I'm Back!!!!! - April 01,2002 by JoseQ
Well dudes, I think it's time. I've been doing a lot of work since I left, and I finally got it to a point where I can have some spare time again, and thus dedicate some of that to one of my favorites hobbies of all times, EmuViews. As all of you know, back in July, I was so busy with managing SpeedHost.Com, a full-time job and real-life that I was having a hard time keeping up with posting news on a daily basis, gathering rumors for the Rumor Mill every week and still have a life. There was no question in my mind that I had to stop doing the website, or otherwise I would have probably experienced what is known as expontaneous combustion; not a good thing in humans.
Anyhow, in October, a few personal problems popped up, and SpeedHost.Com had gotten to a decent size, so I resigned from my dayjob to fully dedicate to SpeedHost. Well, it's been a few months, I have finally caught up with the work load, and can once again spend time playing games, and posting news.
I know many of you are thinking: "But why now? after all this time..." Well, it was the perfect time to post an article like this. After all, it's April Fools and I didn't have much to do at midnight. Anyhow, while most of this article is true (everything except the comeback part), I did want to mention that I do have plans for the 'Views this year. So keep checking back, as within a few months, you'll be able to see news here once again. I'll see you then!

Welcome back to JoseQ!
And of course to his site...EMUVIEWS!!
The most confortable place for emulation and roms at the first place!
Concerning emulation, it was maybe the 2nd or 3nd during a moment!
Now it's emuchina.net, arcadeathome, emulatronia.com, romdepot but let's guess JoseQ is going to make a fabulous come back!!

When you have a 24-hour station dedicated to "Tech", you get a little desperate for material sometimes.

From: b081030.adsl.hansenet.de
Im really looking forward seeing u pick up the work for this project again.

i think I allways thought off, was how about a compatition from time to time. In games like Pacman etc. wheree everybody can participate in? I think that would really be nice... having an emuviews highscorelist added to in the roms section. or even as its own section. because that what it was all about in the arcades -highscores and comatition.

how do u feel about this?

There is a MAME competition that happens every year. I'm not sure if it still does, but it used to while I was active.

About the highscores, I thought about it a lot, but with the cheats and all that, it's kind of hard to keep a straight list. I might do it with help from moderators if enough people volunteer.

I will mention it when I start the site again.

If your site is going to have downloadable roms, then it will attract lots more emu fans, seeing as many rom sites have closed. So thats a great thing!
I just hope that you wont have to close the roms down for the same reason
web-sites like mame.dk did.

I cant wait till the news is back again!

oh and anyone really interested in computer games, head on over the www.gamefaqs.com and vote in the big character tourney, where you have to vote for your favourite, its cool.

Its Greate news to see youre coming back. Like for so many other peapole, this has always been one of my favorit places to go.

since you are planing to change some stuff I have a question thou... could it be possible to get a search engine for old news ... or atleast an easier way to look at older news.

Cuse right now the only way that i know of to find older news here, is to press the link "previous day" .... And if u want to find something old like when the "rail chase" was emulated on final burn, it takes some time to find it...

ether way, nice to have you back!

Good idea, however, that was on my list even back when I was actively running it and I never got around doing it.

Unfortunately, the news system I created wasn't designed with that in mind, so tweaking it for that would be a major task.

Depending on how much time I have once I become active again, I might be able to do that. I do have the design for it, but I don't foresee the time for implementing it.

It will look the same for the most part. But I'd like to revamp it with some highlights here and there, just to make it look more 'snazzy' and to make room for the other sister sites that will co-exist. =)

Here I am, surfing the net and this little voice tells me "oi mate, head over to Emuviews.com and see if anything have changed" I remember asking my voice why the #$%# he only told me about this in July, but heck, I'm here now and I like what I see. Could the mystical, mysterious and two other big words starting with a m be coming back after all these days of mindless surfing. (This was about the only site I ever visited.) Can I finally go on the net again with another reason purely then checking my emails ? I'll be checking this place....

I haven't really thought about it all that much. I know I want to get a website (or maybe a couple) going again and be a webmaster since I enjoyed it so much and now I have seem to find myself with too much spare time, so I might as well put it to good use...

For the next couple of weeks or so, I still have a lot of stuff to iron out, but as soon as that's up and running, then I'll give EmuViews some thinking. Probably revamping the look a little bit, rebuilding the ROM database starting almost from scratch and putting some oldies available for everyone.

Not sure about everything, since I must get back into the scene, before I can become a webmaster again. There's a lot of work to be done before I start doing news again, but once I catch up, make all the necessary connections, and make sure my spy birds rise again like the phoenix. =)

Well, the scene has changed a little since you've left.

Some things have changed (Pinball Emulators, hundreds upon thousands of pop-up and pop-under ads on sites - it's interesting that you've stayed away from that trend, even though this site hasn't been updated in a year).

Some things haven't (annoying people clogging bulletin boards 'cuz they're begging for ROMS, MAME updates that include obscure games featuring nude Sailor Moon knock offs - yuck).

Once you get back into it, you'll forget that you've ever stopped it.

I think it will be more like two months or so at the minimum since I most likely will be busy for the next couple of months and there's also a couple of things I want to do for the website(s) before I start going at it again.

So it'll be a while. I just thought since it looks like it will be alive again in the near future, I'd start re-activating stuff left and right.

For those wondering about the ROMs, I doubt I can get that done anytime soon since it involves basically recreating the database. The website has moved servers once or twice since I closed it, and the FTP with the ROMs didn't move with it, so it's not a switch I could flip back on. I never had a good MAME ROM collection at home, so it's not something I could upload either.

I still have many of my connections though, so re-creating something decent shouldn't take that much work. I just can't devote that much time to that for now...

Times should begin being interesting again in the fall. Just be patient. =P
