  • Link-Dead SNES port

    Written by . Posted at 10:19 am on April 1st, 2011

    Hard times have come. As you know the PC market is on the verge of death as more and more gamers switch to consoles. In a desperate attempt to gain some share of this market I have been secretly porting Link-Dead. I can finally reveal the Link-Dead: Super Nintendo port.

    Watch the video I recorded. It is running 100% on the original Nintendo machine at 30 FPS. This is the second game in history to make use of the SNES mouse. The video isn’t high quality but that is what you can expect from a TV signal. I first had recorded this via rf on vcr, and then recorded on dvd, and then prerecorded on dvd by converting rca to vga and then back to rca for up/down sampling the signal. Just imagine how much the signal has been damaged due to the rca cable and the constand adc & dac conversion. This is what has been left off from original source. Enjoy.

      April fools!

    8. Hmmm. There must be a problem with the video, some of the colours don’t look like they’re supported by the SNES. Maybe you have a graphic enhancement chip in your cartridge. Just PLEASE don’t add dragonflies like you did to Soldat beta 1.3.3. Cool idea, but I hated them so much… so cumbersome. It was good that they didn’t stay in the game.

    9. Monsteri

      lulz at the sounds 😀

      Speaking of SNES!

      Some years back a good friend of mine showed me an old game called “Black Thorne” from back in 1994 (by Interplay [Fallout] & Blizzard [Diablo]).

      I bring it up as it had a “cover” feature to hide/fade into the background as a means to dodge shots.
      Youtube link: (Skip to 3:00mins to see what I mean)

      What I would propose for this game is something like this…

      Only have various degrees in which you could utilize it based of the maps background. Leaving what I guess would be a percentage chance to get hit based on how much of you was left exposed. & in some instances complete cover And maybe even degrees of stealth based on lighting conditions. Then maybe allow peeking by holding the an aim key in conjunction with whatever key or toggle is used to use cover of that sort. Leaving you more exposed but with clearer aim than blind fire.

      In any case, your character would still be vulnerable to explosives.

      Once hit from a shot you’ll get jerked a little out in the open. Perhaps leave certain percentage numbers aside for various levels of detail, like skims, flesh wound nicks, stuns & critical and/or lethal hits. **

      It should add a lot more to the tactics than just crouching behind boxes.

      ** I was also thinking, to a smaller extent that this may happen while shooting down
      a hallway full of enemies… rather than all shots hitting into only the first target, a
      portion would by pass each one. So theres a relative chance to miss but hit others down range. So they can’t just use their buddies as shields.
      ^Not to be mistaken for a bullet passing through multiple targets.
      You could base this off percentage die(dice) or some other formula.
      One in relation to distance… spread or “chance”.

      It’s something to think about.

      I look forward to trying the alpha once I get a new gfx card… again…

      “One in relation to distance…[the other] spread or “chance”.”

      ^left out those two words.

    16. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
      structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
      But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
      Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
      Maybe you could space it out better?

    17. Appreciating the commitment you put into your website and detailed information you provide.
      It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same
      outdated rehashed information. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m
      adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    18. Just want to say your article is as amazing.
      The clarity in your post is just cool and i could assume
      you are an expert on this subject. Well with your permission
      let me to grab your feed to keep updated with forthcoming post.
      Thanks a million and please continue the gratifying work.

    20. Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but
      I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
      site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers
      and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    21. Hi! Would you mind if I share your blog with my facebook group?
      There’s a lot of people that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. Cheers

    23. The concentric arrangement of evergreen leaves is associated with the
      onset of Advent. So we came up with a theme for our Christmas tree,
      and it’s basically going to fit our personalities and be a nerd with us.
      Christmas is here and the festive spirit has taken over everything around.

    24. whether you host parties frequently, and the usage ‘ whether you would
      use just for heating food or baking or grilling. Brownies are always yummy, but this brownie dessert tops them all with the added
      peanut butter. Allow the pan to sit for about 10 minutes before serving the oven baked s’mores.

    25. You can expect copper bottom cookware to maintain a consistent temperature across the entire cooking area.
      Never use any shortcut methods while cooking,
      handling and cleaning cookware unless you are hundred percent sure of its success.

      Stainless steel cookware with an aluminum or copper core is
      also good options for saut.
