MAME Section Updated to 0.184
Posted by MasJ on Fri, 31 Mar 2017 | EP Forums
Our MAME ROMs section was at 0.164 for a while so it was definitely time for an update. MAME 0.184 just came out a few days ago. The biggest change however is that we've now moved from split MAME sets to non-merged MAME sets. What does that mean?

Well, to put it simply, you no longer need to get a parent ROM for any MAME title that you download. All you need to do is get the rom and everything (parent roms, bios files, etc.) will be included in the file! The only exception to this of course are CHDs. If you need a CHD for a particular game then you'll need to get that separately since those can run to several gigabytes in size.

However, most of our MAME ROMs will now be directly playable with a single download. So go right ahead, fire up the new MAME and enjoy some arcade classics without any additional complications!




Make a list - Win a Nintendo Switch!
Posted by MasJ on Sun, 26 Mar 2017 | EP Forums
EmuParadise turns 17 years old tomorrow, March 27th 2017! HAPPY BIRTHDAY EP! We've had a great time sharing your favourite retrogames with you through the years and bringing back joy and nostalgia from times gone by.

To celebrate the occasion we just launched a brand new feature and a competition to go with it. Make a games list and win a Nintendo Switch.



Retro video game discovery is a tough problem since there are so many wonderful games buried in the sands of time. With that said, I've just finished working on a new feature for the site. We now allow you to create lists and add games to them. This way we can help each other discover some wonderful gems from the past. We'll feature the best lists on the Game Lists homepage so that other users too can find games that are truly magical and tend to get overlooked.

You too can create your own game lists. All you need to get started is to be logged in with an EPForums account (free) and you can start creating and sharing game lists right away! We're hoping that some great ideas and lists come together through this initiative and we'll of course feature the best ones as mentioned above.

To enter the competition to win a Nintendo Switch, you need to:
  1. Sign in to EmuParadise with your EPForums account (free)
  2. Create a game list on a theme of your choice. You can do this by clicking on the + Add to List button on any game page
  3. Share your list on either twitter or facebook and make sure you tag us (twitter: @emuparadise Facebook: @EmuParadise) so that we can see your share. (remember to set privacy to public on your Facebook share)


Competition Rules:
  1. We will select the best list as the winner based on a combination of creativity, popularity, and usefulness to the EP community.
  2. Each user may enter up to FIVE lists into the competition. This means that you must share each list on five different posts on social media.
  3. The competition is open to users WORLDWIDE. We will cover purchase and shipping costs of the console but we cannot cover customs duty and any other taxes that might arise.
  4. There is no region lock on the Nintendo Switch so we may send you a console from a different region, however we will do our best to send you one that corresponds to your region.
  5. You can create more than 5 lists but please note that only the five that you share with us on social media will be eligible for the competition.
  6. Tip: When you create lists, some of the games on your list may not have screenshots or descriptions. We prefer lists where games DO have screenshots and descriptions so if your game choices are missing those details, please add screenshots and descriptions and once they are approved (this normally takes 24-48 hours) they will show up on your list page.
  7. Competition closes at 12AM GMT on 3rd April 2017, winners will be announced by 5th April 2017.


Prizes
Winner: Nintendo Switch Console
2nd Prize: 2 years of free EP Premium
3rd Prize: 6 months of free EP Premium

Simple enough, right? So start making your lists right away! If you're still wondering what to make a list on, check out some of the featured game lists we already have on the site. If that's not enough, here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

- Wacky 16-bit games
- 8-bit titles that still rule
- Toughest retro games ever
- GBA games for children
- Most violent retro games of all time
- Games with the weirdest voice acting
- Top 100 retro titles of all time

Looking forward to your entries! Happy 17th Birthday EmuParadise!

Full No-Intro Sets Added
Posted by MasJ on Fri, 27 Jan 2017 | EP Forums
So we have a pretty nice update for you today. I've just added a huge amount of No-Intro sets to our Complete ROM Sets section. No-Intro takes this name from their initial mission of removing introductions added to GBA rom dumps by certain release groups. However, they later changed their goal to curate the best rom image for each game and thus have the closest possible archive for every single game they could get their hands on. If you're looking for a clean, almost 1:1 set for a console, No-Intro is definitely the way to go. These sets do not include bad dumps, overdumps, hacks, or any other types of images. Here's what has been added today:

Atari - 5200
Atari - 7800
Atari - Jaguar
Atari - Lynx
Atari - ST
Bandai - WonderSwan Color

Casio - Loopy
