New Sponsor (misc)

Dear visitors,

as PDRoms is a really expensive hobby, we have now support from – They offer plenty of interesting things and I already have ordered there myself.

This will be the one and only banner added to PDRoms, hope no one minds – waiting for donations is pretty hopeless, so we made this step once again.

Pulling the Shi… (misc)

Seems not only myself had a bad expirience recently…

Here are a few lines from brakken of

Wraggster, for my knowledge hasn’t been giving proper credit to emulation authors who post their work exclusively on other websites from some time – well at least in cases of the SkeenDev emulators. At the time barely any “scene” sites were covering the emulators due to the fact that there were only a handful of these sites who actually reported on GameCube. To make matters worse two of these “scene” sites who actually did cover GameCube homebrew, MaxConsole and PS2NFO were on bad terms with me and didn’t want to send my site traffic due to various reasons including loss of revenue.

These facts actually hurt the GameCube scene as the very talented authors works were not being spread around the scene. The end result of these other sites greedy tactics turned against them as TehSkeen quickly became a premier site for GameCube related developments and in the end these so called scene sites lost more traffic (income) then they would of if they would of covered the news themselves. Although, gained more popularity I was still not pleased as the homebrew authors weren’t getting they attention they deserved.

During this period in time Wraggster was one of the only English language “scene” sites posting constant updates about the emulators, but he was also not citing the source. This happened on numerous occasions. I however ignored for two reasons: (1) The emulators were getting coverage on a major site. (2) Lots of sites don’t link to respective sources so it’s pointless to post about them unless they are up to a lot of no good like MaxConsole and PS2NFO. Although, I ignored his disrespect for my site and the GameCube coders I did not forget…

While trying to use my account I got this:

You have been banned for the following reason: Nice, Very Nice newspost – Date the ban will be lifted: Never

First STEALING news and then beeing pissed, when someone moans about it in the public… I call this “Very Nice” too and pretty professional 😉 – It probably just proofs that what has been written here tells nothing, but the truth! 😉

More rant (misc)

As I am not too happy with Wraggsters explanation, here:

Update of sorts
Thanks to Kojote for the Idea, i posted this at 3am after an 21 hour day and forgot to credit the original idea, also by quickly linking to our GBA site people can browse and go to any coders site who makes the emu. A pm if offended would have been preferable.

At least he got his sitting-organ up and said, where the idea was comming from, but I am missing a link to the page where the idea was comming from. Anyway… giving (loveless half) credits after almost one full day… the train has already left the building, as his main page is filled up with other things and almost no one will read whatever he wrote.

By with 0 comments steals and modifies articles from PDRoms (misc)

Just few hours ago myself, Kojote/PDRoms, wrote an article about how to extend the iPhones gaming function using gpSPhone. Now Wraggster shameless steals this idea, without giving credits where due. The original article is here:

ZodTTDs excellent GBA Emulator for the Apple iPhone/itouch has opened the door to GBA Homebrew and more importantly in this newspost emulators of other systems

The following emulators for the Gameboy Advance should all be playable on the GBA Emulator for the iPhone, from arcade games to Atari2600 and even Snes games will work via these emulators.

Amstrad CPC
Black Tiger
Greenboy Attack
Punchout GBA RGBArcade

Atari 2600
BBC Micro

Game Gear
PCE Engine
Sega Master System
Sharp X1
Texas Instruments 83

To mention that GBA Emulation is a part of Wraggsters own Network, at least my article gave the homepages of the developers in first line… oh, to mention: PDRoms is fully non-commercial and hombrew developer friendly (we don’t link around in our own network to generate lots of pageviews and display a shitload of commercial ads…).

Wraggster how deep have you fallen? SHAME ON YOU!

He’s also pushing SNES emulation, tho it really doesn’t work that pretty… but well… you have your attention now! Congrats!

Spread the word and make him show who is the community! Teach him a lesson, so he will finally respect and proper link things of others! It’s not only about PDRoms, it’s also about every single homebrewer out there… I bet you prefer getting links to your own page, than having your product added up in his forum without mentioning a source? Right?

Dear visitors,

please keep in mind that the CORRECT URL is NOT .org. The .org domain was used to TEST certain issues, before going officially online at the old .de domain.

There are currently issues with the RSS feeds, as they still point at the .org domain, please fix this manually while we are at it. The .org domain will stop working soon!

Thanks for your attention!
