It is crazy to think how long we've been posting on DC Emulation then here on BG. I joined DC Emulation August 3rd 2002! Over 17 years ago. I still remember why I originally made an account. I had the idea to make a Sega Genesis "emulator" for the Sega CD. So you could put a CD full of Genesis roms in your Sega CD and have them somehow load into the Genesis. I thought it was a great idea and just had to post it. I would spend hours on the DC Emulation forums back then. I specifically remember that you could make a new post in Off-Topic and if it wasn't popular it would be on page 2 in a matter of hours. The forums were really hopping back then. Then as time went on it saw less and less activity. I had lots of fun with things like NesterDC back in the day. I had known about emulators on the PC for several years before then but with emulators on the Dreamcast I could actually play them on the TV and it was just like playing the original console!

I discovered DC Emulation like most people when I was searching for a Dreamcast emulator. At first I didn't even understand what the site was about. I wondered why they had NES and SNES emulators on a website called DC Emulation. Then I finally realized these were emulators that ran on the Dreamcast! I was amazed. The main emulators I recall using were NesterDC and a certain Sega Genesis emulator that DCEmu would never mention. :olol: I remember NesterDC running pretty much perfect. The Genesis one of course had bad sound but back then it was tolerable to be able to play Genesis games on the TV. I tried DreamSNES but it was too slow to ever really be playable. I never did figure out how to make a rom list so when I'd use DreamSNES the laser would go crazy reading the discs.

Once the original Xbox had emulators that were basically perfect and became easy to mod that was the end of the interest of emulating systems on the Dreamcast. In almost no time it has a nearly perfect Genesis 32xCD emulator and even an N64 emulator. Emulators that the Dreamcast could never do. Plus they looked amazing on my 32 inch CRT hooked up with component cables. Although I lost interest in emulators for the Dreamcast I still stayed on the forums. The forums weren't really about talking about DCemulation for me anyway. Off-topic and Null was my main forums.

So many memories. The stupid topics I would make about Knight Rider and Perfect Strangers. The time I found some abandoned forum and we all went there and messed around until the owner discovered we were there. Mark Discordia and Mega-Fonzies. Good times.

Hi there. :hi:

I remember that. It was you, me and a couple other people posting shit for a couple hours until the owner showed up and shut the place down. I still don't know how he found us. :olol:

I remember being really dissapointed once the owner found us and deleted all the threads. I was having a blast then he came along and ruined the fun! :olol:

That must have been around 2003-2004 when we did that. 16-17 years ago. That just doesn't seem possible it was so long ago! If I'm remembering it right I believe it was on New Years Eve when we did it. In 2003 when I was all about the 80s I never thought I'd one day be nostalgic about the early 2000s!

Yeah it was definitely New Year's Eve. I don't remember the year but 2003 sounds right. And we're almost as close to 2003 now as we were to the 80s then. :oshocked:

I almost mentioned the distance from 86 to 2003 is the same as 2003 to 2020 but didn't because I've mentioned something similar several times on here when talking about Shenmue. :olol: I wonder if anybody else besides me and you remember this stuff from back in the old DCemu days? There were so many members that were pretty active that are now long gone and have probably forgotten all about even being a part of the forums back then.
