Misc. News: I'm back...
14:20: You might have noticed that I haven't been posting as regularly as I probably should, but that's gonna change right now. Those who are interested in why I've been gone... I've been unlucky job-wise. My last job, McDonalds, ended in a rather nasty way, and as a result, I'm jobless. Which means two things:
In any case, keep sending in those news bits, especially the homebrewn ROM ones, and I hope to start work on the new version of the FAQ. I'd like to say "thank you" to everyone who supported me, online or off, and a big thank you to our many visitors for visiting ZD!

Site News: Voice Your Opinion on Revamping the Emulator Pages

It would be much appreciated if everyone would go read my ideas and offer your own suggestions on how to accomplish what will surely be a monumental task.
Voice Your Opinion on Revamping the Emulator Pages
Site News: News Submission & Questions
12:23: Lately, there have been a LOT of people using the News Submission form for asking questions. This takes away from the time we put into updating news because we have to sort through all the questions looking for actual news. You're also most likely going to have your question ignored because we're trying to update the news at the time and don't have time to answer individual questions. You'd be much better off using the Message Boards to asking questions.
For general emulation questions:
ZMD1: General Emulation
For non-emulation questions:
Talk of the Town
For ROM hacking and translation questions:
The ROM Hack Board
For next generation gaming questions:
Next-Generation Emulation Board
You're much more likely to get your questions answered on the Message Boards than you will by using the news submission form. We wish we could answer everyone's questions personally, but if we did that, there'd be no time left to update the site. So to help us improve ZD, please stop using the news submission form for personal questions and head to the message boards. We'd much appreciate it and it will help us improve ZD for everyone.

Anyway, here's what's (relatively) new:
You can go pick it up from the Arcade Frontends page.
Thanks to The Dragon Keeper for taking time to remind us. :P
Translation News: Translation Section Status
20:41: Just wanted to fill everyone in on the status of the translation section. I've been going through all of the e-mails and checking various places to make sure that we have the translation section completely caught up. Rather than adding them to the current sections, I'm going to wait and add them to the completely redesigned section that will be unveiled soon. The new section looks completely different from the current state of ZD and once we've tweaked all the bugs, we'll unleash it upon the unsuspecting public. Oh, I guess since I just warned you, you won't be so unsuspecting, but oh well. If people like the look of the new translation section, we'll begin morphing the rest of the site in a similar manner. If you don't like it, then I guess we'll just return it to it's current, rather ugly state, albeit more up-to-date. So stay tuned, because in another day or two, the fate of ZD (or at least it's appearance) will be in your hands.

Misc. News: FAQ Request from Anthony DiPasquale
15:08: A few weeks ago, I met up with an old friend of mine who's been into emulation for quite some time. After chatting for a little bit, he wanted to know if I could help him find an old VGB FAQ he wrote some time ago, dated late 1995 or early 1996, by "XxDeThxX". If anyone with information that would lead to the finding of this FAQ could drop him a line at email@example.com, your help would be much appreciated.

Site News: I'm back, and look who I've brought with me!
16:37: Yes fiends, it's true that "Emulation Forever" wasn't just an overused cliche of mine... it really is forever. I've had lots of time over the last few months to think about the direction I wanted to take ZD. I decided that when I came back, I was going to come back with a *BANG* and bring something really exciting and controversial back to the table. Who better to stir up the excitement that ZD needs to show that we're ready to rise back to the top than the master of controversy, InVerse? InVerse will be working very closely with myself and the rest of the staff to take ZD into the new direction that it is we want to go in.
Sure, there's been lots of criticism over the last few months about decisions that were made and things that were done. While some of it has been constructive and some of it has not, all have been screaming for something exciting to happen. During these last few months I've been carefully monitoring the message boards and have realized that even with the slow news days, and even the lack of *any* news at all, you guys stuck through and believed in us. For that, you're all going to be rewarded in the coming months. Things aren't going to magically change in a few weeks, but we guarantee you that things aren't going to get boring around here for some time to come!
My email queue? Around 3,000. Oldest unchecked email? Sometime in mid-March. Apologies? Tons! But I promise to all of you that your emails *will* be read - just give me a little time here. Even us evil gods can't speed-read like those guys you see on Infomercials that sell their magical 'speed-read' books for 5 easy payments of $49.95... but moving right along - translations! Yes, during the era of Mike "Taichou" Gregerson, the translation news suffered. I'd like to apologize to all translation & ROM hack enthusiasts that visit ZD for that very purpose - we promise you that during this new era, translations with available patches will not be overlooked, and no amount of 'personal grudges' or just plain laziness will *not* happen this time around. All we ask for is a little time and you'll be downloading tons of new material in no time!
The links! Are we ever going to update them? You betcha! Hold on to your hats because all of the links are going to be updated. Dead links will be removed, new ones will be added and the descriptions will be cleaned up. If you thought we linked to a lot of quality sites out there now, just wait for the coming weeks for even more! The links sections have always been a very important part of ZD, and emulation in general. Why? Sure, we are a business, and as such we do make a little money - but unlike other businesses, we do *NOT* believe in holding down other sites so we can pocket extra cash. Are you 16 years old, do you run a quality emulation site, and wish that one of the 'bigger guys' would post about it to help get you started? Heck, that was me in 1996 when I started ZD and when *no one* would post mine. Just drop me a line! We promise you that we'll help out all quality just-starting sites out there with a little exposure.
The new ZD - quality, speed, and the most important aspect? FUN! "But what about the anti emulation sites? The anti ZD sites? Nintendo? The IDSA? Ted Turner?" Screw 'em! No matter how much money one makes and no matter how much exposure one gets, never forget the most important goal - fun! This is ZD, this is your ZD. ZD is forever - and...

Site News: Translation Section to be First Overhaul
15:25: Let's face it, the translation section here on ZD is severely outdated, which is why it's the first section to be overhauled. There's a *lot* of work to be done to it, so I'm going to need your help. Anybody who has submitted translation news in the past, I'm asking you to resubmit it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I know how annoying it is to have your hard work ignored, because I've had several of my own news submissions passed over. That's why I'm personally guaranteeing that you will either see your project added to the translation section or you will receive an individual reply if, for some reason, it isn't added. Don't think that I'll only be paying attention to e-mails, though, because I'll also be scouring the net for any updates that have been missed. Speaking of which, I'd like to thank Jandar for graciously allowing me to use his site, Snakeeyes Gaming Corp. as a basis of comparison for finding translation related items that have been missed. So keep a close eye on the translation section, because in the next several days, you'll see major improvements.
Site News: Poll Updated
15:12: Well, Stick here, and I'd like to say that I'm back from the dead -- finally. After all which has gone on lately, I've had to do a lot of soul-searching, but I'd like to say that I'm back, as is ZD.
Anyway, here are the results from the last poll:
What's your favorite form of entertainment?
Choice 1 was: "I like to watch a lot of movies."
It received 34 votes (5.6 percent).
Choice 2 was: "Since you're giving me a choice, I'll say music."
It received 125 votes (20.6 percent).
Choice 3 was: "All these other losers are wrong.. It's all about video games."
It received 283 votes (46.7 percent).
Choice 4 was: "I'm into pro-wrestling.. it's better than everything."
It received 44 votes (7.3 percent).
Choice 5 was: "Forget wrestling, it's all about REAL sports."
It received 27 votes (4.5 percent).
Choice 6 was: "The best kind of entertainment is, of course, books."
It received 64 votes (10.6 percent).
Choice 7 was: "I like the great qualities of television, especially the cheese."
It received 29 votes (4.8 percent).
Games won, obviously, but music was a relatively strong second.
As for the new poll, it's the first in a series of polls about changing ZD for the better. This first poll has to do with the poll itself:
Would you like to see the poll on the main page?
Our idea is to make the poll more convenient for people to vote in, so we were thinking about making the poll show up on the front page.
Like it? Don't like it? Don't care? Well, whatever you decide, it's all up to your vote if we do it or not.
Oh yeah, watch out, because ZD is coming back strong. :)
Site News: Welcome to the New ZD!
14:31: Ok, so I'm jumping the gun just a bit. There's nothing new just yet but that's all about to change. Over time, you'll see ZD evolve before your eyes. The problem with attempts to revamp ZD in the past was that everyone tried to tackle the site as a whole and ZD is just too big for that to be feasible.
So what you're going to be seeing instead is ZD being changed page by page, section by section until the site is complete redone. Then ZD will once again reign supreme among the top emulation sites.
We don't kid ourselves. It won't be an easy task, but we will succeed. Three months from now, you'll see much improvement. In six months, the site will be drastically changed. A year from now, you won't even recognize ZD compared to it's current state.
So for those of you that have remained loyal to ZD during this extended low period, we thank you and your loyalty is about to pay off. For those that had trouble staying with ZD during these troubled times, give us another chance and you'll like what you see. And for those who have criticized ZD from the beginning, there's nothing we could ever do to change your minds, so we'll just focus on satisfying the people who care and the rest of you can say what you will.
With that said, let the improvements begin.
Emulator Release: NESten 0.6 Beta Final

03:30: Most people that have used the Internet for a long time probably remember PKZip, the first file zipping utility. Well, yesterday it was announced that Phillip W. Katz, the creator of PKZip, had died as a result of complications from alcoholism at the age of 37. His program has made an enormous impact on the Internet, and his memory will live on in the millions of zip files scattered across the Internet (well, sort of).

Read it in the Translation and Hacking Docs area.
Utility Release: UltraMSX2 v1.0 released
18:36: UltraMSX2 is a utility for Win9x that converts MSX2 ROMs over to the Doctor V64 format for use on the Nintendo 64. From the ReadMe file:
"With the rominserter you can insert your
favorite game in the emulator. At the moment
the maximum romsize is limited to 128kb. The
rominserter will generate a file called 'Patched.v64'.
Fix the checksum of the file with RTOOLS or IAS or
another tool that can calculate the checksum
and download it to you N64.
I have tested the rominserter with the following roms:
- Hyper sports 1
- F1 Spirit
- Maze of Galious
- Metal Gear
- Vampire Killer
- The Threasure of Usas
- Kingsvalley II
Just as a test, I tried it on the Vampire Killer ROM and loaded it up in Nemu, and, though very distorted, you could tell it worked. I'll have to give it a try on a real N64 later.
You can try it out now in the N64 Utilities area.
Special thanks, as always, to the crew in the know when it comes to MSX, The MEP-Crew at www.file-hunter.com.
Misc. News: Strange Mario Bros. 2 hack released
18:05: Acmlm has released the first patch for his hack of Super Mario Bros. 2. The game is entitled Strange Mario Bros. 2. He is designing the hack from the ground up, using his SMB2 Discombobulator. He has changed 24% of the graphic tiles, edited the palette, and has changed the story line. The game is going to be completely different from the Super Mario Bros. 2 you know and love. Currently, this patch is complete for World 1-1, but, this is a must see and is definitely worth checking out. If you'd like to see screenshots, head over to Acmlm's ROM Hack Domain.
You can download the patch now from the Translations: Hacks area.

Media News: Love the N64?
01:10: A new all-N64 site called N64 Zone has just opened up. It covers N64 emulation, game releases, and will soon cover N64 cheats.
Also, a new site dedicated to scanning N64 cartridges has opened up. They like to call it The Cart Scan Repository. You might say, "What do you mean, scan carts?" That's right, they want scans of the actual cartridges themselves, inside and out.
This will help everybody understand what hardware N64 carts have, what security and what save chips are used. As well as discovering unknown features of cartridges.
If you've ever wondered what's in those N64 carts, have a look. The text accompanying scans telling technical details was quite interesting.

But with this note, I must add. I'm leaving ZD. I know you've all seen ZD drama, and well, I'll try not to add to it. In my eyes, ZD has been dead for 6 months, dispite some small 'bumps' from some workers. With that said, and possibly deleted in 5 minutes: The peak of emulation is over. Go find your life, and live it.
Download the great translation from the SNES Translations page.
For Decent Translation News I never could give:
I would say all my Thank-you's, but I'd be here for a year.

Misc. News: Gamefighter 2000
23:34: We received an e-mail from Anthony J. Comberiate announcing a new java game, Gamefighter 2000. In his e-mail, he states:
I'd like to announce the debut of Gamefighter 2000. Gamefighter 2000 is a Java Applet I've written. The idea is that you can select different classic videogame characters (from games released between 1985 and 1999) and have them fight against each other in turn based combat. Each character can fight, use magic, form an energy shield, draw magic, drain hit points, and use a few other commands as well. Not only can you fight one-on-one between two characters, but you can also fight through four different groups of bosses at varying difficulty levels.
You can download it from Anthony J. Comberiate's webpage

This is a rather large milestone, as many have attempted to use their skills at hacking this game, but only 1 team has gotten this far.

Also available on the Destiny homepage is a scanned and translated strategy guide to help you on your way.
Grab it from the Translations page.
Emulator News: Corn 0.2 bug workaround and language files
16:58: The Corn homepage has posted three workarounds for the EAccess Violation problems people have been having:
Also, I got many new language translations. Great thanks to DesktopMan for the Norwegian trans, to [D]J for the Italian trans, to RaZoR14 for another Dutch trans, to MiGa, Stefan P, Peter H, Kanne, AiRWOLF, MarcDK and Kojote for German trans. Since I don't understand these languages, it's beyond me to choose from or combine them and I believe they are all good translations. So I put all of them into the new updated Corn.lan file.
You can get the language files at The Corn Homepage.
Emulator Release: Raine 0.28g
16:47: Raine has been updated to 0.28g.
This is just a bugfix release really. It's not officially supported so don't go bothering people about it. This was compiled by Kayamon. Antiriad is the official author of Raine, not me. If it doesn't work, try the 0.28f release, which was the last official one.
Here are a list of changes from the last version:
Apparently the new SEAL fixes problems with PCI sound cards. I don't have one of these, so can someone who does either confirm/deny whether it now works?
I read the Bubble Bobble has problems around level 50 (anticupid?). If anyone can get me a save-state from around that point so I can debug it, I'll try and fix it.
Kick & Run needs the file 68_H.BIN from the bootleg "Mexico 86". I can maybe change this to use the MAME romset. It doesn't actually work anyway, though. It would work if I tweaked the Z80 core, but then the music would mess up in lots of other games (sigh). If you're lucky you might be able to get it to work by playing Kiki Kai Kai first (don't ask...)
Also, if there are any other small fixes people want, I'll try and do that.
You can get it at the Multi-Arcade section.
Emulator Release: VEGAS 0.92
09:11: The world's first 32x emulator has been updated to 0.92. Here's what's new:
Get it at the Sega Genesis section.
Emulator News: More On Corn 0.2
00:51: Well, this emulator is promising, but as far as compatibility is concerned, I could only get three of the roms I have to work: Mario 64 with sound (and pretty darn good and fast, I might add), Mario Kart 64 with no sound, and Wave Race Japanese with no sound. Banjo & Kazooie, Clays Demo, Cruisin USA, Gex 3D, Goldeneye, Harvest Moon 64, N64Stars Demo, Smash Brothers, Ridge Racer 64, and Tetris 64 all display nothing or crash. I don't have very many roms though; I'm sure others work. I believe EmuHQ reported on at least six or seven games working.
Even with low compatibility though, I gotta say, Corn really impresses me. I set my Corn almost to the max resolution my monitor could handle (Corn doesn't support my max, 1280x1024), and I still had full speed Mario 64 with in sync sound. I'm only running a K6-2 400 with 64 megs of RAM! Corn works fine in both Win98 and Windows 2000. It's actually better to run it in Win2k if you have it, since it does crash, and the crashes tend to bring Win98 down.
There are a couple of problems with Corn's display. For the life of me, I could not get a game that was running full screen to exit without hitting alt-ctrl-del. Esc-F10 is supposed to work, but doesn't. Sometimes if I alt-tab out of Corn and go back, graphics do not show up, and sometimes they do. Finally, Corn should pause if it does not have focus. As is, your system crawls as you try to do whatever with Mario 64 in the background.
All in all though, Corn is pretty dang good. Try it out.
Emulator Release: Corn 0.2 Public Version Finally Out!
00:02: The new version of Corn has just been released. Corn is a super fast N64 emulator with sound and 3D card support. This version features:

Site News: Back after a tiring 2 weeks
15:43: With the passings of Mickey and Ernie's fathers and one of Mike's grandparents, it was inevitable that I should come down with a flu-like sickness (even though I got a flu shot several months ago). Although my ears still feel like they've been stuffed with cotton, and I missed a great April Fool's oppurtunity, I feel just about ready to rumble once again!
Speaking of Ready to Rumble, the movie wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I went to see it last night (first time I didn't feel nauseated in about a week and a half) and it was pretty funny! Fans of David Arquette and Oliver Platt might want to check it out - by no means a 5 stars movie, but funny nevertheless.
Lots of new sites joining ZD these days - I'll be posting the arrival of at least three of the many sites that have joined since I came down with the 'flu' (I still don't believe it was the flu though - darned flu shots are worthless if it was). I'd like to apologize for the lessening of updates over the last few weeks - and for having a queue of 500 emails in my inbox at this current time. I'll get back to each and every email - just have patience!
Once again, thanks to everyone for supporting ZD! It's time for some updating. :)

Utility Release: TempEd 0.52
13:49: TempEd, a level editor for the arcade classic Tempest was updated to version 0.52 quite a while ago. Actually quite a while ago, but better late then never, right? With this utility you can edit the levels in Tempest, but you need to have to ROMset and an emulator to play it with to actually try out all your levels. This editor has not been tested with a real arcade game, and the author says that you may be able to create levels that would damage a vector screen. Here's what was new in this version:

Emulator Release: Vegas 0.9
05:16: Finally, the first 32x emulator is available to the public - Vegas 0.9! The author states that this emulator runs every single feature of the Genesis core system, but 32X emulation has a few compatibility and performance issues. This means that only a few 32x games are compatible, and that most will run very slowly on even a high end computer. In this release, only keyboard control is supported, and saving backup-ram to the computerís hard drive is missing. The author plans to add these features at a later date, as well as support for 6-button controllers and the Sega Menacer.
