twin galaxies and Dungeon master serries?

Post by ParuNexus » 6-Jul-18 05:08

So I was getting excited to do a speed run of Dungeon Master Nexus(sega saturn) since it had the odd thing of including the time displayed in the file name. Not sure how to display the time or if it even shows it at the end. So I could simply post this idea in the nexus forum but I did some checking: Twin galaxies which is the official record keeper for video games ONLY lists Dungeon Master on SNES. heck no one has even submitted entries yet!
I dont have a snes or the real cartridge, so I cant submit anything. Don't even have an account yet but sometime in the future dont even care if i have to buy vhs tapes record it, mail it. I think there needs to be ATLEAST 1 record! remember these need to be on the machine itself, no cheating, emulated etc. anyone have the physical snes want to make an account and learn what you need to submit? any other console ports with the time stamp on them that could be added? Does anyone even care or thought much about speed runs for any of the DM games? has anyone even heard of twin galaxies?

Nope, sorry, never heard of it. But I've never owned a SNES and never played Dungeon Master Nexus (not even sure what it is...presumably some other version of DM?), so that might have something to do with it ;).

I do like the commitment: sure you have to get the original SNES and game, but posting the speed-run on VHS - now there's commitment! I'd have no idea how to do this, but wish you all the best dude!

nexus is the 3d port it feels very familiar in tone of DM games in some ways but also very different. there are some completely different monsters some new interesting puzzles, room of the matrix is a little different. I only mention vhs to record because a long time ago that is how twin galaxies use to do it. I'm sure they now accept digital recording but i don't know for sure. For the most part recording to vhs is alot easier instead of using connecting from the console direct to whatever TV you send it to a vcr then a TV. now modern TV's have more HDMI ports probably what people use to watch cable or use ps3, xbox 360, wii u. there is a hardware that converts some of those old stuff into a newer one, which then can be hooked up to modern computers for recording. However some of these's have drawbacks doesn't look as good or the signal is slower. this seems like a good enough guide you should also be able to cables for various other devices as well including Amiga etc, It's just VERY expansive now.
