  1. I don't even know how to build from source, but I downloaded the experimental version of Openemu linked to early in this thread, pointed at my MAME Rom set, and it's working nicely. Should I not expect that to be the case with console ROMs? Do I need to find bioses elsewhere? Thanks again!
  2. I'm glad I read this thread, 'cause it clued me in regarding Openemu, and I'm enjoying it. Thing is, I need rom sets for things like the Odyssey 2 and whatever else. I know we can't link to sources here in these forums, but if anybody could give me hints as to where I should be looking, I'd be most appreciative. I've been kind of out of the loop in recent years.
  3. Sometimes when I'm collecting data, the game prompts me to hit the options button. Does it matter if I do that? Also, are the snapshots and videos I appear to be collecting stored some place where I can look at them later and share them to Facebook or something?
  4. Ah, thank you again. Now that I think about it, this might mean I've never actually reached those stages using Godzilla.
  5. OK, well this is weird: I decided to play again as just simply Godzilla, but this time, even though I'm betting to over 100 meters, several of the final stages are locked. Not just one final boss stage, but several. What could I be doing wrong? Does it have something to do with me failing to do all that data collection nonsense properly? That part of the game still doesn't make much sense to me, and I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. Speaking of which, what are these red and purple flashes I keep seeing on the map? I walk over to them, they're kind of like beacons, for lack of a better word, but nothing happens when I'm on top of them. By "map," I mean the little radar thingy, as opposed to what's on the main screen. I was thinking maybe those beacons are where I'm supposed to activate the camera? But that doesn't seem to be it.
  6. Yes, thank you; Destroyah proved somewhat easy to defeat. I'm playing as him now, but I gotta say he's not the most fun kaiju to wield. His aim doesn't seem so good!
  7. Alright, that bit about fury chains totally got me over that hump! I was able to grow Burning Godzilla to over 105 feet, and have now, at long last, met Destroyah on the battlefield! Thank you again for all your help with this! And to answer my own question, fighting the easy enemies did not in any way impede me on my journey toward the 100+ meter club. At one point, however, the easy enemies were in the submarine level, which, of course, has no buildings to destroy. So at that point, I chose the hard enemies, which were on land, and therefore had some buildings I could destroy in order to gain height.
  8. 'Nother question: If my goal is to get to 100 meters and fight Destroyah, does it matter if I get there by choosing the hard enemies vs. the easy ones? I figure easy might enable me to spend more time getting fury chains and smashing buildings, but I also figure hard might confer rewards you don't get with the easy ones.
  9. Thanks again. I really misunderstood fury chains. Regarding the planes, can I still get to 100 meters without destroying them all?
  10. OK, boy, I've tried to get Burning Godzilla to 100 meters, and so far I have not been successful. I think just over 93 meters has been the best I could do. Do you basically have to destroy all the jet planes that attack you in order to reach that height? That's the only thing I can think of, 'cause I've been pretty much getting to 100% buildings destroyed on all levels, and also destroying all the ships, helicopters, buses, Maser tanks, regular tanks, patrol cars, etc. The only targets that elude me are the fighter planes, because they only attack you a few times, and then they seem to abort their mission. And they're damned hard to hit!
  11. No, didn't realize getting to 100 meters was key. Thanks again!
  12. I was just in area 16, playing as Burning Godzilla, but no JJ, even though the game told me to expect him. I guess my mistake was reaching more than 50% destruction before killing the generators? Ooh, 'nother question: I've previously played all the way through as Burning Godzilla, but did not encounter Destroyah at the end. Is there something special I must do to unlock him as a final boss?
  13. Thanks again for the info! So, are you saying Jet Jaguar might appear on any level where I destroy the generators very quickly after reaching 50% destruction? And how long did you have to play the game before realizing summoning him in areas 1, 7, and 16 would lead to a nice cut scene? It seems like such a random thing.
  14. OK, I got Jet Jaguar to come out a few times so I could harvest the poor fellow's parts! Now I notice I need Destroyah cells to continue with some upgrades. I hate to ask, but what do I have to do to meet Destroyah? Also, is Megalon in this game? Oh, I hope so! Megalon is one of my all-time favorites.
  15. Thanks, I will try that. And it's only on the first level? Interesting....
  16. OK, I just got to 59% destruction, destroyed the generator, but no Jet Jaguar. Was I supposed to destroy 60% and then not destroy the generator, and wait for Jet Jaguar to show up?
  17. Thanks, so, you're saying I should make sure I've destroyed no more than 60% of the buildings, and at that point, I should go ahead and destroy the generator? And instead of the level ending, Jet Jaguar will come out to play?
  18. So I've noticed a lot of the upgrades I need require Jet Jaguar parts, but so far, I have not encountered him. Does anybody have any idea what I need to do, or who I need to beat, in order to have Jet Jaguar come along so I can get some parts from him? Thanks!
  19. Thanks! So, do those trophies help me in any way?
  20. I haven't found a Kaiju Master mode in this game. 'Nother question: What's the deal with the woman constantly saying Godzilla has entered the data collection area? I've figured out I should press my right joystick directly into the gamepad to activate data collection, but how does that help me in the game? Also, do I derive any benefit from destroying the maximum amount of buildings before I destroy the power plants? And what about the dioramas? Does building dioramas and filling them up with figures actually help me unlock monsters or power upgrades? Because if not, I don't see the benefit of spending energy and evolution cells (or whatever they're called) on those items. Thanks for all your answers, by the way.
  21. Yeah, that much I get, but it's annoying that your evolutions don't take effect unless you "Go Ashore" and star the process all over again from the beginning. And how do I unlock other versions of Godzilla, such as the 2014 Legendary Pictures version? That, I can't figure out.
  22. Given that the whole reason OnLive shut down is that Sony bought them, and given that OnLive allowed you to play games with really high system requirements on computers that did not meet those requirements, I predict the system requirements for this will be pretty low. I further predict they'll roll something out for tablets as well.
  23. Is anybody playing this game? I'm a little confused about how to progress and unlock/upgrade new powers and monsters and stuff. Also, the dialogue and voice acting in this thing is horrible. Like, so bad, you wonder if it's an intentional homage to the poor dubbing in the original movies, or perhaps to the poor dialogue and graphics from so many 16-bit era games.
  24. Hey everybody, I am super excited about this new video arcade that I got to write about for the San Francisco Examiner. In working on this article, I got to interview the legendary Video Bob, owner of the equally legendary Starbase Arcade which operated in Marin County for over three decades. I asked Bob if he was familiar with Atari Age, but he didn't seem to have heard of this site. Anyway, this bar has a great setup, with over 20 of Bob's machines being there and in very good condition. This includes one official Williams (or is it Bally?) Multicade cabinet, plus another, um, slightly less official cabinet that is not a MAME cabinet, but that does have over 50 games in it. The only downside is that because this is a bar, you have to be over 21 to visit. Anyway, I hope you like my article. Here it is: BREWCADE
  25. Or are we talking about a change log file for the ROM set itself? If so, are people here allowed to post its download location, or is that against the rules? Last time, I recall getting the full 32GB collection from a bit torrent site that was just exclusively devoted to MAME, but I suspect somebody had to PM me the address, 'cause stuff that violates copyright is not posted here publicly. (Please note that I am not asking anybody to violate copyright here!)
