SUNDAY 27TH DECEMBER 1998
Time for a fat NES WORLD update, since it's been lacking quite a lot lately, sorry about that. Well before we head off to the update, let me just wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year :)
SATURDAY 19TH DECEMBER 1998
Price of the NES WORLD CD drops to US$20 (read what it includes in the 13th Dec. Update). People
who have already ordered will get a refund!.
Well I just received a neat little thing from a friend of mine. Go check it out here.
SUNDAY 13TH DECEMBER 1998
Oh boy! Zelda - Ocarina of Time was released all over Europe yesterday, and I ofcourse had a copy preordered (although preordres did not come as gold carts here, damn you NOE! bitch!) ah well I probably wont be doing anything major to this site the next week or so (like have I done anything the past week). Asking why?! hrmmmf... think man! the game of the century is out and we all know where the characters all appeared first, so if it wasnt for this old 8bit wonder of the world, I wouldnt be playing, but instead updating (should I cry or not?).
Well I finally finished the NES WORLD CD (comes with a nice color inlay!) and it's around 300+ megabytes of exciting material, as you can see below:
If you want one of these CD's then please send $25, in cash or International Money Order, along with your snail and e-mail address to:
JUST WANNA PROVE THAT I'M A ZELDA FAN!! ;)
Scans by Martin Nielsen
Oh, I almost forgot to mention. I'm starting a new multi-system site at emuclassics.com called Classicon. It'll hopefully become just as popular as NES WORLD, since I'm exploring the more weird sides of the GB, SNES, VB, GENESIS, SMS and GG over there. I'll be up around 24th December (yeah really!)
SUNDAY 6TH DECEMBER 1998
Time for another update of the largest site with info about the NES. Oh yeah, have you always wanted your own *full* copy of NES WORLD to check out whenever you want, without being online? Well I just got an offer from a company which could make this happend. I've decided to release a NES WORLD CD with the following contents on it:
Well back to business, here's what I've added:
THURSDAY 18TH NOVEMBER 1998
Just as I thought it was over, the owner of internet1, Roger, e-mailed me with great news. He has decided to let NES WORLD continue on internet1 at a trial basis, if I would add some banners.
So boys and girls, it's now all up to you... please hit those banners and the site wont dissapear! :)
THURSDAY 12TH NOVEMBER 1998
One month since last update and I finally pulled together and made something new. Sorry to all of you who have e-mailed me the past month and didnt get an answer to your mail, I'm back at full speed now and ready to handle whatever question you might have.
I've decided to remove the warning page, about NES WORLD going offline, since I havent heard from internet1. I hope they decided that I could stay, but we'll have to wait and see (if NES WORLD is gone one day you know why). I've got an offer about hosting elsewhere and have decided that the NES WORLD Jukebox, GB Zone and the remains of SNES and N64 Zone will move there. This will take some of the heat off internet1, which I hope they're glad hear ;)
Anyway here's what I've been working on.
Small review of Beauty and the Beast. For more reviews, click here.
MONDAY 12TH OCTOBER 1998
NES WORLD will not be passed along to someone else, as I've put a lot of work into this site and would hate to see someone else change or simply kill the site (not that it WOULD happen if someone else took over).
NES WORLD will stay online and I'll return in a couple of months or so... when I've got a bit more energy and a better solution for the NESletter distribution. I just wish that I would get just a little more feedback or new ideas for NES WORLD, it's been very quiet lately.
The Franz Lanzinger Interview was supposed to go into the "unreleased archive", just
because I know a good friend of mine (Impala) on the net wants to read it, I've decided
to add it.
SUNDAY 4TH OCTOBER 1998
If you've checked the messageboard or were on the NESletter distribution list you kinda knew this was comming.
I've decided to close NES WORLD for an unknown period of time. I originally posted a message on the messageboard because I didnt wanna bother updating, but a few people claimed it was a fake note on the board, so I had to update.
I've had too many bad experiences regarding NES WORLD lately, and I cant take anymore crap. The NESletter subscription list was used by a number of people to promote their own site or just send spam mail.... the messageboard was completely screwed up by a couple of guys who obviously had nothing better to do than type in a lot of crap.
The Internet aint what it used to be, I guess it's mostly 12 yr old kids on crack now, and I dont feel the same support or concern for NES WORLD anymore, so I believe its time to take a break. I dont know if this is forever yet, but I'll figure that out soon.
Thanks to all of you who actually did care (Hessel Meun for all your pics, please keep 'em comming)...
NOTE: noone will get permission to use parts of NES WORLD.... so dont ask.
WEDENSDAY 16TH SEPTEMBER 1998
Time for another cool update of NES WORLD. The NESletter now has over 100 subscribers, but has been delayed heavily lately. However you can expect a new issue very soon (Expected tomorrow). If you have anything you would like to contribute with for the zine, please send it in asap, thanks.
Just received my first HES (Aussie unlicensed NES cart), therefore I've completely rewritten
the HES page.
Wanna talk to me online? Well get on IRC EFnet #nesworld, I'm usually there every evening (CET).
Finally, a special greeting to "Elementl1" ;)
FRIDAY 4TH SEPTEMBER 1998
Hummmm sorry about the extreme delay, but I've been quite busy doing other stuff, like work. Anyway, here's a small update for ya'll to drool over.
FRIDAY 21ST AUGUST 1998
Heya... Just a minor update.
Added a a page about an old Chocobolo (Cookie) NES contest.
Supposed to update on my birthday the 13th August (turning 21), but I was too busy :)
Ever wondered when the next NES WORLD interview would come? Well a couple of days ago when I was fooling around with some searchengines, I found Jon Valesh, former Color Dreams programmer. As a CD fan I went to heaven, and I quickly wrote an e-mail to Valesh who replied pretty fast, that he would like to answer all my questions! (wahooo!)
Check the Valesh interview here.
MONDAY 10TH AUGUST 1998
WOOP! got a flatbed scanner today. It was about US$60, but not one of those cheapo ones which cant scan jacks..t, click here for a test scan I made :)
Well get ready for a ton(!) of new cool pictures as well as ocr'd manuals, check below to see what I've scanned sofar:
Huge update of the Single Pirate Carts page.
FRIDAY 7TH AUGUST 1998
Hey, yep I'm safely back from my vacation on Rhodes and started on my new job a couple of days ago. Because of this new job I dont really have any free time left to work on NES WORLD, so expect longer time between updates and even longer between NESletters, if no one else wish to write stuff for it.
I'm working from 9 to 19 (or 17) every day, plus 30 minutes of driving to and back from work, so I bet you can guess how little energy I have when I'm home ;)
Oh yeah, if you've e-mailed the past couple of weeks, but didnt get a reply, please be patient... I've got over 200 e-mails which I still need to read.
Anyway, here's some new stuff for ya..............
The update you all have been waiting for!! The update of my wanted/archive page :)
Hmmm thats I've I had time for today, but umm expect something new soon
(gotta work saturday, but not sunday....)
WEDENSDAY 22ND JULY 1998 (02.00 IN THE MORNING!)
Ok, here's a nice update for ya'll :)
Made a new page about NES games getting a sequel on the Nintendo64. (Also the
first page to use my new design).
Thats it for now, my plane leaves in a couple of hours (going to Greece (Rhodos)), so I gotta get ready to leave for the airport :)
TUESDAY 14TH JULY 1998
Hi... sorry about the delay in updates, but here's a very nice update with two new interviews. Sorry to those of you who have been e-mailing me about my Faxanadu walkthrough, it's still is far from done, but I should have an update ready soon.
Also, no new NESletter yet. I've been too busy to think about it yet and I kinda need help making it, got any cool ideas? :)
NEWS ABOUT VIVID BARRIER
Remember the guy selling NES copiers? Well it now looks like he took the money from about 12 preorders and ran away from home. Turns out the guy was an 18 year old who obviously had planned to run away from home and therefore put up a page where he sold both NES and SNES copiers.
I'm not sure what you should do if you paied the guy (John Bull III), I guess you'd have to contact the police and report this as fraud or something. People have tried to contact his parrents, but there's nothing they can do (but arent they still responsible for his actions?... ripping off people).
I hope all of you either get your money back for get what you paied for. I'll put a note here as soon as I know more about this, so stay tuned.
Well here's what I've added:
I promise you more in a couple of days, but I've been to busy to work on anything the past
weeks since I've been looking for a car and more. Also I'll be on wacation on Rhodos from
wedensday 22nd to thursday 30th July and therefore wont be able to answer any e-mails or
update NES WORLD in that period.
WEDENSDAY 24TH JUNE 1998
Just received a few goodies from Hessel Meun, and could'nt wait to share it with you :)
Added screenshots from the Super Mario Bros 4 pirate cartridge.
The following is a letter (reply) I sent to a friend of fragmaster, who? doesnt matter... Check it out and let me know if I'm totally fucked up ;)
Black text is mine and red is from the e-mail I received....
MONDAY 22ND JUNE 1998
Yesterday I sent a letter to fragmaster, a reply to the letter from yesterdays third update. Strangely he didnt reply ;)
I know I have no right to claim nesworld.com as mine, but I still dont know why fragmaster registered it since he has absolutely no use for it, though I do have an idea why he did it. NES WORLD rejected to move to classicgaming.com a couple of months ago and he therefore wanted to annoy me (guess he wont take no for an answer), and he knew that by registering nesworld.com he knew he could do so.
Anyway, we'll see what the future brings. A HUGE THANK YOU TO YA'LL for the great support.
Here's some stuff I added today....
SUNDAY 21ST JUNE 1998 (THIRD UPDATE!)
SUNDAY 21ST JUNE 1998 (SECOND UPDATE!)
More news on the classicgaming.com Vs. nes world.
I still havent been able to find out what fragmaster wants to use nesworld.com for, sofar I've sent him 3 e-mails asking why, all have been replied but none tells me why. Read the last 2 mails below (you can read the first one in todays first update).
Yes, I want to control my own work, wouldn't you? Fragmasters goal is to become the largest source of information on classic games, and thereby having control over every console page out there. So who has the "paranoid control" problem here?
You might ask yourself this question, why didnt NES WORLD buy the domain name eralier? Well until a few days ago I've been without a job and therefore didnt have a lot of money and could'nt go register nesworld.com, believe me I would've if I could and had known that fragmaster would take it.
All I can say is, this aint over yet. Thanks to all the prople who support me. Check out Tom Kidd's page called "the gray area", he has written something about this nesworld.com matter too. Go to http://www.texark.org/grayarea.
SUNDAY 21ST JUNE 1998
www.nesworld.com has been registered! but not by me. But by classicgaming.com who, at the moment, uses it as a link to their main page. Well I dont know what fragmaster wants with www.nesworld.com, if is done to pressure NES WORLD to move to classicgaming.com (since he once asked me if I would move there) or just to get some of NES WORLD's users to move to classicgaming.com I dont know. Classicgaming.com is = roms/emulators and which has absolutely nothing to NES WORLD, therefore I'm very pissed that he choose to use my page's name.
Here's a reply I got from Fragmaster:
Well enough bitching for now, lets move on with an update :)
I've been searching the patent server again, so here's a major update of the patents page. I've added the following:
TUESDAY 16TH JUNE 1998
I had a job interview last friday, and yesterday I got a phonecall from the company, that would like to offer me the job. So I went there today to sign a contract :)
WOOP! got a job!! :)
DOCTOR PC JUNIOR SALE! (FAMICOM/NES COPIER WITH BUILT-IN FAMICOM)
If you want one of these units, I suggest you order now. The guy who imports the Dr. PC Jr. to the US wants atleast 10 pre-orders, right now he has like 6. If he doesn't get these 10 orders, the import of the copier will stop. If you don't order now, you you might not be able to get one at all.
Go to vivid.abused.org for ordering.
Note, you cannot order by e-mailing NES WORLD, we have nothing to do with this. But if you need more info about the unit, check out our Dr. PC Jr. page.
Fixed an error on the FDS page (The DeceiverX and Sgt Bowhack documents links, linked to the same file). Also added two new covers, Twinbee and Eggerland. Both are scanned with my awesome handheld
TUESDAY 9TH JUNE 1998
Just finished watching the first 6 episodes of friends (again), and ummm... I had nothing better to do than update NES WORLD ;)
Updated my wanted/archive list. Got a few new FC disks + a clone.
Doesn't say which system it's for tho... AW ERH time to head off to this huge flea market, so ummm.... later! :)
WEDENSDAY 13TH MAY 1998
Here's another for you. Sadly I have to inform that I'll be going offline about a month because of lacking funds, my phonebill is almost at US$100 now, and I cant afford it if it gets any higher. I will check my e-mail now and then, but dont expect ant weekly updates.
However I will still work on new stuff, though I have to cut down on research, so there will hopefully, be a huge update in june, about the 25th.
Oh umm, if you know of a good web sponsor then please let me know. Cause I might be able to advertise a little bit if internet1 allows it.
Newsletter (now renamed to NESletter) #2 has been released, e-mail us with the subject
"subscribe" to receive the letter.
SATURDAY 9TH MAY 1998
The interview is here! Since the next newsletter is far from done yet, I've decided to post it here in an edited version. The newsletter readers will get an untouched version of the interview later.
I might as well tell you that after this interview with Vance Kozik I've become even more interested in the small unlicensed companies, it actually turns out that they weren't that small. Anyway, I've started hunting down the people from American Video Entertainment and American Game Carts, but it's a bit difficult since almost no info is available about them. Though I have found out that their president was someone called Richard Frick.
I've contacted someone who worked with Richard Frick, so hopefully i'll be able to get some information about American Video Entertainment. I've also contacted Wisdom Tree and hopefully they'll be able to contribute with an interview or something also :)
Well, the Vance Kozik interview is here!!!! Click here to check it out. I'm also working on
a Color Dreams/Bunch Games/Wisdom Tree page with misc company info and game reviews.
THURSDAY 7TH MAY 1998
I was supposed to add a huge update today, but I'd rather wait until I get Color Dreams' programmer Vance Kozik's answers to my questions.
However I said that I would bring you a scan of the Earthbound prototype. Well thanks to
my good friend imid, I could add it today. Click here to check it out.
MONDAY 4TH MAY 1998
Got a cold last night and I dont feel too well, but here's some new stuff for ya:
Added a crappy picture of an opened Famicom Disk System. I made it
a long time ago, but somehow it was never added. Ah well, here it is.
SUNDAY 3RD MAY 1998
Uh I was extremely tired today, so all I made was a small page about the Earthbound (Mother) prototype which is floating the net. I don't have the ROM, so please dont ask for it.
More stuff tomorrow....
SATURDAY 2ND MAY 1998
Sorry that I didn't have any update last week, but I had a lot of things to take care of, so I didn't have time to work on NES WORLD that much. Anyway, the first newsletter was released about a week ago. Thanks for the great feedback, and I promise you the next one will be even better. VmprhntrD, who runs the NES WORLD JUKEBOX, promished me that he will come up with something cool for the next issue, which will be released in 10 days or so.
I've added the missing link to the NES WORLD JUKEBOX.
That's what I had time to add today, but expect more tomorrow... like more patent info sheets.
WEDENSDAY 22ND APRIL 1998
Anyway, the first newsletter is about to be released, so if you havent yet subscribed... do it now :)
Bidding ends sunday 26th April 1998. Prices does not include shipping!
WEDENSDAY 22ND APRIL 1998
Remember, if you want to receive our Newsletter then e-mail us at "firstname.lastname@example.org" and please use the subject "SUBSCRIBE". First letter will be out in a couple of days.
Today isn't really an update, but I've got something for sale which some of you might be
Ok, It's a "First Austria" Famicom clone, similar to the Terminator 2. The design
is exactly the same as the terminator 2, except the First Austrua is grey. the "First Austria"
does not include a lightgun, but instead comes with a 999999in1 built in, however I've only
sofar been able to find Duck Hunt, Wild Gunman, Dr. Mario, Battle City, Super Mario Bros...
The multicartridge plays a tune called "Unchained melody" when you're on the select screen.
It comes with two joypads, european power supply and RF-cable. It's a good quality machine,
unlike many other Famicom/NES clones. It even says "The Worlds most popular computer
video game system" ;)
I'm asking US$60 + shipping, unless someone wants to pay more. The clone is very light, so shipping
wont be a killer. It may seem a lot for clone with only 5 games on the built-in cart, but
clones are hard to get... and this was my price when I bought it a year ago... And it shouldnt
really be because of the games you buy a clone.
I've also got a loose copy of "Quattro Arcade" by Camerica (atleast worth US$15) and
"Super Sprint" by Tengen up for sale or trade. I can supply a photocopied
manual for Quattro Arcade.

SUNDAY 19TH APRIL 1998
Ok here we got with another update. Remember, if you want to receive our Newsletter the e-mail us at "email@example.com" and please use the subject "SUBSCRIBE".
I've managed to find Vance Kozik who programmed NES games for Color Dreams, and later for
Wisdom Tree. Vance Kozik is one of the guys behind the best Wisdom Tree game ever, Spiritual
Warfare, but he also programmed my favourite Color Dreams game, Menace Beach.
Added a small page about the e-mail and conversations I've had with
Nintendo of American and Nintendo of Japan, good as well as bad.
FRIDAY 17TH APRIL 1998
Hmm couldnt wait until sunday, so here you got a few more goodies from us, it just passed midnight here so they didnt make it to yesterdays update.
THURSDAY 16TH APRIL 1998
Yes it's time for another NES WORLD update :)
In the past week someone sent me an unofficial, although it doesnt say so, version of Mike Etlers Raity List. The list is a version 5 of Mike's awesome rarity list, with a price list attached. But Mike never released a version 5 himself, so I guess it's the price list which makes it a version 5? Anyway, it also states that Mike Etler does not sell video games, boy what an error by the guy who invented and added the price list, because Mike owns atleast two stores in New Jersey called "Video Game Connections". Feel free to check out this new version here, but dont expect it to stay on NES WORLD forever though.
I've been able to find parts of David Sheff's book "Game Over - How Nintendo zapped an entire industry and enslaved your childern" on the net, by searching for "David Sheff" on altavista. If you want to buy this great book, you can order it at "www.books.com".
About the News Letter, which was mentioned in the last update. Its now 100% sure that it will become a reality, so e-mail us now if you want to receive it. Please use the subject "subscribe", doing so will save us from a lot of trouble when we're sorting out the mails we get. The news letter will be out every second week, with liftoff next week.
Here's what we've got for you this time.....
New look, however its only a temp setup... please let us know
if you like this new look and want us to keep it, or not.
I have to delay the multicartridge update again, sorry, but I hope to have it ready by sunday... no later than that. On sunday you will also have an update more, atleast this big.
NEWS FOR THE DISK SYSTEM OWNERS: Nintendo of Japan contacted me a couple of days ago about the Famicom Disk System, man Japanese people are nice... they forgot to mention my name in the first e-mail they sent me, in the next e-mail they apologized.... hmmmmm :)
Anyway I'll let you guys know when something new happens, just send me an e-mail if you own a Disk System and you'll get more news when I get it, because not all of it will be posted on NES WORLD.
Final note: umm the new VJ on MTV Europe, Ulrika, isnt she a babe?... ok ok, she doesnt beat the blond babe from Solid Harmonie ;)
FRIDAY 10TH APRIL 1998
Ok I'm back with more eye-candy. But before I start off with the update I want to let you know that I'm currently working on "news-letter" thing which will be sent out to people who subscribe to a distributionlist. The newsletter is kinda like a new NES Journal, I hope some of you remember it heh, it will include hints 'n cheats, hot new places to go on the net, readers buy-sell-trade, and ofcourse info about NES WORLD along with game reviews. The newsletter is textonly since it will be send by e-mail. Do not write to us yet and request to be on the distributionlist as the idea still is on a very eraly stage.
Ok now, a huge thank you to James for makeing this update possible, but for once again disturbing me when I was about to sleep, yes another night on the net and without any sleep at all.
So here's what I've added this time:
Major update of the Famicom Disk System page, this is really a must see if you're "into" that old dusty disk drive with the funny looking disks. Oh yeah, I never write my pages to work 100% with Internet Explorer, but it seems that only MSIE will play the small tune i've added to the Disk System page.... Hmmm Netscape :(
NOTE: No, there wont be another update tomorrow, i think, but do expect more news thursday or friday next
week. If you dident know, NES WORLD was also updated yesterday, scroll down and check it out! :)
THURSDAY 9TH APRIL 1998
First off, I gotta advertise for this new Famicom homepage which has been created. Boy this is eye-candy for all collectors!. The site is called "Familand" and right now mostly covers the Famicom pirate stuff like multicarts, singlecarts and Famicom clones. It's really great to see that someone can open a site with brand new things... GO CHECK IT OUT NOW, but dont forget to return to NES WORLD when you're done ;)
It's time to kick some ass (sorry about the language), but NES WORLD has been lacking updates for quite some time. I remember back in August/September/October 1996 where I updated 2 or 3 times every week. Well I will try, from now on, to update NES WORLD atleast once every week while answering ALL e-mails, including rom requests... but dont expect that I will send you any games. However please accept a few days for the reply.
I got an e-mail from a guy who said that I write "doesent" instead of "doesn't" on most (all) pages. Well thats probably not the only word i've spelled incorrect, but I will try to remember to spell doesn't correctly in the future. However please keep in mind that my native language is Danish, and not English (American), but i'm trying to write as correct english as possible. So please let me know if you discover that I spell a word incorrect over and over :)
Ok!, now to the updates..............................
Added a brand new "area" called Lawsuits, you can find a button linking to it on the index page from now on. It will cover those many, many, many, many, many Nintendo NES Lawsuits filed thru the years. I've been able to find a lot of official NES lawsuit documents by searching on "www.hotbot.com". However I've heard that there are some Camerica documents available on the net which i've been unable to find, please e-mail me if you've got them or know where I can obtain them.
Added a Camerica, NES Modem and a Color Dreams add to the "magazine adds" page. Sorry I forgot who sent me these.
Oh yeah... back in December or something Vadim Gerasimov, one of the makers of Tetris, sent me an e-mail (yes really!) from a "uni" in the US. He wrote a little bit about the Tengen Tetris version and where I would be able to obtain more info about it. He also told me that if I wanted to check out one of the very first PC versions of Tetris I could download it from his FTP site. He sent me this mail just before I left the college and I forgot to make a copy of the e-mail (dooh!). However if you want to check out the game then click here (14k). It is also added to the download section.
THURSDAY 26TH MARCH 1998
Just added a link to NES Online. Things have been sorted out. I also see that NES Gate has completely changed its look and contents. I wont mind helping anyone who keeps their site clean of ripoff's and yeah it is actually possible to come up with ideas which arent already covered by another site :)
Just check out NEStuff2 and read his new stuff.
Oh yeah, if you wanna talk to me on ICQ my number is 7996820
SATURDAY 21ST MARCH 1998
OK first off... to all you dumb fuckers out there who doesent have brains enough to produce your own shit for your own NES homepage and then rip off NES WORLDs stuff... FUCK YOU!!!! HAH! I just love NES Gate who ripped entire pages (HTML code and all) but ofcourse removed our copyright. And NES-Online who doesent want people to grap his stuff, but dont see anyhing wrong by stealing from others.
Who the HELL do you think you are boy?!? Is it sad that I've spent HOURS digging though old magazines and books, talking to people on the net, to find the stuff on NES WORLD? Hmmmf... in my oppinion you should do the same instead of creating a great page the lame way.. by ripping others work!
It really hurts me deeply everytime I see shit like this being created and I know |tsr feels the same way, because his great homepage has been copied probably even more than mine has. Oh btw, |tsr has moved his NES archive to http://www.atarihq.com/tsr.
Well enough of bitching... here's what I've added today :)
A new look, and imo it was about time. Well actually it wasnt supposed to look like this, but I had a few people judgeing the look and they thought that either the background or the logo was badly made. Also it might've been a bit difficult to read the test. But feel free to click here and judge yourself.
Updated my "wanted/archive" list, check it out... it now also includes games I have available for trades.
Go there and have a look ;)
FRIDAY 13TH MARCH 1998
Uuuh Friday the 13th finally strikes NES WORLD with unlucky stuff. We lost our counter! The college I used to study at finally decided to delete my old account (www-kvu.ah.dk/~i1q) and thereby my counter.
Well thank god it's possible to get a free counter on the net, so we got a new one now starting off at 200.000 (I think the old one ended at 188.000 or something).
Well expect an update of NES WORLD wery soon! with info about the only NES game which has a built-in anti-drug campaign, WALLY BEAR AND THE NO GANG! :)
Also, it seems like |tsr loved NES WORLD's books section, so he decided to make his own. Well I'm
just glad that I can come up with some ideas others also want to use ;) But please dont do like the
dumbass running "NES Gate" who copies entire pages from NES WORLD, but removes the copyright info...
bro I hate to break it to ya, but thats illegal.
SATURDAY 28TH FEBRUARY 1998
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE'VE GOT A NEW E-MAIL ADDRESS: firstname.lastname@example.org
MONDAY 9TH FEBRUARY 1998
If you havent noticed it by now, Gameboy Zone and the NES WORLD Jukebox has been updated.
Updated the "Famicom Disk Game Release List".
FRIDAY 23RD JANUARY 1998
Ok here's the update i promised a few weeks ago. Quite a few things has happened since then, I nolonger have access to my mailbox at the college (since i'm not studying there anymore) so from now on i'll have to settle with an e-mail account at hotmail... "email@example.com".
And i also from now on have to handle all updates of NES WORLD from home which hopefully wont be a huge problem soon, the internet account is being made (at get2net.dk) and i can borrow a modem until i buy one myself.
Also, I nolonger have access to a flatbed scanner, so no more new pictures until I buy one myself or if they can be made with my handscanner. But hey, people around the world are kind enough to help me with scans so it's not really a problem right now. (Special thanks goes to Hessel Meun).
Here's what i've added to NES WORLD:
Updated the "books" section with a lot of new cool material, must check!
THURSDAY 15TH JANUARY 1998
Finally I get some response about my homepage from Nintendo, and it's about time. Only they ofcourse do not want to help me with some cool info, maybe unreleased games, nope.. they want me to close a part of NES WORLD... the "pirate stuff" section which contains pictures of pirate multi and single game cartridges as well as Famicom and NES clones.
The weird thing is that they want me to stop telling people about pirate stuff for a machine which they dont even support anymore. Or maybe the rumour that they'll reproduce the new-style NES is true?
Anyway, NES WORLD will be removed from Nintendo's Nlist (their links page) because I at this time refuse to remove the most visited part of my homepage, I hope that eveyone supports this decision.
Read the mail from Nintendo.
I'd like to finish off by saying that I DO NOT SELL MULTICARTS OR ANY OTHER FORM OF PIRATE MATERIAL FOR ANY NINTENDO, OR OTHER, VIDEOGAME SYSTEM. I SIMPLY PROVIDE SOME INFO FROM MY INFO SOURCES ALL OVER THE WORLD. So please do not e-mail me, like 40 did this week, about buying multicarts from me, PLEASE!!!
THURSDAY 8TH JANUARY 1998
Actually this isnt really an update. I've added a new counter to NES WORLD so that you now can see where most of NES WORLD's viewers are located :)
I got back online a couple of days ago and found a mailbox with lots of cool mails. It looks like we'll have a new guy joining the NES WORLD CREW soon, man he's good! so expect some cool reviews from him soon.
Also we're talking about making a hotline (e-mail) for people who needs help with a game, sofar almost eveyone who have e-mailed me at firstname.lastname@example.org dident get an answer if they asked for help. Sorry about that and it will change when we open this hotline :)
I'll have a HUGE update for ya'll in a week or so...
MONDAY 15TH DECEMBER 1997
This is probably the last update before christmas, so MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YA'LL! =)
As some might have noticed... NES WORLD has a sponsor now, hopefully this means that I will have some extra money to buy some more cool NES stuff. I just got 30+ new (ok, used) NES manuals, so expect some new ones to be added soon. Also, you N64 dudes can expect a lot of Zone64 updates soon as I'll receive info from Konami and others in the future.
I just applied for a new job, and if I get it i'll have to slow down NES WORLD a bit unless you wanna help me dig up info and other neat stuff.
OK OK! ENOUGH TAKING! HERE'S THE UPDATE (this is written at 3.06 in the morning, ugh!):
Added some new titles to the "Same game, but a different name" page.
To those of you who have been waiting for my "complete Faxanadu walkthrough". Sorry, I havent had a lot of time to play 'n write a whole lot lately. But expect it to be added right when i'm back online.
MONDAY 1ST DECEMBER 1997
Started the Unlicensed game programmers database.
The database is huge and far from complete, so please help me collect the game info from all those unlicensed games, like programmers etc, copyrights and game type.
FRIDAY 28TH NOVEMBER 1997
MONDAY 24TH NOVEMBER 1997

Time for more new stuff :)

Big thanks to Sumble (again!) for lettimg me use internet1
Wedensday 5th November 1997
Finished uploading NESWORLD, GBZONE, SUPERZONE and ZONE64 to Internet1 (our new location.).
Today I received a message from "Splice" on IRC that parodius.com has been closed down. Something about Jeremy Chadwicks (aka Y0SHi) ISP closing down his server. Noone knows if parodius.com ever will be back online. Thanks Y0SHi for running a great place.... lets just hope that Archaic Ruins finds a new place for their web page, so that it doesent die also.
But what does parodius.com has to do with NES WORLD you might think? Well we had a link from parodius.com called "nesworld.parodius.com" which is a bit easier to remember since i've been moving around the net alot lately. Well since parodius.com is gone "nesworld.parodius.com" is nolonger available.
Please help me changing the links from other pages around the net to "www.internet1.net/~nesworld" so that people still can access the best NES page on the net :)
Tuesday 28th October 1997
Phev!!! A lot has been going on in the past weeks, v-wave going offline (noone knows when it will be back online), me making a lot of new stuff but couldent upload.
So, NES WORLD has changed provider again, thanks to Stumble for letting me use Internet1, however it is only a temp solution, Stumble is trying to find a better place for NES WORLD. Thanks man, I owe you big time!
Please use "nesworld.parodius.com" to access NES WORLD, because then you'll always be able access the right place where NES WORLD is placed.
Seems like I screwed up a few pages when I updated the dirtree. One of those pages was the one about SMB3, it's fixed now though. Error in the E-Mail address on the manuals page has been fixed. I'm working on a hints and cheats program, have a preview by clicking here....
Added a Camerica page (about their "gold" carts) Completely rewrote the Aladdin Deck Enhancer page... Updated my GameList/Wanted page (in case anyone cares ;) Oops... the Grapical Zelda walkthrough has been missing... now it isnt - Level 7 - 9 (first adv) and the entire second adventure is not finished yet though. Added the Official 1992 Nintendo merchandise catalogue.... Added a lot of multicarts.... - Thanks to Hessel Meun and "Photon" (From Efnet irc #classic) Added Pirate single game cart section (Thanks to Photon) Commercials page added (magazine adds)... Added a page with info (and pic) of SMW for the famicom (yes really!) Added Endingman S-700 Famicom clone to the info page Rockman 1-2-3 on Sega's Megadrive.... New version of the NES FAQ is now available. Page about Track & Field in Barcelona added. Added some new manuals to the manuals page... Added Monster Party FAQ (Made by Adam Lamontagne).... Finally remembered to add Mike Etler's NES rarity list v4.0
I'm probably gonna offend a few people now, but thats actually what I want/need to do, because....
I'M SO FUCKING TIRED OF THOSE LITTLE PISS ANTS WHO KEEPS E-MAILING ME WANTING TO TRADE NES ROM IMAGES. I DO NOT CARE ABOUT THOSE FUCKING EMULATORS, I COLLECT THE REAL CARTRIDGES AND NES WORLD WILL NEVER, EVER, HAVE A ROM IMAGE PAGE!!!! GET THIS OR FUCK OFF!
NOTE TO |TSR: If you think NES WORLD is slow, well then you should concider getting either a faster modem or a better (faster) internet provider ;)
About 40% of the e-mails is receive are rom requests :( Now you also know why the NES WORLD emulator page dissapeared again....
Here at the end of this update i'd like to sneak in a "THANK YOU!" to Hessel Meun for sending me all those scans and info. Matt Hull, for all the good discussions ;) and Edison Ong for telling me about all the cool Famicom stuff available in Asia, giving me a Disk System and Doki Doki Panic (Dream Shop) as cartridge!!!!!!!!! and finally "Photon" for giving me scans of his findings.
Wedensday 17th September 1997
Found the owner of the 115in1 multicartridge. James who runs NEStuff e-mailed me and said that it was his. Also... check out his page
The manual/instruction page has (ofcourse) been updated. In the future we will also have manuals in other languages such as French, Spanish, German and my own language, Danish. NES VIDEOS page created, 5 danish cartoon videos added... more will come next week.
Last week I forgot to add the new pages to the "info" page, but that is fixed now :)
GBZONE has moved from VmprHntrD's account to NES WORLDs.... SUPERZONE and ZONE64 has been created! If you want to be a part of the ZONE (GB, SNES, 64) crew, the e-mail me and tell me which zone you'd like to write stuff to.
Wedensday 10th September 1997
The time has come to take a closer look at the unlicensed companies which made some wierd, but some actually cool, games for the Nintendo.
This week i'm beginning the tour with a review of American Video Etertainment and the Maxi15 game cartridge. Updated the manual section with VmprHntrd's, a bit slobby, update. You're now able to see what he added in the "whats new" section on the page. Updated my Archive/Wanted list... some pretty neat stuff added :) Color Dreams and their dreams is an article about the company and some of the wierd stuff they had going on... The messageboard is added to the new index file and some of the older messages are removed.
Sorry but the NES FAQ isnt ready for a release yet, but i sure hope that I can have it ready for next weeks NES WORLD update.
For those of you who would like to know what will be added in the near future i'll tell you just a tiny bit of what you can expect:
The total 1992 NES games & accessory catalogue... A section with reviews of the many VHS tapes out there with tips and cartoons... Another Camerica/Codemasters special with reviews of their Quattro cartridges. I hope that I can get my hands on some pictures of the UK versions, because they use a special plug-thru system where you attach the Quattro cartridge to a normal NES game cartridge... A section with NES adds is under development. You remember those neat games adds on the back of your Nintendo magazine? Well they're soon online!
I've had a couple of FAQs lying around for almost a year which I havent finished, it is a FAQ for Faxanadu which I hope will be ready to be added next week and a FAQ for Codemasters adventure game called Linus Spacehead's cosmic crusade. I havent really got any idea when I'll have that FAQ ready to release though.
But ofcourse we'll have the more common updates such as manuals, multicarts, clones and reviews comming also. If you have anything you would like to contribute with or would like to know more about, then please e-mail us.
Well that's it for now.... see you next week!
Wedensday 3rd September 1997
INCREDIBLE!!!! NES WORLD managed to stay online to celebrate it's 2nd birthday. I'll do my best to atleast every Wedensday add new stuff or updates of existing pages to NES WORLD.
Updated the Famicom Disk System page with a lot of new info and pictures. Added a review of BIONIC COMMANDO (Well it's actually more than just a review) Also a new Famicom clone has been added. The Viditex. Lots! of new game manuals from Steve Begin (thanks man!) More NES and FAMICOM multicartridges added....
I dident know that it had been so long since I last updated my NES FAQ. But dont worry, the next update will hopefully be ready for a release next wedensday and it will include a lot of new info, so it will hopefully cover even more of the wierd stuff in the NES jungle by then....
NES WORLDs updates will only be made by me from now on, because I cant keep track of what's added when we're two who are updating. Like VmprhntrD updates the manuals page online while I back home is updating NES WORLD offline and when I update I accidently could overwrite vmprhntrd's update. So therefore, the only updates from now on will be every wedensday when i'm online.
The manuals which VmprHntrD added are removed from the list until I get them added to my offline manual page athome. They will be added again next week.
SEE YA NEXT WEEK.....
Thursday 28th August 1997
VmprHntrD, once again, later that evening... Well I'm still at it, and now I've added 31 NEW "FAQS and/or Walkthroughs!" "Wanna buy a monkey?" hehe just kidding...
VmprHntrD, this time: I've updated the page with a few fixes and a nice surprise.
GB Zone!(dedicated to Game Boy) is also back online and under construction once again. Find it at pengu.v-wave.com/TwinBee/GBZone Have fun, and please help make this Game Boy archive grow send all stuff to VmprHntrD!
I've added roughly 40 new manuals to NES World bringing our archive higher in manuals total that any other I currently know of. :)
Also expect this site to be expanded much more so in the future by Acey and me as well.
Wedensday 27th August 1997

Monday 7th April 1997
Updated the NES emulation page
skp.plys.net is gone (I was told that about 40 computers were stolen at the college) which also means that a part of NES WORLD is gone. I do not know if it ever will be up again and i'm not really sure what I had on plys.net but some of it was:
- FamilyBasic page
and a few other things....
I havent got a new place to continue the plys.net part yet, so I dont know when these things will be awailable again...
My own college is also reconsidering IF the students are allowed to have homepages (dooh). But NES WORLD will not disapear from the net. Some good friends of mine on IRC are helping me getting new WEB space.
