  1. I was thinking the other day of how much emulation is popular in other tech areas such as music production. There are so many famous hardware synthesizers that are emulated in software or plugin form for the most powerful DAWs (digital audio workstations as FL Studio, Logic, Ableton, etc.). How many of you guys produce music too? What would you think if 1Emulation started covering music production software that does the very thing I described?

  2. Sorry for the ridiculous delay. I haven't had much time to dedicate to this site. Regardless, we have some new features built in now (you'll notice a new ranking system) as part of some upgrades. I'll check with Invision to see if there's a dark theme option. I can't see why they wouldn't have it built in at this point, especially since both Windows/Mac have built in dark modes now.

    Is it possible to return with the dark theme to the forum or at least provide it as optional? The white theme is really eye-hurting when navigating the forum in low light room or at night. 😕

    Hi Mer-curious. Thanks for the feedback. We are definitely going to make some revisions to the design, as well as perhaps provide a darker theme.

    Will keep you all updated.

    I don't mind either way what design the site is I would just like to see Arcade emulators posted & a how to use as there isn't a site I know of that does that. Recent emulators is posted so why not all arcade emulators & a how to that goes along with it too. I know a lot of hard work has gone into making ARCADE emulator so why not the site to, a how to use arcade emulators would be great as I would love to learn more about others & if I could help anyone I will. I'm still learning about ARCADE & I can update my roms & a few other things but I stll can't compile my own ARCADE build, i'm a person that learns from watching others first but I haven't found an up to date video on what I need tools wise then a step by step video on compiling ARCADE. Please someone make an up to date video as I wanna learn then I would help others. Thank You

    Hi Agard. These are all great suggestions. Would you be interested in contributing these suggestions to 1emulation? If so, please feel free to message me. Since we've started the site, our staffing has changed considerably in order to implement some of these ideas you've mentioned.

  5. Hey everybody. Thanks for the feedback. I'll be looking for a new dark theme for everyone to be able to choose from in the coming week. Unfortunately I can't bring back the old theme due to an incompatibility issue.

  6. Huge news in the emulation and XBOX 360 scene in the last 24 hours! The Goldeneye 007 XBLA Arcade version has been leaked. Due to various licensing issues, the remastered XBOX 360 version of the original Goldeneye 007 for Nintendo 64 was locked away for 13 years. People who have played this version of the game have indicated that it appears near completion at 85-90%. Currently people are playing the game on Xlink using an RGH or JTAG'd XBOX 360 as well.

    ** The game is fully playable on the Xenia 360 emulator and has been tested to work "out of the box" with a Sony PS4 controller (plugged in via USB with no keymapping required). This is super cool for anyone who loved this game back in the day. **

    Our favorite YouTube'er, MVG, has released an amazing video describing the leak below:

    You can also watch people playing Goldeneye 007 XBLA right now (multiplayer using xlink!) on YouTube live below:


  7. I realized I'm having a hard time keeping up with the emulation scene these days. I was wondering if anyone has been keeping track in the last year or two and can provide an update?

    So far I'm aware of emulators now that are working quite well for the latest Nintendo consoles, as well as PS3, PSP, XBOX, not sure about XBOX 360, and not sure about Vita. And I'm probably missing a bunch of other stuff. It's also beautiful to see that there hasn't been any lost interest in the emulation scene at all. In fact, it seems to be only increasing with every new generation of consoles.

    Anyway, if anyone can fill me in, I'm all ears.

    Whoa a new look. I always welcome changes and it looks nice and fresh. 👍

    Nice to see you, Superman! How's life?

    I'm kinda partial to old spice out of habit, but this feels fresh and improved readability.

    I agree! How have you been Rikki? How is the rest of the emulation message board fam doing (e.g., ngemu)?

  9. Hey ya'll. I kind of wish our YouTube channel was alive right now 😅!
    Lately, I've become a big fan of Modern Vintage Gamer. Have any of you watched his stuff? Apparently he coded quite a few emulators that you likely have already used. He now has half a million subscribers! He's a great historian not only for general gaming and hacking, but the emulation scene as well. Anyone have any favorite youtube channels you'd like to share?

    toilet paper or.. someone else t-shirt 😁


    Now serious. That one woman was in hospital and had contact with at least 50 people in hospital. Now hospital is separated from outside world. Many of those people probably left hospital and didn't know that woman was positive with covid19. All hospitals employes that are at home at orderer to stay at home on force. One of nurses is actually living very close to my home.


    Besides weather is rather bad here in Poland - strong wind, yesterday was snowing. Not the best conditions to stay healthy. Right now from time to time I see only people with dogs.

    Hahaha, so tp or t-shirts! 😂

    Right now it seems being a hospital worker is by far the scariest job to have in the world!

    I guess people in Poland won't have to worry about trying to socially isolate due to the weather keeping you guys in.

    If only someone with a sense of responsibility was president...


    As it is, America will soon be flooded with the dead bodies of the poor.


    Whatever happened to the saying "The buck stops here" ? For Trump, it stops somewhere else - anywhere else - but never with him.


    Well, how Trump deals with this situation will inform if he gets elected again or not. I think that maybe him not taking responsibility actually makes his base like him more (which you would never think with presidents before him). It seems that everything Trump does appears ironic at first, but only ends up strengthening his base. I think how he deals with people who lose their jobs from this will be pivotal.

    Now, for the 2nd theory. This one is rather complex - and it's not over. Again, I don't really believe it - but who knows? Perhaps there's an element of truth in there somewhere.


    As we all know (or are told), this virus made the transition to humans in Wuhan province, somewhere in China. A doctor raised the alarm and was told to keep quiet.


    I contend that China intended this virus to be spread around the world, and the doctor was supposed to say nothing. A few weeks later he was conveniently found dead.


    Finally, after hiding the facts for 7 weeks, allowing the virus to spread in the community and tourists, China finally took action.


    The latest we hear is that China has it "under control". If this is true, then soon the world will have a healthy China, while the rest are falling down sick, with hospitals overrun, dead piling up, etc etc. Did China already have an antidote? How did they control it so quickly?

    The world's workers will increasingly turn to working from home, placing an increased reliance upon the internet and telecommunications in general.

    Wouldn't this be a convenient time for a certain nation to attack another nation's internet? Or even for a certain nation to start a war, while everybody else is sick?

    Or, at the very least, for the world's economies to crash and leave themselves open to control from a nation that has "3rd world" economic status but is in fact the world's most powerful.

    Think about it.

    Also, think about why their state-controlled company is so aggressive in getting a foothold in other country's telecommunications, even suing countries that have locked them out.


    Why are they so desperate?

    This is definitely an interesting theory! I do sometimes wonder if the reports in China are true or not, and if they actually have stopped new infections? It's almost hard to believe considering how much the rest of the world is just beginning to deal with this, but then again I feel most of the world didn't take it seriously. I am, however, doubtful that China intended for the virus to be spread. I am inclined to believe that this was an accident and that it did start in a "wet market," as researchers have pointed out to wet markets in the past as a possible origin point to new viruses. I really recommend watching this interview (the first 20 minutes are the most informative):

    Hehehe, I've not been in stores for 2 days now but still when I've been in sotres I have not  seen to many people . Toilet paper run out initially quickly but has been restocked fast. There was was shortage for bread for a short time. Right now I have at least one confirmed sick in my city and that might change a lot. Looking from my windows at city it look like deserted, only rarely peoples with dogs so people are probably scared and finally sitting at home. Shops were closed in sunday in my country but that's normal. Tomorrow we will see how much situation has changed my city.

    Wow, that's insane! Can't believe your city is deserted with only 1 confirmed sick. That's paranoia at its finest.

    But anyway, you didn't answer my question! What about the bidets? Do you guys prefer the water washing or the toilet paper? :D

    I currently have 2 theories that contradict each other, so I'll put the other one into another post.

    The basis of a good conspiracy theory is to gather up "facts", as presented by the media, and weave them together with a bit of logical thinking, to produce an outcome. It all must be entirely logical. In my case, I don't even believe these theories - but they make sense. Now, for the first theory, and this one is pretty easy to shoot down.


    Ponder this question. Do you PERSONALLY know anyone with this virus? It mustn't be what you heard in the media, or some rumour from your friend's sister's boyfriend - it must be someone you personally know.

    If the answer is YES, then the theory ends here and now. Otherwise, let's continue on. Does this virus pandemic even exist? Or is it some kind of social experiments by governments, to find out what would happen in a real emergency? If so, one can just imagine the amount of lawsuits when it's declared over.

    That's a good point. I don't know anyone personally, but I do feel it would be hard to fake at this point as so many celebrities and doctors are also coming out and saying they have it. It would definitely be insane if we all found out it was fake... can't imagine what that would do to people's minds. There would be zero trust left in the world. 😂

    Our state is going on lockdown later today at 5:00 PM.  Stores are either closed now or closing later today and the grocery stores have reduced the hours they are going to be open.


    It is very quiet this morning with little to no traffic from people going to work.


    That's the nice thing about this virus. Work from home, less driving, more time to think, or drive yourself crazy! 🤣

    Rather does not want to write about. In Poland right now is silent - people in my city does not hoarding shops, we still have toilet paper, rice etc. At least yesterday it was true.


    Personally I made some shopping just to not need go out every day.

    Curious, do people in Poland use bidets more than toilet paper? If I had to make a guess, toilet paper is probably only prevalent in countries where it's the common method to clean the butt.

    Been panic buying of toilet paper for weeks. Pretty much all sport cancelled or played to empty stands. Stockmarket crashed 30%, worst ever.

    Recently, the panic buying of everything people can get their hands on. The world has gone crazy.

    America doesn't seem to be taking it seriously. There's been less testing there overall than South Korea does in a single day. This, I've heard, is because of America's corrupted health care system which only exists for the rich. The poor can't afford either the testing or the hospital treatment.

    I have come up with certain conspiracy theories, we'll see soon enough if they are more than theories.


    The panic buying is something I haven't quite understood. This is a virus -- not a fire, earthquake, or actual war. One can go to the grocery store and wear a mask if they are too paranoid.

    I also agree and it doesn't seem like America is taking it seriously. They currently have the highest growth rate of people getting infected, but this also may have to do with increased testing.

    What are the conspiracy theories?
