Christmas came early for all of our loyal users. Introducing our new 635 GB Nintendo Gamecube ISOs section!
August 10, 2012
Heads up - our server will go down for approximately 30 minutes after 9 PM PST tonight for a SSD drive installation and RAID-1 buildup. This will give the site more redundancy moving forward!

After a long time of uploading, not to mention running into a string of server problems, I am proud to finally preset to you our new PSX ISOs section! Included are 1,691 full ISOs totalling over 440 GB! The Playstation was my favorite console growing up, and looking at the list of titles brings back many fond memories as a kid. I hope it has the same effect on you - enjoy!

How do you play the Commodore 64 ROMs we just added without any emulators? Therefore, we have created a new Commodore 64 emulators section! We also went ahead and updated all of our emulators to their latest versions.

Due to the recent surge of traffic to both our web site and forums, we have outgrown our current single server. This has caused, as you may have noticed, a significant slowdown when accessing and browsing our forums.
In order to keep our user experience high, we had another server (with a SSD drive) implemented just to handle our forums' MySQL database. This should greatly improve forums speeds in every way, and the lessen the load on the main site server.
Thanks for continuing to support CoolROM - we strive to be your favorite emulation community!
