Not to be rude, but why do I find the above 2 posts incredibly funny? Roms that arent hosted by the companys website can be dumped through rom reading devices. You might want to check out Mame, thousands of arcade games dumped by hand in rom-readers and then emulated. Literally only a handful of them were provided by the original companies/authors/programmers (see roby roto and the other couple of freeware games)

I dont see how a company not wanting this to happen is going to stop anyone. Its not like people are going to throw their hands up in the air and say "oh well, the company isnt going to freely let us download our roms, so we might as well forget it."

Part of the magic of most emulators is that there are challenges. Sometimes its in getting the boards, other times the technical complexities of the hardware... and even sometimes the ducking in the shadows from the law and IDSA, etc. www.mame.dk isn't hosted on Denmark soil for nothing you know.....


In this case, i think the roms are the least of peoples worries. Not everything "graces" the WWW, and it doesnt have to be hosted on a website for it to happen. Alternatively, perhaps a www.pinmame.dk?

In close, I think the emulation community is strong enough to withstand one company making a stink about their roms, and removing their download....LOL

Mame On!
