Default My Passion For Emulation (Or, My Being a stubborn hardass.)

Heya. I'm going to guess that most of you don't know me, so here's a shot in the dark. I'm Jamie Sanders, a slightly crazy programmer who made such random technologies as vNES (www.virtualnes.com).

And so, I'm writing to make a point, and ask a question. I've been an emulation junkie since the time I was 8, when I first discovered this site. That seems to reflect on my passion for old games. I think that, with some amount of time, I could update the old pages on Zophar's domain to a more current state of releases. I'm not trying to convince everyone that ZD needs to move to some cock-up Web 2.0 platform, I'm not saying that the site needs more images, I'm saying that I'd like to update the pages of emulators, to make them more current. I've heard in the past that people come around, offer to do this, and then disappear, so I don't expect to be welcomed too warmly by barging in and saying "Hey, let's update."

And now, for the question. I would like to know, that if I took the time to update the lists, would the changes ever be uploaded? I'd just like some sign of confirmation before I go and do all this. I'm not asking for an FTP account, I'm not asking for anything else. I'm just asking if the door is still open.

As Swamp would say (to everybody repeatedly because he just refuses to do it), "do the work for me, and if it's good enough I'll think about it."

He's turned down some 20-30 new proposed themes, and none for a really good reason other than spite.

The ones that were approved lived for about 12 seconds, since the people that did want to work on them stopped doing so. I guess when they see the owner not giving two shits about this site, why should anybody else?

In the end, you better make sure that you really want to do this, otherwise you'll only add fuel to Swamp's fire that just won't die out. Plus there's that little issue of will Swamp even want you to work on it?

You worked on vNES? Make it work with Wii, dammit!

If you are asking about updating the emulator lists, you can probably do that and the changes will probably be made. What this site really needs is a redesign - there are a number of current members (myself included) that are willing and able to do the legwork and update the emulator list, upload files, do whatever gruntwork is needed to get this site up to date again. But the site needs a solid redesign before anything like that should happen.

You shouldn't listen to me, I'm not in charge...just an old fan anxious to see this site running again.

<hr></blockquote>
24, 25 at the end of this month. And even though this username doesn't reflect it, I have been coming here since about 1999. I see what was and what is now, and yes I'm a little angry about what has transpired.

Unfortunately, there's nothing that I can do about it. I am not a web site developer, and my best certainly would not be approved by anybody. This should be proof enough of that. Believe me, if it was within my capability this would've been taken care of 2 years ago. Guess it doesn't help to complain about it. <img src=http://www.zophar.net/wwwthreads/smilies/retard.gif>
