Hi thar! I be new here.

Just mucking around with some of the source and the first thing I noticed was that it was all written in c.

I'm just wondering why wasnt c++ used? It looks like it would have cleaned up the code and made creating new low level functionality easier. You can implement alot of the c++ abastaction using c but its ugly and not as efficient. The wierd thing is it was created (at least the win32 IDE) using the visual studio C++ environment and then use a c compiler.

Just ponderin iz all....

Anyway, keep up the awesome work. Looks like it is really coming along. :thumb:

I fail to see the advantage of using C++. I am a C++ coder myself, but my tend to write more C than C++. So unless PCSX2 is going to use OOP or templates, writing it in C++ would be quite pointless IMO. The code could have been cleaner/documented better if they really took the time to do it :p

Yours,
