Classic Video Games / Your Thoughts On Modding And Pirated Software
« on: November 27, 2021, 05:45:08 pm »
Arrrrrrrrr matey, Ahoy  Avast Ye, Aye, Aye, Batten Down the Hatches or someone's about to walk plank.   ;)

In the past I've used many mods, and yes I have used some pirated software on PC games like The Sims 1 that you can't buy anymore too many working copies of the discs. I usually don't get any pirated software unless there is no other practical way of getting the game. Currently I don't think I have any pirated software, but I do have mods in which some I paid for like the developer mods for Duke Nukem 3D. That came with my steam purchase

If you can't find a game you want do you settle with pirated software or do you let skip the game entirely?

I was thinking about downloading ROM's but I am afraid I'll need to skip those Pokemon games for gameboy entirely what do you think, those batteries don't last forever.

Classic Video Games / The Original Retro Star Wars Battlefront Series Topic
« on: November 16, 2021, 09:08:39 pm »
I have the original Star Wars battlefront on the Original Xbox console, it's vary fun, and hard at the same time, I find it annoying when my brain dead CPU allies start dropping like flies, and I need to do all the killing by myself, it can really get annoying. For anyone who has never played Battlefront you basically are in a battlefield in the star wars universe, you can choose a side and then fight amongst the CPU in what i play in that is the single player mode, on the easy mode it's fun for  a while when you don't start losing allies left and right, later missions can be darn right impossible to beat, when the CPU AI is way better then your own allies AI,

I always have trouble seeing the enemies onscreen, I can't even blink my eyes of I'll lose a man and need to move across the battlefield all over again and the CPU allies are useless,

I am aware I that the game is meant for online play but I don't know anybody personally to play an xbox with or a LAN to connect mine to.

this game is suppose to the Clone Wars Documented in video game form but I can't get past where the off movie storyline takes place in,

General / Have You Ever Thought About What You Can Do In A Single Game?
« on: November 12, 2021, 10:14:27 pm »
Atari 2600 games were made simple, maybe with at minimum 10 ways to play the same game per title, and THAT is just talking about the different options per game most Atari 2600 games in the 1970's had more the 10 ways of playing a single game. including 2 player and one player mode variants per cartridge, fast forward 50 years later and pile on 8 more generations of games, homebrews and more sandbox games and think of the possibilities?

I was watching a mathematical video on youtube video about Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 the other day, and the man in the video was talking about how many different kinds of maps and parks you can build with all the deferent kinds of scenery, rides and stalls and colors in this single game on a single playthrough. on that single sand box game you can build

here is the video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fuh0p0RY_2A

SImcity on the Super Nintendo has 1000 maps to choose from and even more ways of building up on those 1000 maps, ever thought about what you could do with a single game?

Can you dream of doing everything with only 100 games in your collection ever possible in game?

How old do you think the person with the highest number of games in the entire world would have to be to do everything in every game he or she owns? and multiply that by games the people has yet to add to their collection? times? games yet to be created times added? times all the mods for that game on the internet, times all that to the power.

Can you think of how old that person would have to become? to do everything and play virtually every aspect of ALL those video games? :-\

Now times that with a sandbox editor of each and every single one of those games :-\

Off Topic / Do You Listen To Random Music Playlists?
« on: November 09, 2021, 02:32:31 pm »
That's all I listen to basically, sometimes when I want to hear a specific song or album I'll put it on my personal computer for my ears only, Most times I just want to hear a random mix-up of my music collection, SO now I just tune in to my own radio station broadcast from a separate computer in my home, Nobody hears talking only music comes from my radio station. So far I've had no luck gaining that many listeners,

 it unfortunate that so many people pay money for satellite radio while people like myself get 0 listeners and we do if for free and without commercials. If you look on the Internet there are a bunch of free 24/7 random playlist talk free radio stations out there. I am one of the best in my own opinion.


If you want to hear something at work? in your car? on your home stereo or head set or old stereo sound system? give me a shot.

Currently I hear "Black Sabbath's" song called "Sweet Leaf" in my studio while I'm typing this out, I am the link to my radio station in in my signature. I am a mostly classic rock station but I do play a lot of classic country rock music not the whining stuff either so. anyway just wanted to ask this quick question, hope to see your IP on in my home studio thanks again, Oldgamerz out :)

(edit) if you want to learn how to start your own IceCast let me know, I stream from a separate computer in my basement adjacent from my gaming room, and I also listen on a separate device than my streaming computer, it's fun to see how many IP's come in daily and when people are listening I also get note of how long a person listens, and what app there are listening on but it's just an IP address and a location of the listener no spyware here. :)

General / Post Your Favorite Head To Head Mode Fighting Game And Why.
« on: October 26, 2021, 04:50:24 am »
Mortal Kombat 4 on the PlayStation 1, this is the only MK game I've can call myself a master at, since it is the 1st Mortal Kombat game I've ever played with spot on responsive controls, MK1 MK2 and MK3 especaiy Mortal Kombat II the controls are not responsive, since the CPU gets to be faster then your character for some odd reason, all versions I've played of Mortal Kombat II and Mortal Kombat III are the same. Maybe it's that partucular arcade port? because after all this is an arcade cabinet right?

Midway fighting games even Bio Freaks for the Nintendo 64 has non responsive controls, so maybe it's a Midway thing?  to limit the player, with the CPU having the main edge to hit you in a combo faster then you can put off your own character animation, it's all the same. I can hit punch 4 times in MK2 and MK3 and only pull off 3 and a half punches,

 but in mortal kombat 4 I can pull off exactly 4 punches in 4 button presses, and plus a violent super punch for pressing it 5 times in a row, but not any those older midway fighting games it seems.

In MK4 that is not the case, you have spot on controls per animation, therefore your button presses react spot on to your animation instead of getting stalled for 100 milliseconds like in MK II and MK III

MK4 is the best old school Mortal Kombat game for as far back as the 5th generation, from mK4 the mortal Kombat franchise has only improved since then in my own opinion

MK 4 is also the vary first Mortal Kombat game with a practice feature and where you can learn all the moves and don't need a gamer magazine or the internet to know what buttion combos do what on each and every character. Out of all fighting games I ever played in my life Mortal Kombat 4 is my favorites how about you.

Street fighter 2 can get kind of boring in my own opinion after you master it but MK4 keeps me coming back for more bloody action.

Off Topic / A Question About Royalty Payments For Music
« on: October 18, 2021, 09:16:22 pm »
As some you might have know I run a live radio station and yes I have obtained an ASCAP mobile  broadcast license in which is a one time fee for royalty payment for using copyrighted material, as far as my research goes I am doing everything correct, the internet says I don't need a license for a stream but I did the legal thing and paid the minimum anyway,

Youtubers constantly talk about copyright issues with music and I am woundering if you think I am doing the legal thing as far as broadcasting worldwide live copyrighted music. I mean I paid the one time ASCAP yearly payment for the licnese in all, but I don't want to get sued still for using copyrighted music,

The problem is I can't just call the artist by phone one by one and ask them if it is ok for me to use their music for my no commercial, no talk 24/7 broadcast.

I have picked up over 500 listeners in the last 3 days by the way through an ap called VLC, it turns out by checking the mark to let my frequency go hog wild, I have a passion for music and I am currently one of the ONLY stations listed on VLC a popular mobile app that is used by apparently 1000's of people world wide, I am getting to be like Pandora now, no joke. I paid for the once a year royalty license what is your opinion on what I am doing.

First off I am NOT A BUSINESS only a man who dreams of playing songs that don't get ANY airtime on  most ANY RADIO station, I play the b Sides as well as the hits so, yea I am getting really popular on VLC being the only dedicated rock station on their frequency list.

VLC is an app, you can download for your mobile devices, I am The Angel Classic Rock Mix, and yes I am on a secured line.

(edit) I play more then just rock but rock is my staple

Classic Video Games / The Roller Coaster Tycoon Series Topic (A PC Game)
« on: October 06, 2021, 07:37:32 am »
I first got Roller Coaster Tycoon as an Easter Sunday present from my grandmother in 1999 it had just came out on the market for $50USD, I spent countless hours playing this fantastic sandbox game on the windows PC. You build your own amusement park from the ground up in most scenarios, you need to complete objectives to unlock new parks and other missions where you raise and run an amusement park, build roller coasters, and rides as well as set prices for them, hire staff and basically have your vary own park the way you want it.

This game is a lot like The Sims in that it was once a top selling PC game in fact one of the best of all time sellers. This game is also a go at your own pace type of video game and I love go at your own pace games, that don't require fast reflexes or precise timing also.

In Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 you can even build your own scenario to challenge yourself or others. However in order for this game to run on a modern windows operating system, you will need to first have RC2 2 installed and then download this program
 
"Open RCT2"
https://openrct2.org/downloads

To obtain a digital copy of this game you can also goto this

"For Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 download with all expansion packs"
https://store.steampowered.com/app/285330/RollerCoaster_Tycoon_2_Triple_Thrill_Pack/

"Also for the first game you can download this"
https://store.steampowered.com/app/285310/RollerCoaster_Tycoon_Deluxe/

Did you ever play any Roller Coaster Tycoon game before? If so, what is your experence with this great top selling video game. Do you have any intention of buying this game for yourself or someone else. It will run on just about any modern PC with the program in the first link installed on Windows 10 for example.

I think there are 4 games in total maybe 5? What is your opinion of this great selling series and did your ever play it before?

Modern Video Games / Do Modern Consoles Have Sturdy Controllers?
« on: September 05, 2021, 04:34:38 pm »
I've only heard complaints about modern video game consoles such as the Nintendo Switch having drifty joy-cons and consoles only being more fragile these days, compared to retro, in my own experience "ALL WIRELESS CONTROLLERS SUCK" they are all cheaply manufactured and have short battery life, OR the battery will work for one or maybe 20 long gaming sessions then the battery won't recharge anymore, at least that was with the PlayStation 3 controllers. I've also heard it happing people needing to buy new PS4 controllers due to the battery "I assume" will no longer recharge, of course you could take the thing apart and replace the battery, that is if the damn thing has not exploded and corroded the guts of the controller.

BUt wired controller do have their problems too, like how when the cord warps and breaks exposing the wires, that has happened to me lots of times with PS2 and even one PS3 controller

The 1960 1970's and especailly the 1980's had a ton of great lost metal music, anything from Bands like

 Black Sabbath, Dio, Dokken, Krokus, Saxon, Ozzie Osbourne solo, Metallica, Kiss, Iron Maiden, Motley Crue, Twisted Sister, Riot, Quiet Riot, Jimi Hendrix, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Foreigner, Boston, Skid Row, Firehouse, Slaughter, Scorpions, Cinderella, Aerosmith, Aldo Nova, Blue Oyster Cult, Bon Jovi, Cream, The Who, The Guess Who, Danger Danger, Danm Yankees, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Def Leppard, Fastway, iron Butterfly, Free, Sweet, Nazareth, Van Halen, Megadeth, Jackyl, Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, Starship, Joe Satriani, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, Bob Segar, Lita Ford, Judas Priest, Kansas, Kingdom Come, Kix, Guns 'n' Roses, LA Guns, Lenny kravitz, Thin Lizzy, Led Zeppelin, Loverboy, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blackfoot, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Motorhead, Molly Hatchet, ZZ-Top, Blackfoot Sue, Mountain, Mr. Big, Queensryche, Queen, Pink Floyd, Poison, The Quireboys, Gotthard,  Ratt, Rainbow, Accept, REO Speedwagon, Rush, Sammy Hagar solo, Steppinwolf, Steelheart, Journey, Supertramp, Survivor,  Toto, Triumph, Von Groove, Winger, White Lion, Warrant, Whitesnake, Winger, Yngwie Malmsteen, Eric Clapton, Jeff Healy Band, Gary Moore, (etc)


to bands like

Pearl Jam, Korn, Alice In Chains, Nirvana, (etc) Personally I like Alice in Chain's and Nirvana, but I can't get into Pearl Jam like at all, and metal to me? only got worse or died out completely after that point, But a few bands like Saxon for example kept the guitar riffs coming' but most just sucked after that in my opinion up until recently in the 2009-2021 things I believe are starting to get better in the metal sound in my own opinion. Bands like "Seether" and "Volbeat" are new and amazing in my own opinion. Korn is not that good either but I don't want to go there because I'll listen to Korn just because I don't know exactly why. ::)

I do love 3 Doors Down, Creed, Nickelback, Linkin' Park, Tool, and all those early 2000's bands though even Disturbed.

to stay on topic I want to talk about what you think happened the metal's quality exceeding 1990's and how do you think it fell, or do you believe it did, and lastly do you like or listen to classic metal music? :-\

I am going to make my first post about Metal Of Honor Airborne


First off I lost contract with this forum because I figured that why should I blog about games that a lot of you guys and girls might not have and probably will never have for the rest of your lives anyway here goes my post about Metal Of Honor. If you want to know about what the above means?

well they don't make 99% of classic games anymore AND? people pretty much swapped every single game physical game in existence so I am highly discouraged about collecting today so bare with me.

POST START:
I few months ago I was playing some Medal Of Honor Airborne and I think it was a fun game at first. But? but after a while the game became unclear of what exactly I'm suppose to do, first off in Medal Of Honor Airborne you have multiple lives and when you die you just take control of another NPC on the battlefield, until nobody on your side is left to fight with. the game is EXTREMLY hard, but I think it's supposed to be played with other players online, but I'm not sure.

All I know is I have the Xbox 360 version and, I have the game on the lowest difficulty and I am stuck whenever I encounter a tank because you NEED a  Special gun that yo NEED to unlock first in order to destroy the damn thing. Otherwise the Tank is invincible and can kill your man in one shot. and is also highly intelligent just like all the enemy AI is in this game.

Those tank piss me off because I need to complete some kind of hidden objective every single time in order for a Bazooka to even appear on the map, than I got to hunt down the damn Bazooka than I got to find the damn tank and destroy it before it destroys me? or I'll have to find that damn Bazooka all over again in which in in a hidden location, where the tank can kill you before you can pick it up every single time. Other words dealing with tanks in Medal Of Honor Airborne is a worst that a pain in the ass.

Medal Of Honor Airborne is a fun game' It's not like any other war game I ever played in my lifetime, you even control how you drop down from an airplane and make a landing.

I highly recommend it. but It's unfortunate that they don't make those old games anymore also?

Put it on your 360's hard drive it might preserve your hardware longer then it would using the optical laser.

Medal Of Honor Airborne is  WWII game. where you fight, in simulated World War II battles. That have already taken place in real life. I'd highly recommend finding this game on YouTube and watching it

Me? Own all the way :-X

the best thing in life is to own and have something you can buy or is given to you from someone's true heart and soul then to get some thing half ass for free or pay for something similar.  :-X

The Sims 2 franchise on the PC was the king of the Sims game series in my own opinion, I think vary highly of the Sims 2 and it's PC spinoffs and expansion packs, but I realize today after all these years how evil the vary first the sims people simulator PC game franchise was, in terms of brutality, cruelty and even child abuse also having true satanic violence.

 In the sims 1 your people would live forever until you either burned them or drowsed them or starved them to death, However in the Sims 2 a lot of the screaming and violence of sim people is gone  a lot since the vary first series on the PC. The Metal Jesus On YouTube once told me how he does not like the sims series at all, and I can see why. the first series had vary creepy  bugs done on purpose to scare people believe it or not. one was an upside-down distorted head face I saw once during some playthroughs,

if you clicked on the distorted face the game used to crash, with no fix., in the sims 2 a lot of the violence was turned into more of a comedy and the sims 3 had some of the sims dying of a butt fire instead of a hellish inferno in the first. Now the 2nd in the series was also a ton more realistic then the first, and although some of the same from the first game went into the 2nd series

In the sims 2 the sims would still catch on fire but they would did not sound or appear to be in absolute agony unlike in the first the sims series, for example in the sims 1 you could even torture little children and even animals.

 but in the Sims 2 the fire would not even phase any of the animals thank god and the children too and the adults and elders would somewhat appear not the feel pain at all thank god. In the 1st the sims game sims would have naked sex, but in the 2nd they did it in their under ware under the covers in private.

You could still kill your created people on purpose, but the 2nd series was not as bad as the 1st one and the 2nd one is just overall a way better game then the first because you can do a lot more in the 2nd even with only the base game with no expansions installed.

The Sims 1 Vacation expansion pack even without sick people modding the game had suggestive corporal themes on the children that misbehaved on vacation although I never understood it.

I will admit the sims franchise is fun but now I HATE the first looking back on how it was created to be in terms of morality. yes the sims franchise can still be brutal but than again so is real life most of the time

The SIms 2 On the PC for the win :-\

(edit) I don't abuse the people in any of the sims games and the first game was horrible looking back on it from today.

15
Even with modern PC apps like Steam, I will admit that the emulation on modern day PC's is not the best for some games (edit) I did complain before but I am over that now

Still I've noticed a few flaws as well as positives about the retro steam app and it's games, first off? I still recommend both downloading games off both Steam and GOG's online website anyway, instead of forking over any money on a modern day console in which on the consoles the games can be taken away from you in the future, by game companies forcing you to download patches AND closing down the game servers required for you to download the game OR the patch in order to play the game.

but in PC gamer's past the same exact thing happen, in fact that is where console industry I believe  got the idea from the PC game developers.

I wanted to talk about games that you can download off Steam or GOG that are older games, and you're own experiences with them, here is my list of recommendable games from the Steam App

1: Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition (genre) First and third person shooter *player can choose witch*
2: Duke Nukem 1 and 2
3: Raptor Call Of The Shadows
4: Strife
5: Quale 1 and Quake 2
6: Doom 64
7: Duke Nukem Manhattan Project 2D/3D Platformer
8: Death Rally
9: Heretic: Shadow Of The Serpent Riders
10: Hexen: Beyond Heretic
12: Hexen deathkings of the dark citadel
13: Hexen II
14: Blake Stone: Aliens Of Gold
15: Blake Stone: Planet Strike
16: Wolfenstein 3D

Bad Experiences

1: Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 Triple Thrill Pack (reason) stock steam version is prone to crashing at random

2: Sim City 4 Deluxe edition (reason) stock steam version is prone to crashing at random

3: Viet Cong (reason) it's not the original game at all it's an entire new game just with an older games same exact name on it
