    Any Street Fighter or Fatal Fury fans here?

    I just love these "old" 2D Beat 'Em Up games, like Street Fighter, Fatal Fury, King of Fighters or Final Fight, Sengoku and so on. Shooting games like Metal Slug are nice too :) It's a nice change to all that 3D stuff... =) And online gaming is possible, too.

    if u're interested in discussion and news about emus and roms for consoles, arcade or what else, check Some Serious Emulation. A Friend of mine is going to build this forum more and more up. hf :)

    You get the emus from the creators pages, I list a few good running emus:

    Kawaks (best one imo)

    Final Burn Alpha (a lot of cheats are brought with it)

    Nebula (more graphics options, CPS and Neo Geo gfx-settings are indeependent of each other, but I'd advise you to ignore 2.0, even though it's the newest version, only heard bad things)

    Mame (well none, nice emu)

    Well, there are lots of pages where you can download roms... but since mame.dk was shut down, I recognized it's really not that easy to find specific roms. ;) But here you get almost everything you need for arcade gaming. Btw. the new forum of that page is hosted by my friends forum, so if you have any questions check http://www.emu-board.de.vu/. I watch its progress every day, be sure you get an answer :)

    oh and before snk is gone, they sign with 2 korean game companies, so there will be metal slug 4 and king of fighters 2002.

    do you know Sega's Street Fighter clone "Eternal Champion", released for Mega Drive/Genesis? I just loved that game hehe, but I've never found a rom of it nowadays...

    terry, doesn't matter if u play Quake or what else, Quakenet is a network for all kinds of games :) I just thought it would be easier to meet in an IRC channel ;) Hm, time could be a problem hehe, there are 4/5 hours between central europe and US eastcoast, hm? well, but I'm at Q-Net pretty late aswell, so if you get your ass there in the early evening, we could fight some rounds ;)
    we plan to get this channel international, till now there's only one guy from Finland, rest are Austrians/Swiss/Germans. So c'mon... :)

    all you guys join #streetfighter @ irc.quakenet.eu.org :D

    ftps are very rare, dunno... mame.dk was the only good source. But the rom-database still works, so u get the filenames and screenshots from there. Now you have different options.
    1. use a search engine.
    2. search in filesharing tools, espacially kazaa's got nice matches.
    3. look for rom trade channels in IRC networks such as #roms and #gaeb in EUIRC (irc.euirc.net:6667). Nearly everyone's got an fserve there. I guess on EFNet there must be some channels aswell.

    it's nice to remember my old days of quarter wasting at the arcades, thanks for the info on this locutos ;)

    @parimal: emulators act like the machine you're trying to play (arcade, nintendo, gameboy...) and roms are the cartridges or games that the machine used. You can download both emulators and roms as files now.

    Oh yeah, Golden Axe kicks fucking ass.

    For those looking for good download sites, heres a couple:
    www.edgeemu.com
    www.emuholic.com
    www.roms.co.za

    A REAL good NES emulator is rockNES, and a good Sega Genesis emulator is Gens. Edgeemu has TONS of roms, including hacks (someone made an Alkice Cooper Super Mario Bros.-ROCK!)

    As for Arcade games, MAME is the shit.
