Maybe it's just because it's almost 5am and I still haven't slept, but I don't get this email. I've never tried After burner 2 as well, it might explain why I don't get it. So what, it doesn't have a continue option? And the guy kinda blames you? hey btw, I couldn't beat ssf2t on level 8 with your emulator so it's all your fault ;)

Oh and I didn't knew an emu needed roms, you should have told me so, I tought it emulated AIR damnit! damn you and your "not so final" burn!

ok I'll stop being sarcastic, that was some funny emails ;)
