The story of Emulation64 starts back in early 1999, when Martin decided to start his first emulation site. The site didn't reach more than a few people each day, and that's when he did like most other sites are doing - a link exchange. He contacted Stian, founder of another N64 emulation site. Stian agreed to the link exchange, and this is how the two came in contact at first.
Not much later, Stian asked Martin if the latter would be kind enough to update his site during a two week vacation he had. Martin though about it a bit, and was unsure. Somehow, and I can't remember who it was who came up with the idea, the two Scandinavians, together with Luigi from the Unofficial UltraHLE page, formed a much more comprehensive and serious site. The major gaming site Glide Underground showed interest in hosting the N64 emulation only site, and on launch day (June 7, 1999), it had more than 1000 visitors.
On IRC, Martin came in contact with Ztnet founder Zach (Lev). He offered hosting with Ztnet, and the offer was gladly accepted. The Emulation64 network has grown ever since, and it is hosting emulators, emulation sites as well as non-related sites.
Now the Emulation64 network has its own, dedicated servers, serving hundreds of thousands of page views every day. The advertising funded network currently consists of nearly 200 websites. The network is still run and owned by Martin.
