The dolphin 5.0 thread made me thinking about starting a thread like the Nintendo/Sony/gaming news threads there.

The first post could be used as a link collection to recommended emulators and a couple of related sites like mameworld or romhacking.net and could be updated, the posts could be about news of that scene and questions related to emulators. I would care about the first post, collected a bit knowledge about the emulators in the years


any thoughts about it?

On one side, legality comes into play here, but on the other we basically use that same shit for things like spriteripping and other content making.

I'd be OK with it personally, however that's just me.

we obviously won't share links to roms here. we could give updates about emulators and new ones that are coming.
which reminds me, did you guys hear about the new 3ds emulator citra? it's still in development but it you can download a beta built of it now. it doesn't run all games and it doesn't run pirated stuff from the internet, for now, it's open source so it's bound to get modified to do so.

I think as long as it's made clear no links to ROMS will be tolerated and a good strong first post is there with links to big emulation forums and sites it'd be fine
Good day from the house of the haunted
Get a job, get a house, get a coffin
Don't stray from the path, remain where you at
That maximizes our profit
Is that blunt? Oh well, hell, so's this boot
We live to hear you say "please don't shoot"
A pure delight, c'mon, make my night
When I file reports what's right's what I write

That's the general etiquette for discussing emulation so hopefully it should be fine with those rules.

No links to roms is obvious ^^

I meant strictly news about the emulators, short descriptions of them in the first post, also stuff like if as example something like another SNES game that was only released in Japan is eventually getting a translation or a really nice new hack of a game is out. Sites like romhacks don't have roms either, just the patchfiles which are of course not illegal.

I agree with you.

Emulation thread seems fine, I think a Fan-Game thread would also be cool.

Fan games go to the Gaming or Fighting Games section.

There used to be a "non-MUGEN projects" section but people didn't use it enough, so it was merged back into gaming.
