/retro/-Where the 90's and 2000's Live On CaesarDude 09/06/2019 (Fri) 23:05:29 No.1 [Reply]
Alright, this is meant to be a successor to /y2k/ on the old 8chan, however I have expanded it to include both the 1990's and the 2000's and NSFW content is allowed, provided it's actually related to the purpose of this board and doesn't violate any of the site's core rules.

1980's Nostalgia General CaesarDude 01/05/2020 (Sun) 21:20:39 No.274 [Reply] [Last]
Alright, I decided to expand the scope of this board a little more and include a containment thread for 80's nostalgia. I mainly created this board to serve as both a successor to the old /y2k/ board, which was my favorite board on 8chan, and also expand the scope to include 90's nostalgia too, but after checking on this board, I noticed someone mentioning 80's nostalgia and I decided I would do something about it. I personally don't care that much for 80's pop culture aside from the music and some of the old edgy anime, but 80's nostalgia did become a thing in the 2000's and I can see why others like the whole 80's style, so I'll allow it as long as it's mainly kept to this thread.

Modern /retro/ material that actually does it right Fellow Time Traveler 08/06/2020 (Thu) 18:36:27 No.768 [Reply]
Let's have a new thread without a tonne of broken images. Have there been any new forms of /retro/ media (could be movies, games, anime, websites, etc.) that wanted to look old and actually succeeded? There's an artist called BlueTheBone who makes "retro"-styled animations, cheesecake, and porn. Like any modern hack, he overdoses on visual clutter and uses filters that don't actually resemble the time period he's trying to emulate - but despite that, I think his style is consistently decent. If he relied less on computers and filters, then I think he'd be a much better artist, but that goes without saying for most contemporary artists. The really weird things happen when he tries to make modern character designs and media look old, like pic 2. It isn't exactly wrong, but there is something perplexing about viewing characters and series that were developed specifically with modern aesthetics in mind.

>>779 Really, try Bryce. It's braindead easy and you can make something nice looking in a really short time (pic related within my first 2 hours of playing with it). It is pretty limited, but perfect for a start. Also freely available. https://archive.org/details/bryce4 https://archive.org/details/bryce4content
>>768 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6HCnub_OoU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ENMpzR54us I really love the stuff that Konzept has been making for Sam Hyde recently. It's a pleasure to watch and it looks like it was taken straight out of 1999-2004, just rendered in 4K.
>>883 Thanks, I downloaded Bryce 4 a while ago but didn't see that other .iso there.
>>768 I'm not sure if Kebu tries to be /retro/, but I'd say his music is definitely a contender because he plays a lot of his songs on analog synths. Even if the style is more modern, the sound is much closer to older songs because he uses similar or sometimes even the same instruments. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=A-6XqqYWzU8 https://yewtu.be/watch?v=cH2guTTyX8s https://yewtu.be/watch?v=TRCQmNMOqUY This sounds more authentic to the 80s than a lot of synthwave songs. I still like synthwave, but a lot of songs sound more like they're invoking nostalgia rather than replicating the original nostalgic sound.

>>1465 >I had it for a few years with Time Warner, but later they dropped it along with a bunch of other channels my parents watched. I still watched it on occasion at my aunt and uncle's house when I visited because they paid for a bunch of extra channels. My uncle was surprised kids were interested in the classic Hanna Barbera shows he grew up watching, and actually enjoyed re-watching them with us when he had time. I was just as interested in older shows as newer ones as a kid, maybe even more. One of my favorite shows on Cartoon Network was ToonHeads, but they stopped airing that not that long after I first discovered it. I guess I was interested in history even before I thought of it as history Nowadays I'm even more of a grognard than I was then. >Too bad it's used now as a dumping ground for relatively recent CN shows. Even some early 2000s shows they haven't aired in years would fit better considering they're close to 20 years old now. If millenials still watched TV they could even re-use classic bumpers like CN City or Powerhouse for nostalgia. Boomerang is a re-run network anyway. Nostalgia is its main purpose. Channels like MeTV do the same thing too from what I've heard. I haven't been a regular TV viewer in a long time, but it kind of defeats the whole point to me to have newer stuff on a channel dedicated to classic boomer TV shows. I miss the experience of sitting down and watching TV, but there's no going back for me after discovering torrents as a teenager. What sucks is that a lot of the torrents that interest me are completely dead.
>>1466 >I miss the experience of sitting down and watching TV, but there's no going back for me after discovering torrents as a teenager. Pretty much. Even though TV is nice to just sit down and watch something, it's hard to beat being able to look up anything you want and not have to sit through commercials. Even if Boomerang didn't have commercials, you still had to wait for the exact hour or half-hour for a show to air. >MeTV I forgot about it. It has a mix of classic shows and cartoons, but doesn't have the full cartoon catalog Boomerang does. It's also has commercials which I don't have the patience to sit through anymore.
>>1466 >I was just as interested in older shows as newer ones as a kid Same. It probably helped that older cartoons were just trying to be entertaining while modern cartoons more often had to start adding educational or moral lessons. (usually due to outside influence) Not having to wait for new episodes was also a plus. Most of the time I watched episodes of Jetsons, Looney Tunes, etc it was something I hadn't seen before.
>>1467 Yeah, the commercials are a deal breaker for me nowadays. I have zero patience for them anymore. I'd rather just download a bunch of episodes of a show or buy it on physical media than sit through them. Even if it's better on paper, it kind of feels cheap though. I remember how big of a big deal it felt like when a show I liked would come on compared to watching episodes at my own convenience. >>1468 >Not having to wait for new episodes was also a plus. Most of the time I watched episodes of Jetsons, Looney Tunes, etc it was something I hadn't seen before. I remember really liking the Jetsons movie from the '80s as a really little kid, which I think was actually considered a piece of crap. As bad of a reputation as Hanna-Barbera has, I always liked The Flintstones, The Jetsons, and Jonny Quest. Scooby-Doo was kind of repetitive to me, but I still enjoyed that too. That also goes for the '70s stuff with Scrappy Doo and the celebrity guest stars. I even liked the direct-to-video stuff, although I never saw anything after Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase.
>>1472 >As bad of a reputation as Hanna-Barbera has To be fair a lot of their reputation was with their cheap animation and Scooby-Doo knockoffs. (Some of them I didn't mind, but I would have gotten sick of them sooner without watching other shows.) The Flintstones, The Jetsons, and Jonny Quest were all good. Even Jetsons just being "Flintstones in the future" was more creative than most of their Scooby-Doo knockoffs. >I even liked the direct-to-video stuff The direct to video Scooby Doo movies in the 90s/early 2000s were great. It was actually cool watching them deal with actual supernatural stuff instead of a guy in a mask. >it kind of feels cheap though. I remember how big of a big deal it felt like when a show I liked would come on compared to watching episodes at my own convenience You're right. It's not as special to watch a show at anytime compared to when you waited until 7p on a Friday night for that new episode to come out. It doesn't help that younger generations are getting less patient and have shorter attention spans. I think the most special TV moments to me were the series finales of Avatar & Ed Edd n Eddy, especially considering most shows on Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network would end quietly instead. >Avatar had gone through a couple hiatuses >out of nowhere we get this trailer I still re-watch today https://yewtu.be/watch?v=5avd9_8rXH0 >that week in July finally comes >new episodes every night finishing off with the final movie on Friday >Ed Edd n Eddy advertises its final movie >we straight up got a 24 hour marathon of every episode finishing off with the movie premiere >Cartoon Network wanted to give a proper send-off for its longest running series and fucking delivered

Web 1.0 and Web 1.5 Nostalgia General Fellow Time Traveler 09/09/2019 (Mon) 01:52:13 No.24 [Reply] [Last]
So, what are some of your favorite memories of the old internet? Can be websites, memes, events or any other aspect of the days of Web 1.0 and 1.5 For a quick reference, here's what I would define as Web 1.0 and Web 1.5 >Web 1.0: Usenet, Geocities and Angelfire, AOL (1991-2001) >Web 1.5: Early YouTube, ED, 4chan in its "wild west" days, MySpace, YTMND, Newgrounds and the peak years of dA and Fanfiction.net (2001-2008) You also had cross-generation stuff like GameFAQs and IMDB which are still around today, although sadly IMDB's infamous message boards are gone

>>1401 >I bought some Maxells at a convenience store since they had some and they sound terrible. I think I got a bad batch or something. That sounds right up my alley! I actually think the ones I have sitting around are Maxells. They seemed decent for what I'm going for, but that wouldn't be decent by most people's standards. Thanks for all the info, by the way. >Exactly! It's a shame. If more people used Linux the computing world would be a better place. Some sort of Linux distro for utter morons would be a good idea, like one of those crappy chrome books except it at least doesn't form a surveillance dragnet. Ubuntu-based distros seem like they'd be just fine for babby-level users who just want to browse the Internet and not much else. A lot of them probably wouldn't even be able to tell you the difference if you skinned it right. >If I had to describe my ideal modern operating system it'd just be Windows 7 but open sourced, more command line integration, and some minor tweaks. Yeah, Windows 7 has pretty much everything I'd want. I'd just like it kept up to date and better options for ricing. >>1402 For me the audio issues are the biggest dealbreaker. Maybe someday I'll just use my Thinkpad, but I don't like relying on a separate computer for tinkering around and recording things. It's not even just DAW stuff. PulseAudio has caused problems for me while playing games too. Sounds would frequently start to distort after launching a program, and they would never go back to normal unless I shut down and restarted PulseAudio. >Some things don't work of course, at least not right away. For example I tried connecting my computer to the television via HDMI and it didn't work out of the box, so that means I have to look into an assistive tool or worse, mess around with config files. Same thing with bluetooth headphones. Of course I can't be assed to research any of that anytime soon because I have actual work to do, so I just boot into my Windows installation on such occasions. I'm dualbooting but might as well not be. I never use Linux and would maybe even forget I have it installed if I didn't see it come up as a boot option whenever I turn my computer on. >>1403 I think the problem is that Linux is first and foremost is a specialist's OS. It's been patched up and juryrigged so that it can be used by complete novices in addition to grizzled neckbeards, but that leaves a lot of the middle-of-the-road users out in the cold once they want to do more with their system than check their email or screw around on Facebook. That leads to problems for a lot of them when they realize what they're in for after deciding to go under the hood.
>>1401 Maxell is a cheap shitty brand, avoid it like the plague
>>1309 >Flashpoint Infinity I had a look at it and it seems cool. Thanks for sharing. >wiby.me is a good search engine I haven't used that one, but my default search engine right now is MetaGer. It's a German search engine that pulls from the Bing databases but isn't retarded like Bing and doesn't have nearly the same weight for SEO. I find totally random search results from pages that haven't been updated in years even when I'm searching for unrelated topics. It really reminds me of how old search engines behaved, in that searching for a specific text string would get you all sorts of results from all over the internet because that's what the technology did. It's a far cry from the digital butler/nanny that Google and its imitators are now. >>1318 >floppys-lounge.neocities.org Neat.

I just stumbled upon some webms and images you might be interested in: Some might remember a post in Julay's /v/ about the promotional site for the back-then new fangled Nintendo DS around late 2004, with its now-taboo slogan Touching is Good, i visited that site daily for weeks due to its interactive nature new to me (and to be fair everything was new because i had my first PC with internet) and the main appeal for me was the atmosphere itself: A man, supposed to be ourselves, chilling around in a set of idyllic places you could "walk" into via clicking boxes in the form of the DS logo. The site was flash/java and when i went to visit it for this post i saw in terror that i couldn't even access its main window on the Internet Wayback Machine (http://www.nintendods.com/index.jsp), something i could one year ago. Back then the site was limited too, many of the interactive screens, used merely present technical specs or features about the machine in different environments, were locked but one could still see the "starting" point of them. The other major point was the music, featuring a theme song that had thematic variations in a couple of the different places; soothing in my opinion, which made the whole experience ethereal although it may be my utter nostalgia. I posted the extended version tune and some nice anon, prophetically, made a webm for me with the extracted original audio and starting screens of each thematic place so at least i can show that as half proof (God bless that anon). What i wanted to note is the particular style that is, in my opinion, the tail end of the Y2K trends which was the interactive flash sites with "calming" themes, some might also remember those looping flash scenes of an archaically animated fountain/river and the water flowing sounds behind. Old folk back in the day melted graphic cards just by running those non-stop sometimes lol. In this example we can see the vast blue skies with the blue mountains and vibrant green foliage, an overplayed mood that might have reached its peak with the famous Bliss image (that i will discuss later), ever present everywhere but also influenced many more. Overall the images and composites of the promo were in its contemporary trendy japanese style with saturated colors, wide angle views and "that" digital look we here are used to, along with the now-niche colour night photography of citiscapes. And accompanying these flashes were also the "cutout" collages many newbie graphic designers did and which were also a finishing trend previous to Web 2.0. To recap that style, one of the Photoshop filters with vast use was one that "flattened" or oversimplified the color/tone counts of an image, and in this simple form some would cut parts of it and paste them over parts of other images thus creating hybrid sceneries, usually landscapes. Rockstar Games, now known for not such good things for our standards, back then was a major player due to a quick succession of successful games and their website was very visited despite all being promotional stuff because they did have tons of extras in there, other than the flash interactive sites for new games (also fucking dead) like Midnight Club 3, they also had free downloads like games, music, screensavers and in this case wallpapers, in the cutout style of course. Here you can see in these images the style we mentioned: Vast blue skies with/or background mountains along with framing vegetation in vibrant greens. I had the blue sky background here for at least 4 or 5 years (2005-2010) and it wasn't until recently when i was peeking some test shots from a new lens that an image there felt extremely similar for some reason, heart pumping out of chest feelings, and i realized i had recognized an exact tree in the same exact position, then it clicked that the tree line was the same and then that a snowy mountain out back was familiar too. 15 years later i still don't know where it is but at least i have a pic showing the real deal, hot curves included. Sorry for blogposting again but it might be an interesting nitbit for some, the nostalgia here is strong so couldn't really contain myself again.

He's not specifically a trance artist (or a classic artist) but he plays most of his songs on analog synth so they have an older style to them. I've played some of his songs with my parents and they reminded them of New Order.

What were BBSs like outside the West? I'm talking Japan, the USSR, etc. Japan had NEC PC-88s and 98s, what BBS software did they have? I imagine getting kanji to work on them must have been difficult. And the USSR had ZX Spectrum clones. Did these ever manage to get "online" at all?

t. Zoomer, thanks for any info
Japanese software still uses SJIS nowadays like it did in the 90s.
Look it up if you don't know what it is.
Also the current imageboard interface we use in the west derives from Japanese BBSs.
The west was more focused on Usenet and forums rather than BBSs.
>Japanese software still uses SJIS nowadays like it did in the 90s.
>Look it up if you don't know what it is.
I know, I mean about how I imagine the lines of text early Japanese computers could display for kanji were probably not a lot and made things difficult.
>Also the current imageboard interface we use in the west derives from Japanese BBSs.
You mean textboards, I'm talking about traditional BBSs.
>The west was more focused on Usenet and forums rather than BBSs.
Asking about the 80s and early 90s though.
Japanese computers were specifically made to handle kanji and had higher resolutions than contemporary western computers, so there wasn't really any issue with kanji support. The higher resolution and larger color counts led to something known as CG (computer graphics) back then (now just called イラスト / illustrations since CG now usually refers to 3D graphics). It ranged from 8 color CG in the late 80s, to 16 and 256 color CG in the 90s and near the turn of the century 16 million colors were introduced.

Sharing CG on BBSs was really popular during the 90s and a lot of prominent BBSs even had their own custom advertisement CG. 16 color art dominated since the PC-98 was the most popular system in Japan during that era and it lend itself well to the anime art style. They also shared FM and midi music on BBSs, but CG was more popular. Other than that they used BBSs similarly to the west and shared files and talked about various things.

With the advent of the Internet, many CG artists created their own websites for their CG and a forum called NiftyServe gained a lot of popularity and BBSs started to lose their significance. A lot of CG artists had a really hard time to transition from 16 colors to 16 million colors and quit, but some artists like Wakachan and Goto-P are still active to this day.

As for what software they used, I can't give much information as it doesn't interest me much, but they did use their own software specific to Japanese computers. Some of it might be available in the vector.co.jp software library. The source of my information is visiting some BBS archives, a lot of CG artist and FM/midi music creator sites, plus other old Japanese sites and reading the tidbits of information they shared.

PS: Japanese BBSs had their version of newfags that wanted to get spoonfed called CG beggars.
Thank you for the info.

Now, for anyone else who might know, what about ZX Spectrum clones in the USSR?
>>238 Correction - NiftyServe was a popular commercial BBS service, but there was also a web based forum version. Both were closed down in the mid 2000s though.

With a new decade upon us and the 2000's being officially "retro" in the eyes of mainstream pop culture, I'm wondering what 2000's nostalgia will be like in the 2020's? 80's nostalgia got big in the 2000's and is still going strong with all that weird "vaporwave" art that appeared in the early 2010's and stuff like Stranger Things in the late 2010's. More relevant to this board, 1990's nostalgia first became a big thing this decade but it was more prominent on the internet than TV or movies. Now we're seeing 2000's nostalgia start to take root in the very late 2010's. I've noticed a lot of Zoomers posting 2000's nostalgia compilations on YouTube in 2018-2019 and it kind of reminds me of the first big wave of 90's nostalgia that got big online in 2010-2012 or so. Hell, /retro/ itself is simply a newer version of /y2k/ over on the old board, but expanded to also include the 90's. I'm wondering if we'll see more 2000's nostalgia and whether or not the media will start pandering to it. Pic unrelated

The 2000's were arguably the last decade when children actually played with toys...

What toys did you have? What toys did you want? Share memories from visiting the big toy aisles, etc.

P.S. The size of the pictures does not indicate the importance/quality of the toys besides Action Man vs Max Steel..'cause Action man is better or you can argue otherwise.

Probably most anons here wouldn't find it interesting...but Bratz was definitely one of, if not the most iconic 2000's toyline! So anyway, MGA are now releasing Repros of the original dolls, they're almost completely identical with the biggest difference being new screenings for the faces. P.S. Reposting for the third time OP pic. >>1274 My older brother has one small set. >because some stupid kids choked on them It's always American children... >>1280 >There were glow in the dark pieces as well cool. >>1283 >I did have a good amount of '80s toys as a kid due to having older siblings and buying stuff used

>>1312 >I'm jealous, I do have older siblings but we weren't that wealthy back then and also my older siblings were less spoiled than me and my brother. I did got Lego and some Barbie clothes in poor shape, apparently we also had some some Zoids knockoff I think, but it was completely ruined and only one piece left. My older brother has some G1 TF, mostly Micromasters and G.I. Joe. I remember having a big tank toy for putting army men in, a whipless Beast Man from Masters of the Universe (which I didn't know about at the time), and a bunch of medieval-themed Legos with a nice red case. It looked like pic related, although I don't know that I had any of the pieces pictures. It gradually became a mishmash as the newer Lego stuff continued to be mixed in with it. I still don't know what ever happened to that case. On top of that, I also got a bunch of M.U.S.C.L.E. figurines that I wish I could find. I bet there were others I had, but those are the ones that come to mind. It was nice having a brother who was so much older than me. >Playmobil has a new theme called Dino Rise and it's pretty much like a modern Dino Riders, maybe you will like it. I don't see Mattel bring them back any time soon now that they have the Jurassic Park/World license and if they, they most likely be awful like their NuPully Pocket. I'm not interested in toys anymore (well, other than ones that have sentimental value to me), but I did see that Mattel is bringing them back in a different form: https://bleedingcool.com/collectibles/dino-riders-mattel-entertainment-earth-exclusive/ I think I would have enjoyed them as a kid, although not anywhere near as much as the originals if I had been able to find some. I was always hoping to find some at a garage sale. My mom actually picked up a tape of the first episode of the cartoon at one, and that was how I found out about them in the first place. Tyco put ads for their toys in their videos in a way similar to TV commercials just to hammer home the fact that there was a toy line. The whole thing is up on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lor_uUkJkkw The military Super Blocks at 9:20 I always thought looked neat too.
