    Our new download system is up and running. At the moment, only a few playstation emulators are available for download, but we hope to add our previous collection in the coming weeks

    Emulators themselves should also be a sub category.

    I was thinking of that at first, but the amount of entries each emulator will have does not justify the extra clutter. Basically, each emulator will have the latest stable release for download, and a newer unstable version for download (if applicable).

    For example:

    ePSXe 1.7.0 is the current stable
    ePSXe 1.8.0 beta is released. Since it's an unstable release, we will keep the download link of ePSXe 1.7.0 for people who need to downgrade
    ePSXe 1.8.0 final is released. ePSXe 1.7.0 entry will be replaced with this new version. The beta will be deleted

    having to scroll down from the categories list to find the emulators is more untidy, imo.

    Hey nice, now I won't have to go searching around for link from every thread. A very good implementation indeed.
    What about beta builds and plugins?

    That's great. Some more emulators and all would be cool. But I think there's no need to posting beta versions of emulators. It's a waste of time. Plugins would be very useful here. Nice work!!

    Y'know it's only my opinion. It won't bother administrators for some actions :p:)

    Great idea! Now we'll have one place where all emulators and their plug-ins will be available for download. No need to Google and go to different websites!

    Except for SVN builds - PCSX2 & Dolphin. They are daily updated.

    Its open to guests too, so probably just a missing permission.

    I'm not sure about space limitations on the server, but it makes sense to me that you might want to keep old version there, if not only for archival purposes, there is also the possibility of a certain game working great with 1.7.0 and having a bug and 1.8.0, or something like this.

    You could move all the old downloads to a archive category...

    Nice one!

    Just as what BigIg said, I recommend keeping some revisions in a separate category. This should enable users to fall back on the previous version should ever a fatal bug prevents it from running certain games during emulation.

    I like archives with old releases that may have disappeared from the original site. Every release of every PSX emulator etc. would be a reason to download from ngemu.
