buy a raspi boy and tell me how it is 😃

2019-02-25 01:57:37 UTC  

Do you have romsets I can download?

2019-02-25 01:58:18 UTC  

you just want like a whole pack?

2019-02-25 01:58:21 UTC  

there are sites with ROMs

2019-02-25 01:58:55 UTC  

if you're gonna emulate SNES make sure whatever you get can do MSU-1 this is fucking awsome shit

2019-02-25 01:59:00 UTC  

Yeah I know but it’s harder to get em now that most have shut down. If I build a raspi boy I want EVERY game on there

2019-02-25 01:59:08 UTC  

What’s MSU-1

2019-02-25 02:00:11 UTC  

here's an example of MSU1 capabilities, imagine playing Zelda with this music

2019-02-25 02:01:13 UTC  

or super mario world with this on an underwater level

2019-02-25 02:02:17 UTC  

there actually is a SNES cart with an SD slot that plays back those MSU1 music tracks also if you want the "real" experience

2019-02-25 02:02:44 UTC

2019-02-25 02:03:17 UTC  

Damn that would be pretty sweet. I do like classic chiptune stuff tho. Maybe I should emulate and try out the MSU1 stuff on a raspi and start growing my physical collection at the same time

2019-02-25 02:03:41 UTC  

it should work on a raspi if you're using snes9x or bsnes those are the 2 emus with support

2019-02-25 02:03:51 UTC  

I confirmed it works on my Wii this morning

2019-02-25 02:04:06 UTC  

So how do you add the MSU1 then. And do you have to find the music yourself or?

2019-02-25 02:04:21 UTC  

they literally are PCM files though so we're talking 44.1.khz 16bit stereo uncompressed so they make games huge

2019-02-25 02:04:29 UTC  

a link to the past is 4 GB

2019-02-25 02:04:58 UTC  

I found a whole site yesterday dedicated to these ROM hacks and they link to PCM zips

2019-02-25 02:06:06 UTC  

Some of the DKC tracks are ok others suck ass so I'm going to mix and match what I use, at least for this game each PCM is interchangable I guess the looping metadata is inside

2019-02-25 02:06:27 UTC  

each file for each piece of music in the game

2019-02-25 02:06:55 UTC  

27 files for DKC

2019-02-25 02:07:21 UTC  

Sounds kind of complicated. Might have to get comfortable w the raspi before diving into this stuff but seems pretty sweet

2019-02-25 02:07:34 UTC  

Do I pull the trigger

2019-02-25 02:07:46 UTC  

I really like this simian segue remix

2019-02-25 02:08:19 UTC  

only thing I don't like is it's been compressed so much it sounds shitty on headphones

2019-02-25 02:08:53 UTC  

most of the new tracks are real solid

2019-02-25 02:08:57 UTC  

Yeah compressed stuff bothers me when it’s like that

2019-02-25 02:09:01 UTC  

holy shit is earthbound worth that much?

2019-02-25 02:09:22 UTC  

A cart is about 200 but I want the box and guide and stuff

2019-02-25 02:09:40 UTC  

Super rare to find everything in good condition on top of that

2019-02-25 02:09:41 UTC  

since it didnt sell well at the time and people are obsessed with it now, Id imagine it be a lot

2019-02-25 02:09:49 UTC  

the hardest part of these MSU1 things is they're ROM hacks and since it's technically illegal to distribute the ROM all you get is a patch file and some PCM files

2019-02-25 02:09:57 UTC  

so you have to patch the ROM and stick everything in it's own folder

2019-02-25 02:10:51 UTC  

Where do you get your roms from now?

2019-02-25 02:11:09 UTC  

I have a huge ton a friend shared with me on a flash drive

2019-02-25 02:11:26 UTC  

probably games I'll never play but I'm pretty sure he gave me every MAME and NES and SNES game ever made

2019-02-25 02:11:29 UTC  

and N64

2019-02-25 02:11:43 UTC  

I could figure out a way to share them with you
