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.

NESticle reigned proud
ZSNES was in early stages
SNESticle, the hyped, fictional emulator was still mentioned

I guess Genecyst was there, though I didn't get into Sega at the time.
