    Mugen Senshi Valis   Nintendo   2017-08-29 17:18:44 by FrodeSolheim

    If I'm to guess a bit, since I don't know Japanese, "Mugen Senshi Valis" is the name on the cover, and "Fantastic Soldier Valis" looks like the NES title screen name.

    No-Intro probably changed policy from naming files after title screen to cover at some point, since it was called Fantastic Soldier Valis in No-Intro earlier.

    Being a Japanese game, I don't really have that strong opinion of whether to use the cover or title screen name, so I just went with the No-Intro name...

    Mugen Senshi Valis   Nintendo   2017-08-29 14:38:57 by thevoice

    According to mobygames no-intro used the msx spelling. the nes version is named : Fantastic Soldier Valis

    Arkanoid II   Nintendo   2017-08-28 19:19:43 by FrodeSolheim

    Yes, languages should reflect the actual in-game languages, so users can (in the future) search for games in languages they can understand.

    Region should be handled differently. And for No-Intro based platforms, it's really already kind of handled by the variant name (Europe, USA, Japan, etc).

    Making region a more properly supported concept in the system is something to consider, yes.

    Arkanoid   Nintendo   2017-08-28 19:13:23 by thevoice

    all you need to do is press ctrl + shift + 2 until arkanoid paddle is selected on port 2 once the game is started and you can use the mouse for controls.

    Arkanoid II   Nintendo   2017-08-28 19:00:05 by thevoice

    There is quite some nes titles which are japanese releases with english texts. i always prefered to set ja instead en to have the japanese flag shown instead the english one. But probably the best solution should be some region flag to prevent confusion.

    like region : japan

    language(s) : en,ja whatever

    FAQ: The Game requires 2 Controllers as the blue/red pillars which act as elevators/doors have to be controlled with the A and B button of the 2nd pad.

    Gumshoe   Nintendo   2017-08-06 04:56:16 by thevoice

    Family Pinball   Nintendo   2017-07-29 04:44:09 by thevoice

    Screens are a bit different in size because the diffent pinballs have sometimes borders left & right some times up & down and some times left and bottom wink

    Elite   Nintendo   2017-07-28 16:26:12 by thevoice

    The NES version of the Game has really terrible controls. Do yourself a favor and play one of the Computer versions.

    Defender of the Crown   Nintendo   2017-07-22 04:22:24 by thevoice

    every event uses its own resolution. decorated with block borders. so the screens differ in size a lot wink.

    Crazy Climber   Nintendo   2017-07-16 05:58:24 by thevoice

    Requires a special controller to be played. with the pad you can only move in one direction. this makes the game impossible to play.

    Commando   Nintendo   2017-07-15 14:08:40 by thevoice

    Thanks to the massive flickering sprites on screen the shots dont't show any shooting beside grenades. acutally you can also shoot. wink

    its a bit funny with the screenshots. each event have its own screensize. so i cropped only the top border away from surfing event.

    Battletoads & Double Dragon   Nintendo   2017-07-09 06:36:06 by thevoice

    for some reason the screen on stage 3 is just 208 in height while all other stages are 216.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game   Nintendo   2013-11-10 14:00:52 by FrodeSolheim

    FAQ: The Japanese version is simply "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", but is merged with this game entry for now (it was initially placed with the international Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles version).

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles   Nintendo   2013-11-10 13:59:26 by FrodeSolheim

    @thundercato I doublechecked and you are quite right. In may ways it would be correct to create a separate Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles entry for the Japanese version I guess, but right now I simply move it to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II I think. It is after all the same game.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles   Nintendo   2013-11-10 13:41:15 by thundercato

    The Japanese Variant of this game would appear to just be the sequel? Any ideas?
