TG-16/TE/TurboDuo Discussion / Re: Game of the Month: August 2020 - Parasol Stars

Another great pic!

I haven't been able to play this months pick recently, since I also picked up a lot of PCE games from YAJ this week and been trying those out but I've have played a lot of Parasol in my time. Back in the 90's, I thought this game would have been too cute and "kiddie" so I didn't pick it up until the late(I think I got it on a trade through the old TG-16 list-serv). My earlier thoughts must have been influenced by Segas' edgy marketing, but I have grow'd up and now embrace the cute games. This game has to be close a, if not, top 5 game for me. Scoring all the bonuses is addictive. Play mechanics work great. No problem with the tunes. Has a good challenge and ramps up nice a slow so you feel like your accomplishing something.

Looking forward to getting a few games in before months end!
PC-FX Discussion / PC-FX Power Supply Output Voltages?
« Last post by YomanWasup on August 11, 2020, 09:32:05 AM »
I've gotten my hands on a non-working PC-FX which I've found has a fried component on the power supply. I've decided to replace the power supply entirely. In order to do this I need to know what voltages the PC-FX expects internally.

Does anybody know what voltage the PC-FX power supply outputs to both boards internally? I'm assuming output voltages of 5v and 12v but I need to be sure which pins are outputting what.

Have y'all been reading these?  If someone has already posted a link, my apologies for missing (likely forgetting) about it.

There's some good historical stuff here, especially in the Ys one where they say the CD was in fact planned from the get go and how happy and impressed Falcon was with their port.
Such a great game.  Super fun, cute, colorful, lots of variety in scenery and enemies, and having the two-player option is just icing on the cake.

I can't beat it without continues, sadly.  So far this month, the furthest I've gotten to is 3-6.

Edit:  I did better tonight and got to 5-3.
Just in case anyone is wondering, I emailed OP and he still hasn't gotten back to me. I guess that translation is lost now
But if anyone here has it, please upload it and don't let that work go to waste
Thank you

Looks very nice! Will the Hu Card version have passwords to save progress?

Unfortunately no, only temporary saves (unless you have a CD unit or TurboBooster Plus!). It's about 150ish bytes to save your progress. I did consider it, but I didn't think it'd be feasible for me to write an algorithm to compress the data into password form.

Cool find!  It'd definitely be interesting to know if it's swappable in a beefcase or if it's functionally different inside. 

Just what the fork is it anyway?  It appears to be a stand alone MIDI player, but that seems like a super niche market.  If you were really into MIDI stuff, why wouldn't you have a PC?

PS - Hyper Audio System!

Dude, thank you! I have spent hours and hours searching for the translation with no luck. I sent him an email, hopefully he gets back to me
TG-16/TE/TurboDuo Discussion / Game of the Month: August 2020 - Parasol Stars

Sorry for being late this month. I had another game in mind but since I'm fairly late I am going to do a quick pickup and play game that I love dearly. I have played this game so much on so many platforms. It's also a game I have been wanting to do some high score runs on. So I will be making a score table and then probably copy (any) posts here into the high score thread later. So, all you 5 lurkers that are here come out and post a score. It's a fantastic game! Have fun!
