How long did each ROM title take to be archived? Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Can anyone tell me how long it took for each game on this site to be archived as a ROM?

If it took a while for each title to get archived, that might explain why Nintendo has only ported certain games on the Virtual Console up until today, instead of having complete libraries for various consoles like on website or other ROM sites.

the roms are not archived they are just dumped a standard file format like .bin. Pretty much anyone with the time and know how can do it, and they are often redumped to get more accurate roms.

the virtual console is slow to release games to keep interest and anticipation up, and to have time to debug each game. Plus most old games have to be esrb rated since it was non existent when they came out
