    Yes, very thorough.

    I think you made an error at one point confusing 'Standard Territories' destruction with 'Standard Confederacy' destruction. But that's really the only nitpick.

    Symphony, could you repost the message you got from dis? I think some of the players don't know of his intentions.

    The relevant quotation is:

    The rest indicates this has clearly not ended, and I for one plan on continuing to carry on.

    There is really little reason to cry "dead" after only 3 months. Simpler NESes have survived longer hiatuses, with most of their playerbase intact to boot.

    Since dis seems to be active again, I'm bumping this to denote that we are all still collectively interested.

    It also gives him a platform to berate me for doing so, which I know he loves. :)

    Lost my hard-drive recently. With it went my SysNES folder, which was somewhat big. I can go through and re-download most things off the threads, but it looks like I can't find some interesting tidbits like older versions of the manual / spreadsheets. Would anyone mind uploading their SysNES folder somewhere, censored if need be, for me to download?

    This is the Arrested Development of NESes. The fanbase just won't quit.

    Except it's not funny, just confusing.

    Well it's a bit longer than 3 months now, but we're not quite at the 10-year mark yet! I remain hopeful for a SysNES revival any day now :)

    Technically all the spreadsheets are still up. Nothing prevents someone from making a new SysNES, or even automating the systems in a simple computer program. It could be very interesting to turn it into an indie computer game, obviously with dis' blessing. It's funny how many mechanics in Stellaris this anticipated (and in many cases, does far, far better).
