Sounds like they need some ego management. They really let personal pride get before the common interest in the project. A shame it has to end like this for people who are driven by such a passion for coding.
Good point, we're an emulation forums. Thread closed.Squall said:which makes mame not an emulator, its a simulator.
Yeah, I see, I'm not going into a debate either, nor will I lock this thread when it leads to an interesting debate like this. I just wanted to throw in something more lightheartedas smf mentioned, squall got the terms mixed up.
but it also depends on what 'level' you're talking about.
most of what we usually refer to as 'emulators' here, are emulators at the logic level, and can be thought of as simulators for lower-levels.
And authors write their code for their intentions. They only publish it at their leisure, but that does not mean it was written for you to get the exact arcade-fast experience. As said here before, if you want the arcade experience at home, get a port of the game, get a Dreamcast.believe what you want form something for the comunity mame has become a documentation project, what for when manny of the emulated systems are well documented.
if there emulator is not supposed to play the games that the hardware was meant for whats the point.
liek i said before i dont give a rat's ass what the current dev's believe or there ethics, i know when mame was first created users eaggerly awaited to see what games were added as working in order to play these games.
i have lived in a great period of time and have played my favourite games while still in the arcade and that experience i will truelly never forget,
so if the project is just to document how the hardware works and not about the games.
that my friend is fail , an epic fail.
PEOPLE USE EMULATORS TO PLAY GAMES
