It's a bit tricky, you have to hit a series of keys in the following order: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start.

Seeing as I have to be the second most noticeable person on these forums I thought it was pertinent to comment. -waits for "Who the fuck are you?"-

I'm good and glad to see you alive and well. Idk if you remember me but I used to be a staffer under your command.

Everything is good lifewise. I'm just sad that ZD which was once the Emulation go-to website, is now a vg music archive with bi-monthly emulation "news" and updates.

Well, the problem is that the emulation scene is pretty quiet, and few people are really interested in it. Everybody just goes to emuparadise or coolrom, and downloads the emulator along with the ROM. Now that most ROM/ISO sites are over a decade old the whole "OMG its illegal" thing is kinda redundant.

If you don't believe me, you can check out google trends:
https://trends.google.com/trends/exp...nes%20emulator

The music section now gets about 2,5x more pageviews than emulators. The hacks/utilities sections are really just as popular as the emulators, so I think in the future development of the site will go in that direction.

It doesn't help that the major sites in the emulation and hacking "scene" are elitists that do everything they can to dissuade people from doing anything more than "super smb haxor TAS 133t number infinity+1", "i fixed a one pixel bug", "i can haz different font in final fantazy" or working on "obscure emulator that nobody but the people on my forum use".


good to see people are still alive though, even if it took months for me to notice.

I guess I'm a few months late to the party, and I'm sorry I missed it

Thanks, Zophar, for creating one of my favorite sites; the place where I first learned about video game emulation, IRC, ROM hacking, and plenty of other things. Zophar.net was one of the major inspirations for GameHacking.org, and we will always support Zophar.net.

Cheers.
