Hey! Recently I've been playing ACNL on an emulator for various reasons, not least of which it's simply more convenient, looks better, and runs at a higher framerate amongst other things. I own a copy of ACNL, which means that (as anyone with knowledge of the legal issues around emulation will tell you) the emulation is not actually illegal as it simply counts as a different medium. Of course, plenty of people disregard that aspect and emulate anyways without a legally owned copy. So it's for this reason I wanted to wonder: is emulation discussion allowed? am I allowed to find other emulator players here to wifi with (since wifi only works between two emulators)? Or is there a hard stance against this sort of thing?
Generally, we are fine with topics regarding discussion about emulation. It should be fine to discuss the pros and cons, non-controversial legal issues, personal experiences, etc. We draw the line when it comes to providing information on how to obtain emulated games, how to mod systems to emulate games, or how to illegally play games. If the topic you wish to post is asking how to do something regarding emulation or providing somebody else information about how to do something regarding emulation, it will probably get taken down. With that being said, if you have a discussion, just be careful about where it leads. If you ever have any questions about a specific topic or a post, you are welcome to send any one of our Moderation Staff a PT.
