new Thread Description
This thread was originally created to encourage traders here at GTZ to do more trading, especially retro related stuff. It has turned into a lot more and I am so grateful to everyone who contributed to this thread and have kept it going for nearly 6 months now. I hope this thread will continue to thrive and everyone who reads/participates in this thread will gain some value or knowledge out of it.

We will still have Trade lists up here, though it's been a while since anyone updated. I encourage everyone to look over their lists and post updates.
There is also a section for gorgeous pictures of game rooms that active participants of this thread have shared. Feel free to share some pics of your collection or game room.
I will be adding another section for information regarding video quality of retro gaming systems on modern displays and how to improve them.
There is rather some extensive discussion regarding how to improve the display quality of retro gaming systems and if you are new to this like I am, you will find it very informative.

Old Topic Description


GTZ has become a marketplace where the most commonly traded commodity is PayPal. I want to start an effort to get some trades going and to discuss some good games perhaps you never heard of or interested in but want to discover/know more of. For example, I just got intto shmups after years of ignoring the genre and I love to discover new(to me) and rediscover old ones(Sonic Wings comes to mind).

No pressure here. Feel free to discuss anything retro. Perhaps throw out some WTTF targets and what you have to offer. I am sick of browsing people's year old Available lists.

Some examples:

- WTTF/WTB/LF
- What you think is awesome game/series/whatever
- Potential games you have up for trade
- Pics of what you have/what you would love to get/what you think is the bestest awesomest game ever
- Show off your latest finds/adds to your collection

The punish in NG is real. NG2 was... well, it was easier in terms of the reset distance, but the stage area leading up to the final boss is such a dog it doesn't even matter. I tell you what though, by the time you finish that game you're a fudging wizard at the last stage, knowing where to purposely take a hit to clear a further embattled area easier, what items to get and what to ignore, it's crazy. I discovered glitches in NG to make ever-spawn enemies just vanish, like in Looper.

NG3 there's a continue limit.

Ninja Gaiden is actually one of the first games I can remember beating, with Zelda II and Super Mario Bros. being the other two. I played Zelda II again last year and couldn't beat it, lol. It would probably be the same deal if I tried playing NG again. I don't think I ever finished either of the sequels. Maybe I will give those a try. (On the 3DS, so I can "cheat" smile)

The key with Ninja Gaiden is finding the spinslash subweapon. It one-hits everything including all bosses before Jaquio. It's still a round game regardless, mostly because of ninpo management and trolly enemy spawns, but it's better than without it.

I didn't realize this, and when I did realize it, I kinda ignored it out of habit. My mind is trained to ditch it as soon as possible since it's such a Ninpo vampire and I'm always slashing every item as I come across it anyways. For grins and giggles I did one-shot the first boss a week ago, kinda hemmed and went about my business.

It was on sale for... $26 I think on Steam, figured why not.

First death was annoying. Started getting it after that but the longer I keep looking for elements to keep myself alive and keep my mining tools alive so I can search for parts to fix all my busted crap I'm like "Now, do I really want to do this again and again and again for another 20, 50 hours?" The answer at the moment is "Nah, fudge that I'm good dawg"

No not something cuting edge.. maybe a mid to pretty decent i5 with a GTX, that 980 would probably be perfect..the gtx family can use nvidia game stream with the shield tv.
(And emulate ps2 like a beast)


OMG that sonG lol

The kids will wanna play minecraft on it too but that surely doesn't need much power. Will play some steam.on maybe quite a bit of it over the stream to tv but not like the witcher 3 or anything like that. I don't plan to spend a lot on a monitor so plan on playing games on my tv.

Dell has an alienware I customized up for 749.. but I think I could part it out for a lot less but I have never built one out of nothing but I've added pieces to several computers over the years. I may just go the preassembled I want it to be right and ive never wired mobo's or anything that deep and not as on touch with such things as I was and it sounds time consuming to shop and order and build. I think I've got enough here to fund it anyway lol

Just got back home from MO Game Con in St Louis area. Didn't make it for both days like I had hoped as we had a family emergency come up. Anywho, pretty good turnout overall, nice to meet some YouTubers (My Life in Gaming, Radical Reggie, Kelsey, John Riggs), saw the Nintendo Playstation, played some SF2 on it (famicom cart). Met Leisure Suit Larry and Kings Quest designer guy, Al Lowe. The vendors were all very friendly and talkative, most of them even listened in return.

Made some nifty trades and picked up a few from my list. I think next year I'm gonna setup a table so I can have more time behind the scenes.

Yep, all good and all boxed games are complete. I almost came home with SCAT, Gotcha Force, Splatterhouse 3 and Crusaders of Centy but we couldn't come to an agreement on those. CoC was the toughest loss, even though the box was really crushed they wouldn't budge off of $500 value. I could have justified $400 in a trade but that wasn't enough to get it done.

Niiice. Tatsujin and Super Aleste are both fantastic shooties. A shame on Centy but sometimes people don't REALLY want to move something yet and/or they sunk in too much to get it and don't want to take a loss.

Both of those have been on my wantlist for quite a while, just never really had an opportunity to get a trade for them. I've already fired them up and played a bit of both. :) Honestly, I think I was most excited to finally get a CIB Real American Hero, I've had the cart and instructions for a long time but that stupid box is crazy hard to find. My thinking as well that they probably had too much in CoC or needed a cash only sale on that one.

There was one booth that had a bunch of tough/expensive NES CIB games they were selling a large collection for Alzheimer's. The guy running the booth was telling me about it and mentioned coming back to MO later this fall to do a walk/run event for his charity. He tells me the town and company name and just so happens, it's where I work. I said, feel free to bring some games with ya on that trip!

Google turned up nothing for stuggle boating. Doesn't the game refill your health for the stage 5 boss?

Boss ultimate secret hardcore strategy spoiler:

You can literally beat him by walking up to him and attacking as fast as possible, ignoring when you get hit.

Got to Jaquio, couldn't beat him and it was 3 AM so I powered off.

Level 6 was just more of the annoying cheap deaths lol. But I think I can reliably get through it, some parts you have to power through instead of carefully planning

I want an Atari Jaguar. I remember going to Babbage's when I was a kid and seeing it behind the counter and thinking it was the coolest thing ever. Looking on Youtube I do not see many decent games for the system. Plus the price seems pretty out of wack right now. Anyone recommend this thing?

There's a few spots in NG2 where it's just best to take a tactical hit to just clear the jump.

@RobotVendingMachine Jaguar has the best version (not home conversion, version) of Wolfenstein 3D. AvP is awesome, as is Tempest 2000, Doom to some extent (without music it makes me sad!), Raiden's a terrible game but it's got a great port on Jag, Attack of the Mutant Penguins is fun and unique, and really can't recommend much of anything else. Even if there were, none of those equals the price tag of a jaguar or those games.

Nice! I haven't checked out your videos yet so I had to go off memory mostly but it was easier than I remembered if that makes sense. I haven't played it in like over 20 years until today? Probably over 25 actually once snes and sf2 and mk2 I mostly focused on snes.

But it reminds me of a mix between castlevania and super meat boy now. Mostly control wise. But the weapons remind me of castlevania for sure with slightly more forgiving controls especially on jumps.

@Lunar does the snes trilogy have better graphics and sound than the nes? I noticed disappearing enemies when too many were on screen at once. That was annoying.

I'm not looking forward to my left foot aging, someone decided to show me a scissor sweep in the 6th grade without my permission during recess, snapped the foot at the ankle. I was in an imobilzing cast for 3 months and a walking cast for another 3 months, they were afraid he hit the growth plates and I was gonna have a gimp baby foot forever, but after they took out the pins and I growed all up n stuff it was fine, but I already feel changes in the weather. And sometimes my foot kinda gives out and moves to the side a bit, and I generally almost faceplant when it happens.

Sure, this is the Scart to HDMI adapter. It can do 720p and 1080p. It works rather well but may have a slight lag so maybe not the best for fighting games.

How do you even set up that fancy Twitch streamer diddly do. Is it an emulator?

sharif
GameTZ Subscriber Double Gold Good Trader Global Trader - willing to trade internationally Secret Santa
* 15-Aug(#142)
You can use and emulator or a real console with a capture card. OBS basically captures anything it recognizes as video or audio. For console, you get a USB capture card that takes in AV (or HDMI if you like that newfangled technology), plug into your computer and have it capture in OBS. OBS then connects to your Twitch account through an authentication key. To be able to stream and see the game on your TV at the same time, either use a splitter or a monitor out if your TV supports that.

@sharif I'm pretty decent at wall climbs, I just don't know where to do them (I've seen a few performed, like that normally-a-three-point-jump thing Lunar was struggling with where I linked a pic with one of the ADs drawing it out for Arino on the whiteboard)

There are autosplitters for specific games that can read your rom and split for you, but most people just smack a key to split. I use the 0 on the numpad, a lot of people use spacebar.

DiamondDave

Emulation and console games you pretty much have to do it manually (NG it actually said no auto split was available, which should be one of the simplest to auto split for I would THINK), that's why when you hear someone speedrunning something you'll often hear them smash space when the split happens, and when they say "I may have split late/early" at the end of a run.

Okay well I'm guessing it's kind of rare and expensive so even though I love the nes ninja gaidens at least the first and what I remember of the second it's not like I'm going to get a copy to compare any time soon.

So I'm up to 6-2 but that's where I gotta stop for tonight. I have a hard time sleeping when I worry and all this crap this weekend with all those fascist pieces of trash I keep waking up worried about things. I can't even explain it why I can't turn my mind off from negativity. I wish I could only think about things that directly involve me but ..... Anyways maybe I'll pass ninja gaiden tomorrow if my nes can behave long enough I have a headache though it's just not worth it tonight.

Thanks for getting me back into this game though guys its a lot of fun.

I'll take a stab at it @Lunar. Unfortunate side-effect of sprite limits on NES with the disappearing dudes, but frankly this usually only happens with flicker and 30fps transcoding during broadcasts, rarely do enemies just vanish when playing. I've played the Trilogy on SNES and ...I wouldn't say the graphics are "better", more like they used different colors and a couple more colors than the NES, but frankly I think it looks substantially worse. I don't recall off the top of my head what specifically about the Trilogy pissed me off (other than the price for the quality of product you get) but I couldn't point to one thing and say "That's better in this". As a side-effect of being on SNES, I'm sure there's less sprite flicker, so there's that.

Off the top of my head, the cutscenes are broken, the music is way way worse, and it didn't control properly.

Well they didn't completely disappear but yeah I guess flicker would be a much better term. It was like they were flashing during gameplay. Or "flickering".

I love great graphics just as much as I love great art in a video game. The cut scenes during Ninja Gaiden and the way that these backgrounds look while not necessarily "great graphics" they kind of are because this game outside of level 1 is kind of beautiful despite its 8 bit limitations.

Also @DiamondDave thanks for the heads up about the snes trilogy, it sounds like they messed it up especially if the controls are off. It doesn't mean I won't ever want to play it but I'm not as interested as before now.

Nice! And I agree that the original game on Nes especially compared to other nes games of the time is very unique in how well it played and controlled. I haven't played the second game at all in 20+ years either but I remembered liking it a lot as well.

I don't know if you ever played ninja gaiden in the arcades but despite better graphics (again subjective since I like the nes graphics better despite obviously more powerful arcade hardware capabilities) in comparison to the nes version it's an inferior game as far as I'm concerned. There were some neat ideas which were kinda gimmicky to me, like I think I remember climbing across levels while grabbing pipes or conduits overhead lol. But the actual implementation of it during gameplay was just for show really, kind of useless. I could be remembering this all wrong though, so don't hold me to it in the off chance I'm thinking of the wrong game.

Ooh, man, I've got so many NG stream ideas now. Did you guys know NG was released in Japan on PC Engine? And that it had a built-in English translation? That was BETTER than the NES translation?

A lot changed including the music, and it's a bit broken (they couldn't properly pull off parallax scrolling in the background so it looks super messed up, but they fixed some of the weird perspective issues in the graphics on the NES version) but it's certainly interesting! Might even try to throw in some commentary as I play that one, we'll see.

I never really could enjoy the arcade game; with the NES version being my basis of origin, the Arcade game was so wildly different. Had a super sick continue screen though.

You hardcore NGers with your terms...slash canceling? Jump climbing?(I think I have an idea what this is.) Splitting pedals? Wut the wat?

Only particular wall jumping part I remember that was difficult was the part where you hace to jump to a lower wall to jump to the next platform which was hard because you can easily miss and die. And also there was a bird fluttering about that could kill you if you fail too many attempts.

You were doing jump climbing in your playthrough (you know, kinda!) when you had to jump to the side and quickly move back to move up a vertical wall instead of into a hole. That three-point jump you struggled with, you can actually bypass by jump climbing high enough on the upper wall until you just phase through it, but you've gotta be quick and it honestly only saves a second or two if you've got the three point down.

Slash cancelling lets you slash multiple times in one jump. Mid-jump hold down, slash, release down, repeat rapidly.

Jump climb's more consistent however, which is what speed runners want. You bone that three point jump or get unlucky with an enemy spawn and your speed run is over.

Personally I don't use it, three point's doable, and I don't slash cancel out of stubbornness. May try to learn it but not concerned about it at this point since the only enemies it's useful for are the bosses and the spin jump is a superior solution that I think works on every boss in the game.

Just run straight off your platform onto his platform and slash. He walks to the left side of the platform and you will kill him before he has a chance to shoot. Stop making things hard for yourself.

No those cut scenes really are fairly high quality, in all sincerity. They took very limited memory and got a ton of decent story and really good almost cinematic presentation for an 8 bit system. It's surprising how well this game has held up.

People don't even try anymore I sometimes feel like.

Also I do like old school RPGs, again I prefer the nes dragon warriors (at least 1and 2 since I don't know that I ever played 3 and 4) and the Genesis Shining Force games over pretty much any other old school RPGs, it's partially nostalgia I'm sure but also the fight interfaces too. Probably like how I prefer Microsoft Windows over most Apple stuff. (As I'm typing this message on my iPhone lol)

But yeah the over worlds in a lot of old RPGs look like garbage but they are meant to be that way, it's a means to an end. They want you to see as much of the world you are traveling at a time so you know where you're going. I'm surprised just how many games still use this exact method in RPGs to this day lol. Almost like it's not a real rpg if you don't have a world map the same way it was in dragon warrior lol. I'm still wanting to pop in dragon warrior again soon but I'm going to keep Ninja Gaiden in there while the Nes is still working fine to hopefully pass it before I try any other games.

The any% speedrun absolutely requires spinslash and ninpo management because it saves SO much time on all the bosses. It does one damage PER FRAME so it literally one-shots everything in the game. The only reason you can't use it against Jaquio or the Demon is because they zap your ninpo before the Jaquio fight.

This exactly, I seriously dislike the spin slash sub weapon. I prefer the midair normal slashes and I like using my boomerang ninja star like a shield for jumping around while not trying to kill every enemy.

I think I can only slash twice in a jump but it's not against bosses. And jump climbing is pretty cool actually I learned how to jump climb pretty decent from all my super meat boy gaming. If you want to be a better speed runner or even shave some time off of your other platforming streams you need to start playing super meat boy. It will improve your ability to play any other platformers faster. It's one of the tightest controlling games I've ever played with split second accuracy and it's just a lot of fun but frustrating as hell until you "level up" your skills while playing 😊

I say we stick with Ninja Gaiden until like @DiamondDave puts it, someone makes their mark.

When the guys from gamefaqs and I all put our skills and thoughts together to beat most of those mini games from WTF on psp we got a lot accomplished. I think @Lunar or @DiamondDave could bump number 82 off that list or come up with some other game techniques or something.

I'm sure even after all these years there's more little secrets hidden in this game. I'm not sure what but it's an older game and technology wasn't anywhere near where it is today. So there's probably some Easter eggs left unfound as of yet.

A 20 minute NG run is totally doable with enough practice. The game controls well and there isn't a ton of randomness (apart from the hammer bros). Consistency will get you a sub-20 time.

When I get home I will give it another go. The power light was on but no signal was coming out.
I did have it connect through my Elgato as well so maybe I will try directly to the monitor.

Well if it makes you happy and you have a world record that's pretty cool, and yeah I think I should get a copy of nes Barbie. I get annoyed with the graphics on the gameboy too easy.

Speaking of which do you run your gameboy speed runs on the super gameboy or one of the retrons or something? Like I couldn't imagine an actual gameboy or gameboy advance would be possible to record but I don't know really.

I use either a Super Gameboy 2 or a Gameboy Player on GCN, depending on if I want an analog stick or not. Super Gameboys run at a different frame rate, so mods have to retime Super Gameboy runs.

What do you mean cut a highlight? Are the times verified by a mod?

Using the entire stream as speedrun proof is way too broad. On Twitch you can take a clip of the entire stream, which would be the run in question, and give it a permalink. That's what a highlight is.

Each game has game-specific mods, who are people who ostensibly know a lot about the game and can verify the legitimacy of the submitted run. It usually only takes a day or two to get a run verified with good mods.

I'm telling you, he has this reputation. He's actually the guy with the most runs submitted on the site at like 500 and change. He's doing only to have the most runs and for no other reason really. He's also just kind of a doucher in general. He's had at least two usernames permabanned from Twitch.

I bought it, and it definitely feels like a Sonic 3 sequel. Fun, but the first playthrough is pretty much guaranteed to be brutal. I told benstylus when I watched him play for a bit this morning: "MY INNER 10-YEAR-OLD IS SCREAMING". (From joy or from terror... you decide. They brought back Blue Sphere as the bonus stage.)

If you thought previous 2D Sonics were too easy, though, you'll be fine.

ANYWAYS, never meant for that to be a full run, I REALLY fudging hate the SNES version. And apparently the dropped frames were the emulator's fault, not sure what was going on, everytime I alt tabbed back it'd run at 60fps again for about a minute and a half and then stop dropping every other frame. Fudging SNES9X. raspberry

Hah, that's actually pretty cheap since the last time I picked it up. Spent ...$95 importing it I think? That was complete and this is one of those crap listings where they're like "MAYBE INSTRUCTIONS AND ARTWORK, MAYBE NOT! CAN'T BE BOTHERED TO LOOK, ROLL THE DICE jerk"

Okay @Missile Ninja Gaiden (on Xbox) has all three of the nes games as unlockables it seems and Ninja Gaiden Black (on Xbox) has the Ninja Gaiden Arcade game unlockable on it so that's really cool.

Oh yeah, xbox ninja gaiden is brutally difficult, i've heard it said that black was so hard they had to fly in the developers to help play test the game because none of MS' testers could beat it.

Wow that's insane! Why even make the game that hard then? On the plus side one of the reviewers on gamefaqs said that Ninja Gaiden Black has so many extras to play through that you'll be busy for months doing everything.

So I watched until 5-3 I actually think it looks pretty good almost like they just added color to it and left it mostly as is but it did seem to be dragging when you were moving full speed to the other side of the screen. Oh and the cut scenes mostly look worse. And there was still flicker on 3-1 3-2 and 4-1 I think.

All in all there did seem to be a little slowdown at times but it did look really good and pretty responsive.

See, I had fleeting interest, and now I just want to throw up.

@BleedingViolet I promise I make that game look more responsive and okay than it is. Right from the get-go, imagine ...Super Mario World. You jump with the bottom most button and shoot fireballs with the left most button right? Almost every game follows this layout. Switch that around, bottom button now slashes and you gotta move to the right most button to jump. When looking at an NES pad it makes sense, when you've got your hands on the controller it feels super bad.

It looks like they couldn't figure out how to make the SNES do fades for stage-in or cutscenes, so that bit's bad, but if it at least didn't have to blink every scene change I could probably live with it, because the colors aren't... awful? But the music's terrible. It's all terrible. And the sound effects. Ugh

Yeah I'm not a huge fan of switching the buttons I'm used to but I still "want" to try it on Xbox I'm not saying I don't believe you at all I do. I'm surprised I can even get used to the nes version so quickly since I hadn't even played my nes in a month. But I have an ability to deal with terrible controls. I'm just hoping the lag isn't too terrible. And yeah that cheesy metal soundtrack .....

Dang, a boxed virtual box. Is that like a box with a Humble Bundle code in it?

I dunno what Virtual Boys go for these days, but I see people proudly post "Just bought this VB for $150!" on social media and think the world has gone a little mad.

Speaking of spending money, I got this Saturn lot for ~$11 a game. Nothing crazy, but In The Hunt, Winter Heat, Sky Target, Lost World, and a few others I couldn't have realistically bought for under $20 shipped or so. No broken hinges on the cheapy stuff either. I'll take that any day.

There's one boss in particular that's completely trivialized with the kagebushin, where if you position the clones at jump height and you are at floor level, you cut him and he jumps up, your kagebushin cuts him which brings him down which allows you to cut him and he goes up, this repeats until he dies. Also makes the Spider Lord rather simple once you get a Kagebushin in place.

Believe I had great success with one of the later final forms as well. Also those annoying enemies that chase you and are slightly faster than you, where you'd either have to jump back or slice behind you to clear them, you don't even stop now, you just jump up and cut and one of your clones just destroys them. I think they're useful! I don't like when I lose them.

Spinslash I get (though it's dampened knowing now that it one-shots every boss), but Kagebushin? Fudge that noise

I'm doing...better....

I'm almost done watching Macross (last disc tonight!). Then on to GCM. I'm making myself finish them before I actually go and buy Gundam BDs.

Macross really held up for me. Has a good message and solid action though it might be a bit slow for some people. It's certainly not as slow of a burn as some other mecha/space anime of this era.

Yeah, I was able to get a pretty decent deal as he was lacking the video and ac adapter. I have an extra genesis model 1 ac I can use and will grab a video cord off ebay. He basically treated it like it was just for parts since he couldnt test it, but I am pretty darn sure it works. Even if it doesnt for the price I paid it was still worth it since it came with box, controller, and manual.

I actually cheated without you guys knowing but I have to give a shout-out to @creagan for our deal today, he was willing to meet up with me since we lived pretty close to one another. Got a freebie since it was my birthday! Super cool dude, he's looking to unload his available so hit him up, I highly recommend trading with him!

I'm also at zero and live in the game-event desert of the southeast USA. I'm probably most likely to meet @lpeters82 one day since he's also a pinballer and I travel further than normal to pinball events.

It was just to meet up to swap trades. I would love to hang out with some of you guys. I used to travel extensively to Magic the Gathering Grand Prix's. And would meet up with some people in my MTGO online clan(lmao, when clans mattered)

Not sure if it's doable with my lifestyle now, but it'd be cool to arrange to meet at some convention.

I've only met one person from gametz that I didn't already know but she and her husband are really cool. I liked trading with them.

I make friends on the Internet all the time surprisingly enough. It's easier to tell if you have things in common with people and it gives you more reasons to want to hang out.

I don't know why but I got the impression you may have been to a street fighter tournament at some point but I could just be assuming that. I guess since you don't even need to go anywhere to play people online though what's the point right?

Xbox 360 controller, stays super comfy hours in man. Trying to do slash cancelling, THAT'S ANOTHER STORY, but for 90% of my work it's fine.

For the record I got to Stage 6 in ...13 or 14 minutes, not sure because my splits were WAY the fudge off on value, it said I'd only taken six minutes to get to stage 6, but that sure as fudge wasn't me. That was with some fudging around and slash cancel practice mid-run. Sub-hour's gonna be no problem soon as we work out a way to get the spinslash to Phase 1 with some ninpo left and actually get the slash cancel down, @Lunar, I think I'm probably on track to get sub-25 minutes once I iron out my half a dozen or so tripping spots, I stopped my run at 37, 38 minutes with Phase 2 down with some fudging around thrown in.

@creagan Superb condition man, I would have assumed they were opened new like, not that long ago. Way to go, those NES boxes are stupid hard to keep looking good.
