Happy 19th Birthday EmuParadise!
On this day 19 years ago I started EmuParadise. It's been quite a journey so far with lots of ups and downs and changes. Last year we removed access to most of our content. This left many people quite sad and it seems like there is a gap in the emulation scene that still exists. We don't have any update on the situation at the moment but what I can say is that we are working on all of these problems and perhaps we will find a solution one day.
For now, I would just like to take this moment to thank you all for your support over the years. Your kind words and encouragement mean a lot to me and the rest of the team here at EmuParadise. Our forums and discord are still thriving. Our facebook page and group still see a lot of activity. You can always find us through any of these channels.
For now, since it's been EP tradition to have a giveaway on our birthday we're going to do one today, just a small one, for old times sake. We're giving away an 8Bitdo SN30 Pro Controller, one of the best retro video game controllers on the market.
How to enter to win:
All you have to do is retweet and reply to this tweet or like and post a comment on this facebook post telling us what you miss about EmuParadise the most or what you would like to see us do in the future. So get creative!
We chose Pako Maruyama from Argentina as the winner. He's going to get his controller very soon! Thanks to everyone who entered our giveaway :)
Every person is allowed a maximum of two entries (one on facebook and one on twitter) and you must enter by 11:59PM UTC on 30th March. We'll announce the winner on 31st March at some point of time. The giveaway is open worldwide.
So good luck! :)
EmuParadise Official Net64+ Server
There was a new release of Net64+ just a few weeks ago. This is basically Super Mario 64 Online where you can play multiplayer against other folks. It has a lot of new content and even several new playable characters.
We now run a Net64+ server where you can get together and play against each other. Details of the new Net64+ server and all our other game servers can be found at our game servers page.
If you want to match up with each other, join #netplay on the EmuParadise Discord.
Win a PS4 Pro God of War Bundle
We're having a birthday sweepstakes! EmuParadise turns 18 today, March 27th 2018. Since this is our 18th birthday we thought we should make our prizes ahem... a little more mature.
We received over 40,000 entries for this competition. Thank you for participating and making it so much fun! We've conducted a random draw and selected the winners. So without further ado, here they are:
Grand Prize - PS4 Pro 1TB God of War Bundle - szunyzoli99
2nd Prize - 18 months of EP Premium - MrSmart
3rd Prize - 12 months of EP Premium - VenomRush1997
We'll be in touch with the winners shortly to get their details and send them their prizes. Thanks again for making this so much fun and supporting EmuParadise. We couldn't have made it for 18 years without you.
As always with EmuParadise we are following our tradition of having the competition open to our users WORLDWIDE. We will ship the PS4 Pro Bundle to you anywhere in the world, so everyone is welcome to enter!
How to enter
There are two steps to a valid entry.
Submit at least one description, screenshot, or video to a game page.
Make a post on social media about your entry. You need to either post publicly to your Facebook profile OR tweet about the competition. We have some useful links below that you can use to share to facebook or tweet out your entry. In general, your post should be public (so that we can see it), it should include a link to this page, and it should mention the prizes.
You *must* complete Step 2 for your entry to be valid. Please note, that you ONLY need to do Step 2 once. So, if you submit 50 screenshots, you only need to make a single social media post for all your entries to be valid. But we will check for Step 2, so make sure you do it right!
For each category of submission you get a different number of entries:
Think of each entry as a lottery ticket. Every entry you get increases your chances of winning. So if we get 200 total entries but you have 50 of them then you have a 25% chance of winning! Makes sense? Great!
So once you've submitted some media, please tweet about it or post to your facebook timeline. Remember to mark your facebook post as public.
That's all, we like to keep it simple. If you have any questions, please ask in the comments. Oh and most importantly, HAPPY 18th BIRTHDAY EMUPARADISE :)
Thank you all for supporting us and our community for so many years. It is a matter of great pride to run this site for so many years and we could not have done it without you.
Introducing our new emulators section!
This has been in the works for a long time and finally, I'm very happy to introduce our brand new emulators section. We always had the goal of presenting emulators with all their different versions and add-ons on the site. But the way our emulators section was organised didn't help towards this. So we took into account what would help you the most in your journey to emulate specific games and redid our entire emulator section.
Every emulator is now unified under a single page. All version numbers are available on the same page with the latest one being presented up front. Furthermore, the emulator pages include helpful descriptions, a link to the project homepage, screenshots, videos and more. In some cases there are links to BIOS files that are often necessary, add-ons and plugins, etc.
Going forward, this will make it easier for us to add new emulators, recommend the best ones for certain cases, and more. To see all this, and more, head to our emulators section.
Games now have videos available
We've just launched some great new functionality for our game information pages. Now, you can submit game videos for your favourite video game titles. What's more, you'll earn 10 EP Points for each submission which can then be redeemed for various goodies.
All you need to do is login with your EPForums account and then hit the Add Video button on any game information page. We accept video URLs from Youtube.
Once you've submitted your video, we'll approve it within 24-48 hours and you'll get 10 EP Points for it. Also, if you notice anything out of order, please hit the report button so that we can review any incorrect submission that might have gone through our moderation system.
We accept trailers, short gameplay videos, short reviews, and more. Looking forward to watching all your submissions!
