Thread: Emulator Runs ?

Yeah, roms are understandable that it's not allowed. And well, MESS I guess is easy to find anyway, so I don't think putting that in the resources would be bad then.

I'm pretty sure I dabbled with MESS before, but possibly an old version of it that didn't run CDi too well. Wand of Gamelon was incredibly choppy for instance, Faces of Evil also acted up. Anyway, I'd love to see it at least 😃

Excellent, I'd love that 😃

I'm not sure if putting the emulator in the resources tab will lead to legal issues though, haven't checked how other leaderboards deal with that (if at all).

I do know that there's a sizeable amount of people wanting to do a blind race of this sometime, so I'd love to fiddle a bit with it and set up a package to get that race going in some time 😃

Due to the rollback my last post was removed and I was logged out, so didn't see the pending run.

First of all, congrats with the run, that's a solid time 😃

We've noticed that the loading of the emulator was quite a bit faster than a regular CDi and the regular gameplay also seems faster (though possibly not as fast as the rare CDi 370 that PDT has). Because of this, we did decide to create an emulator tab for the 3 categories (Any%, 100%, All Cutscenes).

I'm glad to see that an emulator is now a proper option to play the game though! This will open things up quite a bit for people who've been wanting to play the game, but didn't want to shell out a lot of money (especially in the US) to get started on it.

Just out of curiosity, which (exact) emulator are you using? And the BGM only coming from my left speaker is a quirk of it?

@blueYOSHI Thanks, that fixed it. Not really a bug then, more like a weird feature? 😛

I've noticed a weird bug in the Fairytale Fights leaderboard.

When going to the ftf page (https://www.speedrun.com/ftf/full_game), no runs are visible. This seems caused by the Character filter, which is by default on Any. When switching the filter to any of the characters, and then back to Any, the (only) run becomes visible. This seems to be a bug? Or am I missing something?

Alright, apparently I didn't know too much about it (or well, about there not being a region lock for US/JPN), and will be going for the SFC without the chip, but just the case modded so it can accept US SNES cartridges. So it should function as a normal SNES 🙂

Thanks!

Thread: Opinion on modded Super Famicom

Started by: GrumpmeisterGrumpmeister

A small introduction; I own a PAL SNES (as I am from Europe), but as it is known, some games are in a distinct disadvantage when ran on a PAL device. So, I've been looking for a NTSC SNES and ran into a Super Famicom with a Supercic chip. From what I understood, this basically removes the region lock of the games and plays them at the hz they're supposed to be played at (mostly a necessity for PAL, but I wouldn't use it for that since I have a PAL SNES).

What is the stance of the community towards a device like this? Would the runs be legit on it? Technically it's ran on the actual hardware, so it's not emulated, but I wanted to ask just in case before I'd purchase one.

Thanks in advance!
