When i see that guide i can't help but ask myself if he's really french... or if someone who isn't just copy-pasted a poor translation of what they typed.

Thread: Console and Emulator differences

Started by: xDrHellxxDrHellx

Since i made a topic about the routes, may as well make one explaining how console and emulator works for Boktai.

Currently, there's 2 ways to play Boktai:

- Using an emulator with the Sunlight Patch
- Using a GBA, NDS, or the GameBoy Player on NGC with a BlackLight OR an UV flashlight.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Using an Emulator with the Sunlight Patch

This is the easier way of playing Boktai. With the patch, you can change the sunlight whenever you want, you can even have it at max, wich rarely happens on console, unless you're using special items and such, but it's not important for now.

But there's one problem: raising the sunlight with the patch can take a bit, and you basically raise it block by block, wich makes some strats do less damages (for example, using the sunlight against the Count will do less damages than with max sunlight).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Using the BlackLight / UV flashlight on a console

Normal light isn't detected by the solar sensor on the cartridges, only UV light are (cos', you know, the Sunlight sends some). Thus, only flashlights that emits UV light will affect the solar sensors. Blacklight emits some too.

Now, about the risks;
- If you're using a blacklight, make sure to turn it off whenever you don't need it (example: dialogs), otherwise the blacklight can get really hot after some time (2 - 3h+)

- Temperature affects the sunlight, in a way, the hotter the blacklight is, the more sunlight you will get, but that also increases your chances of getting an overheat during runs (wich is a reset)

- About UV flashlights, i do NOT know about temperatures, but one thing's for sure; you gotta turn it off whenever you don't need it too. If not for the flashlight itself, do it for the cartridge, would be a shame to break the sensor or anything during runs, right ?

- I'll put a link to an UV flashlight that currently, both I and DarkSun (Boktai 2 runner) uses. I have been told that not all UV flashlight works, so that way, you're sure to find one that works with the games. Plus, this flashlight gives more sunlight right off the bat compared to blacklights.

Anyway, any situation in-game where the blacklight / UV flashlight are better than the Sunlight Patch on emulator... well, there actually IS one.
When you switch these ON, unlike with the patch, the sun won't raise block by block.
If they're oriented good enough (you know, depending on where the cardtridge is), you will, most of the time, get atleast 4 blocks right away.

This makes some strats better, again, as an example, using skylights will be better, technically. Using the sunlight against enemies will do more damage.

That's it for now, thanks for reading.

For Wii U, i recommend Avermedia ExtremeCap U3 if you plan on using HDMI (or Component cables in general).

I've had it for maybe a week or two now (maybe more ? Not even sure), and it works great, both with OBS and with the software made for it (REcentral).

As for the original Xbox, i never had one so i have no idea wich cables it can use to begin with (component, RGB, etc).

Favorite Game : Boktai 3: Sabata's Counterattack

Least Favorite Game : Definitly Dead Space 3, sure, after all i've read i didn't expect much, but still, it's so bad (imo) that it shouldn't even exist

Favorite piece of music from a game : Not counting eurobeat songs from the initial D games, i'd say either Sealed Dungeon, or Bike Battle from Boktai 3

Favorite Video Game Level :
- Racing game : Irohazaka Downhill (Initial D : Extreme Stage)
- Otherwise, End of the Road (even if it's more like an entire scenario) from RE: Outbreak File 2

Favorite video game mascot : Used to be Sonic, and then... Boom happened. Nowadays i don't think i have one

A game that you like but no one else does : Well... there's RE: Gaiden on GBC and Metroid: Other M on Wii ¤raises shield¤

A game that you don't like but everyone else does : Super Metroid

What game do you think is underrated : At first i'd say "The Boktai games in general", but i don't think they're as underrated as they used to be.

What game do you think is overrated : Definitly Zelda: Ocarina of Time

What Game did you most recently play for the first time : Most recent is probably Gran Turismo 6 (wich is a disaster imo)

Btw this has nothing to do with your title, this is about submitting your time and not streaming by itself, just saying.

No they don't, they wouldn't take down the videos otherwise, duh.

Either way it's not smart to encourage it on a site, bad things could happen, worst case scenario, the site could be taken down because of some idiot encouraging piracy.
