we contribute to society, we're just sick of mamedev lameness. as a mamewhore though, you are too blinded by your mamewhoreness to even have a rats ass about the real going ons within the mamedev circles.some of you are damn right dis respectful, not newsworthy, you are the kinda guys that will take a dieing mans last dime , the sort who will never give anything back to society.
haze contributed alot and without his programming skills mame would not be what it is today,
the rules and ethics of mame are completly against the end user, we want to play games at there best , i mean whats a accurate representation if it runs on hardware nothing liek the oringinal hardward, how its displayed on the majority of users is not accurate with lcd's , monitors etc....
i hope haze or the new generation can regroup and supply what the end users have been asking for several years and that is 3d acceleration,
to hell with the ethics and whats right and wrong,
now haze can take a step backwards and look upon the creation called mame and outbeat it fingers crossed.
if you read his statement you can tell that he was pretty cut up about the situation and felt like he owed it to us end users an expanation on why he feels he has to depart.
good on him
good luck haze
If he was that dedicated to his code, he would branch mame and get some other dedicated coders to join him, instead hes acted like a ***** and thrown in the flag.
all in all. If you can't stand the heat. DON'T GET IN THE FRICKIN KITCHEN.
It seems you're also another misinformed fool, who thinks that mame is about playing games. SUCK IT UP, coz its not. never was, never will be. They don't give a rats arse if your game works, the project is about 1:1 hardware emulation, the fact you can play games on it is just a side effect of the supposed accuracy.
If mame was to disappear suddenly, it really wouldnt be missed at all. There are plenty, less anal, less dumbarse developers who can step up and provide emulators.
an emulator isn't meant to be accurate, which makes mame not an emulator, its a simulator.
