  1. Quite a generic reply which I guess you’d expect from most companies these days. You never know though, it only takes one thing or idea to get something going.
  2. Sometimes companies listen, so hopefully this is one of those times. If they do I’ll be buying my very last controller ever.
  3. I was just curious is all as it is a good looking shader. Have you played this shmup before?:
  4. Is that just the crt-geom shader you have on the top two?
  5. I guess we are all different, my eyes see DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou in that category. I do think Battle Garegga is amazing besides the hard to see bullets, even though I know it was intentionally done. I just sometimes it is The Beetles of the shmup world where people love to praise it a little more than it deserves. Maybe I should not have used that Beetles analogy because that can evoke Beetles-rage depending who you talk to, haha.
  6. Hi all, I was wanting to make some 3D boxes for the SEGA Mega Drive that are not in the database. I was watching this tutorial and cannot find a blank template for the Mega Drive / Genesis. Would anyone happen to know where I may obtain one so I can contribute some art to the database? I should mention too that I only want the blank 3D template with no shadowing or spine as I have front covers and spines to add. I know you can get lots of stuff here but they do not seem to have the nice tang tab ones common with the EmuMovies and LaunchBox database. Thank you.
  7. I looked at that list and had never seen the number one game, Ketsui: Kizuna Jigoku Tachi. There is something about a lot of those post-2000s shmups such as DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou being the third game on the list where they just look too polished. They look too shiny and modern for me and despite whatever potential amazing gameplay, they may harbour my eyes just cannot get past the visuals which I do not like. I much prefer the more grittiness of regular DonPachi and DoDonPachi. Also, not surprising to see Battle Garegga at the number two spot as was previously discussed here how everyone seems to be a little obsessed over it. I will go through that list more because there is bound to be a few titles I have missed over the years.
  8. Paying money for games? What is this strange notion you speak of? Like an amnesia sufferer, I am having flashbacks of a time where I exchanged money for games. Seriously though, that looks pretty cool. I had never heard of it before.
  9. I gave Eliminator Down a good proper try for the first time tonight on the Mega Drive, it sure is a difficult game. Though there are definitely some interesting enemy patterns and level changes.
  10. You and me both brother. They can put a man on the damn moon but they cannot number USB slots on a PC? Ridiculous!
  11. So, I have the following controllers now and have tested them all: My order of liking most to least is: Hori FC4 Hori FC5 PS4 XBOX One Logitech F310 I am finally able to play 2 player games now because although RA will not let me manually config buttons the XBOX One controller is the favourite for my girlfriend and RA auto configs it nicely.
  12. Yes, I have swapped them around but unfortunately, it does not help. Yes, I did so here but unfortunately, the suggestions did not fix the problem. I made sure the Logitech and XBOX controllers are corded as they will definitely be distinguishable from the Hori controllers. As for the PS4 ones, I will just go wireless with those. It will be good to see the differences between them all for myself. The Logitech and XBOX controllers were no more than $40 each so if I do not care for them all that that they can just be spares as that did not break the bank. Is your Hori FC5 still king of the castle?
  13. It is such an annoyance. Because of the recent frustrations, I have had with not being able to play 2 player games with my girlfriend because Retroarch will not distinguish between my Hori FC4 and FC5 I have purchased but not yet received an official Xbox One Controller and Logitech F310. I am curious to see what they are like for myself anyway. I remember you saying you tried them and they were not your favourite but I will soon see. I will also pull the trigger on an official charging station for my two PS4 controllers. I have always resisted wireless, preferring the old school corded way but I guess I should jump into the world of wireless eventually. I never want my Hori wireless though, they are perfect the way they are.
  14. I have two PS4 controllers and think they’re absolutely brilliant, except for one horrible flaw! The micro USB connection on the controller seems to be very flimsy and susceptible to disconnecting or breaking. Has anyone else experienced this? Just curious how common it is.
