Remember that one time VmprhntrD wanted the VGN forums to become greater then & even surpass the then dying IGN boards?

"Tuxy's claim"

COPY N PASTE LINK, Tripod is no good for this.

Looking at the image today. Yeah, well. So that never happend, nearly ten (10) years later to the day. IGN boards still exist even today. VGN's community died within years.

Good times.

Share more of these precious sk3n3 memories later.

I remember when this board used to be active and Finalburn emulated Afterburner and before it became a soap opera with cps2.
I also remember when I released a modded XOR that patched the country code for SFZ and everyone went up in arms about it :)
good times indeed...

I remember excitedly downloading the System16 emulator and OutRun, the first time that was emulated. Took ages on a dial-up 28.8K modem!

Same here, except for Shinobi. My friend couldn't believe it was possible until I showed him!

Was when I showed Super Mario 64 running under UltraHLE to several friends. Their jaws dropped and all wanted copies!

Although my real earliest emulation memory was coming across Sinclair ZX Spectrum emulators whilst I was at college!

Unless you count BBC B Micro emulation/simulation under the Acorn Archimedes system whilst I was at secondary school...

Yeah, mine was C64S that came on a dodgy PC CD-ROM. I was trying it and the other guys couldn't understand why I wanted to play it... ^^

NESticle and TMNT3. I was hooked (though at the time not so much for nostaligiac purposes as we still had an NES).

Wow, Long time reader (since the page started) first time poster :-D. Back when NESticle came out and Neo Demiforce and that dude Neil started translating the Final Fantasy games (2 & 3), was huge for me.

Man, that sure brings me back... Having to wait for the IPS files and then manually patch them. I sure miss the thriving emulation scene, it was just so awesome back in the day. The war between SNES9x and ZSNES, the big deal when could "BUY" a PSX emulator (BLEEM). Waiting for games to get translated that you only read about in EGM and Next Gen. I sure miss that community. It's sad that it's almost completely faded away. Though it was nice to see Zophar.net make a mild comeback. :-)

...but more of a remark that the emulation scene is still relatively alive in mobile gaming. It has matured a lot, with much less drama and people generally respecting authors for their work.

If you check out the GP2X/Wiz/Cannoo forums you might recognize a few names from these same forums. Picodrive, one of the best Genesis emulators out there for PSP, GP2X and variants, is a descendant from one of "Final"Dave's later emus.

There is also some (new?) movement of homebrew based on frameworks such as Bennu/Fenix. If I'm not mistaken, that became popular on the Dreamcast but now quite popular on these open source or hacked handhelds.

I wish this site had more activity like back in the day though; perhaps we should rename some forums and focus on mobile and homebrew.

Ah the good old days. Back then everyone thought the IDSA was going to kill emulation and all emulators would be illegal. Instead all those dastardly brilliant programmers found ways to get legitimate jobs out of it and actually profit off their skills. Even Nintendo uses emulation in their virtual consoles now... Dark Ages averted.
