You made your first "non NT" post!

>Ok, 30sec load for 8Mb games

It takes 40 sec or less for 32 Mb games using parallell contact and 8 Mb takes like 5 secs or so...
But this is not relevant in this matter.

The point in my previous post was that using floppies is more pain in the ass than converting ROMs... and I don't think you can argue with that.

About the Floppy vs parallell port thing... Sure I understand you don't play a game for like a couple of minutes, and then you want to play the next one... Ok, but I'm talking about games that are 16 Mbit or bigger. You have to split them all the time, THAT's a VERY damn pain in the ass, and I mean a really big wooden baseball bat in your ass...
Splitting all games, and copying them back and forth all the time... jeez, hell no for me...

And, fuzzypickle, splitting a ROM takes like 5 min... converting it, takes less then one... What is more timeconsuming, not mentioning less stressful?
