Emulation Wiki:
« on: November 26, 2013, 05:31:11 am »

There's a new wiki focused on emulation FAQs. Feel free to give suggestions or even contribute to it.

It has a few pages that are relevant to this place:
http://emulation-general.wikia.com/wiki/ROM_Hacking_Resources
http://emulation-general.wikia.com/wiki/Mods_and_Texture_Packs

Had a quick snout around. Arguably beats the likes of http://www.emulator-zone.com/ and a lot of the device specific things even if there are a few things missing. Interesting breakdown of consoles as well.

Naturally I would want a more hacking focused thing (FCEUX not being suggested sits a bit odd with me) but not everybody needs such a thing.

For hacking http://forums.warsworldnews.com/ is good for advance wars (it is the equivalent or better of any on your list for Advance wars related hacking), there are a few mario kart hacking type circles though I am not sure quite what goes there and the pocketstation is also emulated by no$gba these days (it is a little ARM device so the author added it to no$gba when his PS1 emulator was released). Similarly I am not sure I can quite agree with the no$ line being said to be based around speedhacks, though he has never really gone for cycle accurate the pursuit of accuracy is a big part of them (certainly no$gba is held as more accurate than VBA, though I must admit I have not quite kept up with VBA-m even if what I have seen there leads me to think not a great deal in that area other than sound core has been touched).

Perhaps also a bit on cheating might help -- though not all emulators have extensive cheap options the likes of emuhaste, artmoney and the similar programs have serious followings.

Specifically it was made to counter such sites. Most emulator sites have pages that are ancient. Emulator zone has pages that haven't been updated in ten years. These sites are one of the main reason people still use old out of date emulators. So instead of just complaining about these bad sites, we should try to make something to counter them.

The wiki is currently only maintained by a few people, so it reflects their biases. The more people, the more viewpoints, the better. I think the wiki is a good start.
