauth on the server for local accounts
>install https://modrinth.com/mod/no-chat-reports and include it in modpack, for good measure
>install https://modrinth.com/mod/fabrictailor and include it in modpack, for muh swastika skins and shit
>tell fags to use polymc to run MC without account, connect to your server IP, run some commands to set a password and pick a skin on first login 
And then of course sprinkle whatever mod sauce you want on top to spice up the bland heap of thrash modern minecraft has become. There's also some serverside optimization mods you may want to install, just search with server and optimization filters on modrinth.

As for why polymc, it's the cracked MC launcher owned by a guy that kicked out all the trannies that had infiltrated the dev team, so clearly the superior choice. They forked it into Prism Launcher, so avoid that one at all costs. Seems kind of like a running theme, huh? Almost like trannies try to invade shit popular with kids for some reason.

I wanna play la mulana but I've heard the steam version is a port of the wiiware version, that has some changes which make the game easier.
So where can I get the version that has the original difficulty with the "16 bits" graphics? Can I turn that shit off in the steam version? Should I just be a man and play the original 8 bit version?
First off even if it's easier it's still gonna shit all over you, and second if you actually wish for the game to truly destroy you there's a hard mode you can activate by reading a tablet a few times early on.
Replies: >>241739
There is no 16 bit version with "original difficulty", PC and Wiiware and Vita are the same (except the Vita one having a bestiary). But that's only decreasing obtuseness of a few puzzles, the difficulty of some platforming, and QoL stuff, the difficulty has otherwise been increased regarding damage, health, plus a few new traps. The original now is more something to play as a fun challenge afterwards, if you ask me, but opinions may vary.

If anything, I think the Switch/PS4 rereleases added some more changes to make shit easier I think? Never played any of those so not sure.
Replies: >>241739
The original version is freeware so you should be able to find it easily enough.
>be a man
La-Mulana is very faithful to old MSX games, by which I mean some of its puzzles are incredibly cryptic and obtuse, and not in a fun way. I think the only thing it does better than the remake is having a better soundtrack since a lot of the remastered OST is overproduced.

But yeah technically you just have to fake the response from either another server or locally, problem is depending how just how much server interaction there is that might be very difficult, especially once you don't have the real servers to help you do so in the first place.

Completely avoid the pozzed Enhanced editions and track down resolution / community fix mods for non-Enhanced instead.

Don't sleep on the Icewind Dale series.  They're equal or better to BG2 in quality depending on your tastes.  NWN standard was by far the worst out of the lot and only gets 'good' with the expansions which I stopped halfway through because it was Planescape-tier word soup and I just wanted more of Icewind Dale's emphasis on worldbuilding and dungeon combat at the time.  IMO, NWN overall isn't worth the pain unless you're a complete dialoguefag.

Explore every nook and cranny in BG2 in particular, some of the best stuff is basically hidden in some random house's basement.

Savescum like hell when presented with any kind of choice, and just in general.

If you have a patient friend with similar tastes, you can go through them all together in multiplayer.

When installing fixpacks and such, decide for yourself how much easier you want to make the base game (true grandmastery, werewolf form un-nerfing etc).
BGT / some version of TuTu might make BG1 easier or shittier, depending on your preferences. In BG2, you'll get to exploit cheese such as stealing and setting traps (they can kill boss monsters dead), as you'll probably have a character with good enough skill points in lockpicking and disarming traps.

How about the consoles themselves? Which are the good models and which ones should you avoid? Is there no infographic on pirating a Vita?
Replies: >>242887
>Which are the good models and which ones should you avoid?
There are effectively 3 models.
Vita 1000 Model:
>Early OLED screen that is much more prone to noticeable effects (burnin or mura effect) then later screens like those in the Steamdeck or Switch
>3G slot (not all 1000 models have it) that when hacked can be paired with an adapter to be turned into a microSD slot and frees up the cartridge slot for physical games
>Has no internal memory so hacking it requires having the bullshit proprietary memory card
>Considered to be the "better" built model
Vita 2000 Model:
>LCD Screen that while no OLED is serviceable and not prone to burn in
>No 3G slot meaning the cartridge port must be used with an adapter to use a microSD card
>Has internal memory so can be hacked without the need for proprietary and expensive memory card
>Less bulky then the 1000 model and has some visual differences and what some consider a cheaper feel
Vita TV Model:
>So ny took the internals of the Vita and crammed it into a TV streaming box meaning no screen or buttons
>Similar in function to the Vita 2000 in that it has internal memory and a microSD adapter would use the cartridge slot
>Requires extra homebrew as many games were prevented from being ran on the Vita TV by Sony and some games using touchscreen/pad may additionally require a dualshock 3/4
Personally I am too paranoid for the OLED with how it was still just entering commercial use. I want to get myself a Vita TV but they don't just pop out IRL without scalper's prices.

you made me recall my utter disappointment when i realized tamed creatures couldn't be directly used in battle on Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. pretty sure that had snake ladies in it, among many other cool monsters. from what i have searched in the past, there is a hack of FFTA that lets you use monsters but it was meant as an april fool's joke and therefore is not very polished and stripped out base game features (none of the original playable races can be recruited, you can only use monsters which can't equip gear). it is called FFT Advanced Battle.
>What are some strange bizarre choices for licensed videogames you know of? 
Dororo. Not so much bizarre by way of the subject matter (an action/adventure manga/anime with a clear goal lends itself well to vidya), but the timing of it, as unlike the Astro Boy license Sega had the rights to make games for at the time, as faras I've been able to tell, there was basically nothing "current" then regarding Dororo for that game to capitalize on, let alone here in the west. Nor was there the "novelty" of consoles capable of reasonably detailed 8bit graphics being remotely new by 2004, the way the Famicom, MSX, and Game Boy saw adaptations of various other Tezuka works. Always struck me as strange it didn't happen sooner than the PS2, given that. Then again, maybe it's for the best they waited until then, as the arm blades being shorter than an actual sword can still work well enough in a 3D setting without the player taking damage from merely touching an enemy, whereas I could imagine them being an utter joke if it had been a sidescroller on the NES or something, like the player's swords in The Legend of Kage.

There's also an 8bit platformer based on The Great Gatsby, but I'm not sure if that really counts when the joke was to use a property that would be baffling to try to turn into a game, and while it can be played as an NES rom, it's actually a conversion of a flash game as a throwback, and not something anyone lost money on buying the rights to.

Having personally seen a ton of early SSDs lose data when unpowered I don't think I'll ever trust them to store anything important.
I dunno, I have a Qanba Q1 I bought on the advice of that guide and it's still rocking after pulling the PCB and cramming in a Brook UFB, then replacing the stock buttons with Sanwas because after the UFB it was dirt cheap in comparison. I even got the player LEDs and crappy membrane buttons on the top edge working by ripping the wires out of the connector and jamming them onto the PCB header, it was a somewhat orky process albeit with no duct tape involved. Everybody goes nuts for the table clamps for some reason so I haven't looked that hard into replacing the case with something more robust.
>madcatz from the previous gen

I know. But most guns appears on western games. And for the sole reason for a gun appearing the game rating goes up, that's why games that have a +16 in europe/america have a +18 in japan. The GTA games for example doesn't have blood in the japanese version. No blood, no tits, no dismemberment. All the fun things are not allowed it seems. But it seems that those fuckers don't care about it that much or something, because they are the ones who made those gore vore rape games with little girls.

Probably because it's not especially graphic when it comes to blood, plus the chibi rendering style. Most Tales games used to use blood really sparingly. CERO has also gotten more strict over the years, so the HD version (that is, the bundle with Symphonia 2) has it as a B rating. Abyss also went from All-Ages on the PS2 to an A rating on the 3DS. Same with Dragon Quest VIII, though in that case Square opted to censor the 3DS version globally to get that A rating.

> And gore has to be censored as well.
Does it though? I mean, I know various native Japan PS2 games, like Berserk, Dororo, Shadow Hearts, and Onimusha that got away with being fairly blood with simply an additional "red triangle" grotesque content warning in addition to their CERO ratings, if from the period after CERO came to be. Did that ratings option outright disappear in more recent generations as CERO in general got stricter (that was sixth gen, after all, with much higher limits for graphical output now) and thus games actually do have to be less gory now, or do most Japanese publishers just opt to take the easy way out and censor when they don't absolutely have to?

Tons of hentai artists bend over backwards to go overkill to censor their work. When I think of this and consider your question, I'd guess yes they'd take the easy way out.

The thing about their porn censorship is that there actually aren't any rules, if the police determine it to be obscene then they can arrest someone no matter how censored it is. I guess some artists go overboard because they think that's where the safe line is, even though there isn't one.
I don't know why they still don't remove the porn censorship. Maybe is because nobody wants to be the first one to say: "Hey guys, maybe we shouldn't put a black box on a cock,  i want to be able to see pussies"
Replies: >>243240
I guess the same reason they don't do anything about CERO, they are complacent by nature and don't want to rock the boat. They are also lawcucks who believe the law is absolute and don't really challenge it, that's why they are so hard on piracy. In reality they should just be ignoring this censorship law.

It will definitely be the death of their porn industry though. There's more and more competition these days, so if they don't do something about the censorship they will be driven out of the market.
