The ROMs themselves are still hosted on the server and can be retrieved by making a proper request to the server with the appropriate media ID.
It can be done very easily - find the proper media ID of the ROM you desire (Ctrl-F 'var allMedia = [{"ID"' then copy the numerical value) on the "removed" game's page, edit a working page's source via inspect element so the download button points to the desired media ID, click download, done.
Conclusion: it's a nothingburger.

The iNES header format was an unofficial format for distributing NES ROMs, mostly for compatibility with the iNES emulator. An official, clean dump of the ROM would have no reason to use it, and yet it's the format used by all NES ROMs ripped from the Virtual Console.
This fact proves that Nintendo developed their official NES emulator for compatibility with ROM files using an unofficial format. Which they'd have no reason for doing unless downloading unofficial ROM dumps.

I've seen people claiming
>oh, well Nintendo hired the guy that developed the format!

Kawase didn't contribute to the iNES emulator until version 0.7, and even then it was exclusively sound support. The iNES header format is not his, and he did nothing relating to its development.
That said, his involvement with the emulator only strengthens the assertion that he was dealing with unofficial ROM dumps.

It certainly needs *A* header. Not necessarily one developed by a third party for compatibility with an unofficial emulator.

Americans learn a second language in school as a requirement to graduate from high school, but we lose it almost immediately due to lack of practice. Even when students travel to other countries to practice whichever foreign language they've been studying for 2-3 years or more, they all come back with the same story: "I thought I'd get a lot of practice on my trip but everyone spoke to us in English so I never got to practice anything."

It will always be preferable to have a strong grasp of a single, universal language. I can speak to any number of people across the globe and be understood without fail. And should a miscommunication arise, it will always be the fault of the other party because my language is the expectation.
Meanwhile, your poor understanding of that language ensures that you'll only be able to reliably communicate with the relatively small number of people who speak [your obsolete language here].

British English has actually changed a lot more than American English in the last 200 years. Most of the differences in American English that Brits complain about us changing were things that existed in British English at the time America was colonized and which changed in Britain but not America.
Back when Britain colonized America...
>British English had hard R pronunciation. (developed into non-rhotic dialect in Britain but not America, not sure why)
>The place you went to see plays was spelled "theater." (changed later to be more French because it was fashionable)
>The game they played by kicking a ball down a field was called soccer. (changed later because association football became the most popular football game in Britain)
>-ize was the most common spelling for the suffix which makes nouns into verbs. (standardized to -ise in Britain, standardized to -ize in America)
I could go on, but you get the point. It's British English that's changed, almost everything you complain about us doing improperly was the original way to do it that you changed out from underneath us and then blamed us for afterward.

Torrenting 128Mb files is pointless. You'd spend more time opening the client than the download would take, and you open yourself up to a higher risk of detection (VPN or otherwise).

Not him but why?
I already have like 400 games over 8 or 9 different consoles that I could happily replay at least once a year.
A lot of them are hard or long so it'll take me forever to beat them all and that's not to mention that there's more stuff to do than just games as well as responsibilities like having to wageslave so I can afford food.
I could play shmup #763 or I could go back to playing Garegga or Darius Gaiden and try to get a better score probably having more fun with them than whatever random game I would pick instead.

>> No.10934740

Why not? This way I never have to worry about rom availability online. If I hear about a game and decide to check it out I can just load it up. When full romsets for every console I care about total dozens of gigabytes and my hard drive can hold THOUSANDS of gigabytes I see no reason to make myself beholden to external sources that could vanish overnight.

Because copyright trolls monitor torrent connections (which are completely public) and send notices to your ISP, they pay jeets to do this.
Some countries like the US will just send a notice and ask you to stop the first 3 times, other countries like Germany have automated fines for copyright infringements which are expensive.

4chan plays a relatively small role but it's widely known that vidya-focused e-celebs lurk this site for content. Some don't even bother hiding that and will directly use screencaps of 4chan posts in their videos. Reddit plays a much larger role regarding getting the info out to normalfags, they have public subreddits with names like "roms" and "piracy" that have large numbers of members openly discussing these websites, and they appear quite readily with basic internet searches. Either way, eventually this all runs downstream to twitter. Spoonfeeding culture needs to end, at least when it comes to piracy. Retards on reddit will literally never learn from this and jewtubers will do anything for clicks. I have marginally higher hopes for 4chan.

Those are (non-)Good[system] based. They grab every known rom, including bad dumps, translations, hacks, etc. and dump it in. If you want it, go ahead, but they are excessive and basically a step above a full romset that at most tends to include every regional release and some unlicensed. Also that torent combines both Game Boy and Game Boy Color, but that's is about accurate if you grab both, they aren't entirely compatible so my autistic ass treats them seperately. The NES set however very bloated.

If clicking the archive file on the Internet Archive doesn't start a download, try right click > save as. A no intro set for GB from the past few years is 196MB, the Colour set is 728MB. One of the modern NES sets is 395MB.

I should make a new website that automatically lets you generate your own romsets based on search criteria and filters, and auto downloads them one by one from archive.org. Want all the English Gameboy games? Click a few boxes and drop-downs. How about every Konami game before 2003? Same thing. What about the top 500 Gameboy games? You get the idea. It has to be possible to pull all the data for all the retro games and sort it to allow for categorical filtered browsing and bulk downloading like that so why has no one made it yet? Or am I not looking hard enough?

Meds. Now.

>> No.10938121

>why has no one made it yet?
I can think of a few reasons.
First off, where are you pulling the criteria/filter data from? Neither wikipedia nor mobygames has 100% complete lists for any console, much less full data for every single game. Even then, no one can agree on what genre's many games are. One site will have a game listed as being an Action/Adventure, another will call it an Action/RPG. Who's standard do you use? No matter which one you go with, you will find inconsistencies and oddities, and many absences.
Second, your website will be 100% dependent on multiple third party API's, including interfacing with the internet archive, and whatever sources you have for data for the games. Every time one of them updates, your website will break until you find the change and update on your end. You know how updates usually break game mods and cheats, and the creators have to rush to update their mod/cheat to work on the latest patch? Same thing. You can't just make it, you have to constantly maintain it.
Third, with internet archive constantly nuking uploads of roms, you'll need to constantly be on the hunt for re-uploads and constantly update the site with the new links.
Fourth, sooner or later, internet archive will notice you leeching off of them, and will easily shut down your entire operation by blocking your website from connecting to them. Or much like image hosting sites used to, block download access unless the user is visiting the website directly. There's plenty of easy ways for them to completely and totally kill off your site.

I thought about creating a filtered randomizer for the old Gauntlet we used to have, but I hit the genre issue and gave up. Only answer I found was to personally label every game for genre by my own decision, and I didn't feel it was worth the result.
