Thread: Thoughts on Movie Based Games?

Started by: Lance_Lance_

Personnaly, i think movie games are kinda "random".
Sometimes, it's garbage, but sometimes, it's great and innovative.

I think it really depends on who's doing the movie game, and what has been asked for the game by the producers / whoever it is.

Still, in general, imo they're mostly bad or barely decent. I mean, sure some of them aren't THAT bad, but they're not innovative either in any way, they're games... simplistic games.

As long as you're fine with uploading it there's no problem, especially if you're going to improve it.

Thread: Can we submit a time if the run is posted on Youtube?

Started by: Kana_MojoKana_Mojo

As far as i know submitting a run with youtube is fine.
As long as there's a video, from youtube, dailymotion, twitch highlights or anything, it's fine.

Hello. I wish to become a Ratchet Deadlocked / Gladiator moderator. I know alot of the game and currently hold the number 1 spot on Any%. Also I was wondering if you could add a new category (the game has difficulty levels aswell) so for example Any% in Gladiator/Hero difficulty level and NG+ in Exterminator level.

Did you even contact any of the moderators yet ? This thread is supposed to be used as a last resort.

^ that might help, about emulators

Besides the list in there, i suggest asking the community of the game you plan to run just in case.

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.

Thread: Acceptable emulators

Started by: hummusnerdhummusnerd

Honestly, i have no idea about that.

But apparently there's a better GBA emulator now, called Bizhawk.
I haven't tried it yet, but from what i've heard it's better for most games, it emulates the lag better and other stuff.
Maybe that will help.

Also, i suggest you ask the minish cap community a bit, maybe some of them already uses Bizhawk, or maybe they use something else ?
You might get a better answer there.
