  • Links Page 0.16 released ;) I've updated the Links Page, fixed broken links and added the updated sidebars. If you would like to be listed on the page, just mail me or Prophet.

  • NEStra 0.51 released! This is a NES emu for linux and it happens to be open source :) I'm having trouble untarring the file, so I've only provided a link to the NEStra Site. Now, go ahead and help code it :)

  • JAS-SYS1 1.1b released! JROK has already released an update to his marvelous Namco System 1 emulator, fixes include a "VESA detect fix" for Matrox cards and 2 player support (press "2"). Thanks to Zophar for the news.

  • I had to change the DNS servers, since emulationworld.com got 2 new ones :) As a result, you may be experiencing minor difficulties when trying to acces our site. It should all be fixed by tomorrow.

  • Ultra.ini 1.0.08 released! Tim over at Arcadeathome has released a new .ini, adding suppport for a few more games (like the Rumble Pack edition of Mario 64 :) and 2 (!!) new resolutions: 1280x1024 & 1600x1200. Kudos to the Ultra.ini team for updating it :)

  •   Saturday, February 27th 1999 - Last updated @ 23:00 CET

  • Word has it that BLEEM will be released tomorrow :)

  • Looks like Retrogames will soon reach 2 million visitors! I wonder if Atila has anything special planned?! :) -P-

  •   Friday, February 26th 1999 - Last updated @ 20:09 CET

  • As you've noticed, today is kinda slow. So I've decided to tell you all about MEKA, the newest Sega Master System emu, being released pretty soon. MEKA will be like Magic Engine on it's first release: near perfect! MEKA is already the most compatible SMS emu, running 306 out of 313 roms, how's that for compatible ?! It even emulates the light gun and steering wheel, has the best GUI ever, the best sound ever and a few more things that you will see at release. Click here to see the MEKA website, oh and before I forget, the author is ZOOP of EmuCamp :)

  • FCC says ISP calls are local ?! Good thing they have nothing to say here in The Netherlands, our government is confusing enough as it is :) Thanks Chris.

  • Fragmaster interviewed! He talks about Quake sites a lot, repsonds to the leaving of EmuNews from Classicgaming.com and talks a bit more about Quake, basically. Thanks to PhorceP for the link.

  • The Nokia 7110 *IS* dualband!! Thanks to everyone for pointing that out to me. Guess what I just ordered :)

  • WinNES 0.06b released! Lot of new stuff: rewritten sound emulation, joypad support, no longer requires DirectX and increased emulation window speed to name a few things. Check the WinNES site for more info. Thanks to TMT for the news.

  • One of muh homiez received this x-ray of Homer Simpson, it explains a lot .....

  • And y'all thought *I* was sad, check this dude ;) Thanks to Sharon for the link.

  • Userfriendly's "Ode to spam", can you guess the last word ?

  • GBFan 1.08 released! Check the homepage for news, if you can read/understand Japanese.

  • Ultra.ini 1.0.07 released! This is basically on big cheat fest, enjoy :) Thanks to Arcadeathome for the file!

  •   Thursday, February 25th 1999 - Last updated @ 23:07 CET

  • Slashdot.org is reporting that the FCC has ruled that "ISP calls are long distance in nature and NOT local"! This could mean that you could be charged a "per minute rate" for your Internet usage! Click here for the full story.

  • Nokia released the 7110 - it's awesome !! I will now wait for the dualband GSM 900/1800 version before I buy it :)

  • Don't you just love to cheat ? Just sneakily press that CRTL button in MAME to speed up Ms. Pacman :) Retrogames announces another site: Pugsy's MAME Cheat Page, which specializes in the CHEAT.DAT which is used with MAME. Regular updates to the cheat file, including "neomame" only cheat files, can be acquired at the site!

  • Jakesh joined us on IRC (#Retrogamers) tonight, I received a beta version of KALLUS2, the "cps2 emu". I had Gridle test it, since I was in NT, verdict: F-A-K-E !! The romloader was fixed now, so the XMEN:COTA roms loaded, but that was it. Nothing more, nothing less. Anyone expecting a fully working CPS2 driver just got a wakeup call :) So it did load the roms, but no graphics, no sound, not anything. Remember, anyone can make a rom loading CPS2 driver.

  • I added a SNES page, I know it's taking some time (dare I say "quality time" ;), but it's all worth it. We have a nice layout for the emulators and more will be added soon.

  • JoseQ posted an update to his Rumour Mill :)

  • FutureGamer (excellent *FREE* E-zine) will be doing an emulation feature next issue, so hop on over to their website so you can go sign up for their excellent ezine (registering is free) and have it delivered to your mailbox every week (for offline reading) OR read it online at the FutureGamer website.

  • Here's GL2IDEa, it totally rocks in Windows NT :) The text in Zelda is partially shown now and Mario looks real good!

  • Surf the Net with your Nintendo64! Thanks to Kalamaru for the link.

  • Gridle posted a MASSIVE update @ The MAME Work-In-Progress Page

  • This site is spreading "a leaked beta of Reality2, the successor to UltraHLE". What it is, is a GUI and nothing else, it doesn't run ANY games! RealityMan is NOT involved in this and thus has nothing to do with this fake release. RealityMan cannot be held responsible for anything to happens to your machine if you DO decide to run it!!!

  • Harry Tuttle releases CADASH (US version, TG-16) !! This is an extremely RARE rom and it's available for DIRECT DOWNLOAD on the site, no need to go through The Vault to download it! Retrogames would also like to congratulate Harry with the site's second anniversary :) -A-

  • Click HERE to see the new HotRod SE! This looks to be an awesome arcade panel for those who don't want to build one from scratch. It has 7 buttons per player, and uses the same awesome Happ Super Joysticks I used on my project.(Richard - why didn't you tell me about the update?!) -P-

  • Zophar's has added a Rom hacking/translating page! You can learn how to hack roms to translate languages, alter graphics and make other changes to existing games. Get to work all you creative, multi-lingual people! :) -P-

  • Speak Italian? Go HERE for IMAME and IMAME32 - MAME in Italian! :) -P-

  • Zing's interview with Steve Snake is a great read! It also has some cool hints at a new version (maybe) of KGen! -P-

  • Saint has informed that Stephan Hans, Simon Nield, Earle F.P. III, and Benji York have been collaborating, and have succesfully created an interface to hook your Nintendo 64 controllers to your PC. Check it out HERE if you're interested. -P-

  • Damned typos! I fixed the link to AdamEm 1.0 DOS. You should be able to actually download it now... My apologies. -P-

  •   Wednesday, February 24th 1999 - Last updated @ 22:00 CET

  • JoseQ has updated his Rumour Mill, some very juicy stuff in there, be SURE to read the bottom part CAREFULLY!!

  • GB Tracker English translation @ DBOY Site :)

  • Mr. unNESsential (Bjorn Astrom) interviewed!

  • I got MAMEnet to run, but it crashed about 10 seconds after start up, crashes kept recurring after that. So I wasn't able to run it :(

  • Rodimus Prime interviewed by Zing!

  • EDGE reports about UltraHLE, click here to read the article, typed by Gibster (hey Gibster, we got OCR scanners nowadays, thanks anyway though =) I'll scan the article as soon as I get my own copy of EDGE and put it online.

  • New KBMAME released! Deimos has updated KBMAME with dynamic driver loading, this means that when a new game is released, you edit the file that comes with it and you can play it without having to recompile!! Here's the C core version and here's the ASM core version. As usual, this was first announced on our general emulation messageboard, thanks Deimos :)

  • I'm also going to try out MAMEnet now, should be a blast, but that LAN requirement seems a bit steep. Oh well, cable rocks !

  • The Next Generation of Tetris is coming to you soon :) Thanks to TMT for the news.

  • I was watching RAW - Eddie Murphy (stand up show from 1987 :), that's why there were no updates. I'm gonna try and encode it to RealVideo, so it can be distributed easier :)

  • NES4PC news: Right now, I'm working on the MMC1 code. There seems to be a problem with the code for 256k page switching, and likely some other stuff, so games like Dragon Warrior 3 and 4 don't work right now. (Of course, DW1/2 don't work either, but that's another story...) Zelda 2's overworld map is also screwed up tile-wise, just like it was before it broke, so I'm trying to find out if it's a MMC1 error or if it's something in my sprite 0 hit code or my scanline engine or what... =/

  • AdamEm 1.0 DOS was released! AdamEm is a Colecovision/Adam emulator by Marcel de Kogel. Visit the homepage for more info and versions. -P-

    Replaced sound files and improved sound emulation, Replaced Marat Fayzullin's Z80 emulation code with Z80Em, Improved ADAMNet emulation, Replaced the colour palette. The palette used in older versions can still be used with the "-palette 1" option, Added parallel port emulation, Added expansion RAM support, Added snapshot support, Added 80-column TDOS support, Added cheat-code support, Added reverb and stereo support for SoundBlaster Pro and SoundBlaster 16 compatibles, Fixed some minor bugs.

  • Hmm... Not what I expected from someplace called Emuworld! Thanks Dutch. -P-

  • Mike Balfour (MAMEdev & Pac-X author) was interviewed by Emuviews, and JoseQ also reported on JROK's new JAS NAMCO System 1 emu and MAMEnet - the netplay version of MAME! -P-

  • VR32MAME 16bit is a special NeoGeo MAME (0.35b3) which claims to allow large games to run in very little memory (at least 32mb) through virtual memory. It also supports 16-bit color for all games and supports the Samsho3 soundfix. I haven't tested this, so use it at your own risk. Daren (Cloud) also has a non16-bit version at his homepage. -P-

  •   Tuesday, February 23rd 1999 - Last updated @ 22:30 CET

  • New Virtual Boy emu ?? They already have a version for download, but it doesn't do anything yet. It does have a nice GUI though :) Thanks to ToomuchTang for the news.

  • RockNES Site updated with a bit of news, but no new release ... yet: Fixed the problem with detection if there are more than 8 sprites at current scanline (a stupid bug); Fixed another bug with joypads (btw, joypad 2 isn´t working); Fixed a CPU bug which was breaking Battletoads games!

  • Microsoft loses another court case :) M$ kinda stole the character they wanted to use for Office 2000 ("Rocky the Dog") from a company called Inner Workings, who called their canine desktop dog, "Lemon Dog". It's at the bottom of the page :) Thanks to Mike Balfour for the link.

  • Here's a nice spoof, www.realhamster.com :-)

  • Zing interviews 64bit! 64bit is a member of the Moonlit Coalition, who are also working on an N64 emu. The emu, called Sunset, is already in a pretty advanced state running demos at high frame rates, because it uses dynamic recompilation (like UltraHLE). He also mentions another emu called "Moonrise", but he gives no further info ...

  • New Carnival samples for MAME, courtesy of Duglis :)

  • BTW - sorry for the typos before - links to KBMAME should now work... -P-

  • Just a reminder: KBMAME & OCMAME (and all other MAME versions) would not even begin to be possible without the incredible work of the MAME team - you guys are awesome! Thanks! :) -P-

  • I've emailed Jakesh regarding Kallus 2. Let's see what happens... -P-

  • Deimos Zero updated KBMAMEa (ASM core for best speed) & KBMAMEc (C core for Shock Troopers etc.) to include user-definable overclocking and added an 8th button. Everyone is encouraged to check our General Emulation board for KBMAME and OCMAME news - Deimos Zero and Haze are welcome guests there and often announce releases there first! -P-

Matt Conte has decided to follow Jim (Emunews) and leave Classicgaming.com too, he's currently looking for a new place to be hosted, we have already offered to help out, but click here to mail Matt Conte if YOU are willing to help out with the hosting of his site. Thanks to JoseQ for the news

  • EmuNews to leave Classicgaming.com !! Jim Pragit had a few problems with his ISP, which are all explained on the site, which forces him to leave them. CG has registed emunews.com but is not willing to make it point to the Emunews site, it points to the CG Site. They don't want to give/sell it Jim either ... Jim will be moving his site back to his old location @ AOL, http://members.aol.com/emunews

  • DBOY 0.44c official English translation released!

  • TKmame updated again! Chris has updated his MAME frontend (that runs under Windows AND Linux!!), here's what's new: A Fatal bug in the last release is fixed in this release. If you got an error message upon startup with the last version, try this one and a bug in the last release that prevented you from setting windows default colors is fixed.

  • Mike Hardmeier sent this link to a Dreamcast emulator, it made him chuckle, it makes me chuckle too :) Sure it could be real, but then again, it could be another one in the line of illustrous fakes. Only real DC emu that I know of to this date is DeCent.

  • PSEmu Site updated! Tratax has written a nice piece on what's currently going on with PSEmu developement, he also informs us about his current "work status" and a few more things. Thanks to Adrox for the news.

  • MAMEFLYERS joins Retrogames! Xray1 moved his site from Geocities to Retrogames, where it has found its new home. It provides pics which can be used with MAME32 or various MAME frontends such as TKmame and Arcade@home.

  • Dave Haywood released a SECOND version of his earlier "NeoMAME" release, added now is 16bit support for all games. Click here to get the Overclocked NeoMAME :)

  • I thought I had some flu but it turns out that nasty infection I had a while back returned. I *thought* that antibiotics were supposed to help ?? Anyway, it started Wednesday, made my body shake all over (and it wasn't because of pleasure ;) for about 6 hours straight. Then I had to throw up a couple of times and I spent the rest of the time in bed. Never knew there was so much crap on TV after midnight, or before for that matter :) I kinda considered this as a "holiday", since I never get a day off. I work 14 hours a day, 7 days a week, so any day I don't have to work is a treat for me. The only thing left now is that I feel VERY tired, I was thinking of some form of Pfeiffer's, but since my brother isn't here I can't verify it. On another note, I'd like to thank everyone for the "get well soon!" mails I received. I had 800 (!!) mails in 4 days, on all sorts of topics, it was quite a read :) I'd also like to thank "Smacky G" for the best laugh a sick man could get :) -A-

  • Shawn Hargreaves interviewed! Shawn is the author of Allegro, the most widely used FREE graphics library, which is also used in MAME and about a zillion other programs :) -A-

  • C.L.E.A.R. is reporting that the ELSPA has teamped up with the IDSA to make us suffer even more. Where the IDSA "just" shuts down sites, the ELSPA will "prosecute [the offenders] to the fullest". This statement alone is probably enough to scare most webmasters to quit their sites. Click here to read the full story. -A-


  • David Haywood has compiled yet another interesting version of NeoGeo MAME - Overclocked NeoMAME! (PLEASE NOTE - this is NOT an official MAME release so don't even *think* about bothering MAME team with questions!) He basically set the NeoGeo's 68000 to 22Mhz instead of the normal 12Mhz. The idea is to avoid the slowdowns in games like Metal Slug etc. I tried it and IT WORKS! You'll need a very fast PC to really make good use of it, but you can get it HERE. It won't dl with GetRight BTW... -P-

  • Kallus 2 seems to be getting a bit of attention lately... All I have to say at this time is - I'll believe it when I see/test it. Lots of ppl informed me that the current beta is actually a password protected ARJ file... Very, very strange - but a little controversy is fun. -P-

  • EmuSpain is reporting that NeoGem will see another release soon! Also, Double Dribble and Combat School (original Konami set) have been dumped - hopefully they'll be added to MAME someday. -P-

  • JoseQ's Emuviews has an interview with Jamsponge of Hu6280, and also reports about Aaron Giles' new MAME Exidy driver supporting games like Cheyenne, Clay Pigeon, Combat, Crossbow, Showdown and Who Dunnit! -P-

  • The MAME ROM Info page has moved! I kinda like the new address :) Welcome to Retrogames Gordon! -P-

  • CabMAME 0.35b3 released. This is a special version of MAME for people who use MAME on a real arcade monitor. Thanks PLB. -P-

  • Moah has released KoF91 v0.35! Check it out HERE. This is NOT a real NeoGeo game - it's a homemade fighter, but new features are being added constantly, so you might want to start enjoying it now. -P-

  • MAME Merge 2.13 was released by Insane. This is a great utility to neaten up your ROM collection. Check out the homepage for needed resource files... -P-

  • GreyBrains informs me that networm viruses like Happy99.exe (email attachment) are going around at Glide Underground. If you visit there and exchange emails with them, you might want to be careful. -P-

  • Hu6280 Windows v0.89 beta 5 was released! (Adrox :) -P-

    Added a .ini file, edit this for your own custom settings... (rompath,savegamepath,screenshotpath and sound options) much more friendly loading and saving games... (assumes a nice filename) much more friendly saving screenshots (assumes a nice filename) Fixed a memory leak.

  • RockNES 0.71 was released (Adrox :) -P-

    Compiled with the new Allegro 3.1, which was compiled with pgcc; Fixed NES RAM size (too big); Fixed a couple of minor bugs, like unused variables.

  • Bleem page was updated with a new look and other news - no release dates or anything yet. Thanks Adrox. -P-

  • Atila says he'll be back sometime today (Sunday)!!! :) -P-

  •   Saturday, February 20th 1999 - Last updated @ 10:30 CET

  • Deimos Zero has revised MAME 0.35 beta 3 DOS and compiled KBMAME! This is a fantastic NeoGeo-only MAME with some great special features: 16-bit color enabled for *ALL* games, and the ability to define buttons 5,6 & 7 for A+B, C+D & A+B+C combinations. There are two builds - the "a" build uses an ASM 68000 core which is less "stable," but faster. I just tested that version and it seemed stable enough. The speed is incredible though!

  • Apollo69 has released the Samurai Shodown 3 *soundfix* - approx. 3.5mb! NeoCharity was also updated with the SS3 news as well as a hint about "more kewl stuff on the way." Hmm... What's Chem up to now? -P-

  • Hmm... Just got home. I have no idea what happened to Atila. Let's hope he comes back soon! I'll try to update this page as best I can during his absence. -P-

  • Seems like this will be the new hart of the Playstation2/PSX2, thanks to Chris White for the mail.

  • ZD-SPC 1.81 released! I can't see straight at this moment I think, because the ZD-SPC still shows version 1.80, but feel to check it out anyway. On another note, I have this feeling I'm going to end up real sick in a moment. Must have been that dentist this morning, 2 fillings :(

  • Wonder why there were so few updates today ? I was playing Mario64 with the NEW Glide Wrapper which rocks ! This is an OpenGL wrapper, if your card has good opengl support, be prepared to be amazed!!

  • Yeah, fair trades only, I know where you live!

  • I forgot to announce this, but MacMAME 0.35b3a (with a keyboard fix) is available on our mame page

  • UNOFFICIAL MAME32 0.35 b3 released! Do not bug the MAME or MAME32 TEAM with questions !! -A-

  • More news about RockNES. Thanks again Adrox. -P-

    Fixed RockNES shutdown (when quit to DOS prompt); Fixed problem with -nosound option; Correct sound startup/shutdown (no more crash when you quit); Fixed a stupid problem with gamepad/joysticks (working again).

  • New *BETA* ultra.ini released! From the site: This beta ini file has attempted to get Sillicon Valley, Fox Sports Hoops 99, Dark Rift and a couple others to work. Some of the games are playable and some aren't. Thanks to Daemon for the news.

  • It's rather quiet today, time for fun :-)

  • Here's a mail I received from Jim, who says you can get ANY Sidewinder to work with DOS MAME they way it should:

    Yes, your Sidewinder will work with ANY version of mame, and most other programs that do not support joysticks. Your SW comes with a program that helps you make a Sidewinder Profile. Set it up, make a MAME file, and put all the keys MAME uses into the MAME profile. Then use the -Joy 2 (Dual Joysticks) option in MAME. Then you will have no problems using 4-6 or all Buttons on your SW. Make sure you have the latest version 3.02.039 from Microsoft.

    Here's a sample MAME.SWG which you can use. I wasn't able to try it myself, because my MAME stopped functioning in a dosbox for some weird reason.

  • Will the next iMAC have two big ears ??? According to a posting at slashdot (which is based on rumours), Disney is thinking of buying Pixar and APPLE !

  • =NEON= updated! Neon is a split rom site for neogeo roms, it now has about 20 roms online, almost all the latest releases, including the entire KOF series (KOF98 included!!)

  • Gordon has updated his MAME ROM INFO PAGE. This page contains all sorts of info on the current romsets, and the changes to the romsets between the betas. Definately one to check out!

  • Dboy 0.44a translation: Version 0.44 TAMA 5 (?), LCD option is changed. Also cmdline - mbc 1 is no longer necessary, changed to MBC 1. Version 0.44a - MBC 1 is corrected again. Thanks to Brian Livingston for the translation.

  • MacMAME 0.35 B3 released! The source overrides are available on our MAME page, thanks to Jeff Astarte for the news.

  • Sunset (a new unreleased N64 emu) has been tested by the webmaster of CN64ES. He received an early beta and gave it a good testing :) Sunset uses Dynamic Recompilation (just like UtraHLE) but it isn't as advanced as UHLE yet. It is however, faster than any other N64 emu out there (besides UHLE ofcourse). The big difference with UHLE is that Sunset DOES run a LOT of demos, the firedemo for instance, runs faster than 10 fps!

  • New ultra.ini for UltraHLE released! This .ini seems to focus on speeding up the emulation for several games adds cheats and comments to several games. Thanks to UNAE for the news/file

  •   Monday, February 15th 1999 - Last updated @ 22:04 CET

  • RockNES news: Rockboard (a japanese Rockman board game) works fine!

  • MAMEWIP updated!!

  • I've heard MAMEDEV's complaining, complaining like they've NEVER done before. Apparently some of you out there don't get it. MAMEDEV's (or any other emu author out there for that matter) don't owe you ANYTHING, why you would mail them DEMANDING roms and a faster MAME is beyond me. Complaints like "Mortal Kombat runs too slow on my machine, are these MAMEDEVs dumb or something" don't help. If you're having trouble finding roms, that's too bad. DO NOT MAIL emu authors with rom requests, it usually just makes them VERY mad, because it means you cannot read the docs. If you cannot read the docs, then why are you using an emulator ? Mails like "How do I start a game ?!!!??" are not helping anyone. Then we have the part where people are mailing MAMEDEV's with things like "You suck! Why can't you make a decent emu, you lame *ss (censored)?!!?!?". I know a few authors that have stopped working on several projects because of the things I've listed. Some people seem to be forgetting that th ese emu authors are doing us a BIG favour, they're giving us the possibility to enjoy those games we spent so much money on as kids. I personally was thrilled when I saw Gyruss running on my machine, my brother completely freaked out! It wasn't running fullspeed and it didn't have full sound. Did I care ? No! Because I could play Gyruss on my machine, the sound emulation to me was an added bonus. The speed got better for me when I upgraded my system, let's not forget that MAME isn't designed with speed in mind. It's designed as a documentational project, speed is not high on the list, perfect emulation is. If you want speed, please use Retrocade, another fine emu, designed WITH speed in mind. And no,it doesn't support 1140 games. But it is fast :) Another point is this, if a programmer writes a piece of code that lets him play one of his old favorite games again, there's no reason he has to distribute it to anybody. He could keep it to himself and enjoy playing his game. We need to remember that if we are getting something for free, we need to either be happy with what we have, or forget it and move on.

  • #Retrogamers Site updated again, thanks to Lance :)

  • I received a few mails from Dr. Mario today, regarding his Jaguar emulator. He has made good progress with it and has most games running at about 11 fps in WIN98. Considering the architecture of the Jaguar, that ain't bad :) He has also informed me that the emulator will be a Retrogames eXclusive release, thanks Dr. Mario ! He also needs a Jaguar, since he lost his in "the process" of tearing it apart for a closer look at the internals :) If you have a new or 2nd hand Jaguar (or games) please mail me and I will forward it to him.

  • Need money ? Go ask for your Microsoft Windows Refund ;)

  • Pentium III reviewed, it's gets 6 out of 10 ;)

  • NeoMAME 0.35 B3 released! It's not available on Apollo69's site yet, but Snotz was kind enough to give it to Zophar's Domain. Thanks to Emulation Happenings for the news.

  • GBFAN 1.07c released! I have no idea what's new, click here to go to GBFan Site. TMT, baby ;)

  • I've added a MAME Page. It's does not contain all MAME versions yet, I have some updating to do :)

  • TKMame has released an UNOFFICIAL XMAME 0.35b3 for i386/linux platforms! The source patch for 'nix systems can be downloaded here.

  • Slow loading times on Netscape are now a thing of the past (I think :)

  • MAME 0.35 B3 released ! Here's the source to the new release! Btw, if you have the Street Fighter 1 set called "streetf.zip", just rename it to "sf1jp.zip" and run it it MAME like this: MAME SF1JP

  • Kazzuya leaves PSEmu too! He too has accepted a job at a gaming company, click here to read the full annoucement. Thanks to Deej for the sad news.

  • Here's a link to the GAMEPOWER MAME PAGE, it will clarify a lot.

  • Back to business, here's NES4PC 0.35 Alpha release 1. It now has sound implemented but since this is an ALPHA release, expect lotsa trouble :) Thanks to UNAE for the news.

  • I had 3 "angry" mails (but many many more good ones) about my earlier post about Gamepower. If you don't know the entire story, you CANNOT make good judgements about this matter. If you've been visiting this site for the past 6 months, you'll know what I mean. Gamepower makes it seem like THEY made MAME, like you should kiss the ground they walk on because THEY allow you to play the games of yesteryear on your PC. As for the IDSA, who cannot effectively shut down big WAREZ sites, so they justify their paycheck by harrasing sites like ours, Dave's, and about a zillion more. Emulation is to blame for the $6,000,000,000 of missed revenues by big companies every year, wasn't it Garth (Wayne's World) that said: "Yeah, and monkeys may fly out of my butt!" ? I'm sorry if I've upset any people by the "harshness" of the previous post, but this needed to be said. You can reply to anything I post on Retrogames by clicking on the "Atila" link on the left sidebar.

  • I just read Shane R. Monroe's site, he's mad at Gamepower (for all the good reasons btw), so here's the link to Gamepower's FTP with all MAME ROMS, leech that FTP dry. If we can't have roms, neither can they! Also feel free to report them AGAIN to the IDSA. And to the IDSA I would like to say: "Still scared of the big boys (cmp.com) eh?" You show you have a solid backbone.

  • Here's a site that has numerous CARNAVAL pics up, be amazed ;) There are also a lot of parades during those few days, thos e are also covered !

  • PACX 0.1 released! This is a very prelim. release, but it's fun nonetheless :)

  • New Ultra.ini released! This new version ( (for UltraHLE) supports a few more games, adds cheats for a few games and allows Mario (PAL version) to be played. Thanks to Arcadeathome for the news/file

  • More Carnaval news: I saw a girl last night that put doggy biscuits in her hair. You may think that was weird, but the was one of the more sanely dressed people :) A circus Clown would NOT wear what most people wear during Carnaval! I'll post some links/pics later today so you can all have a good laugh ;)

  • Antonio has has put up an (unofficial?) Spanish translation of the IDSA Boycott Page, click here to read it.

  • The IDSA's Frequently Avoided Questions, courtesy of Maff Rignall :)

  • Yes, the power of Viagra ...... Thanks to Sandra (yes a girl ;) for the link.

  • PACX joins Retrogames! PAC-X is a new emu first mentioned by Dave a while ago, coded by Mike Balfour (MAMEDEV). Pac-X is a 3-D first-person version of Pac-Man running off of the original game engine through the magic of emulation, kinda like "Pacman meets Doom"-style gameplay. The first version will be online later today (we hope), the 3D part will be implemented in a few weeks. This should be very good :)

  • Today's the start of "CARNAVAL" here in The Netherlands. Carnaval is supposed to be a religious event (well, it used to be, had to do with the ending of the fasting period for the christians), but nowadays it's THE reason for adults (and non-adults ;) to get drunk and stay drunk for FOUR DAYS!! It's mainly celebrated below the Dutch rivers (kinda splits the country in half), people in Amsterdam look real weird when they see it on TV :) People dress up in REALLY weird costumes (kinda like Halloween, I suppose) and drink, drink, drink. It should come to noone's surprise that there is a "baby boom" about 9 months after its end :) It's also celebrated in Belgium and Germany, btw (NB. how could I forget Brazil ?!?). -A-

  • Here's the link to EmuUnlim's interview ("Email Wars") with Connectix, it's a mighty fine read, but you get a few cold answers ("No comment") because of the things going on with Sony. But still, it's worth the read :) -A-

  • Absolutely massive update on the MAMEWIP Page! Lotsa pics from new games, news about a new ASM z80 core and a whole lot more! -A-

  • Romlist has released the *sound fix* for Shock Troopers!!! -P-

  • I apologize for my lack of updates lately - been busy and tired... For those who are interested, my arcade panel is nearing completion. The trakball has been worked out, and hopefully I'll post some pics soon. :) -P-

  • FFVIII (PSX) seems to have anti-piracy detection! Apparently, the game cannot be run when your PSX is modded, not even if you have the ORIGINAL FFVIII discs. Click here for the full story, thanks to Charlie for the link.

  • Slashdot is reporting that the UltraHLE authors have released the source code. Their story is based on a fairly inaccurate story from Wired, which you can read here. Since when is GossiTheDog the author and since when is a disassembled piece of code actually SOURCE code ?!

  • HelloGB h110212 released! This update has better sound emulation :) Thanks to Kalamaru for the news (sorry for the REALLY late update, Kalamaru)

  • Prophet has added a NES page, it will be updated regularly. This is not final, since we still miss quite a few emus, I will update later today.

  • Emuunlim will have another "Email Wars" up tonight, it's a special one though. They will be interviewing Connectix' VIRTUAL GAME STATION devteam! Some of the issues talked about will be: the legal case (Sony vs. Connectix), their views on emulation and the WINDOWS port of Virtual Game Station. Be sure to check Emuunlim later today!

  • UserFriendly keeps cracking me up, here's today's cartoon, no introduction necessary =)

  • I've updated the #RetroGamers homepage again, more ugly faces added ;)

  • We have moved back in to #Retrogamers on EFnet IRC. Let's hope this is the last time we "move".

  • New ROM Converter for Danji released! Compig released this update, which supports Stakes Winner 2. Click here to download it, the usage is as follows: rom_cnv sw2, enjoy :)

  • CLEAR has posted an update to the NINTENDO story on their site, stating NCL (Nintendo) would probably NOT win a court case. They list a series on reasons which make a LOT of sense, they had a legal person take a look at it. Click HERE to read the update.

  • Feel free to use the General Emulation Messageboard to voice YOUR opinion about NINTENDO story from yesterday. -A-

  • The Official IDSA Boycott Page has received a mail from Fox Interactive stating they would allow games that are 10 years or older to be freely distributed over the net. Now that's good news :) -A-

  •   Thursday, February 11th 1999 - Last updated @ 23:20 CET

  • Nintendo *will* sue Realityman and Epsilon: "Nintendo is very disturbed that Reality Man and Epsilon have widely distributed a product designed solely to play infringing copies of copyrighted works developed by Nintendo and its third-party licensees. We are taking several measures to further protect and enforce our intellectual property rights which, of course, includes the bringing of legal action. Emulators and Roms are clearly infringing and damage not only 'larger industry players' such as Nintendo but hundreds of smaller companies who invest millions of dollars and thousands of hours to develop and program software only to have it stolen on the Internet." What effect will this have on other emulation projects ? Click here for the full story! Thanks to ManBeast for the link. (NB. I will offer the services of my lawyers if needed) -A-

  • I was watching the Discovery Channel last night late and I saw an AOL commercial. It ended with "AOL, so easy to use, no wonder we're #1!". Obviously, I was gobsmacked.

  • Gridle enlights us with yet another MAMEWIP update, those screenshots look cool!

  • Dextrose has put up a nice scanned article about the IDSA, emulation, and good ol' piracy: "Industry watchdog battles the pirates".

  • GlideUnderground is reporting that Helder Filipe has finally got a 100% complete working Glide Wrapper (works 100% on his i740 gfx card)! The downside is that he won't be releasing it UNTIL he has looked into the legal side of it, as he fears that 3DFX might take legal action. When that's figured out (for the better), he will release it.

  • Oh man, FINALLY!! The person that invented this will be a billionaire before sundown: Bumper Dumper! A toilet attached to the back of your car, what else could a man wish for ?! "Use the Bumber Dumper when you need to go, on the go!" Best of all, it's only $59,95 (5 free dumper bags included!!)

  • "Welcome to to the hottest site on the Web for hardcore furniture action! If you're ready to see some hot, horny home furnishings get their freak on then you're in the right place!! You won't believe what our furniture will do! It'll make you pop your springs and throw your pillows!!" This is what the site says and they're right, I also have to add that no furniture was harmed during photo-shoots. Click here and enjoy it (the Bondage part is real nice -- Atila ;)

  • NeoCharity released Stakes Winner 2!!! Don't forget to write down the new zip password! -P-

  • ClrMAME RC3 now available! Click HERE for a copy of the 35b2 dat file if you need it. Click HERE to read what's new in this release. -P-

  • I (Prophet) spent several hours last night assembling my new arcade control panel. It's not finished yet (trakball still needs to be added and more wiring to do) but overall it turned out great! If you're serious about arcade emulation - build a panel or buy one of the pre-built models. It makes playing games very authentic and more fun! :) -P-

  • JoseQ has posted a new rumor mill. Some interesting tidbits regarding Bleem, CAGE and other stuff... -P-

  • HU6280 for WIN32 beta 3 released!! SOUND Emulation is here!! Jamsponge rocks ;)

  • TrueReality for DOS released! Lemmy (the author of Nemu64) gave me this yesterday, I kinda forgot to update with it. Lemmy ported this to DOS, so I guess it's the first DOS based N64 emu too =)

  • Microsoft bashing is cool ;)

  • I think we've figured out the Netscape load time problem (is that a good sentence btw ?), the images are the problem. The width and height are not all configured for all, I will also replace the black counter with a CGI one.

  • We've moved for now, to #Retrogamers+ (with the + at the end) on EFnet IRC.

  • It seems that Netscape users have to wait a long time before my page is fully loaded, could someone please check my source and see what's wrong ? In IE4/5 it loads fast btw.

  • Jamsponge (HU6280) interviewed! Manbeast (Emuunlim) gets a few good answers and exclusives, Jamsponge will release his source code soon. How's that for a change ? He also says his goal is 100% correct emulation (which at this speed should be VERY soon ;) of HuCards and CDs.

  • Videogames.com has set up a nice VideoGame Aptitude Test, you get asked lotsa videogame related questions, some are easy, some are difficult :) So you think you know everything about videogames eh? Try this test and find out :) Thanks to RAOH for the link.

  • It seems Williams might not be against rom distribution of old rom images after all! On their site is a Q&A type of newsletter, here's an small piece: Question: I see that you have a ROM Library but it apparently only has Pinball ROMs. I have a Robotron with a bad ROM 1 chip. Can I get ROM images for my Robotron from you? Here's the remarkable answer by "Uncle Willy": Uncle Willy feels your pain. Robotron is one of the way-coolest video games of all time. Unfortunately, there is no move afoot to add video game ROMs to our web site. The ROM archives have slowly been created through the spare-time effort of employees in the pinball engineering group, and Uncle Willy hasn't heard of any of them working on compiling the video ROM information. While Uncle Willy can't provide you with the ROMs, he does know that you might be able to repair your game by asking your question on the rec.games.video.arcade.collecting newsgroup. Surely some kind soul there will b e able to help you. (I know,and "stop calling you Shirley" right?). Click here to read the full Q&A, thanks to Sean Palmer for the mail.

  • HelloGB updated! This new version fixes Super/ColorGB problems and channels 3 and 4. ToomuchTang is bad for your health ;)

  • Massage 1.0 (Sega Master System emulator) should be out soon! Thanks to EmuCamp for the news.

  • More MAMEWIP news @ the MAME Site!

  • Some things have been going on lately that weren't too nice. I have decided to stop referring about them. What I will do, is focus on making Retrogames even better than it is =) I think Retrogames is one of the few sites out there that acknowledges it CANNOT exist without the help of other emu sites out there. Retrogames has *ALWAYS* given credit where credit was due and will continue to do so. I remember when I first started (10 months ago) I had about 10 hits/day, 8 of those were mine and Teego's :) It gradually went up to be about 25,000 hits/day now, something I obviously owe to my visitors. Retrogames will *NEVER* forget it exists because of YOU, the visitors! I have also decided to make the "million game" a recurring thing, every millionth visitor will get free game(s)/ram upgrade/hardware upgrade of their choice, $200 max :) The NEOGEO rom I'm donating (in conjunction with Apollo69) to NeoCharity will be bought this week. All I can say right now is that it is a *VERY* rare game, we're gl ad we got it!

  • There's a new version of UltraHLE doing the rounds. It has the Debug console enabled, I will *NOT* post this since it is *NOT* an official release by Realityman & Epsilon . Any webmaster that posts it, should be humiliated in public. Thanks to all the people that mailed/icq'd me

If you have lots of cash, take a look at the Retrostik. I've had email conversations with the presidents of both company's and they're both very cool and serious about offering great products. Also, try Twisty Grip for great Tempest type *spinners* and Star Wars type yokes! And NO, I'm NOT getting paid for this! Just thought some of you might be interested. :) -P-

  • Shane Monroe mailed me this pic of a joystick which works wonders with UltraHLE. [Shameless plug] It has digital AND analogue control, 6 buttons, rapid fire selector and "one finger throttle control".

  • I've listened to the Allgames show, I downloaded it (about 30 MB), but you can also listen to it streamed with video (85 kbps). It's pretty cool to see Zelda running almost all the time, but you also have the allgames staffers on there :) One of them knows the emus, and the other 2 are probably emu newbies, Manbeast and The Fox are live on the air, for about 40 minutes, the entire show lasts about 50 minutes.

  • Hmm... Slow day... umm... go play a game or something! :) (Proph)

  • Having problems with Shark 3.0? It appears to have several bugs, but if you're experiencing choppy scrolling in full-screen modes, try installing Scitech Display Doctor and using the SDD video driver. It should help solve the choppiness, as well as offer other benefits. (Proph)

  • Speaking of N64 emulation and EmuUnlim.com, Nemu64 has been updated! (Proph)

    To whoever "disassembled" it, I hope your PC sucks disk and gets WIN95.CIH!

  • I got Mario working too :) After getting a few mails from people about using the "Window mode (for debug)" and "Force software emulation" options. I enabled "Window mode" and got it working, try fiddling around with the options, you might get it to work too :) Thanks to the people that mailed me.

Best suggestion I have heard all week :) Click here to read the entire letter.

  • New GlideWrapper (v0.24) let's you play Mario! Yep, LET's glidewrapper lets you play mario and zelda and all of those other games.

  • sWampy left this message about ClrMAME RC 2a having a "bug" in the CLEAN function. I was contacted by the author, Roman Scherzer, who explained: (Hope this clears up any problems - Prophet)

    IT'S NOT A BUG ! Well everybody knows that ClrMame only backup files and not subfolders (with possible files)... The backuped files will be store in 'backup.cmw/{gamename}' Why ? Well...A clean mameromset ONLY consist of some rom/samplefiles and nothing more...The backupfunction is basically made for roms of a game which aren't used in the current version of mame but will be supported in one of the next versions (e.g.soundroms...).... Maybe I will add a full backup (subfolders and files within these subfolders) in one of the next versions.

It's mentioned as a good alternative to Dave's site with one difference, that we still host roms (I'd also like to add that we're the most frequently updated site around :) Thanks for all your support!!

  • I have been banned from Dave's Messagboards today, I was already banned from #emu (by Dave) and #davesclassics for no apparent reason, this is the message I get when trying to acces his boards: "You or someone from your ISP is banned from use of these CGI scripts." Goldmine (my ISP) supplies static IPs, so shouldn't have banned the whole of Goldmine. Last time I checked, we were both MAMEDEV's and both running an emulation site. Guess someone doesn't like the competition ......

  • _64Bit_ has posted an update on his N64 emu's site, Sunset. He says there will be one final release of Sunset, which will be MORE advanced than any other N64 emu out there, except UltraHLE. Be sure to read the Sunset Site for more news
