    I can't understand this logic. If you're a fan of the game and a fan of the developer why wouldn't you want to see them achieve success on other platforms too?

    Considering even Sega has ported...

    This is cool, I really like how the game is coming along already and I hope this can be implemented at some point. The Mega SG can use wireless controllers, wonder if it could be updated to use a...

    What I was picturing is like being able to store sprites as they appear on sprite sheets, or backgrounds without any optimization. But I guess that might not be a good idea anyway because of VRAM and...

    I saw the number 400 GB in the Mega SD thread but maybe I misread it, maybe that is the maximum card size it can handle.

    With modern hardware this kind of low level compression is becoming a lost art. Most impressive example I have seen lately is Micro Mages. But if you aren't putting your game on a cart maybe it's not...

    I had forgotten Sonic 1 is only a 4 Meg cart, it might be one of the most impressive 4 Meg games ever made! According to Sega Retro it's using three types of compression, I know SR is not always...

    That's what I'm saying, I'd expect a game like PS takes advantage of modern techniques that older games couldn't use, also some of the compression algorithms were under patent back in the day. Since...

    I just looked through with a hex editor and I can't see most of the text... there are a few strings though e.g.:

    That's exactly what I was thinking. Back in the day a lot of games would store text without any compression. For Pier Solar though I'd be surprised if they didn't at least use arithmetic coding or...

    There's also a ton of text in three languages, I wonder how much space that used up.

    +1, this is a revolutionary product that I didn't even think was possible to run from the cart slot.

    I can understand a certain level of skepticism after the Paprium debacle but I say if you have...

    I would rather not see the 32X added to a cart, I'm picturing a mess with the video mixing cables, potential issues with modern TVs and possibly another power cord. I would much prefer a Mega Neptune...

    Maybe you're right, maybe it would sell well. The only connector I need is HDMI. I agree though it might be good to have options since there are a lot of people who want to run these consoles on a...

    It's always like this with retrogaming, people spend hundreds if not thousands on obscure yet mediocre games, but when someone comes out with an original game or hardware all of a sudden it's too...

    Yes, I'd even pay more if it was done well, I have wasted more money than that on things I've enjoyed less. Unfortunately I don't think I'm the typical buyer, I read the posts on a few retro gaming...

    I've been saying the same thing, that would be the dream system but I doubt it could be done for less than $500 and there are very few people who would pay that much for it, especially when emulation...

    Makes no business sense at all. If I was going to sell something in limited quantities I would jack up the price as much as I could, then I'd make the profit instead of the scalpers.

    That is more likely the result of the source material or encoder settings used. No MP3 file is going to preserve much content over 16 KHz because the last scalefactor band (21) doesn't actually have...
