This is a significant and welcomed event. It goes to show that like minded people with a single goal in mind can accomplish great things.
It took people with no egos or preconceptions who’s only interest was to further arcade preservation to make this happen. ShouTime had knowledge of the events but was fully able to get both sides of the story. Then he was able to filter out the ill will and explain to both sides the point of view of the other party.
What was written off as emu drama by most turned out to truly be a misunderstanding. Now both parties having a greater understanding of the actual events and reasons behind them can see there was no malice intended. We as a community were the victims of the domino effect. Now that things have been set straight we can finally get back the one thing that matters to all us: Emulating arcade games for the sake of posterity.
I would personally like to thank all those involved, ShouTime, Yohji, brizzo and the many other people behinds the scenes that helped.
