Double News on gp32x.com

I DO know that posting the same thing twice is better than not posting it at all.

But is it really that hard looking what news posts already do exist before posting new news?

Well, it happened at gp32x.com - with the Reminiscience news post.

Anyways, here is the first newspost, posted by EvilDragon:

pspupdates: copy and paste madness

We got an email from Heinrich, saying this:

From the news update for "HuE for PSP v0.62pre1"

"The PC Engine was and is a very small video game console, due
primarily to a very efficient three-chip architecture and its use of
HuCards, credit-card sized data cartridges."

From the wikipedia entry for PC Engine
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PC_Engine):

"The PC Engine was and is a very small video game console, due
primarily to a very efficient three-chip architecture and its use of
HuCards, credit-card sized data cartridges."

Pretty nice how they copy and paste useless information to add some
substance to their articles. (What does the size of a console have to
do with an emulator for it?)

Great little site, keep up the good work.

1emulation: news now with credits but wrong version number

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

We at emunoobs are unsure what General Plot had for breakfast today, but it must caused a big harm to him. Now he credits emulation9 for an obsucre TI calculator. But instead of getting the correct version number as statet out on emulation9, General Plot just decides to post about the previous old release. What a black day for 1emulation.

What does "kthx" and "jnjhh" mean?

vg-network.com - once upon a time a real good newssite (called Daves Videogame Classics, one of the first emulator related newspages ever) also seems to go down the drain...

Okay, by the name of the page, we now know that they use Joomla (an OpenSource CMS).

But... what the heck do you mean with "kthx" and "jnjhh" in your Main and User Menu?
What language is that? Old Greek? Alien?

Anyways, here's a screenshot:

German forks are the best

Our german visitor XTale kindly submitted this odd german emunews site. Three different domains one content one mistake.

This is what XTale said:

"Hi
why you need to run 3 different emu-news sites? To put the wrong

- emukult.net
- emu-world.net

They all found mame 0.100u2"

Today we start to have something new - yes! Emunoobs is proud to present "FLAME OF THE DAY". For the first "FLAME OF THE DAY" we look at the userbase of our beloved "#1 trusted - 24/7 hours" news page "PSPUpdates". Of course this posting should not mean that everyone at pspupdates is a zero [-:

Here are comments of the recently released GBA Emulator PSP GBA v1.0:

Why in the world is this so slow? The PSP is much more powerful than a GBA. The GBA is essentially the same hardware as the SNES (just smaller), and we already have perfect SNES emulators. Is this just shabby coding?

By nightrose, at 1:40 PM

Oooooii! Why in the world you don't code yourself?


Pokemon doesnt run fast enough :(

So far the only fully playble game Ive found was "Love Hina",becouse its basicly only still pictures and you answere questions in it.

i would also like a 1:1 screen size...if possible the actual screen looks awful.

I was wondering when a GBA emu was gonna be made. Took long enough.. heh

By Yatahaze, at 5:54 PM

Yeeeeeeeea! If you would follow the scene, you would know that there was a port of Visual Advance before. As for most things: First get information - then talk


well, its great, but the sound is crap because the sound card opn the PSP is different than the GBA also. so ti needs work, but is great progress so i give big kudos to thsi guy! and i wanna see improvements REAL bad!

freepspupdates - illegal pyramidsystem?

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

A new sideproject of pspupdates: giving away free goodies if you refer your friends. we at emunoobs smell an illegal pyramidsystem. pyramidsystems are prohibited in most countries, only the people on the "top" will have an advantage out of it. another step which proofs the professional status of p$pupdate$.

pspupdates: more garbage

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

You just don't understand, there are only a few members on our forums that accept the new FreePSP's, I myself do not support it, but I still support the site because they need money, they need to do this to have the site stay up.
True. It is so extremly expensive to run a webpage these days. We bet, FrozenIpaq, you never had to care about webhosting and similar things before. You have no clue so just shut up and don't tell garbage.
I do not quite agree with the new freepsp's, but a site has to stay up. You have not even participated in the forum community, this is PSPUpdates strong point, the community. These forums are the best their is with over 20,000+ members and over 100,000 posts.
We must accept the fact that there are 20.000+ members, not everyone is running a lame referral-competition and cheats his sponsors like pspupdates. Clever step, money making is not everyone's bussiness. If only 500 of those 20k+ members pay for a premium account: Uuu, let's do a calclation:

500 Premium Members x 2,99 US$ / month
Total income per month = 1495 US$

This is ENOUGH money to pay a server even with terrabytes of transfers, but don't forget they are having Popups and over 4 regular ads too and how could we forget - the google ads are there too. Remember: The calculation is done for 500 paying members per month but they have 20k+ members. No one in this world can say this is a community service. PSPupdates are even cheating their own boardmods and say they are so poor. Sad!
Plus, we don't ban people because they disagree with the site, that is totally wrong. We may close their thread to prevent flaming, but now we have a rant section.
We at emunoobs have seen that several times, so stop talking garbage again. Even myself (Nadeiko) has bad experience with pspupdates deleting normal critism.

Emunoobs used to be a newspage which gently uses mistakes to report about them in a sarcastic way, but PSPupdates are an exception. We also suggest you to inform everyone about their actions.

pspupdates | freepspupdates: something which has to be said

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

EvilDragon joins the forces of fighting against questionable bussiness strategies. Here a posting he made on pspupdates. Let's see if it get's deleted:

Haha.
Sure thing. "One of our affiliates".
If you just check nic.com for freepspupdates.com and pspupdates.com, it's not an affiliate, it's the same owner, making even more money this way.

BTW: Be sure to read the terms and conditions agreement on freepspupdates.com!
Especially check out this out:

"2. All addresses must be in the United States of America. Addresses not in the United States of America will not have items shipped to."

So, if you just signed up and are NOT from America, be happy, you just did this for nothing.

Next:

"8. By registering for an account on FreePSPUpdates.com, you agree to receive any 3rd party messages that we wish to send to you. Including, but not limited to, 3rd party advertisements and offers."

Means: They sell your adresses for money you you will receive lots of nice offers (what, in my eyes, is spam. Just not officially, because you agreed getting it).

And lastly:

"1. FreePSPUpdates.com is allowed to place any account on hold for any reason.
2. FreePSPUpdates.com is allowed to deny credit for any offer for any
reason."

If they don't like you, you don't get a free PSP.
Easy.

Enjoy the scheme ;)
