Games you must play before you die

category: residue [glöplog]
So, my friend christy and I had a bet to settle. Rumor has it that if you beat super metroid withing 2 hours she is in a bikini for a moment at the end. We had to verify this, so we wrote this to change the time of your saved games:

Code: #include <stdio.h> #include <sys/stat.h> FILE *fp; unsigned char *rom; int summer(uint8_t *buf, int len) { unsigned int ret, i; unsigned short word; ret = 0; for(i=0;i<len;i+=2) { word = buf[i] | (buf[i+1] << 8); ret+= word; } return 0xffff - (ret &0xffff); } int main(int argc, char **argv) { struct stat qstat; int sum; unsigned int min = 0, hour = 0; if(argc < 3) { printf("usage metriod_fix <hh:mm> <sram dump>\n"); exit(0); } if(sscanf(argv[1], "%02d:%02d", &hour, &min)!=2) { printf("invalid time parameter, try hh:mm\n"); exit(0); } if(min >= 60) { printf("invalid time parameter\n"); exit(0); } if((fp = fopen(argv[2], "rb"))<=0) { perror(argv[2]); exit(0); } fstat(fileno(fp), &qstat); if(qstat.st_size < 0xfff) { printf("size not right for sram dump :(\n"); exit(0); } rom = (unsigned char *)malloc( qstat.st_size); fread(rom, 1, qstat.st_size, fp); rom[0x4c] = min; rom[0x4e] = hour&0xff; sum = summer( &rom[0x10], 0x65c); fclose(fp); rom[0x1ff8] = sum&0xff; rom[0x1ff9] = (sum>>8) &0xff; rom[0x1ff0] = (0xffff^sum)&0xff; rom[0x1ff1] = ((0xffff^sum)>>8) &0xff; if((fp = fopen(argv[2], "w"))<=0) { perror(argv[2]); exit(0); } fwrite(rom, 1, qstat.st_size, fp); fclose(fp); printf("set to %d:%02d\n", hour, min); }

and then played it to the end...

Giants was the funniest game I've ever played. Maybe.

Megarace 2 was a damn good game (and HARD!) - probably the first racing game I dropped my jaws at when I saw the gfx back then :D

For the love of $deity, why did you pick the WORST one of the Primes?

Yes, MP2 is hard (took me about 40 attempts to beat the »Alpha Blog«), but the overall style and atmosphere is great. Bytheway, MP1 is very hard too ... Meta Ridley just don't wanna die! ;o)
