Title: What are you playing?
Post by: dink on May 31, 2014, 10:18:23 AM
What games have you been playing lately using FBAlpha?

I figure it would be nice to start talking about things other than code&testing things... so here goes..

The other day me and a buddy played Vendetta (Crime Fighters 2/Japanese version) 2-player over the net with FBA & Kaillera n02, and it was quite an amazing experiance.

Today the game is BlaZeon.  If you're thinking "not that boring h-scrolling shootemup!" then you probably don't know about some of the awesome features this game has. read on...

Your ship is armed with 2 weapons, a regular gun and a fat/slow missile.  When you come up to an enemy in a mecha-suit, hit it 3 times with your missile, and you can capture the suit.  Depending on the suit, you usually get 3x smartbombs or a reconfigurable front weapon and a free life - after you die in the mecha-suit, you go back to your little spaceship.

The bgm is quite amazing as well, it really gets exciting in level 3 and 4.  In 2011, Sweep records actually released a cd of the game's soundtrack :)

Heres some screenshots (First: my high score/game demo screen with the small ship, second and third, random shots from various parts of the game)

Been playing Sol Divide, this game is hard as hell (and awesome).  Its a beat'em'up-shoot-em-up w/a side order of rpg hybrid with a really cool medevil w/sorcerers, demons and other weird things theme.  Also I spent ages getting the sound & music to work perfectly for this release of FBA.  So yea, you want to play it.   ;p
Here's a killer review of the game @ hardcoregaming101, http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/soldivide/soldivide.htm

Last night I came across a really great h-scrolling shooter on Megadrive whilst watching retro game reviews on yt, the game is Gaiares.  Great music, great game, a couple levels in there is a level that plays almost like the classic Scramble! by Konami - sort of like it was some sort of tribute to the classic game.
(2nd pic, this awesome dragon-type enemy is trying to take a bite out of my satellite shield!)

I was playing Michael Jackson, Moonwalker (mega drive) a minute ago! You did a great job with this game, friend dink.
I just have to thank you for all support.
Another game that I had some fun in these days was Robocop 2. Great game!

Well, last night I was playing VIOLENT STORM.
Unfortunately we don't have this game in FBA (yet?)
The game is very unique. The music struck me. It is totally different from other games.
The background is great too. There is a lot of animation and funny things going on.
Here some pictures:

Alright guys...
I having some fun with this game in FBA: DECAP ATTACK

The main character its a mummy without head.
Well if somebody wants to play a good game, I recommend Decap Attack for sure!

Played a bit of Thunderforce iv (megadrive, in FBA of course) - what a great game, the music and graphics effects are quite amazing for the MD, and the gameplay is exquisite :)  It plays kinda like one of my arcade favorites - Tengai, but in more of a scifi/futuristic setting.

Great one dink! I will play this game soon as possible, because now, I'm playing Road Rash 2! Very "rock and roll" game!
Here a two players action:

Killer! I love games like Road Rash 1 & 2 :)

I've been playing/playtesting Xexex the past couple days - Look forward to this one :D

Play the Japanese version of Xexex, the EAA/AAA versions (English/Asian) have been horribly cut-back compared to the Japanese (JAA) version.   With the JAA version you get different weapon power-ups & a better/smarter flintlock (drone/force-weapon).  The levels are also laid out a little differently, and more like Gradius.

... on the greatness that is Contra :)

Contra - The Hard Corps.  If you dig the first 2, you'll definitely dig this one.  Its kinda hidden as a clone under Probotector in the Megadrive games list (which will be fixed in the next version of FBA), which explains why I didn't find it until yesterday!

The games bosses are so dynamic and amazing, its really quite impressive.  One boss zapps you into sort of a virtual/digital world, where he assembles enemies out of star constellations which then proceed to attack you.  Then there's this cube of pixels, which assemble into different enemies such as slightly-off tetris pieces, 'copter and tank.  This is something you'll have to see and play for yourself as words don't quite do it justice.

Agree!
This Contra is awesome and also reminds me his rival from SNES, which is Contra III: The Alien Wars. Both games are amazing and comes in the golden ages of the arcades, the 90's.
Here some picks of Contra III: The Alien Wars:

Freddy - right on, I'll have to try it some day when we have a working snes emu :)

Yeah man, I highly recommend Contra III: The Alien Wars, as well Contra Hard Corps too.
Both games are so cool. In Contra III I prefer the graphics, the music and some backgrounds. Now I'm trying to beat Contra 3 in the Snes9x and.... what a challenge!! Now I'm addicted to this game (you will too, so, think twice before start playing).  :eek:
Ah, I have the Snes9x last test build, if you want,  just send me a PM.
BTW, now I'm playing Battletoads and Double Dragon. There is also the Mega Drive and the SNES version of this game. I prefer the SNES version, better sound/music and better graphics, but in the other hand I prefer to play in the FBA emulator... who knows some day a crazy programmer don't try to convert some SNES classics to our lovely emulator! :p
Listen the SNES music of this game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWWONVQIpqI
And this amazing tune:                     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5pGhKo5QVc
Crazy, hum?

Edit: The Mega Drive version of Battletoads and Double Dragon is awesome. So we can play this game in FBA and don't miss a thing. I highly recommend this game!
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: dink on October 20, 2014, 03:52:11 PM
Freddy that sounds cool, I like playing net games of Battletoads, but I never played Battletoads vs. Double Dragon.   i have the rom, but I never fired it up.  We'll have to give it a go sometime for sure :)

Nice dink... Always with good suggestions of games. Xexex I never played before, so... I will try it.
I like Rocket Knight Adventures too, great game!  :wink:

These last days I played FBA in Kaillera with a friend. The emulator is running very very good online!
We beat Gunforce 2 and Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
The two games are awesome. Gunforce 2 it's like Metal Slug. Probably is the same team.
(http://s.uvlist.net/l/y2006/09/26799.jpg)
But we have more fun playing Zombies Ate my Neighbors. It's a very fun game!
(http://www.gamefabrique.com/storage/screenshots/genesis/zombies-ate-my-neighbors-04.png)

Other day I beat one of the best beat n up that I ever played.
It's Batman Returns... Don't die before play this game (not avaliable in FBA  :redface:)

Hey Freddy - right on, I figured you would dig Rocket Knight Adv.!
I like how you can charge up and either do a super attack or fly off :)  And best of all, the gameplay is tops!
The only one I havn't played yet is Zombies ate my Neighbors, going to give it a spin later today :)

The main rom in FBA is Zombies, but:
"Various elements and aspects of horror movies are referenced in the game with some of its more violent content being censored in various territories such as Europe and Australia, where it is known only as Zombies."
So, the original rom is Zombies Ate my Neighbors!

Sorry for replying here and I dunno if its the right place but is FBA better in emulation specs from KEGA Fusion when running megadrive/genesis games?
I want to thanks all devs for the nice efforts dispended on this wonderfull emulator btw :)

Not quite, but its getting there.  Theres no megaCD(yet) or 32x, and a couple games flat out won't boot, but luckily we've fixed a lot of them.  For the games that work, theres no difference in emulation (that I can tell, at least).

iq_132, ha! yea, Jet Li rocks :)

So whats on my play agenda lately...
Contra Hard Corps - saw a little review of this game in the new issue of RetroGamer and that irk'd me to play it :)  Friggin' awesome game!
Hammer Away - had to test & perfect the emulation of this one in FBA & test something for _rm_
Blaze On - an atlus game with an _amazing_ soundtrack, and an awesome ship/mecha-takeover feature.  If you're going to play this one, watch the attract-mode to see what the takeover thing is all about before playing :)  Kinda reminds me of Paradroid for some reason.
Batsugun Special ver. pure toaplan quality.  with a side-order of special.

that's it for lately,

Ok, these days I was playing some great games in FBA.
First of all, I would like to recommend one which is blow my mind. Called Battle Mania Daiginjou:
Sure a game that you need to have in your FBA collection. Here some picks:
(http://www.retroplayers.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Battle-Mania-Dai-Gin-Jou-J-c084.png)
(http://www.retrogameage.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Battle-Mania-2-TS-Vintage-JUE-h1053.jpg)
(http://dc506.4shared.com/img/tz-aqSjr/s3/13d4baba930/battle_mania_daiginjou__u__-_t.jpg)

Another one I will not put images, because the name is enought for itself: Truxton
It's really a classic to be played.

The last one it's one that I hope to see in the future in the FBA. Called Night Slasher:
(http://img.gamefaqs.net/screens/6/f/9/gfs_31690_2_45.jpg)

dink like shooter games.... so my friend, here a game 4 you:
Musha Aleste.... in our great FBA MEGA DRIVE!
(http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/ideas/images/e/e5/MUSHA_Aleste.png/revision/latest?cb=20140217163958)

Hey guys.... I play many games in a few time. So, I have a lot of save games here, because I dont play for a long time.
I am stuck in Truxton... cant pass this boss! MY LORD, JUST CRAZY!!!
(http://i.ytimg.com/vi/9_fX0yXVDh0/hqdefault.jpg)

A curious thing happens these days! I played Castlevania Dracula X (SNES)... almost finish!
(http://199.101.98.242/media/shots/33301-Castlevania_-_Dracula_X_(USA)-7.jpg)

And then I tried a ps1 emulator and played this game: Castlevania - Symphony of the Night
The beggining of this game looks like a continuation of Dracula X
(https://girlsofwar.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/bonus3qx9_1_.png)

But then, the history completely changes and you are in a skin of a new character:

Post by: dink on March 08, 2015, 12:01:32 PM
Thanks Freddy :)
I'm a big fan of the Aleste series, with our new GG/SMS driver, we have 4 completely different/new Aleste games to play :)

SMS: Aleste I & Power Strike (same game)
SMS: Power Strike II
GG: GG Aleste / Power Strike
GG: GG Aleste II / Power Strike II
Despite the name simularities, they are 4 completely different games.

BONUS:
We support the GG Aleste II SMS conversion, which runs the game at sms-fullscreen, instead of a small window.  Get the Aleste II / Power Strike II rom and apply this IPS to it, to get a working/fba-compatible SMS rom: http://www.smspower.org/Hacks/GGAlesteII-GG-GG2SMS?sid=0c5a874a1a7820e6705fb42a4d461da7
BONUS #2: in GG Aleste 1, go to the DIP's and change the overscan mode to on, and this will make the playscreen much longer.

Taking it ez and having a bit of fun lately...  Usually its 100% shooters for me, not this time!
Magical Taruruuto-Kun on Megadrive (oo, Quiigi!).  I like fun and easy platformers, this one reminds me of Giana Sisters on ye olde C64 for some reason. Tip: if you can't figure out where to go, hit the brick that looks different, and it'll make a step.
The New Zealand Story on SMS, its a bit easier and more playable than the arcade version which is insanely hard.
Quartet on SMS, how the hell do you get the key to the exit on level 2?
Black Belt on SMS \o/ (crick for animationoru tip2: say with Japanese accent)

Gear Stadium [something] on GameGear, a nice little baseball game thats kinda funny sometimes (see piccy)
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: dink on March 22, 2015, 05:44:37 AM
Going seriously retro this time with the SG-1000 game Super Tank, a 1986-era game which is quite advanced for its time with regular shot, powerups and missiles, mid-bosses and secret areas.  It plays kinda similar to a regular shmup/shooter except you're a little tank on the ground.  Tips: take out the forts aka mid-bosses, which somewhat resemble alien satelite/spacestation-type things - sometimes theres a little icon in the middle of the blown-up debris. This takes you to an underground bunker/bonus stage where at the end you collect powerups to beef up your regular shot.  Fans of Knightmare/Three Dragon Story will have a familiar feeling with this one :)

Robocop Vs. Terminator (sms) - classic platform goodness, I had some fun with this one tonight :)
Playability-wise, its great.  Kind-of in the style of Altered Beast, but with ladders.
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: dink on April 15, 2015, 08:09:55 PM
Been doing a lot of gaming lately with our awesome emulator \o/
I recently discovered Chiki Chiki boys on Megadrive - probably one of the best platformers I've ever played.. to date :)  Excellent boss fights, and everything else.

Also Shadow Dancer & The Super Shinobi (Japanese ver) on Megadrive are very excellent, I'm halfway through the Super Shinobi and Chiki Chiki Boys right now.  I wasn't much of a gamer back when these games were popular "back in the day", so I missed 'em.

It's been almost a year since we added the excellent Kaneko Super Nova driver to FBA and since then I've been trying (very) hard to beat Cyvern on one coin.  There are 2 loops to the game, and the second loop is rediculously hard & to top it off: you only get to see the true ending after beating both loops (Ghouls 'n Ghosts anyone?)
I'm kinda proud of this one :)  (don't want to give away too much):
1 coin, played with Ferious, both loops:

dink, Robocop vs Terminator in Master System is identical of the Mega Drive, but in the Mega Drive the graffics are better.
I`m not a big fan of D.D. Crew, but is a good game!
I was playing Darius 2, but in the FBA the graffics has some bugs in the full screen (is not necessary in full screen, but when you chance de display)! 
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: dink on July 17, 2015, 10:24:03 PM
Freddy, I find that Robocop vs. Terminator are more fitting to the 8bit system due to the simplistic nature of the gameplay.
Regarding Darius II, I can't seem to make the graphics glitch and I've tried changing modes & fullscreen <-> windowed while the game was playing.  Can you tell me how you replicate the glitches so that I can investigate the problem?

thanks & best regards,

These days a discover a great game. One of the best arcades, in my humble opinion.
Unfortunately we don't have in the FBA emulator.
The name of the game is: The Outofoxies
You are a professional hitman and is set to kill another agent.
My fav character is Danny and Demi
Here some images:

Konami's Black Panther - friggin' awesome platform-shooter.  Havn't enjoyed a game like this in a long time, so play it. :)

Post by: dink on February 06, 2016, 10:01:07 PM
Today was the first time I beat 2 loops of Ghouls 'n Ghosts in 1 sitting (well, standing).  I was somewhat inspired to play the game after seeing a great video by Teddy Rubskin on the Megadrive version of the game ( video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Nw2g0jKLDQ )
This piccy will def. be going into my "collection" :)

I love any kind of giant robots that isn't Gundam. Nowday I play with Act-Fencer: Cybernetick Hyper Weapon. FBA can emulate it so there isn't any problem at all. Also it isn't emulation but I play with Ultimate Knight Windom XP and Slave Zero too.  :biggrin:

By the way... do anyone here know what kind of multiplayer the Act-Fencer has? Does both player play at the same time?
Title: Re: What are you playing?
Post by: dink on March 21, 2016, 06:29:05 PM
Act Fancer is a good one, for sure :)  It has turn-based multiplayer, though.

Post by: Pityesz on March 21, 2016, 06:39:19 PM

Ultimate Knight Windom XP should be ported to the arcade. It could be the new Virtual-On. XD

You should try Heavy Nova for Mega Drive. It's kind of a mech game. It's also one of the worst games I've ever played. lol

Thanks but I know that game. I prefer the Wolf Fang for arcade. But there is the Metal Warriors for SNES, Target Earth for Megadrive, but I like the Metal Storm for NES too. However I not play any of this nowdays. I play emulators only when I play with friends.

I forgot to mention the Bloody Gears for PC-Engine. That one is the first on my list I want to play with an english translation.

If you haven't already, you should try Banpresto Mazinger Z... IMHO a very good vertical shoot'em up with the Go Nagai's mecha robots (Mazinger Z, Great Mazinger and Grendizer)... ;)

Thanks for the tip, I will look after that game. But if shooters or shmups there is two awesome title I must mention:

Ether Vapor (the Remaster version)
AsteBreed

Both of these are dynamic 3D scrolling shooters for PC. Totally worth a look.  :smilie:

Post by: dink on April 11, 2016, 09:16:58 PM
One of my favorite new additions is Alligator Hunt.  If you aren't familiar with this game, don't judge it solely on the name, it has nothing to do with hunting alligators. :)  Its actually quite similar to Blood Bros. & Cabal, but even more addictive.  If you want to get hooked on an awesome classic game, this is it.  It gets even better if you play it with a friend, but its still really great with just one player.

best regards & happy classic-gaming,

I finished 2 loops of the best version*(IMO) of one of my favorite games ever - Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Dai MakaiMura) on SGX (PCE) and recorded a bit of my duel with lucifer and the awesome ending cutscene w/ baddie introduction.  This was probably the 30th or 40th time I've done this with this version of the game, so no tricks/cheats/etc were used here.

Its a wicked game, even on normal difficulty :) Usually if I stop playing for more than a few months I have to do a few practice runs before I can do the full 2 loop run.    Last night I did the first one (GNG) without any pause breaks, Not bring able to shoot up throws me off for a few minutes.. d'oh! :)

Hi ! ;)
I saw the movie too... IIRC in Italy it came out during the 1995... The movie (IMHO) was a very bad transposition of the original game idea, but the game could be "a whole different story" (it should be the only "Street Fighter" game with digitized characters) ! ;) At present Street Fighter the Movie isn't emulated by FB Alpha, the "Incredible Technology 32" board is not between the supported arcade boards... who knows, maybe in a near or far future! ;)

Last game I played on FBA was Great Mahou Daisakusen (known as Dimahoo in the west). It's a pretty hard manic shooter and the score system is rather complex at first, but it looks, sounds and plays really well. I like it. :)

I posted a video about it to my YouTube channel yesterday, btw!

I recently came across some really great games that I'd like to mention - they're super obscure/hidden gem-type dealies.

Magic Crystals A run 'n gun-style game, sorta like Marchen Maze mixed with Heavy Barrel mixed with Flicky.  Don't let the cuteness fool you, the powerups are awesome, enemies are really creative and fun to kill, and the bosses are super diverse.  The first boss is a real mind blower. :)
(https://s26.postimg.org/3n4gd12zd/mgcrystl-09-24-025656.png)

Rail Chase A lightgun style shooter, not sure what I can compare it to - I'll just say: for fans of Cabal/Blood Bros/Nam1975/Steel Gunner.  Shooting fun in a railway cart.
(https://s26.postimg.org/olamb42u1/rchase-09-24-025619.png)

Levers Possibly the best controls on a platform game ever, from 1983.    This might have been the inspiration for Tehkan's BombJack.  Watch out for the marbles & other baddies.

What's playing: Phelios (romset: phelios), advanced mode (chosen after insert coin), default eeprom settings.
Rules: Play in FBAlpha, feel free to use autofire and savestates.  No cheats/memory editing allowed, though.

Beat the fire boss: 50 points

Night Slashers is pure class.  You're right, Night Slashers and Crude Dudes/Crude Buster shares a common composer: Tatsuya Kiuchi. 

I didn't have much time to play games lately because there was a lot of work to do for the release, but, I did manage to get in a 2-all of Ghosts'n Goblins.  This time I got the shield weapon on the first loop, I'm not sure what triggers this, but it is quite rare I think.

Syvalion.  This game is loaded with awesome music, sound effects and gameplay.
Once you learn how to control your dragon, the game is really great.  Try making a circle on the d-pad while holding fire to go in a quick circle to kill off all the bad guys and bullets :)  It will take a few tries to get it - Move slowly at first!

Cheeky Mouse.  Those darn mice are trying to take your cheese.  Forget setting up mouse traps, just grab the biggest hammer you can find and smash them to death!  Nice wholesome fun for the entire family.
Note: Cheeky Mouse needs a sample pack to sound right.  Grab the samples pack attached to this message and put it in "fbalpha folder\support\samples"

Have fun!

Thanks for that. Somehow, your archive has a "one.wav" file that is apparently not expected by FBA. So FBA expects "two.wav" but not "one.wav". Weird. Anyway, I downloaded a cheekyms sample pack for MAME not long ago, and it didn't have that "one.wav" file either.

By the way, are those sounds impossible to emulate due to being hardware based or something?

I synth'd the samples myself and ended up not using one.wav, but left it in the sample pack incase I plan on using it for something else :)  At the time I did cheekyms, mame didn't emulate the samples, so I did everything from scratch.  The current mame though, emulates the analog hardware section of cheekyms, but it is so resource-demanding that I can only get about 5fps with this new emulation...  Due to this resource-intensity - I feel that at this time emulating analog sections isn't really the way to go.

best regards & happy gaming,

Updated....
+ off-topic things moved to http://neo-source.com/index.php?topic=3253.0

GAME 1. Street Fighter II (+ many bootleg versions/variants).

All of them played briefly to find what the hack or glitchyness is. Nice surprises.

Note 1: I like best the "Championship Edition..." (also known as Black Belt Edition sometimes I think), why I like this series / bootlegs?.... they keep the original basic punch kick versions of SF series and have a few twists. My best so far is:

- SF YYC bootleg [sf2yyc.zip]
for the wide low dragon punches hitting as dragon punch comes down it seems sometimes

- SF Rainbow Edition [sf2rb.zip]
for slow fireballs, fast hurricane kicks, fireballs with every special move, chaos!

Note 2: SF Fun Screenshot - see attached screenshot for fun circumstance captured - I get player 2 with a fireball after I've died (it was done by sending fireballs from both directions - greatgreat fun (throw a fireball, zoom to other side of the screen using Hurricane kick and throw more fireballs from facing the other direction - I didn't plan to die but was fun for me seeing the other player get hit after I died in the same place I fell!)

Note 3: I had ROMS for FB v0.113 and earlier!!! Had to replace a few (were wrong or for early Final Burn emulator / updated etc). Mainstream versions of Street Fighter II are fun too but I'm more checking the old roms now...

GAME 2. Super Puzzle Fighters II Turbo [SPF2T.ZIP]

Simple game to play, maybe hard to master or there is more to it... I never was taught or bothered researching but maybe there's some hidden tips and tricks more than just chaining combos of colours all at once?

Note 1 In future I could read a tutorial (or take a suggestion from community member) to see if there are things the arcade doesn't mention / hint already (the only obvious thing is the player select shows the characters strength or preferred way of combo chains - vertical, horizontal combinations for each character)

Note 2: AMAZING --> No "Street Fighter" in the name ... crazy no? Super Puzzle Fighters II Turbo....
I thought I was going crazy using the search... as I knew I had it and 'wasn't coming up in the search' which I'm learning not to take at face value doing these things 0 eventually just typed puzzle to find it in the list! Any thoughts why not mention of SF exactly even if they bought rights or something (it's clearly SF is it not?)

Note 3: SPF2TA.ZIP (ASIA) allows 1 credit for two players together! What a novel idea :)
I couldn't think of a word better than novel... suggestions welcome :)

GAME 3. Pacman - [PACMANIA.zip / PACPLUS.ZIP [B&W VERSION] / PACMANBL.zip
MY BEST = PACPLUS.ZIP [B&W VERSION]
I had these and tested them - I must have kept them as I liked them and are pretty solid as a super-minimal simple game and even nerve racking at times... which I really like! Chomp Chomp.

Note 1: The PacMania seems 'unresponsive' or I mean I have to hold the direction on the keyboard to make sure Pacman goes there... more specifically I mean that playing the older PACPLUS.ZIP you press direction (like up) well before any turn and it seems to save the input and turn at the next available point. Pacman goes up long after you press the direction. PacMania more needs pressing exactly at the corner or holding NOT saving input before... It's a shame as I like the 3D / Mania version of Pacman but and may I'm simply used to planning well with keyboard input much before turns!... Yeah I tested it again and holding down a direction is recommended otherwise one can often and easily miss a turn (which is quite important for this game!)

Yours truly Ken,
I mean Ryu, or sometimes Guile...
even EX Plus Chun-Li
or standard Zangief on my best days

----------------------------------------
EXTRA STUFF MAYBE UNEEDED / THINKING ABOUT FOR NEXT EDIT OF POST (AND MY THOUGHTS)

Thanks (if only gaming paid eh? ...well that's the problem with money, it assumes people want to be paid or measured in such ways... as consumers... at least people could give us the credit and food for playing and making all these things  :) Keeping the vibe alive is worth our efforts!)

Ok off to training ...(again - the 2nd day I'm working out while editing all the ideas and taking a break by training!)

Personal Pictures: If there is a place on the forum for putting more personal photos (not too personal) let me know - not cosplay https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosplay (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosplay) tho!...?... but seeing some cosplay sites years before did swing me on how cool it is to be your character or player, but maybe I'm the real training type, in the training hall and working out - that might be my cosplay!)
Could put it as my avatar?... done

Probably because half of the characters do not come from Street Fighter. On a side note, it's made by Capcom, so they didn't have to buy any rights, the IPs were theirs to use.

I'm trying to end my childhood without success. This game is driving me crazy, but I'm going to finish it. The name of the challenge: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - NES, also avaliable in Playchoice-10. I will beat this game. This is personal!  :mad:

The fact i managed to finish this game at the age of 10 somehow frightens me :eek:. At the time i had a new game maybe twice a year, so finishing it was mandatory, now i wouldn't have the patience :p.

I finished the PC version when I was a kid, back when it was released. It looked very similar, but I don't know if the NES version is harder or not...

Supposedly the PC port needed a wall-hack cheat code to be finished because of a bug in the 3rd level : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teenage_Mutant_Ninja_Turtles_(NES_video_game). I know there was several variants of this game, funny thing : screenshots at the back of the NES version i own are from a different version (the screen displayed is slightly different in the game)

I never heard about the PC version. But according to wikipedia: "The game was ported to various home computer platforms in 1990, including the Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum, Atari ST and Amiga." (...) "It was also released in 2007 on the Wii's Virtual Console." The NES version is hard as hell! I finished with saved game or I'd go mad. I also had this game when I was a kid, as I said before, but I never beated. Here the cartridge, with the amazing art:

Hmm, no. I definitely had the DOS version, and never needed a cheat code to finish the game. If that info is true, that means there's more than one DOS version.

Edit: it seems it was a bug in the US release that was fixed in the European one (https://youtu.be/cZLed1krEEQ?t=75). I'm from France, so that'd explain why I didn't encounter this bug.

I made 2 software-buying mistakes in my lifetime...
1: buying TMNT for PC after watching friends play the NES version
2: buying Ducktales for C64 after watching friends play the NES version.  <-possibly the worst mistake ever, thinking it would be anything like the NES game.

oh well :)

My 3 bros and I pooled our money to buy TMNT for PC... but in the end, we didn't regret it. We had fun with it. Back then, you couldn't be too picky; when you were stuck with one or more bad games, you played them to death anyway. I've played much worse games than TMNT for PC. It's a masterpiece compared to Fatman for the Mega Drive, for example.

I had a Super Nintendo, but I never played Metal Warriors. It's a classic, 4 sure. I will play some day. I'm too busy now, so I'm playing games that do not require me a lot of time. Lately I've played FATAL FURY SPECIAL. Great classic! One of my favorite fighting games of all time. I enjoy playing with Geese Howard!

Real Bout Fatal Fury Special NeoGeoCD is really nice - if you didn't try it yet with the new NeoGeoCD emulation, I highly recommend it. 

Of course, I always choose Terry Bogard.

I loved how he was both a shoto and a charge character back then  :biggrin:

With Kof series, i rarely played a match wihout Terry in my team. He is a perfect combination of cheese and coolness, both colorful and uplifting  :wink:

I'll play the NEOGEO CD version of RBFF and thanks for the advice, Dink. I have good memories of the PS1 version, called Real Bout Fatal Fury Dominated Mind. I played that game a lot at the time. It have many features, with a new boss and playable character.
