Well I must say it's been one busy week for me, still
I'm managing to do everything as the smoke is finally
starting to clear up. I did manage to snag a few Rumors
here and there from various different correspondants, and
they are regarding MAME, Raine and some other stuff. It's
been a while since I've put a warning here, but I would
like to remind you that what you're about to read, it's
pure Rumor and should not be taken as fact. The high
ratio of Rumors becoming facts is purely coincidental...
or so EmuViews would like to make you think.
|The Rumor Mill (Late Edition) - August 5, '99 by JoseQ
Let's get right to what many people are probably
thinking. Hidden games in new emulators seem to be the
common trend, and Raine came out not too long ago, and
we still can't find anything. Well I've been informed
that what many people have found as 'hidden' games in some
of the 'txt' files are simply non-working games, not what
you would call 'hidden'. Do you think it's time for the
gold digging to start again? Let's just say this, if you
keep your eye on the right web pages, you may find out
fairly soon what they are.
Another Rumor that I received courtesy of the same
correspondant who informed you about Pit Fighter coming
to MAME. This is on an actually related topic. It seems
another 'Pit-Fighter' like type of game is heading its
way towards MAME support. The game features very similar
hardware, meaning big digitized sprites which scale up
and down. This time however, it's not related to fighting,
but to basketball. Some people might remember the game, and
the title, but I simply can't remember the name of the
game. Something related to the Hood. Should be kind of fun
Something also related to MAME, that I just have to
report. I would figure a MAME release to be very very near.
The content is there, enough to make many people happy. A
lot of progress has been done on the hardware I mentioned
last week, making the games fairly playable to completion,
and some more games have been popping up. I know one thing,
my server will probably suffer the consequences. I expect
the release to happen no later than this coming Sunday.
Expect MAME32 to skip a version number as well.
Some of you may have caught a glimpse at some pics
posted at Retrogames, concerning a Street Fighter 3D game.
Well, I had mentioned something about that a while ago,
some emulator running some of the more recent Arcade 3D
boards which are based on a popular console. However, since
those games are kind of 'too' new to the scene, and probably
quite big, I will steer away from the subject until they're
a little more 'classic'.
Well I really didn't have a lot of content since like
I said, I've been extremely busy with personal business.
Also, there hasn't been that much happening either. So that's
it for this edition of the Rumor Mill. Q-man here signing
off the Rumor Book until next week. Thanks for reading!
