VSMC was the bomb, everyone in the scene now was still in diapers, and ZD was on ziplink in Philly.

Well, all I can remember is that Zsnes didn't have a win port or any port for that matter other than the DOS one. Other than that, I can't remember. o_O

ZSNES was still for DOS (first version I used was 0.9891c), DGen was a great Genesis emulator and MAME was still releasing 'beta' versions.

ZSNES hadn't come out yet, and the translation of Final Fantasy five wsa still taking a long time. The scene was like, a fuckton smaller and abstractly named websites dminated (Like Zophar's Domain! Coolest name ever! Classicgaming had just gotten started as the first commercially oriented ROM site (#@!) run by Fragmaster, or Kevin Bowen, who people didn't seem to like very much for some reason.

...and Archaic Ruins was bitching about having to post updates so often since there was a new "beta" release every other day...

Ah, the good old days...

To be honest, I don't really remember at what point I actually came across ZD. But my first emulator experience was someone introducing me to VSMC and SNES Professional '96 (or something like that).

I downloaded VSMC last month to try it out, and I was very upset when it did NOT work at all. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

I was looking for Genesis roms, IIRC, and browsing around various emu sites. ZSNES wasn't out, Snes9x was just breaking onto the scene, and I was doing most of my emulation in Genecyst and Nesticle.

I remember the first few releases of ZSNES clearly, because it was the first emu that I could find that actually let me legibly enter a name in Secret of Mana.

Can't remember the exact moment, but there was some controversy or something about Ultra 64, or whichever emu it was, not using D3D and sticking with Glide.

ZSNES and Snes9x had a lot of competition with another. NESticle was at v0.42 and Genecyst was king. N64 emulation had barely been touched (way before UltraHLE). And MAME was cooler.

Lessee... iNES was the emulator of choice, Marat was still generally referred to as a dickhead, GameBoy emulation was pretty solid and #emu on EFnet was the place to hang out.

Also, ZD was pretty much a brand new site. :)

Nlksnes was the only snes emu with decent speed and had just started with transparency, snes97 was out I think but it could have been snes96.

all i remember was that there was snes9X and i think it was v1.34 (all i remember is that transparency didn't work right and i ended up loosing my way in ff5's sunken ship area 'cause I couldn't see.) Nesticle had reached x.xx. thats about all i remember, because i didn't emulate anything more than snes and nes at the time. (after i found ZD i switched to zsnes, which didn't have a windows port, i believe this was 0.9891a that i used but i am sure of the fact that i used 0.9891c )

Erm, I came around several months before Swampgas replaced Zophar. I was into NESticle and Loopynes and a DOS version of ZSNES.

I think about the time I came to ZD this board had a Next-Gen Emulation section and Bloodlust Software. And acmlm had the most posts, and I think he was admin of the board as well. I think the board had a red or green color scheme in some places.

Ah, that's right...I came in around that time as well I think, but probably closer to the time Zophar left than you did. That's a good way to mark the time, I hadn't really thought about that.

I have you beat:

VSMC had no sound, Pasofami was the only NES emulator to play commercial games, and ZD was on geocities. :) :)
