    ROFL!!!!!!!!! I had completely forgotten about something, but you just reminded me. It is a long story, but it ended up with my friends and I setting fire to a milk truck and hiding from the fire department!

    Speaking of unsafe neighborhoods, every house in Guatemala has a fence with razor-wire on top. Theft was pretty common.

    I decided to say screw it and include Chippy. But I am going to leave out PC-8801 and 9801. Seeing as how they were Japanese only I don't think there will be much desire for them unless you are in Japan Japanese or are fluent in written Japanese. I think stuff like BlueMSX-Wii and DOSBox are more important.

    Also it will be a little revenge for all the GX bashing.

    I think Joostin may get his way. I can not get this emulator to work. There are two versions out there and neither work for me. I spent quite a while with it last night trying to get it to run. I wrote the entire Chippy section, took all the pics, and made both an icon and a meta for it. I put it my Wii to wrap everything up and take pics of it in action but no luck. The HBC tells me it's not a valid Wii application. I've tried both version 1 and pre-release version 2 in both their native ELF and DOL formats. All of them give me the same result. It's dealing with crap like this that made originally believe that the HBC didn't support ELFs anymore. I know I am wrong thanks to Cile and my own experimentation since though. Old not updated apps suck! Has anyone else ever had the HBC tell them the app they are trying to run isn't a valid Wii app even though it's a DOL or ELF? I tried everything I could think of short of trying to find the source and compiling it myself.
