    You are aware posting links to ROM sites is against the rules?

    Well, the website owner(s) THINK(S) it's legal, probably even fooling this guy into posting it:

    How it works is that a rom file is download to temporary files and is discarded when you are done playing, and the rom is played in a Java coded emulator.

    It does seem kind of illegal though, being that you could dig the rom out of your temporary files at a whim.

    still, this technically doesn't even count as downloading, as it's an in-browser emulator.

    But it's technically legal in the same way that borrowing someone else's PC discs and installing a game on your comp isn't technically pirating.

    You can play D-Pad Hero! [​IMG]

    Didn't expect it to have a homebrew game on there.
