    Yeah but even doing that it still frees up two palettes for the backgrounds so that still allowed improvement on the Mega Drive side. And they did seem to polish more the game than in the Mega Drive...

    You forgot the VDP revision mess (where the blending effect doesn't work on early ones due to manufacturing differences). Incidentally, there was quite a good bunch of talk about that on Pouët back...

    I said mid-stage, not mid-screen (i.e. after the player reaches certain point in the map it loads new palettes).

    Watched this yesterday then forgot to comment lol.

    My main complaint would be about the cave stage in mission 3… Dunno, the contrast is too strong, I'd try to play with the palette some more to...

    Well, it seems it requires long term use to actually cause damage, so if you already used it before it's not biggie but you definitely should stop doing it now.

    It's possible something ended up...

    In the case of Turrican there was also the issue that it, uh, flopped hard on the console (turns out that the health system it uses is a pain in the ass). Though now I wonder if they ever considered...

    To be fair it's also an old generation and consoles are always hopelessly outdated at the end of the generation, we may want to hold out until the next ones come out before judging :​P Though...

    Mark III has the same slot, so I'd think there's more demand than it may seem at first (from people who own Japanese Master System cartridges, basically, especially anything region exclusive). That's...

    Are we going to get nitpicky about what's emulation and what isn't? (hint: by general rule "emulation" refers to doing it in software, and FPGAs are more like reprogrammable hardware — Analogue is...

    Special mention to Super Donkey Kong 99 too (and that's a bootleg game).

    But yeah, it boils down mostly to picking a palette and then making sure the models stick to those colors (to reduce the...

    Don't get fooled though, this is part of the Global Game Jam. It won't be anything groundbreaking (or finished, for that matter). I did notice...

    I think it was just scope creep (they didn't even know what to do with the keyboard). Although it may have been cheaper than a full blown computer from the era.

    That said, they did have plans for...

    The Z80 would have still stayed there precisely because many arcades had a 68000+Z80 setup, and the engineers were looking at System 16 to get ideas (which, surprise, uses 68000+Z80). I don't get why...

    There's slightly more to it (e.g. a proper Start button and the PSG is now stereo) but yep that's pretty much the gist of it. Oh, and they fixed the MAG bit so it's actually reliable on Game Gear...

    To be fair, even if slow downs weren't a problem (are they?), I don't think I'd want to browse a list with over 100 items with a D-pad… (it's already messy enough as it is with a keyboard)
