Default Re: I'm still here, in the background.

Wow, I was wondering why I hadn't seen ElementZero in nearly 10 months despite this topic saying he was still here was right at the top of the pile, then it hit me why! Some idiot has bumped the topic with a completely irrelevant reply he decided to put in an ancient topic for some reason! Another mystery solved!

Oh God no. If you've been getting all your emulators from here, then your collection is probably looking pretty mouldy by now. Go somewhere else.

There have been many proposals for redesigns/revivals, but none have got off the ground for reasons that I decline to comment upon.

Very few legal troubles from what I can recall (emulators are legal, it's the ROMs that are troublesome), and a decent amount of work.

It won't be going down. SwampGas tried that once, and got bombarded with e-mails asking why, offering money in case it was needed, and so on.

Just remember that you'd have faired better had this been a new topic rather than a totally irrelevant reply to a long-dead topic.
