This thread is for discussing all things MAME and arcade allowed under the board rules. Also so I can share the romset I've been working on.

This is not intended to be a complete romset of every game dumped, but every game that actually works under MAME. Minus all the barcade, pinball, slot machine, pachinko, mahjong, porn, and other assorted crap titles most people would never touch. This also excludes arcadized console games(Nintendo VS system, etc), Tiger electronic handhelds and Game&Watch titles. This is a completely merged MAME romset, so all the clones(regional variants and revisions) and BIOS files are contained within the same .zip file as the parent game. If you wish to play a different region or variant of the game, just rename the zip to the version you want. The end result of this is a very clean rom list. No BIOS files littering the folder, and you don't have 18 variants of the same game to scroll through. You can also be certain that the game is playable, and is actually a videogame and not something else.

Keep in mind many games expect you to have a joystick, trackball, wheel, or other specific controls. A large number of racing games act funny if you don't have the hardware it's expecting. A decent amount of sports games react the same way. It's possible to map a lot of that to a controller with analog sticks, but not all games will control 100% properly unless you have the right sort of controller for them. Best of luck to keyboard users.

I'm trying to update the set every 10 mame revisions or so, but I'll update if something major pops up, like a major new game or emulation improvements. When an update comes out, I'll put up an update pack to update all needed roms to the latest standard. All you need to do is drag and drop or copy+paste the roms and overwrite the old ones. Then I'll take down the old fullset and upload the new fullset. I'm going to try to keep from too many update packs before updating the fullset, but shit happens.

As of 5/3/2019, the current fullset is 0.205, and the current update packs are 0.205 to 0.206 and 0.206 to 0.209.

Download links for the full 0.205 set here:

I have a comfy complete set (including all history files, cheats, etc.) from 2002 or so with all the classics and just about 5GB in size. Was the last version before they added more modern titles and runs to this day. 0.61 or some shit, newest Rom is from year 2000 and was Metal Slug 3. The next mame already featured 3D titles, mine was the last with only 2D games. Running it with the EmuLoader frontend, works fine. Here's a screen cap. 3352 working (partially emulated are hidden in the GUI but everything is 100% complete) Roms.

Took me forever back then to get them all and I didn't even bother to update ever since. It's all the retro shit I will ever need (or mostly all).

Goofy Golf (Demo)

There was some game with a few different mini games. One was frogger-like? One had four colored skulls? I think yiu had ti solve matgs problems and pick a skull? I recall one being black and others being colored. One had some skeletons but it crashed due to file corruption for me.

There was some other flat gridded game with bright colored blocks, not Tetris at all (very static?) but it reminds me of Tetris.

Rats (killing rat infestation with a bunch of weapons)

Please excuse the vague descriptions, I was 6 or so.

don't understand how someone can be a retro gamer and be born after 1995. People born in 1996 like to claim they "grew up with" the N64 but they didn't, their first console was probably as PS2.

I'm 26 years old. So I was a teenager not too long ago, but honestly, my generation seemed A LOT more interested in actually play just good games instead of you Gen Z kids born after 1995 who only want to play the "cool" games like COD, Madden, FIFA, LOL, DOTA 2, and GTA 5. Hilarious how the teenagers playing these games are all hipster idiots who need to constantly rub in the fact that they're liberals.

It's weird, but if you look at those "Teens React" videos (particularly the Smash Bros. one), you'll see that the 1996 and up generation just doesn't know anything about classic 90s video games, anime, music, movies, or TV shows.

Heck, they don't even know early 2000s classics. Why is that? Shouldn't a 19-year-old remember shit from 2000-2005?

The PSone (the one with the LCD screen add-on) was released in 2000. The Dreamcast was released in late 1999. Both these systems had games being released well into the early 2000’s. Whether your early millennial faggot ass likes it or not, this meets the retro cutoff. And nothing is stop any late millennial, Gen Zer, or future generation from picking up these games to play and make it a part of their childhood or later years. What in the fuck is this pointless gatekeeping tribalism? Yoomers like you should be encouraging people to play older games from any previous gen so you have a newer generation that cares about curating classics and obscure titles of yesteryear. Why is it that gaming is filled with cynical juvenoia? Is it because you made vidya brands and plastic goodies a part of your identity? You don’t really see this shit in music and film where the older generation is contentious about showing the history of the medium to a younger audience.

TL;DR

Get a life, faget

Back in my day NES was all the rage, but before that I had ZX, had to load games from casettes and I did not know any basic, no manual. Will I recommend NES games for todays kids? _Absolutely_, buy raspberri pi, two joystics, install fav emulator and you will have fun for days.

That's not dadrock, and boomers aren't usually into metal past the earlier bands anway.

The real problem is that modern metal recordings sound so hi-fi and soulless and that replacing the original soundtrack with cover tracks featuring "better" audio quality is kind of tryhard anyway.

If someone's going to do remake the soundtrack, I wish they'd come up with a new FM adaptation made with the format in mind. Compare the original Adlib Wolfenstein 3D sounds to Doom's and the latter comes across almost as an afterthought.

Some of the creepiest times I had in Doom were without music. Played Aliens TC that way, just like the author recommended (in total darkness, no music, sound fx cranked up). Also played Classic Episode that way, just because I was using an old port that didn't do music. Good times!

BTW those are both vanilla episodes, you can even play them in DOSBox:

heard there was a light version or some shit in the making, might try that one out but don't expect much. they always pozz one thing or another in their "enhancements". i did like a few things but there was just way too much fuzz too for my taste. maybe good for less purist npcs and zoomer types, not for me.

PCem is a wonderful emulator, and I find that the experience overall is very enjoyable. The only downside, is that it requires a lot of CPU horsepower to emulate the faster Pentium CPUs. I'm in the process of testing out a bunch of old games that refuse to run on anything other than Win9X.

Does anybody else here use this emulator?

Uh I don't have boxart for most games. But I do have screenshots for all of them, and I used title screen except for one that didn't fit (so I used in-game screen, which still says the title at the bottom). And that site doesn't work for me, so I just took a screenshot instead!

This entire board… should just be replaced with this… this one… single image. It's the only thing that should be here. Nothing will ever be greater, video games should have just quit after this game, there was no need to try and go further. It is peak perfection.

The original version used a better script. An orange lizard is hardly a good substitute for an orange cat. The penguin looks better than the snow man looking thing.

Still a boring-ass game. Offers nothing but brain-dead padded-out gameplay.

I have a list of games that I make sure to do a play through every year. Some I can beat in a few hours, some takes me a few weeks. But, I always try to make a point to play them once a year.

1. Final Fantasy 1
2. Dragon Warrior 1
3. The Legend of Zelda
4. Metroid
5. Kid Icarus

ITT: The games you play annually.

I seem to recall hearing that the Japan-only second PSP version ("Goku Makaimura Kai") was the better version between the two. Just figured I might mention it.

I don't really have any. I usually just stick to games based around multiplayer or AI matches. I'll still play through some Wolfenstein or Doom occasionally, but I rarely play through the whole thing.

I've seen this chart posted a few times but it only extends back to 1988. There's also a brief history of PC gaming chart which only goes back to 1990. Why is this? I'm not someone who's very knowledgeable when it comes to older PC games but I've been growing more curious. Is there any way we can compile a new chart to include notable PC games which released prior to 1988? And how far back should we go? I'm not sure if it's really worth going through the 1970s but there were a good chunk of significant PC games in the early to mid 1980s that should be worth sticking on a PC gaming chart. Akalabeth, Zork, the first Ultima, Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.0, Elite, Trinity, Starflight etc.

Because before 1987, most "DOS" machines were IBM Personal Computers(8088), XT's(8088), PCjr's(8088), AT's(286), or at the ass end of the 80's a PS/2 with a 386 on the high end. Even the Total DOS Collection only goes back to 1981, and there was less than 20 titles released that year. Most videogames on computers prior to 1987 were on Amiga, TRS-80, CP/M, or fucking mainframes. Still, there was some good games from 1981-1987 that do get ignored, since most people just focus on the popular titles from the era like the Zork series, Rogue, Ultima series, Kings Quest series, Wizardry series, etc.

I entirely support anyone willing to emulate all DOS releases from 1987 going back and make images like you've posted. A "complete" history of DOS gaming would be awesome. And companion images for complete Amiga and other retro PC gaming would be great too.

These kind of compilation pictures are dumb. Especially one that tries to be as complete as possible, instead of focusing per genre and making sure no inferior ports make the list it just arbitrarily divides by console it was released on. Also one that includes recommended mods is pretty much a must especially when it comes to PC. This picture doesn't tell me what version of Rayman to play and since I can't ctrl+F on it it better has JJ2+ on there.

So /vr/.. home computer general thread. I don't own many HCs but I do have two MSX computers. One's a Sanyo MPC-2, the other's a Sanyo Wavy70 FD. I reside in Arabia and the MSX was really popular here back in the day. I'm a bit of a youngin, so I decided to ask my parents if they owned them as kids. My mom replied affirmatively.

I want to have a chart that covers the origin points for everything vidya related, as well games that defined a genre, such as SFII.

The reason I'm posting this as a work in progress is because I don't have the ability to do all the research myself in any reasonable amount of time.

Allow me to start, and please any and all corrections and criticism is very much requested.

>First game

Space Wars

>First fighting game

Heavyweight boxing (1970s)

>First stealth game

0077 (??)

>First use of isometric

Zaxxon

>Revolutionized fighting genre to what it is today

SFII

>First FPS

Maze Hunter (??)

>First Roguelike

Rogue

>First turn based RPG

Ultima

>First dungeon crawl TB-RPG

Wizardry

>First game with a story

???

>First game with a cut scene

??

>First of every genre

This is a base necessity for this chart

>First [insert graphical improvements ie vector graphics, first color game, first game with actual video/photo(s), etc]

This is also a base necessity

>First x-bit games

First 8bit, 16, etc, this applies to both sound and video

>First game with samples

??

>First Japanese game

??

>First rotary joystick game

Even things such as this should be included.

Wizard's Castle might be older than Rogue. It doesn't have the same kind of maze where monsters follow you around, but it's still a randomized dungeon where you fight monsters and grab treasure while seeking the "Orb of Zot".

On that page he posted the 1979 version called Hobbit, but there were later versions for various computers.

Then there's another different game altogether called DND that was written by Daniel M. Lawrence in 1976, and which eventually became sold commercially as Telengard (but there were various mainframe versions floating around before then). Have a look here for some background:

>Revolutionized fighting genre to what it is today

I'd say that's a very subjective label. First X is one thing, First Fighting Game with Special Moves maybe. Even then I think the first Street Fighter had special moves. I'd recommend avoiding vague or subjective labels altogether, and stick to firsts.

Also, I'm pretty sure Akalabeth did the turn-based RPG before Ultima did. Though technically, didn't any mainframe D&D game do the turn-based RPG thing before that?
