      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Nintendo Emulator recommendations?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone is currently running any Nintendo emulators for the PC/Mac? I've got the itch for some classic NES games and did a little research into emulators. With so many to choose from I was wondering if anyone has some recommendations? Come on children of the 80's....I know your out there! laugh

Cheers.

I used to run nesticle on my pc about eight years ago when I got the Zelda itch- Duck Hunting isn't nearly as fun without that toy gun though...

It seemed to be about the same quality as the real thing- I don't know if there is much room for improvement on those games for an 8-bit system

same here nesticle rocks! nothing better than going back and playing contra and seeing how many times you can beat the game over and over with out dieing smile

I have all the NES, SNES and GENISIS games on my PC. Not all of them converted over very well but a majority are just like the real thing except playing on a keyboard.

Thanks guys. I think I'll give NESticle a whirl. I've got a Nintendo at home that is in great shape....however some of the prices they are offering for the classics are absurd. I've been looking at the USB converter's for the NES controller's which seem to work pretty well for emulators. Ideally I'm going to load the emulator on a laptop and bring it in the boat. Nothing like playing a little Excite Bike waiting for the clicker to go off! laugh

You just got me thinking about my old nes. I've gotta dig that thing outta storage, I think it's at my folk's house. I bet I've got 100 games for it. I need to play me some Contra and PunchOut!
