    Default Deep Issues: Emuparadise, the ONLY source for many Sega Saturn games.. gone..

    Many Sega Saturn ISOs can no longer be found on the net - not even on "The ****** Bay".
    This is a really unfortunate situation, since it's quite likely that a lot of these games don't even have readable CDs going around anymore.

    I happen to have a bought a Sega Saturn and played games on it for the first time this year, and I relied on ISOs from the net to play games on it via burned CDs and Pseudo Saturn. I've gotten to learn and experience a lot of games I couldn't otherwise in an authentic manner. Being a Saturn homebrew dev now, I can tell you that emulators can be severely inaccurate at times. Sometimes they perform worse, sometimes they perform better, other times they just don't work right or at all.

    That, though is besides the point: Many Saturn ISOs can no longer be found.

    I really come here with one question:
    Did emuparadise actively DELETE all of their ISOs?

    If they did, I don't think the Saturn is the only system that now has massive gaping holes in its online archive at this point.
    Of course I really hope they did not do that, and at some point those ISOs can be shuffled out to other more brave websites or made available again at some point.

    Yeah Saturn emulation has been quite buggy compared to alot of others.

    Have you checked any forum uploads? There isn't as much as the psx etc. but there's still a bunch there. Dunno how many would still be online though.
