BS Shin Onigashima: Week 1


I'm putting up this set of videos instead of my scheduled (Schedule? Laughable, Kiddo, laughable! Just LOOK at this!) stuff. Don't ask why. I'm just crazy. >_>

This is BS Shin Onigashima. The remake of the likely-forgotten-by-many Famicom Disk System classic, visual-novel style game. There is also a "Nintendo Power" download ROM version for the Super Famicom's familiarly-named service (That is likely not related to the American-published Magazine)

So, off we goooooooooo-

Also, a bit of a heads-up; when I get to Week 4, it will be one giant video, instead of segments. It was the way it was uploaded on NicoNicoDouga.

Catch-up game: Posting BS Fuurai no Shiren Week 3.

(EDIT: URL fix.)

Right, no post with an excuse this time. Just cutting to the cheese. Or chase. However you wanna put it.

Basically a week of trying to advertise my not-being-updated-at-the-moment blog to some likely non-interested parties. Aw, well!

I'll post a BS Fuurai no Shiren video to tide myself over. Hopefully by the end of this week I'll have some more radio shows and whatnot up.

Belated relization of a goof: I missed a Marvelous Week.

(EDIT: URL fix.)

This post is just what it says in the topic.


Ok, actually, this post will have those videos now, too! Kay, kay!

Apologies for any confusion this may have caused.

MASSIVE apologies, folks.

Emulating the Satellaview - some new ROMs need BSNES!

(Picture link fix edit)

Right, as I brought up in my previous post, for some reason BS Konae-chan no DokiDoki Penguin Kazoku only boots on BSNES. Now, since it needs the BIOS, loading it is a bit more complex than just "Pop open ROM" now...

So, time to check out the not-so-enclosed instruction book! Click the ol' "Read More" button.

Anyway, first off, BSNES is here.

BSNES Homepage

Now, before we do anything of note, let me get something put in your mind here right away.

BSNES will not load the BS-X bios if said BIOs has a ROM header. You will need to remove it if your bios has it. The BS-X Bios on our site has such a header, so it will need to be removed before going any further. Various ROM hacking guides should have ROM header removal tutorials, or you can use SNEStool or Ucon64 or whatever is your preference for such.

Now, AFTER this header has been removed, open the BSNES app.

On "file" you will see a "Load Special" option which has a submenu.

"Load BS-X Cartridge" is for loading a download game in conjunction with the BS-X Bios.

Put your bios on the top and the ROM on the bottom. Click "Load" and you'll kick into the BS-X Bios itself. I'll tell more on what to do after this after a bit, but it should be easy from here on out - when you go to the overworld, enter the house behind you, hit the first options, and there! Game loaded.


On the new ROM Dump: BS Konae Chan no DokiDoki Penguin Kazoku

Elude Visibility has put up the ROM for this funky, obscure Nintendo arcade-style game which was only released on the Satellaview.

I've posted a bit of a teaser video of it before to try to hype it. Also here is a bit of a gameplay video (Note: The music is not from the ROM. Sorry, was a bit sloppy on the camerawork.)

The goal of the game is to get a high score by collecting the penguins (And not losing any in the hazards along the way) in this strange mix of Frogger and Lemmings.

As noted, the ROM only boots on BSNES. This has just made me realize that I need to put instructions on how to boot the ROM up. That shall be in the next update.


Absense (;[]n[])

Yeah, I'm REALLY late this time.

Basically, I had a major internet problem for the past week. It isn't resolved yet, but I found some other ways of getting my work done.

A few things have happened while I wasn't updating. I'll put them up in my next few posts before doing anything else.

Belated BS Marvelous: Time Athletics Course videos.

(EDIT: URL fix.)

No jokes about weather delays this time... I can't think of a good one. :(

The last BS Marvelous week will probably come through a bit quicker. I hope, anyway.

NEW ROM DUMP: BS Fuurai no Shiren Week 2.

Aaahhh, this shall be sweeet.

Elude Visibilty has put up this new ROM. Hey, don't I have a video of this? Why, yes, yes I do, but that's next post.

For right now, here's a video of my playing the game
