There's an extra syllable in the middle line that prevents this from being haiku.

Okay I'm out of the loop now, but holy fuck why ag1999 gets banned?

The real question is : why did it take this long to ban him?

Honestly, I thought ag1999 was some kind of joke troll account, in the vein of B1FF [if not remotely as overt].
Like, half of his posts read like what you'd see a "sterotypical teenager" do [like, the sort you'd literally see in movies and TV, as opposed to actual people].

shit, even the username seemed a bit like that to me :lol:

The kid clearly can't function within society. He just can't.
He had to go

I'm still convinced he was some sort of honeypot for catching those shotacon freaks I always read about in the newspaper. Image Who would seriously consider selling their butt for Ducktales in RGB?!

See, that leads credence to my theory.

I'm pretty sure everyone is getting PVMs and NESRGB for Kickmaster. Who wouldn't sell their butt for that.

Just realized the first name 'Sven' is one letter away from 'seven' or just pronounced with clenched teeth.
So what? I will never be able to unsee/unhear.

Just realized that one of the 2 bowling alleys here is totally rad.

Not only did they keep those beautiful CRT monitors for the scores (wonder how a dreamcast would look on those :twisted: ), which warms my heart, but they also rent movies(which is quite the rarity in 2017), and cool ones too, they don't only have new releases. they have like T2, The Fly, some Rambos and Rockys. They also have a claw machine and it's always fun to see your friends dropping what they wanted to pick.

The other alley also has CRT monitors but they don't rent movies

Be sure to keep an eye on those CRT monitors. You don't want them to go into the trash once they finally decide to upgrade.

I often consider lifting the CCTV monitor at my bank's local branch, while stuck waiting in line! Image

I'm wondering whether one would be allowed to ask the owner for them. They're bound to get thrown out eventually.

Anyway, today's contribution: Hoshi no Kirby Super Deluxe uses the SA1 chip, one of the few pieces of Super Famicom hardware that higan emulates poorly and that the SD2SNES does not support. This makes it one of the few high-profile Super Famicom titles for which neither emulators nor flashcarts are viable.

Also, the ST018 chip that led to higan's second most accurate core is only used by one game. I knew byuu was crazy, but...

I guess it would be more accurate to say that the SA1 is a chip not even higan is able to handle gracefully. Last August's v101 release fixed an issue with Super Mario RPG, which suggests progress is being made, but by byuu's own admission, accurate SA1 emulation would require far too much computational power to be feasible. (Given byuu's track record, chances are that a more accurate implementation of the chip is possible with PCSX2-level system requirements, but in any case, it hasn't been done.) It's not like SA1 games are completely broken, though.

byuu, circa June 2016, wrote:
> It's not just the memory conflicts, bsnes' SA1 is full of things that make my inner voice scream "THIS IS BLATANTLY WRONG, HARDWARE CANNOT POSSIBLY WORK THIS WAY":

You and me both.

Now what's really scary, is how much worse everyone else's is. Probably 30% of the entire chip's feature set is completely unemulated in Snes9X. Even more in ZSNES. Why? In Snes9X's case, games don't use those parts (like H/V IRQs); and in ZSNES' case, unpopular games don't use those parts (like the golf and horse racing games.) They both have horrendous lists of ROM patches based on game ROM title that hack out wait loops to try to speed up SA-1 games more.

To add to your list, a huge issue now is that a lot of the I/O registers are only readable from either the SA-1 or CPU. Yet in most cases, both can freely read/write all the registers. This is poison to SA-1 ROM hackers, and is the exact kind of thing that leads to emulator-only hacks.

higan is basically ZSNES-level on the SA-1. And everything else is much worse than even that. The SA-1 is basically half the complexity of an SNES emulator in a single coprocessor, used by ~10 US games (and some boring horse racing/Japanese chess/fishing games in Japan.)

byuu, roughly six months ago, wrote:
Right now, higan splits cycles in half to try and simulate the register latching lengths. I don't have the CPU power available to try and do full 100% bus-accurate emulation; which is especially needed for SA-1 emulation to be truly accurate.

I'll definitely be doing just that.

I'll have to tell the owners to contact me before they throw them out. It's gonna be an awkward discussion, but a guy's gotta do what he's gotta do :lol:

Something about the new MameWorld logo has been bugging me, and I have just realized; it definitely shows similarities with the nazi 'SS' insigna (the one in a circle) :lol:

I vaguely remember reading a quote from Steven King years ago where he said reading his own published books is excruciating for him because he always sees a million little changes that need to be made.

Meanwhile somewhere in an alternate universe, an alternate version of you has made those alternate life choices and has simultaneously realised that "if I had a time machine, there isn't any part of my life I wouldn't change."
