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.
