    Any one else thinks Nintendo needs to suck up the copyright issues and move on. I mean they’re surfing rom sites for the sake of surfing people. I understand that copyright is an issue but if Nintendo hates it SO BADLY put the games on the Eshop virtual console.

    Btw I meant “sueing” not “surfing”. Stupid spellcheck...

    the forum has a "edit" button on your messages, it's used to fix spellcheck instead of posting a new message to list all your problems.

    multi posting is not allowed, if you have things to add and nobody posted after you, just use the edit button to complete your last message.

    Good point but Nintendo didn’t care before, but now they miraculously care.

    Also the loss of emulation sources could cause a heap of issues for gbatemps hacking. On the subject of this though I’d you guys want a good rom site use *snip*. Great site with a lot of great games.

    Nope. If they got a site shut down then good for them.
