Well I was thinking that since VGS and Bleem are dead so why don't they turn them into freewares.....I mean a no money.......!
Yeah, VGS was actually good!Originally posted by Ryos
I'm not sure about the bleem situation, considering David isn't handing out much useful information, but VGS won't be freeware for the reason Nightmare said. There's a reason Sony bought VGS, and it certainly wasn't to have more people use it.

Most Freeware emu authors are coding for recognition and challenge (Kazzuya wen't from PSEMUPro to Square--Because square saw his talent and expertise with PSX conversion)
Don't you think that if they had no other income ANY emu author would charge??? Charging add's an element that isn't there for freeware authors in that people expect you to be god because they are paying (on second thought, I've people treat freeware authors that way too cause the author hasn't fixed XXX bugs)
Any way's my point is--> people need to get off the "Emus should be free" band wagon, cause they are on the wrong road heading for a cliff.
I demand official (or licensed) emulators, which would be commercial of course. For some complicated reasons it just never happened throughout history.Originally posted by kazzuya
But as much as users shouldn't demand free emus, emucoders shouldn't demand full rights on commercial emulators revenues, since their are doing only half of the work.. the other half was made by Sony, Nintendo, Sega when they invested hundreds of millions to create their markets.
