Welcome to /br/!

This is a catch-all board for the discussion of pre-2000s content, besides anime and manga (that's what >>>/ar/ is for). If specific topics here get enough traction they may be spun off into separate boards. Global rules still apply, so don't trash the place. >Of all the boards, in all the websites, in all the net, she walks into mine…

Favourite retro computer? Mine is the Fujitsu FM Towns, mostly for its pioneering use of CDs and its Japanese computer games being superior to their PC-98 counterparts, although it died off a lot sooner. Just another blip in the Japanese computer scene.

Retro vidya

Anyone wanna talk about any retro vidya they're currently playing? Currently going through Tales of Destiny on the PS1. I finished Tales of Phantasia (PS1 fan translation) back in March and really enjoyed it (except for the awful encounter rate) and thought I'd start on the next game in the series. Tales of Destiny has been an interesting experience because the encounter rate feels worse and the gameplay also feels like a step down (it's an earlier engine than Phantasia) which makes it a horrible chore to play sometimes but the characters and story are really good. I like the idea of "Swordians" in the world and find the characters to be quite endearing with some interesting backstories behind them. Learning of the histories and twists of Rutee, Mary and Leon really surprised me. It's a real shame this version didn't translate any of the skits that the characters had in Phantasia (since this is an official translation as opposed to the fan, so they probably had time constraints) since it would be nice to learn more about these characters. Skits also remind you where you're going a lot of the time, so you don't have to mindlessly walk around new locations until you figure out where to go. The gameplay is honestly boring even when I try. I run from normal fights a majority of the time and cheese boss battles by using magic and interrupting the enemy magic spells. The encounter rate is dreadful and ruinS the game for me a lot of the time. Even with spells that cut it I feel I get into one encounter every 10-15 steps. The visible enemies you can see in some locations that run into you to start battles are even worse, one location in the game was just narrow pathways with enemies running about on them so you're forced into around 40 battles in that one tower alone. I also find the puzzles in this game to be really frustrating sometimes, one puzzle even has the wrong clues to it and I had to check a guide to find this out. Really close to finishing the game from what I gather, I also discovered that the PS2 remake was pretty much fully translated and I could've played that version instead. A shame, but I guess I can always play it sometime down the line when I wanna give this game another playthrough.

Help how do i precisely draw reflections and refractions of an under/above water wave or surface imagery like picrel The colors and shapes of the reflections and refractions confuse me most especially with realism as concern Especially the cylindrical wave shape, reflection of objects other than the ocean floors.... seems like wild guessing so i wanna know the rightest and position maybe by math or whatever projection solution

Retro Visual Kei

Does wapchan enjoy visual kei? >What is Visual Kei? Visual Kei is a musical movement that originated in Japan in the mid-1980s. Appearing out of Japan's punk and metal scenes, visual kei is an aesthetic, rather than a genre, pulling imagery from gothic rock, punk, shock rock, glam rock, speed metal and hair metal, often wearing elaborate costumes and flamboyant hair. The movement expanded beyond it's hair punk and glam metal roots in the 1990s to cover a vast array of different subgenres and genres, ranging from extremes such as brutal death metal to accessible genres like synthwave.

/hkam/ - Hong Kong Action Movies

A thread/general for discussing the output (both good and bad) of one of the best and most prolific action movie generators ever: 20th century Hong Kong. What's your favorite action film from the golden era of Hong Kong cinema? Mine's gotta be 'Yes Madam!' The action choreography is some of the best of the era, the cast of characters is great, the comedy is actually funny, and for once the plot makes sense! I've never shown it to someone who hasn't enjoyed it. Also Michelle Yeoh is a total babe.
