Back then when FME was real!

I still chat to choppers to this day, in between his bouts of getting arseholed on cheap wine the poof ;)

I remember pre Hovel, and I don't mean the MSN forums or the old FM email mailing list, I mean Alex'es webpage which was called "Eye on The Isle Of Man".  This was where he first put up roms/layouts and version 5.9 (?) of MPU34 emu.

Happy days.

Didn't he release JPeMu2 on there as well - with the restrictions removed as his final shot before closing the Hovel?

I'm sure he did - but, like I am - it's a little foggy! ;) lol

I see my first post was 14th August 2001, I would have been 31 when I discovered FME.

Brilliant.

Wow, look at the names of those no longer around.  In both senses of the term.  Quite sad.

I've got half way through them, going to read the rest later tonight. So far been a great few hours read. I still remember writing some of my posts, particularly about being on holiday and can't wait until I got back to play FME. As sad as it was, I remember thinking, I'd be happy to be going home tomorrow, to be able to play everything released. FME, was genuinely as exciting as going on holiday, no more exciting. As Degsy said on his fme history video, I played nothing else, for weeks and weeks and weeks, after discovering it.

I guess it's not the absolutely day 1 of FME, but unless we see any talk pre the first non freeware MPU3/4 emulator release and the initial layout creation for it, it's as close as we are going to get.

As for people no longer around, it's been good to see a few people returning to FME in the past couple of weeks, but yes although I'm not in the know about these things, I do believe some have left us for the great arcade in the sky.
