    EmuTalk Reborn suggestions

    I thought after the update of the board software it's time to strength our great community, add new features, fix annoying stuff and rebuild some features.
    After that emutalk could finally be the place again, where "normal" emu users, coders, contributors and emu coders can connect, talk and report to each other.
    So I ask you: what do you want to see in the following days, months and years?

    I'll start with the things I really don't need to see:
    Facebook/twitter/share extensions. Nearly no one will use it and it costs bandwidth and has nearly no gain at all. Same applies to the tags/cloud feature (another one of this senseless extensions).
    Only thing I would like to see is a emutalk twitter account, to let us know about downtimes, problems etc.



    What do I would love to see:
    1. Clean up the Index and add new stuff.

    My suggestion (was some work, but just a proposal)
    N64 Emulation
    • 1964
      -> subforum for Ultrafast
      -> remove high res from 1964 board
    • PJ64
    • Mupen64Plus
      (the only still active emulators)
    • Old N64 Projects
      -> All other N64 Emulation sub boards
    • General N64 Emulation Discussion

    DC Emulation
    • Demul
    • Makaron
    • NullDC
      (same applies to them)
    • Old DC Projects
      -> All other DC Emulation sub boards
    • General DC Emulation Discussion

    GC Emulation
    • Dolphin
    • Gekko (it's open source and still "fresh"...)
    • Old GC Projects
      -> All other GC Emulation sub boards
    • General GC Emulation Discussion


    Now the next part will be completely rearranged

    Community Projects
    • High Resolution Textures
      1. N64
      2. Gamecube/Wii (Dolphin)
      3. Arcade (Model2)
      4. Saturn (Satourne)
        ( all of them with Tutorials, completed projects and WIP subboards)
    • Screenshots
    • New Emulation Projects
      (that doesn't fit in any category)
    • Netplay
    • Cheats discussion
    • Highscores
    • Plugins
    • Programming


    General Emulation
    • Handheld Emulation
      1. GB(C/A)
      2. DS
      3. PSP
    • Playstation Emulation
      -> we could put nSX2 into it and open a PCSX2 subboard aswell, also we would have place for ePSXe discussion
    • NES Emulation
      1. JNES
    • SNES Emulation
    • Saturn Shack
    • Arcade Corner
      -> MAME, FBA... discussions, probably the arcade versions of NullDC and Makaron, too


    General Discussion
    • Gaming
    • Talk of the Town
    • TechTalk
    • IRC Quotes


    Website Corner
    • Emu64 News
    • Suggestions?
    • Emu64 Reviews


    The abandoned dungeon:
    • A.I. - Ask Imabot
    • Darkengine.dll
    • eVoodoo


    That's it for now. Hope you like my new index, give your suggestions.
    (dunno if I forget anything, it's late here)

    Additional:
    New download system (for hosting the high res packs, new projects etc.)
    And we need new smileys and icons. I would like a selection like here. ()

    Yeah. The strike command wouldn't be that bad, aswell.

    If this is going to be the new theme, can we make the Last post Title (on board index) bold please? A little hard to read at the moment

    Good suggestions, I differ on the smaller points but for the most part its the same

    Mostly about names:
    1) Mupen64 not Mupen64 plus, the plus version should have its own subforum under Mupen in my opinion.
    2) Other N64 Projects instead of Old N64 Projects.

    Can we think of a name other than the abandoned dungeon, seems like a negative name overall to me.

    Perhaps make it a subforum of Website corner and call it something else. Doesn't need to be its own category at least.

    Old E64 projects

    Perhaps adding an 'inactive' section for N64 emulators and set them read only so if someone ever wanted to hunt down a post about ... I don't know nemu64 for example they could. In fact I suggest ALL emulators that are no longer being developed that had or could have had there own subforum be handled that way. However I suggest changes be done over a period of time, rapid rearranging things can lead to confusion. HR forum thing has been asked about more than just a few times however Martin is actually here now so maybe. Just one step at a time. Steady progress is better than rapid progress riddled with mistakes. That's my lesson from the last 10 years of emulation. Oh I forgot something under PlayStation do put PCSX (squall_leonhart has a Google code location) etc. It's not abandoned but ceased development. This emulator may have some activity in the future so just like E64 emulators had more activity as soon as something new was introduced into it. Cyb

    there is a great irc mod for vb4, what emutalk also needs is new forums for discussion of new consoles, at least one for each console
