This site was founded at the end of March 1997, first under the name "SMS Camp". It later evolved into a generic emulation site called "Emulation Camp" then split, went back into focus and was renamed to "SMS Power!" in 1999. Many people have joined the community since then and are working hard in order to make this site and our projects a reality.
Bock has released 113 prototypes.
