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

First of all, I would like to compliment you guys on the site, it's really amazing, and I've been coming here since 2000 for all my emulation needs as far as programs go, and don't plan on getting them from anywhere else too soon.

Secondly, I was wondering if this site IS just message board, and the emulation aspect is just archive, or if the main site is still a part that is being monitored.

I was wondering what legal troubles you have encountered (if any) by having this site, and how much work goes into keeping a site like this running for so many years.

I don't want to see Zophar die (the emulation part of it for sure), and would like to request that I be contacted before you guys take that part down (if ever), because I would gladly take a shot at trying to run it

I know I'm going to get flamed for this post, but meh.

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.

Only one I can think of is that whole thing when the ZDStore opened and it had those Flash Advance carts (I think it was the Flash Advances, anyway), and Nintendo pretty much threw a hissy fit.

I know the http://www.eff.org/EFF</a> got involved in some fashion (since flash carts, though they can promote piracy have legitmate uses as well), but I don't remember anything else. Must be it turned out at least sort of ok since the site is here still.

I wrote nintendo an email requesting them to show cause and they never responded. The rest of the inventory was sold and that was that.

Ah ok, thanks Swamp. I couldn't remember quite how things ended, too many years have passed I suppose.
