Interesting that you prefer streams over CD soundtracks. Why do they ruin the CD soundtracks? Examples:

Final Fantasy X (Thunder Plains, Jecht's Theme)
Final Fantasy XII (Stupid mixing and reverb hell. Give it to me dry.)
Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories (CDs not terrible, but I recently noticed mastering differences that make the CD perceived as louder/edgier than the ADPCM)
Ys: The Ark of Napishtim (CDs not terrible, but I recently noticed mastering differences that make the CD perceived as louder/edgier than the ADPCM)
Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon (Loud/edgy mastering. The game already had CD-quality sequences, but they are practically ruined by bass that appeals to the lowest common denominator, TV-only audio system owners by compensating. Spyro the Dragon is another example of bass compensation.)

I've been trying to beef up my highscore on mario kart 8 all week lol I'm almost there at 1 million VR points and I don't know why I didn't used to take the game seriously but now that I'm so close I just figured I'd try to make it there but damn so many people have already made it past that million mark! I've seen people have as high as 7 or 8 million, most of them japanese of course so you know they've been playing forever.

I hope one day nintendo actually cares enough to add more DLC tracks because that would be so dope, I'm tired of everyone picking that cheeseland remake course. :P

Just finished Stephen's Sausage Roll last night, well worth the $30.

Playing Gamecube Twilight Princess digitally and wirelessly with Wii U Pro Controller on Wii U using Nintendont.

Using an Action Replay code to disable the bloom lighting. Makes the game much more enjoyable.

Mario Kart 8 needs bloom lighting turned off the most. It looks washed out most of the time (and drops to 59 FPS).

This is the era of enhancing your games to make them play how they should have played in the first place.

Playing a self modified Kirby's Return to Dreamland, with modified Music from all across the Kirby Series, and some songs from a few games outside the series too!

Found a relic from the first web site I made, it was a choose-your-own-adventure maze type of thing. I'd thought everything was lost, but here's the title image of a pyramid:


and a door:


That's all that remains until I can recover a Zip disk that has most of my older stuff.

I don't think this could have been later than 1996, though the date in the backup is 1997.

It's possible that this is from a later attempt to remake the site, too, I know I made that pyramid in Paint more than once.

I just made some .at3 out of these .dls soundfonts I extracted out of a N64 ROM(and converted to .wav using Awave Studio since each of their .dls files had only one sample) thanks to a tool.
Here they are.

Well its summer time yet again and I didn't save up much money to go on vacation so I'll probably be spending most of my summer break time catching up on some old games I haven't played in ages and working on miscellaneous music projects.

Last night I achieved the desired highscore VR points online on Mario Kart 7 as well and finally put the game back in the case and will never look at it again in relief, felt like I had really accomplished something in general lol even though it really doesn't seem like it.

I can't wait until the 4th of july, family should be coming over and they'll have a cookout for us so maybe we'll do something fun. Hope everyone else has a good summer here too and stay safe fellow hcs64 users.

My Panasonic TC-P50GT50 TV vertically overscans a 480p signal via HDMI. No way to disable.

The Wii U's upscaling is over-sharpened and the colors are extremely vivid. Awful. Color banding, too. But it's the only way I can see all 480 lines, because my TV doesn't overscan a 1080p signal.

The Wii U's upscaling also results in a shrunken image (black borders around the entire thing, even when using all 720x480 pixels). Probably a stupid decision made by Nintendo to defend (defensive programming === evil) against overscanning for people with crappy TVs who don't know any better. Wonderful.

Video Games Live Level 5 is out today! Get it here if you missed the Kickstarter, discounts and bundles aplenty available.

I haven't listened to it yet, but I'm looking forward to the Okami track. There's also Chrono Cross, Zelda, Ico, Metroid... fun times.
