Complete Arcade ROM Sets
Posted by MasJ @ Thu, 27 May 2010 | Message Boards

One of our visitors, RetroScott, emailed me today asking whether we had plans to put up sets for NeoGeo, CPS1, & CPS2 ROMs. Well, to be honest, I hadn't noticed that we didn't have sets for these already. So here we go! I've added 3 new sets today, the following files are now available:

Capcom Play System 1 - CPS1 Set (164M)
Capcom Play System 2 - CPS2 Set (866M)
NeoGeo ROMs Set ( 4x1000MB ) - (3.9GB)

You can find all these sets at our Complete ROM Sets Section. Incase you didn't know, we carry TONS of ROM Sets in this section ranging from arcade to console to handheld systems. You can grab entire sets in one file and dump them on your iPhone or other devices to have an entire library at hand. Definitely a pretty nifty section worth checking out! So grab whatever you like, and tell your friends too! =)





Computer Gaming World 001 - 100 & Specials
Posted by MasJ @ Tue, 25 May 2010 | Message Boards

I've just added Computer Gaming World Issues 001 - 100 to our Video Game Magazine Scans Section. That's a total of over 2.7GBs worth of magazine scans. Pretty awesome, eh! Also, there are two specials which are the 1987 Computer Game Forum Magazines that came out during the off-months of CGW. Some pretty great moments of gaming history are captured in these magazines so they're definitely worth checking out.

Thanks go out to superbus for uploading these issues in PDF format to our server. You can definitely spend a few weeks pouring through the ages of gaming with these Magazines. Some more information on CGW [from wikipedia.org]:

Computer Gaming World (CGW) was a magazine founded in 1981 by Russell Sipe as a bimonthly publication. Early issues were typically 40-50 pages in length, written in a newsletter style, including submissions by game designers such as Joel Billings (SSI), Dan(i) Bunten (Ozark Software), and Chris Crawford. As well, early covers were not always directly related to the magazine's contents, but rather featured work by artist Tim Finkas. In 1986, CGW increased its publication cycle to 9 times a year, and the editorial staff included well-known writers such as Scorpia, Charles Ardai, and M. Evan Brooks.

In late 1987, CGW introduced a quarterly newlsetter called Computer Game Forum (CGF), which was published during the off-months of CGW. The focus of the newsletter was game design, game hints and scenarios, and game development. The newsletter never really took off and only two issues were published (Fall 1987 and Winter 1987) before it was cancelled. Many of the columns which debuted in CGF, such as Scorpion's Tale and The Rumor Bag, were incorporated into CGW, which went monthly in 1988.

The magazine went through significant expansion starting in 1991, with growing page counts reaching 196 pages by its 100th issue, in November 1992. During that same year, Johnny Wilson became Editor-In-Chief, although Russell Sipe remained as Publisher. In 1993, Sipe sold the magazine to Ziff Davis.


Well, without further ado, head to our Video Game Magazine Scans section and start downloading! : )





Emulator Updates
Posted by Niphoet @ Mon, 24 May 2010 | Message Boards

Hi everyone. I'm sorry to be a few days late on this update, but here goes:

PC Engine/TurboGrafx 16: Ootake has been updated to version 2.42 (Win).

Amiga: WinUAE has been updated to version 2.2.0 beta 4 (Win).

Sinclair ZX80/ZX81: sz81 has been updated to version 2.1.6.1-3 (Win/Others).

MAME: MAME has been updated to version 0.138 (Win/Source). I know that when MAME is updated, a few dozen front-ends and variants are released. To maintain my remaining sanity, I'm only including the official release. Please use the new emulator submission page to fill in those that I've missed.

Nintendo DS: DeSmuME has been updated to version 0.9.6 (Win/Mac/Source).


Nintendo Virtual Boy: vbjin has been updated to version svn61 (Win).


I want to say thanks to MasJ for the huge overhaul of the Emulator Section. I will soon upload everything in my posts (if no one beats me to it). Niphoet out.





Nintendo DS #4930
Posted by MasJ @ Sun, 23 May 2010 | Message Boards

It's been slow with Nintendo DS updates lately. What with the new Super Mario Galaxy coming out and everyone going nuts about it I guess they didn't want to release new DS games around the same time =P. Anyway, here's what we have today:

4928_-_monster_racers_(u)(xenophobia).rar
4929_-_jam_with_the_band_(e)(m5)(xms).rar
4930_-_blue_dragon_awakened_shadow_(u)(bahamut).rar

Just three new titles for you to try out. More to come soon! Get these at our Nintendo DS New Releases Section.





New Emulators Section!
Posted by MasJ @ Sat, 22 May 2010 | Message Boards

Well, this is definitely overdue! I've finally written a brand new emulators section for emuparadise. This incorporates a number of cool new features that have been in development for a while. Here's what we have for you:

- Emulators for almost every system that we have ROMs for at Emuparadise.
- Rate & Recommend emulators by writing descriptions, guides, etc.
- Submit emulators by uploading them to the site.
- Moderate other users submissions by telling us whether uploads are good or not.
- Vote for which emulator works for which game. (this system was already in place..)
- Link to the emulator author's homepage.
- And much more..

As you can see this is slated to improve our website as an emulation resource and make emuparadise a one-stop shop for ALL your emulation needs, be it roms or emulators. You can check out the BRAND NEW emulators section by clicking the Emulators Section link on the left navigation menu or by clicking here.

Also, you can submit emulators to the website by hitting up this page. User upload moderation works in this way. You upload a file. We ask users to rate whether the file is any good or not. After a certain number "Good" votes the file automatically gets flagged as good. After a certain number of "Bad" votes, the file gets taken off. Pretty simple huh! Do please help moderate user uploads by voting on whether submissions are of good quality or not. Well, what're you waiting for ? Help us enrich our Emulators Section.

Oh, and if you need more categories for Platforms to upload for (emulators that run on consoles, emulators for handhelds..) just let me know and I'll be happy to add in the categories for you!

Also, it's important to note here that while we have all the MAME 0.138 roms we also have a lot of extra titles listed under our MAME ROMs Section. This is because we started at 0.129 and kept adding the newer titles, but with every release there are titles that become unsupported. We don't remove these as it's still possible to play these on some versions of MAME. This is the reason why we have more games than 0.138 supports. But who's complaining ?

Go get yourself some MAME ROMs.

Update: I've also updated our Complete ROM Sets Section with the full MAME set split into 13 files [2.0GB each..]. You'll find the following files available there:

MAME 0.138 ROMS Part 01
MAME 0.138 ROMS Part 02
MAME 0.138 ROMS Part 03
MAME 0.138 ROMS Part 04

Nintendo DS #4927
Posted by MasJ @ Sun, 16 May 2010 | Message Boards

Well, we've got some more Nintendo DS titles for you. Here's what we have today:

4923_-_kamen_rider_dragon_knight_(u)(xenophobia).rar
4924_-_bakugan_battle_trainer_(e)(bahamut).rar
4925_-_trick_ds_ban_kakushigami_no_sumu_yakata_(j)(bahamut).rar
4926_-_peppa_pig_fun_and_games_(e)(bahamut).rar
4927_-_easy_learning_discover_our_world_(e)(dsperate).rar

Someone asked when we'll fix the release numbers. Well, there isn't any proper numbering dat available yet. Advanscene's dats are only upto #4851 so far and those are the dats that we follow. All the other sites on the internet with alternate numbers are pretty arbitrary as well. We're waiting until advanscene updates it's dats so that we can rename the files. Until then you'll just have to follow these release numbers : )

Also, do check out Niphoet's emulator updates every week (the post below this one..) to get the latest emulators for yourself! We'll soon have a system to update emulators site-wide too!

For now, grab the latest Nintendo DS releases at our New Releases Section.





Emulator Updates
Posted by Niphoet @ Fri, 14 May 2010 | Message Boards

It seems to have been a pretty slow week for emulator updates, but here they are:

PC Engine/TurboGrafx 16: Ootake (English translation) has been updated to version 2.41 (Win).

Sega Dreamcast: nullDC has been updated to version 1.0.4 r22 (Win).

Sega NAOMI: nullDC NAOMI has been updated to version 1.0.4 r22 (Win). This is NOT the same as the above emulator.

ZX Spectrum: ZX Spectrum 4 has been updated to version 1.0.3784 built 26497 (Win).

DOSBox has been updated to version 0.74 (Win/Linux/Mac/Others). DOSBox, undoubtedly the best DOS emulator available, has finally recived an update after a year. I've used this for years and have never personally had any compatibility issues, but they just keep on improving it. Check it out and see what you think.

Again, I welcome comments and suggestions, so feel free. Niphoet out.

Emulator Updates
Posted by Niphoet @ Fri, 07 May 2010 | Message Boards

As MasJ menioned a few days ago, I'm going to be providing weekly updates on emulators. I will only be posting emulators for ROMs/Games that are hosted on EP. I'll make some personal recommendations in my posts, so please feel free to do the same in the comments. If I miss any new/updated emulators, please leave me a message in the comments and I'll make sure to include them in the next update.

Soon we will be updating the emulator files hosted on the site, but for now I will link to the developer's website. This will give people a chance to download the emulators for their preferred OS/platform, as well as read more details. Now for the emulators:

NES: MacFCEU has been updated to version 0.6.3 (Mac).

Amiga: WinUAE has been updated to version 2.1.0 (Win).

PC Engine/TurboGrafx 16: Ootake (English translation) has been updated to version 2.3.9 (Win).

Atari 2600: Stella has been updated to version 3.1.2 (Win/Mac/Linux/others).

Nintendo DS: iDeaS has been updated to version 1.0.3.5 (Win/Linux).

ZX Spectrum: Speccy has been updated to version 1.7 (Win/Linux/others). Sinclairean has been updated to B10 rev. B (Win/Linux).

ScummVM has been updated to version 1.1.1. This has to be one of my all-time favorites, recreating my all-time favorite genre of computer games: 1990's adventure games. Originally developed for the LucasArts adventure games (Manian Mansion, Monkey Island, etc.), they have since expanded the compatibility to dozens of other 1990's era games. Check out the site for a list of compatible games and some more info. (Oh, and before someone makes the wise comment, this isn't strictly an emulator, but multi-game engine recreation software.)

Another system I want to mention is the TI-99/4A (Wikipedia link). This was the first computer I ever used. Classic99 is a wonderful TI-99/4A emulator that has many of the popular games for the system integrated. Most are clones of other popular games from the day, but still fun to play around with.

In closing, there are 2 other emulators I want to mention. When I am looking for an emulator, I want one that emulates the original system as accurately as possible. bsnes (Super Nintendo) and Regen (Sega Megadrive/Genesis, Master System/Game Gear/SC-1000/SC-3000) are wonderful examples. They each require a little higher-end specs to run than some of their counterparts, but the end result it well worth it. Check them out and see what you think.

I'd like to thank MasJ for the chance to provide these updates and I welcome any feedback. Have a good weekend, everyone!





Nintendo DS #4910
Posted by MasJ @ Fri, 07 May 2010 | Message Boards

We've finally moved into the last leg of NDS releases before hitting the big 5000. This handheld sure has seen a lot of games. Inspite of all the insipid titles for it, this speaks volumes of Nintendo's success with the DS. Anyhow, here's what's been added:

4901_-_katei_kyoushi_hitman_reborn_ds_fate_of_heat_iii_(j)(bahamut).rar
4902_-_zaidan_houjin_nippon_kanji_nouryoku_kentei_kyoukai_kounin_kanken_ds_v1.4_(j)(bahamut).rar
4903_-_zaidan_houjin_nippon_kanji_nouryoku_kentei_kyoukai_kounin_kanken_ds_v1.5_(j)(bahamut).rar
4904_-_mangaka_debut_monogatari_ds_v1.1_(j)(bahamut).rar
4905_-_kawaii_koinu_ds_2_v1.2_(j)(bahamut).rar
4906_-_zero_kara_kantan_kankokugo_ds_(j)(bahamut).rar
4907_-_dekitayo_mama_mitsugo_no_kumasan_otokonoko_(j)(bahamut).rar
4908_-_diva_girls_diva_ballerina_(e)(dsperate).rar
4909_-_spellbound_2_(e)(dsperate).rar
4910_-_picross_3d_(u)(nukethis).rar

Mostly a bunch of Japanese titles but we have the US release of Picross 3D. I tried this title out and it's pretty cool. Nice little puzzles to bust your heads over while on a train ride somewhere or waiting for your dentist to look at your mouth :P. Grab 'em all at our Nintendo DS New Releases Section.

R4 (SDHC) Vs. R4i (SDHC & RTS) Review
Posted by MasJ @ Sun, 02 May 2010 | Message Boards

I've just reviewed these two flashcarts and compared them with each other. Kickgaming.com sent me some samples a few days ago and I've worked with these carts extensively to give my thoughts on them. The R4 and R4i are both excellent Nintendo DS flashcart options and you can read (and see!) about all that they can do in my R4 vs. R4i Review.





Video Game Sheet Music
Posted by MasJ @ Sat, 01 May 2010 | Message Boards

For all the budding musicians out there who've always wanted to play instrumentals to their favourite video game tunes, today I've started a brand new Sheet Music Section. You'll find that this section is full of good stuff in PDF and other formats. We've got music sheets for 20 games so far (mind you, these are only partial collections) and will be adding more through the next few weeks. So if you want to rock the next party with some uber cool live video game music, check out our Sheet Music Section.
