Multilevel '[list]' tags don't work
Post Posted: Tue Jan 05, 2021 8:19 am
When you make nested '[list]' tags in your post, you get a flat list as result.

Example of how it looks in my last post.

Hello, I don't know if it is an error or not, but I have just realized that Ghostbusters has an american cover:

https://www.smspower.org/Scans/Ghostbusters-SMS-US-Front

but it doesn't appear in the US releases list:

https://www.smspower.org/Games-Releases/SMS-US

and it does not have the american flag here:

https://www.smspower.org/Games/SMS-G

Thank you!

Our listings are still incomplete, especially for the EU and US releases as there’s so much more to catalogue.

Title should be "DevSound SMS", not "Dev Sound SMS".

emulator links
Post Posted: Thu May 27, 2021 7:20 am
It seems most of the emulator links on the home page are dead or don't point to the right URL anymore. MEKA, Emulicious, FreezeSMS, and Master Gear are the ones that still work. I'm not sure if pages still exist for some of the rest? BizHawk at least gets you to a link to their GitHub. MESS goes to the wrong place, but should be replaced by MAME nowadays anyway. Cheers!

VGM files with conflicting filenames
Post Posted: Thu May 27, 2021 6:04 pm
Hi,

These zip files from vgm packs have conflict files for different systems:

- Putt and Putter
- Alex Kidd BMX Trial
- WonderBoy (SG)
- Choplifter (SG)
- Rastan FM has same m3u/txt/png as PSG

Would it be possible to edit the zip files on the vgm page so that the individual vgm filenames do not conflict ?

Thanks.

Kega Fusion: www carpeludum com/kega-fusion (I wonder how long this page will exist for such an old emulator?)
MAME: www mamedev org
BizHawk: tasvideos org/BizHawk.html

Maybe it's time to retire/overstrike the remaining older emus? :)

Sorry about the link formatting. Your spam filter hates me! :)

Lately, I've been getting an "Error 521" page whenever I try to access smspower.org from a desktop PC. It doesn't happen on my mobile device.

The page forwards me to the smspower start page after a couple of seconds, but only if I enter just the bare URL. If, for example, I try to access the forums directly by typing "smspower.org/forums", the browser stays on the error page.

I get the 521 if I remove the 'www.' part from the URL
probably the DNS configuration needs some fix :|

Bug in YM2413 manual, not sure where to post it
Post Posted: Thu Dec 02, 2021 12:58 pm
From til page w w w . s m s p o w e r . o r g / maxim/Documents/YM2413ApplicationManual

I believe this is wrong (see attached image - as a new user I am NOT allowed to include BB-images or links :-( ):

The manual at m a n u a l z z . c o m /doc/19765832/ym2413 has a clearer scan.

Thanks, I’ve fixed it. The scans back in 200X were less clear and my proof reading not very good either.

You know you can edit a private message while it's still in the "Outbox" (e.g. the recipient didn't see it yet), but doing so automatically prepends a "Re:" to the subject (which can still be removed by hand, but it might be annoying).

Cyborg Hunter info page
Post Posted: Thu Apr 28, 2022 1:26 pm
The information page for Cyborg Hunter lists the European, North American and Brazilian releases as the same ROM, but I'm 100% sure the version I played as a kid was fully translated to Portuguese. It was built into a jet black SMS released around 2004 along with lots of other games, although I can't find this specific variation of the console documented online. It was an official Tec Toy product, though.

I'm not sure if the original cartridge release was localized though.

That information is based on cartridge dumps. If there’s a localised built in version then we haven’t dumped it yet.

Tintin in Tibet credits
Post Posted: Sun May 15, 2022 6:05 am
There's a small mistake in the Tintin in Tibet credits section: The company that developed the game alongside Bit Managers is not IVP, it's IWP.

You can check out this in the Spirou credits section, which was developed by the same people and where this information can be noticed a little better, with a clearer game font.

Also, I guess it wouldn't be bad to add hyperlinks to both Bit Managers and IWP in the Tintin in Tibet credits section, exactly like it's done in the Spirou credits section.

Users, beware!
Post Posted: Wed Sep 28, 2022 9:26 pm
Users, beware! The scam user - StefankaErurF, sends the spam private messages, with an offer to download a software and start to earn an "easy money". The scammer also added the links. In case you'll get a massage from this scam user, don't hit any links, don't download any thing from the links and don't install any software which he may offer you. It's necessary for your private safety.

As mentioned elsewhere, new users can't post links before they made a few other legitimate posts. You can creatively dodge the filter (e.g. by writing www*something*com) and let someone else fix the links for you in the mean time.

Opa Opa has the code G-1343 (not G-1342).

Also I think Lode Runner and Soukoban should be added in the Cassette Drive tag. They use it to save the custom levels.

Missing punctuation in English Box Text for Wonder Boy In Monster World for SMS

The English text on /BoxText/WonderBoyInMonsterWorld-SMS-EU is missing a period before the "Purchase your armor" sentence starts.

Refreash of Emulator list
Post Posted: Tue Jun 06, 2023 10:00 am
Hi,
I found some dead links in the console emulator list.
One is S8DS which has moved to github: https://github.com/FluBBaOfWard/S8DS

Also it would be nice if someone with editing access went thru all the links to see which ones are still live and which ones has moved to a new place, or to archive.org

I fixed a few links. I’m sure there are many emulators missing from this list; but we don’t have resources to try to keep a well maintained reference source.

Error: Super Battletank GG release Date
Post Posted: Sat Mar 02, 2024 9:06 pm
on the games page the game "Super Battletank" is listed as released in 1994, which doesnt seem to be the case, it might've been planned for a 1994 release date and was finished by then but it wasnt released until 2000-01 when majesco gained the manufacturing rights to make the game gear in North America for a short amount of time as a toys-r-us/amazon exclusive, they also re-released several games (hence why you can see games like the jungle book or aladdin with modern ESRB ratings, sealed for about 20$ on the web)

the reason i say 2000-01 is because its not exactly concrete when this was, some websites including amazon (which is where it was exclusively sold online at the time) list it as coming out in 2000, but some places like magazines of the time state it came out in 2001 as seen in gamepro issue 152.

either way the release date was NOT 1994

Someone kindly e-mailed me with a list of small things that could potentially be fixed. Posting them here for traceability.

"
These are full ROM downloads, which I don't think you want:

- GG Portrait: Pai Chen
- Nazo Puyo 2 v0.99
- Off the Wall
- Phantasy Star Adventure v1.1
- Star Wars (Europe/Alt) v0.2
- Tarzan: Lord of the Jungle

Other remarks:

- Crayon Shin-chan: Taiketsu! Kantam Panic!!: The v1.1 download is not a ZIP file but an IPS file with the wrong extensions.
- Crazy Faces, Home Alone, and Pop Breaker: Both downloads are the same.
- GG Shinobi, The: v1.1 also contains the v1.0.
- NFL '95: There is a patch for Madden NFL on that page, but that's a different game.
- Royal Stone: Hirakareshi Toki no Tobira: A Japanese version 1.0 is mentioned on the page, but not in any download.
- Sonic Drift 2: b2 and v1.0 downloads are the same. v0.2 turns Sonic Drift 2 into Sonic Drift 1 (with the 0.2 hack).
- Soukoban: v1.0 contains only the readme.
- There a many instances where the download lists contains lines with only size but now download.

Hope that helps a bit.

These all seem to refer to GG2SMS patches which are a bit chaotic…

The blank lines issue is the attachment table, it shows this for deleted files. Hard deleting them is one fix, me updating the script is the longer-term fix.

I was searching fellow Andorrans in this forums and found that most of them are Russian bots. Also, some "users" use the "location" text field to advertise things like sex...

As many of these have 0 posts, has anybody considered filtering users by their number of posts?

I occasionally remove thousands of spam accounts. The hard part is not accidentally deleting valid users.

I would like to propose some solutions to the issue:
1) Place a presentations thread and make it mandatory to present oneself so there can be at least one post.
2) With 1) one can crack down 0-post accounts yearly (or monthly or whatever one would want to).
3) Place a hidden (with css) text field both in the account creation and the account control and ban any user that writes to it. If someone writes there, it's because it must be a bot.

What do you think about those measures?

EDIT: I haven't invented those, they are just some measures I have seen being implemented in other forums to protect themselves.

There are many legit lurkers with zero posts.
I don't feel entirely right to delete them.

We have a custom question during registration but I think the code for it got broken or its not probably checked.

Please add Helenjaigh to the list.

You can usually single these spam accounts out as their hobbies almost always are mentioned and are nothing to do with the forum
