I just saw that, too. Came here to congratulate them, but I guess they didn't post it here?

Do SMS games look different on an actual SMS?

I've never owned one, so I've only played them through Genesis (Model 1) and emulation.

Re: Anyone Interested in a Combined NES + Gameboy Cart?

I imagine that buying this with the Game Link connector option would be cheaper than buying an EverDrive GB, a Super Game Boy 2 (only the rare SGB 2 has Game Link), and an EverDrive N8. Some of us are already set ;) I don't think I would play GB ROMs on an NES much, but it would be a good excuse to...

I tried replaying the game a couple years ago (hadn't played it since I was a kid), and that game could seriously use a proper re-translati...

Re: How did Final Fantasy VI do a non-fixed-width font?

Is that actually a retranslation? Or did they invent the extra dialogue themselves? http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/18/ http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/snes/patches/18readme.txt You can decide for yourself... Hmm...it doesn't look like it says. "Text has been rewritten" could mean either way, really.

Re: Designing the most boring, most generic NES game imagina

I don't think anyone (commercial or otherwise) ever thought "I'm gonna make a mediocre game" when starting a project, and yet, we have tons of that. What you really need is a good idea for a game, or maybe even an amazing, overambitious idea for a game, and then have some big-wig publisher who know...
