BS Zelda

I didn't know there was a revamped remake of Zelda 1 and a "sequel" to Link to the Past. They are called the BS games, and were distrubuted on the Super Famicom back in the day. To play these games, one would have to have the accessory that transmits data to a satelite. The games were released in episodes. I think it was 4 weeks, that you had a chance to contiue where you may have left off. There were timed events, and many things would happen that would go unnoticed.

Took 7 minutes to download the data, and you had 50 minutes to complete a portion of the game. I didn't I could play these trinkets, but it's possible with emulation. I didn't know the roms existed until today. Hell, I didn't know the game existed at all! Gotta say though, instead of playing as Link, you'd play as an avatar that you would have created for the "BS" games.

Re: BS Zelda

The interesting thing about the BS Zeldas is that they were distributed via satellite, and not physically released on a cartridge. As a result, the existing ROMs are gathered together from flash carts and saved files.

On a similar note, I’ve been somewhat interested in recreating a Mobile Adapter server, which would require some knowledge of how the updates were stored on the Pokémon Crystal cart. It’s definitely possible, because most interactions (if not all) were done via HTTP and SMTP…

Re: BS Zelda

I've often wondered if we could reccreate one of those, but never brought it up because I wouldn't have the know-how to really help as much, I assume the adapters for a phyiscal game would be hard to come by, and I don't think any emulator supports them.

But I guess if we had (or could make/modify) an emulator with that capability this would be really handy. We could make hacks of Crystal (maybe port the code to Gold too? idk) and have Gen II games with a functional GTS.

That sounds like a lot of fun. If you need any help with that, let me know.

If you're serious about trying it now, make another thread about it.

Re: BS Zelda

Well as I said I don't know enough about the adapter to seriously do anything about it right now, that was all hypothetical and in response to IIMarckus' post. But if he wants to turn it into combination project with his idea to create a mobile adapter server, it might be cool.

Seriously though, make another thread about it, because I want to keep asking questions about it but I'm starting to almost maybe get some respect for tysonrss and therefore don't want to keep posting off topic in his thread.

Just make a thread and post anything you possibly know, especially if you can find some videos of it working on YouTube.

And that's @ either Mateo or IIMarckus, whoever posts it first.

Re: BS Zelda

I figure tysonrss and I lost some respect on the IRC today xD ...
Anyway, I had no idea that this existed either. I might just give it a try.
