Yes, that would not be allowed, as Bleemcast was a commercially available product.

Emulator vs game - I never had an opportunity to use it myself, as I understood its functionality I would have classified it as neither but instead as a utility, just like the disk for an Action Replay for example. However, Wikipedia does refer to it as an emulator multiple times so I'd be inclined to lean that way. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bleem!

I personally wouldn’t post it with a game, just the emulators. And a readme that says what you need to use it, as mgs and such can be easily acquired on the internet.

The emulator was a commercial product and technology is still copyrighted. If someone reverse-engineered it and made it open-source, then it should be good to post

Put it somewhere safe, like archive dot org. but don't link to it.
why would archive.org have the right to host it, and not us, though? what makes them any different?
legit question, have they been designated by governments as the only place where that sort of thing can be archived?

That, I don't know. I just like having anything sacred backed up onto their site, especially when it comes to video game preservation.

  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    some of the best selling games on the switch are wii u ports (that are priced way too high
    like come on 60 for a game thats a decade old??)

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @ColdBlitz, i forgot breath of the wild released for the Wii u
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    $60 for a game that's a decade old might be unheard of on PC but actually is not uncommon on consoles

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    especially Nintendo because they only ever lower the price of games when they do a greatest hits/platinum hits/players choice re-release
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @The Real Jdbye, and the HD collections released for 7th gen consoles too
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but they don't seem to have done any of those for the switch yet and maybe never will
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    I think we all forgot breath of the wild released for the wii u tbh

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @The Real Jdbye, tbh the HD collections are more justified since they include more than just 1 game per copy
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @SylverReZ I read that non-binary people identify as a blend of male and female. The point is i think i'm a blend of those and thus non binary
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Xdqwerty, Non-binary people are those who don't identify themselves exclusively as male or female.

    I don't identify as anything, unless I need to get on a plane then I show ID
