ePSXe = FPSE?? - September 14, '00 by JoseQ
On an interesting turn of events, it seems the guys behind FPSE are claiming that the new emulator known as ePSXe was built from FPSE sources. Apparently other emulators such as: "Jackal", "Sope 0.4" and "PCSX" were also built with the FPSE sources. What do you think about all this? Feel free to post your comments here...

Subject: Is the damage already done?
Shadow of the PCSX team denies using FPSE source code and the PCSX project may be canceled (see their homepage)

This has all become rather stupid as it has turned into their word versus theirs and all that seems to have been produced by this is one emulator being close to cancelation.

Which will benefit neither sides of the fence.

This sounds famliar to me, perhaps some emu-scene-dinosaurs (hey, we're talking bout the inet, a year is a very long time) remember the snes9x vs. zsnes code battle. I do respect the FPSE people as I respect everyone who eer wrote an emulator, but I think its a rather chldish way you try to solve the problem. Afaik there a very few (if any) bad guys out there. Try to talk out your porbs before doing a rather childish witchhunt via your homepage(if they used your code I'm sure they are willing to give you the credit you deserve).

Just a few thoughts from Dark Lord

Subject: what do you expect?
If people want to start shouting about people using their source then perhaps they should ask them if they would like to combine their efforts. Not shout out about them.

And if they don't want to help you and want to go their own way then so be it. That is the risk the FPSE team took by going opensource.

Subject: FPSE == missing the point
They're releasing their emu open source, and then cowering in terror that anyone other than them might want to work with it. They need a good ass-whupping from Richard Stallman (Saint IGNUtious himself) for missing the point entirely. The TRWin guys had a similar problem - maybe Bill Gates is putting something in the water? ;)

Also, I tend to doubt ePSXe is a ripoff given that it's coded in part by _Demo_ of ZSNES. I think _Demo_ is a bit sharper than the FPSE guys seem to think.

i think those guys should better work together and share their contribution instead of making inidivual emulator

Well.. how can they tell about ePSXe? And also, how can they be serious, with a "We are the best!!!" comment? That sounds seriously childish. =(

Subject: open source
It's okay if ePSXe, Jackal etc. are open source too and if they give credit to the FPSE authors.

Subject: Well
As long as they acknowledge where the source comes from, I guess that's all right.
