    There are other sites besides 1emulation that have covered this before the 17th 'mate'

    Well i'm sure i saw this more than two days ago on a site other than 1emulation as i don't visit that site at all. There was a small program written to extract the ROM out of the VC image.

    I saw it here 5 days ago posted by Tanks (iirc). The strange thing is that the screenshots are EXACTLY the same. I smell stolen news... [​IMG]

    I was wrong, it was iq_132, and it was 3 days ago.

    The screenshot were his, so here's explained why they're the same [​IMG]

    So what's unbelievable ? you seriously didn't think they recoded the whole game when the just had to take the rom and emulate it, just like NES Classics ?

    As for HTML, well fun to see they did not event try to make their own format [​IMG]

    Once we figure out how to put the VC games back together I think I'd like to upgrade all those user manuals cuase we all know Nintendo isnt gonna give us our moneys worth.
    I really wanna see extra art and notes from the programers and tips and other good stuff that the user manual should have. Also scans of the origonal too.
    Instead we get a "how to press a button" idoit guide.

    Good news here, I cant wait to get my hands in em and change that manual to super mega deluxe :3
    Also cant wait to inject games in there too like all those fun hacks and homebrew :3.

    Perhaps in the near future, but I expect Nintendo to do something real quick.

    What is there for them to do? They lose practically nothing with the Virtual Console, all they do is gain from it. It'd be a waste of time and money on their end to bother doing anything.

    wow, thats so true. Never thought of it like that...if its just an unedited rom they stick in in the vc game then im sure it cant take them too long to make either.

    That's merely loss of profit. And as (iirc) the hole used to dump the rom has been rendered public, fixing it isn't a problem [​IMG]
