Subject: C64 ROMS
From:
Okay, MOST C64 games are technically not "ROMS". But, as Jake points out, *Some* C64 games did come on ROMS.

I spent many an hour hacking up my C64 by adding a reset button and putting a toggle switch on the data/power lines of the cartridge port. I dumped about two dozen cartridges and wrote loaders for them that would put them back in the appropriate memory locs, disable the BASIC/KERNEL ROMS, and start the games.

Some ROMS that I remember dumping include: Buck Rogers and the Planet of Zoom, A Super Breakout Clone, A Rally-X clone featuring mice, and a half dozen arcade games like Donkey Kong. Ahhh... the good old days....

Great games archive, but can we have some emu links? How about Comeback64, WinVice, Frodo and C64S for starters!

(PS...C64 games did come on roms, what do you think the cartridges had in them!!)

Subject: Not exactly :-)
From:
1, Calling disk/tape images roms are only important as they develop further misunderstanding for those emulator users who have never had first hand experiences with those computers. Since I admit it's not convenient to call them with the media type they were taken from, one suggestion would be to simply call them "games" ;-)
The word "roms" have been abused a lot during the last few years. BTW write protected disks are not valid replacement for any media that the cpu can access randomly, hence it's definitely incorrect, but as I said not that is the reason...
2, It's not my views on games, but industry standards. Although you can many genre collectively as "arcade", adventure games are not :-)

Hope this explains, since your site posts correct comprehensive reports etc., not to mention "roms", I thought it is for the better, as many users take their "emuviews" from your site. So like it or not, you may consider yourself as a good teacher in this area, who can teach people things, they are to ignorant to otherwise care about.

Best wishes and keep up the good work,
IF

I don't want to bitch about this, but...
C64 games did not come in the form of roms, they were originally on tapes, later 5.25 disks. Since they were heavily pirated, as a last resort some of them were released as cartridges, about a dozen by Ocean, Psygnosis and System 3 sw houses.
Also some of these games are definitely not arcade games, but adventures, platformers etc.

Regards,
IF

really?

ROM=ReadOnlyMemory. Write protected disks fit into this media arena (even if they didn't - is that a problem?)

>Also some of these games are definitely not arcade games, but adventures, platformers etc.

emuviews=Emulation Views. Whether the emulation involved fits your definition of 'arcade games' is not important.

Subject: Heh, no more Hot Rods
From:
Hey guys, I'd love to give out Hot Rods to people that work for me, but I think this was a one time deal. If I need something as big as this in the future, don't worry, I'll post about it. :)
