Upon connecting to the Paypal site via the donation tab, it states, "This recipient is currently unable to receive money." What can I do?

Unfortunately, no. Even though there is no way to access the official download, Martin has never made 2.6a freely available, therefor it is illegal to up/download it without paying royalties to him.

The project has not been dropped, rather Martin has not updated his site for a year or so. There is no official evidence that supports Carmofin's conclusion (official meaning news from Martin himself).

Not really much to worry about.
NO$GBA works fine for most things and has work arounds.

Until it shows sign of life there's still IDeaS updates to look forward to!

While it is illegal to download it without paying for it, do you have any solution on getting 2.6a while the donations are unavailable :|

PayPal closed Martin's account because all software capable of playing a game on a system it was not sold for is in violation of their Acceptable Usage Policy. The same happened to ScummVM.

Nintendo:
  • All Nintendo games are on cartridges and very few have been released with multiple games on one cartridge
  • Any version of a Nintendo game that is not on a cartridge is an infringing copy
  • Software emulators that play Nintendo games without Nintendo hardware are infringing items
  • "ROM" is a tip-off term for infringing copies of Nintendo games (usually on CD or Disks)

Again, is there any evidence of this?



If your conclusion was true, there would be something about Nintendo's copyright here, rather than a notice that there is a problem on his end.

The AUP is evidence? It's the most likely explanation.

That's just a generic error message. You can't tell whether or not my conclusion is true from it.

Besides, if he violated the AUP, it *is* a problem on his end.

you can stay blueeyed about th ematter as long as you want, me, im convinced that he got into legal trouble with nintendo and they decided to settle it quietly. the timing is just way too obvious.
