Okay I was gonna let the RGR staff handle this one but I guess it's up to me.

First of all, your post is atrocious. I mean this is one of the most poorly written posts I've read in a while, and that's saying a lot because I've read posts by Starwars293 today. You need to improve your grammar by a lot kid. I've seen Russians who speak better English than you do.

Now, as far as I can tell from your question, you want to know, first why there's no Sega Saturn emulator, and then why X-Men: Children of the Atom isn't available in the RGR... I'll attack each of these questions separately...

The Sega Saturn is notoriously hard to emulate. In recent years that scene has come a long way, but still, Sega Saturn emulators are very buggy and difficult to work with. Added to the fact that Davideo has stated MULTIPLE TIMES that the main reason he doesn't have disc systems like this and PSX are because discs are HUGE. The site is super slow and goes down all the time as it is, if you added discs into the mix, Vizzed would probably shut down. The only way he can add these systems is if enough users donate money that he can afford to buy more bandwidth--which doesn't seem to be happening. Of course, you'd know all of this if you read the announcements ever.

And finally, X-Men: Children of the Atom... Okay, so you know there is no Sega Saturn emulator, right? I'll assume you do, because you're asking why there isn't one. So what exactly is it you're asking here? The reason you can't find this game in the search results are because the game doesn't exist within Vizzed's database.

Some people's kids man...

^ all of this

Pretty much what Lazlo said. Disk space and what not. Personally, I'd much rather have netplay than an old system that's just going to slow Vizzed down.

Since question has been satisfyingly answered...

Lazlo Falconi : I think that the second paragraph of your post was completely unnecessary and very insulting. If you look at his profile, he lives in Cavite, which is in the Philippines. He might be in one of the areas that speak one of the other two main languages that aren't English. I understand that there are other non American users here who have better English grammar, but that doesn't mean that people who don't should be attacked for it.

I also need to clear something up. The whole disc based emulators being too big is no longer the issue. Once the site gets enough donations, David plans on adding disc based game consoles here. Pretty much all the systems dating form the Sega Dreamcast and older are in plans to be added. But anything newer than that (GameCube, Xbox, PS2, etc) are not going to be added. But like I said, that will only happen when the site gets enough donations to pay for it because the plugin updates are pretty much completely funded by donations.

rcarter2 : From what I remember, the Sega Saturn's issue isn't that it's disc-based, but that, in general, the hardware itself is difficult to emulate- harder than the Dreamcast to emulate, even - and requires high-spec CPUs even on standalone emulators. It'll be a tough piece of work getting games like NiGHTs, Guardian Heroes and the like running....

As for X-Men: Children of the Atom, though, why the Saturn version? The CPS2 arcade version is both easier to emulate -and-  a better overall experience without things such as loading times or cut animation frames. If anything, one should request more arcade emulation.

KiddoCabbuses : This is from an announcement made back in December when it was announced that the retro disc consoles were in plans to be added. Sega Saturn is on David's list of future installments for the site.
