Default THE WHIRLPOOL HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED!...?

No, seriously. Anyone checked The Whirlpool out lately? They seem to get in a jab at ZD too at the end. <img src=smilies/erm.gif><P ID="edit"><FONT class="small">Edited by MegaManJuno on 10/07/05 12:41 AM.</FONT></P>

I have no idea who that guy is or what he does, but he can go fuck himself.

Edit: Yes, very sorry. Pretty damn drunk, just saw someone busting on ZD. I should really stay away from the net whilst drunk.<P ID="edit"><FONT class="small">Edited by Diskeater on 10/07/05 02:54 AM.</FONT></P>

Well, crap. Now where will I get my rom hacking news?

Not too surprising, it's been over a month since the last news update here.

Psh. They think ZD is dead? They're right. But all of emulation is dead. When's the last OMFG emulation moment you've had? That's what I thought. Emulation did what it set out to do, and now it's done, and people have moved on. Nobody's going to fall over themselves over a ZSNES release that corrects a typo in the fifth menu third to the left, second line down. It's done.

Wait until the current lineup of consoles is old school, and people have the computer hardware to emulate them. Then you'll see emulation flare up again, provided we all haven't been chained down by Trusted Computing and all the neato handcuffware that they've got lined up.

Never understood the ZD bashing.

You're wrong. All the DS and some of the PSP stuff is pretty exciting - plus the Dreamcast is like the energizer bunny. But I do think the Reveloution's backward compatability deal will drop interest in it even further.
As for Whirlpool, they were a good Translation site, pretty well staffed...I'm just surprised that either (wraith) or Spinner 8 took a cheap shot like that.

Same with Bongo's site, but he quit the scene because he couldn't find a translator that would stick with him.

There's a discussion on http://transcorp.parodius.comTransCorp</a>'s forums, in which wraith and Spinner 8 talk about why they stopped.

Donut was just a hobby for Wraith, so once Nightcrawler from Transcorp announced he was building a news website dedicated to ROM Hacking, Wraith decided he wanted to "Pass the torch", but to be honest, he just got tired of updating Donut. It wasn't much fun anymore.

ZD has a huge archive of the history of emulation. Even if we stopped updating it, I'd leave it online in its current form.

They are dumb. Thank you.
