how do you get good at master cup in f-zero x?
I fucking swear I can't reach 1st place at all, the CPU just reaches me in a flash even if I'm boosting like crazy.

>> No.5374705

it's basically about the acceleration vs. max speed bar in the beginning. adjust it based on how the racing map looks. you absolutely have to start slow and still have a car that boosts nicely by itself and curves well too and never hit any obstacle. then you will win. I think I won that cup once. It was either with Pico or that android dude with the red vehicle.

What does it matter if it was the right choice or not? Both games have become easily available and one can still try them out if they still haven't for some weird reason and considering the biggest part of the discussion here is whether SMB2US or SMB2JP is the better game it's just a matter of taste and what game you'd rather play between the two.

I mean, people have been posting about and playing tons of games that never got an official western release (and never will) and became favorites regardless of whether they were official here or not. The internet has made it even easier to become familiar with those imports and whether it's through emulation of any kind of physical import from Japan, never before have those games gotten more attention here. On the other hand there are a lot of games that did get an official release but have more or less become forgotten or are considered to be not so special anymore for god knows what reason.

Seriously, hindsight bias. Ever heard of that OP?

Only the custom microcodes are scantly documented. But that's not the only issue as noted up above.

I often fantasise about writing a faithful, 1:1 N64 emulator. As in, BSNES tier.

Surely it wouldn't be that hard to implement RDP in shader logic.

*CPU suddenly writes into the framebuffer without any warning*
What now?

>> No.5374698

>*CPU suddenly writes into the framebuffer without any warning*

Well, the N64 CPU runs at 93.95 MHz, and the GPU runs at 62.5 MHz, so I am assuming on a modern system there would be plenty of time to fake this.

So the host CPU is emulating the N64 CPU and the host GPU is emulating the N64 GPU... so the emulator can setup a fake framebuffer in system RAM for the emulated CPU to write to, and the emulator can transfer this to the host GPU presumably in time for the emulated GPU to think that the the emulated CPU had actually written to its framebuffer for real.

If I am drastically wrong about this, please let me know so I can kill my fantasy.

>> No.5374702

Just for clarification, I wasn't thinking of emulating "higher level" operations on the GPU, such as vertex shading. I mean, I wouldn't translate a RDP "draw triangle" to a "draw triangle" in modern shader language.

What I would do is implement every RDP command using "logic" shaders. This should give enough throughput to emulate the N64 1:1 at 100% speed.

The difficultys always been a meme pushed by the "Im such a retro gamer xD" types who played no games from the time period besides the Zeldas, Marios, Megamans and maybe Castlevanias.

I had a thought the other day, would it be possible to take the SQUARE playstation ports of SNES games and backwards engineer them to the SNES CD-ROM emulator?

Obviously it would be the actual PSX versions running as that's impossible but what about the possibility of ripping the cutscenes?music from the ports BACK INTO the snes versions? Is it possible? has it been tried already?

Yes. Someone already mentioned the MSU-1, but... you should really look into it. You'll love it.
It's literally a replacement for the SNES CD. It was designed specifically to add the features of the SNES-CD to original hardware and emulators, and it works on real hardware too.
Ignore the trolls (this is 4chan, the community is shit and proud of it) and enjoy the games.

Not real-time games in general, no. There are valid arguments against online FPS, MMOs, mobas, RTS, basically all the time sinks that compel you not take a breather. But I'm not sure calling Super Mario RPG a real-time game just because of timed attacks (like you were in the other thread) makes much sense since it's equally a turn-based RPG that you can pause and walk away from easily.

>> No.5374560

Stuff like fighting games, racing games, rhythm games and shmups are hard to binge play though due to quickly wearing the player out or even frustrating, that's why they're great if you're lacking free time and want games without much per-session commitment. Many turn based and story/immersion/simulation driven games on the other hand are the opposite in my experience. You have to play an RPG for hours to get anything out of it, so they end up being massive, merciless time sinks.
