No More ROMs... for now... - March 04,2001 by JoseQ
Update (4/10): Read this. That's the main reason why I took the ROMs offline.
Some of you might have already noticed that there is no way to download ROMs from this site anymore. This is something that I have been contemplating for months now, and just made the decision today. From now on, for the first time since EmuViews was born, there will be no ROM downloads. I'm not sure how long it will stay like this, but for the time being, I would just like to experiment and see how everything goes for a while.
If you're wondering why I came to this decision, then I guess I should post a brief explanation as the reason is fairly simple. I just don't want to have any legal troubles, at all. Having the ROMs online risks everything that I've worked all my life to achieve, and I just don't think it's worth it. The ROMs area is probably the main reason why the sponsors for the site dropped support, and was also the part of the site with the lowest click-through rate (about 1 out of every 40,000 people would click on any one banner).
The ROMs section remains opened for informational/fun purposes. You can still see screenshots from the games, rate them, see their flyer, among other things. I will probably slowly but surely start posting public-domain ROMs, as they become available.
I'm sure you are all aware that there are good places to find most of the stuff I had available for download, so this shouldn't be the end of the world, or the site. The site will continue with news, Rumor Mills, InterViews, Game ReViews and other stuff. We'll see if the ROMs section ever returns to what it was... or... who knows...
