    A big Steam summer sale and a week of big new releases has toppled most of the usual contenders at the top of this week's EMEAA regional charts.
    Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled stayed at the top despite multiple new releases this week, including Super Mario Maker 2, F1 2019, and Judgment. However, it's worth noting that Nintendo doesn't share data on digital sales, meaning Super Mario Maker's second-place position is solely based on its physical sales.
    F1 2019 debuted at No.3, and Judgment landed solidly at No.5 despite being a PS4-exclusive.
    The Steam Summer Sale is going on at the moment, which is affecting the digital chart especially and boosting some older titles. Most noticeable is Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition, which bumped up to No.7 following a 90% discount on the storefront. There are also big leaps for South Park: The Fractured But Whole (No.226 to No.11) and Two Point Hospital (No.470 to No.13).
    Looking at the digital charts alone, games like Monster Hunter: World (No.8), Uno (No.9), and Cities: Skylines (No. 10) also had strong weeks - there are a number of others further down benefitting from deep discounts including Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Dark Souls: Remastered, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, all of which went from far lower on the digital charts to the top 20 this week, and all of which did so on the heels of a Steam discount.

    Super Mario Maker 2 retains No.1 for a second consecutive week as Nintendo Switch games impress across the UK Top 40.
    The game's No.1 performance is strong, with just a 47% fall in sales from its first week. The title keeps itself ahead of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, which drops 45% in its third week in the charts (but holds second place).
    F1 2019 maintains No.3 (despite a 57% fall in sales week-on-week), while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe continues its rise up the charts, moving from No.4 to No.5 with a 9% increase in sales week-on-week (that's three racing games in the Top Five).
    No.5 is another Switch fast climber, with Super Smash Bros Ultimate jumping five places after a 21% increase in sales performance. The fourth Switch game in the Top Ten is a return for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which makes No.9... despite sales actually falling 9%.
    Further down the charts, Super Mario Party (+1%), Super Mario Odyssey (+14%), New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (-11%) and Pokémon: Let's Go Pikachu (-1%) all rose up the charts, although some of those titles did drop slightly in sales. Broadly, handheld games tend to be more resilient in the summer months when game sales take tumble, with consumers picking up portable devices to play on their summer breaks.
    Physical sales for Xbox One and PS4 games are quite slow at this time of year, and as a result some simple pricing activity and promotion can make a major difference to some chart placings. Mortal Kombat 11 has jumped 14 places to No.10 following a 32% sales bump, whereas Minecraft has jumped from No.22 to No.13 thanks to just a 6% sales improvement.
    FIFA 19 is also on the brink of a Top Ten return following its drop to No.20 this week, with a 14% rise in sales week-on-week (up to No.11).
    Last week's new games took quite a sharp drop. The Sinking City sunk from No.37 to No.12 after a 60% drop in sales in its second week (which in itself isn't a terrible performance). While Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, buoyed last week by the Switch version, fell from No.9 to No.34 with a 62% drop in sales.

    DOSBox v0.74-3 is released. DOSBox emulates an Intel x86 PC, complete with sound, graphics, mouse, joystick, modem, etc., necessary for running many old MS-DOS games that simply cannot be run on modern PCs and operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux and FreeBSD. However, it is not restricted to running only games. In theory, any MS-DOS or PC-DOS (referred to commonly as "DOS") application should run in DOSBox, but the emphasis has been on getting DOS games to run smoothly, which means that communication, networking and printer support are still in early development.

    DOSBox also comes with its own DOS-like command prompt. It is still quite rudimentary and lacks many of the features found in MS-DOS, but it is sufficient for installing and running most DOS games.

    DOSBox v0.74-3 Changelog:
    - Fixed that a very long line inside a bat file would overflow the parsing
    buffer (CVE-2019-7165 by Alexandre Bartel)
    - Added a basic permission system so that a program running inside DOSBox
    can't access the contents of /proc (e.g. /proc/self/mem) when / or /proc
    were (to be) mounted (CVE-2019-12594 by Alexandre Bartel)
    - Several other fixes for out of bounds access and buffer overflows.
    - Some fixes to the OpenGL rendering.

    2. Nintendo 64 News




    • The EON Super 64, the first-of-its-kind, plug-and-play solution connecting the Nintendo 64 with modern television and monitors, launches July 22, 2019.

      Developed by EON, the creators of the acclaimed GCHD and GCHD Mk-II, the Super 64 fits seamlessly into original hardware and upscales beloved retro classics on modern displays without risky modifications. EON introduces the world’s first Nintendo 64 HDMI adapter that operates without an external power source and yields truly lagless input. The Super 64’s gorgeous upscaled 480p boasts twice the resolution of the original console’s video output. Seriously.

      “Slick Mode” enables retro fans to relive the triumphs of yesteryear with even smoother visuals, rounding out jagged edges for a sharper image that makes classics look better than ever. Through EON’s careful attention to detail, the Super 64 boasts the truest representation of color to create the most faithful N64 experience supplanting efforts of typical cable upgrades.

      The beloved N64 sold over 32.9 million units since its 1996 debut. The Super 64 builds a bridge of nostalgic perfection between the N64's analog output and high-definition displays. Nostalgic gamers and competitive players can enjoy their favorite N64 titles on modern setups via HDMI, foregoing the need for heavy CRT televisions or risky console modifications.

      EON's patent pending design is carefully crafted to prevent stress on older hardware and allows the N64 to slot neatly alongside modern platforms.

      Delivering an upscaled experience that still champions the original look and feel guided EON's development process, evident in the Super 64's form-fitting elegance, brilliant display of colors, and remarkable audio fidelity.

      "The Super 64 was designed to celebrate the console that pioneered 3D gaming. We set out to create something that respects the original hardware while delivering the original look and feel," said Justin Chou, Justin Scerbo, and Allan Chou, founders of EON. "The Super 64 is for everyone seeking to relive those classic experiences, and for a new generation for whom so many memories have yet to be made."

    Final Fantasy III is a game for the Famicom/NES that never saw release outside of Japan in it’s original form. In 2006, Square Enix remade the game for the Nintendo DS, which was the first time players worldwide were able to experience some form of this game.
    This specific translation is actually a ‘do-over’ from a previous attempt in 2016.
    Although previous fan-translations of this game exist, they were made before Square’s DS remake. As such, in 2016 Chaos Rush wanted to make a new translation-hack of the original Final Fantasy III for Famicom/NES that aimed to port the script used in the DS remake (when applicable, because the remake alters certain story elements) while retranslating from scratch any parts that were altered in the remake, with the end goal being an English-language version of the original Final Fantasy III with the canon names for characters, spells, items and such. While this initial project was completed, it had its issues: In order to fit the script, Chaos Rush expanded the ROM to 1mb while using a patch that converted the game to use the MMC5 mapper, thinking that there wouldn’t be any issues that stem from it by doing so. Several users pointed out that the RAM configuration used in Final Fantasy III would not have been compatible with the MMC5 mapper to begin with. In addition to that, there were several bugs and crashes that stemmed from the MMC5 mapper conversion, and certain emulators did not support the hack at all. Several users requested that the project be redone in order to keep the 512kb ROM size of the original game and look into ways to compress the script, so that users can finally have a hardware-compatible version of the original Final Fantasy III in English that uses the canon terminology.
    With that said, in 2019 Chaos Rush produced a new version of the translation that keeps the game’s original ROM size and mapper configuration. In order to fit the script into the game’s limited space for text, the script had to be redone from the 2016 version, thus a new script was produced that words things as minimally as possible while implementing DTE compression into the game in order to fit as much text as possible within the original ROM size. The new script was produced by comparing the Japanese text from the original Famicom version with the English text from the 2016 translation (which about 75% of was a script port of the DS version), and then coming up with a new line that words things as minimally as possible while getting across the main points expressed in the Japanese script while keeping the “spirit” of the DS script. Thus, it is more or less an abridged version of the script from the 2016 version, but the Japanese text was looked at in both cases. The compressed script takes up 99.97% of the space used by the Japanese version of the game for the text.
    Whether you want to call this a translation or an “abridged script port”, either way the end result is an English-language version of Final Fantasy III for the NES that uses the terminology from Square Enix’s remake on the Nintendo DS (and subsequent ports), with a script that provides a similar atmosphere to the remake while also staying true to the original text, all while keeping the same ROM size and mapper configuration as the original game.

    It’s been six months to the day since AGTP released the translation patch for Super Robot Wars EX; today, a patch releases for Super Robot Wars 3 that brings it up to the standard set by EX. This is a dramatic improvement over the patch released at the end of 2002 in nearly every sense, technically, linguistically, and aesthetically. The bad names have been fixed, the translation has been doublechecked, and the game has been completely re-hacked from the ground up using the code written for SRW EX.
    The new release is complete and should be issue-free; enjoy!
