I don't understand why you don't include the Allegro DLL in the emulator ZIP package. It's not that big. And on top of that the link is down.

Looks a tad buggy, I see it flickering between a correct image and an incorrect image.

Just to avoid the redownload of the same library.
What's down anyway? The site is up, at last OK here.

@Dwedit: what game is that? Chinese? I suppose it's a MMC3.

I don't think it's worth it from usability point of view. OK the users save a couple of seconds in download time, but people who don't notice the DLL download may end up trying the emulator and getting annoyed/deleting it because it doesn't start out of the box.

The Allegro DLL download link.

OK, fixed the Allegro zip file. Thanks :)

EDIT: fixed the flickering in Chuchu Rocket. Well, Kick Master still have a waving title screen. :(

Watch out for the hotlink protection, you need to copy-paste the URL to download.
