Well, maybe a little too late, but today I'm adding a new weekly
feature to EmuViews. It will be called the Week In ReView. Basically it's
just a script that shows the headers for the past week, and in case you
didn't catch it, you get the chance to do so. Or just if you are doing
research, you'll be able to look at chunks that cover weeks instead of
two or three days. For this past week you can click
to see it. So lets see what really happened...
|EV News - Week In ReView, etc. - June 15, '98 by JoseQ
Last week we saw the appearance of 6 new versions or new emulators
as in the case of MAME for newer version .33b5 and DTMNT for a completely
new emulator. Latest MAME beta didn't have any blockbuster hit, but it
was welcomed nevertheless. DTMNT features speed and many updates
to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles emus around. Latest version includes
all kinds of Joystick Support among other things. You can get any of our
emulators on the Emulators Page.
We also had three InterViews last week. RAINE author Richard Bush
explained his point of view on the size of MAME, and talked to us about
about whats going on with him, since he is now sort of away from the net.
Lord_13 explained how he looks at the Emulation World and his opinion
on the happenings around the scene. Lastly and sadly, Thierry explained
on EV why he was retiring from programming Emulators. That was the low
point of the week as we are always sad to see people leave. We wish
Thierry the best.
In an interesting case, we saw the birth of a fake emulator created
by EmuXtraordinary. EmuXtraordinary has denied to reply to my E-mails
so I've rendered him guilty of fake charges. CapXtra 2, as he called
his Emu was supposed to emulate CPS 2 games (a.k.a. Street Fighter
Alpha and the such). He even went far enough to post some screeshots
that looked rather dubious, with graphical "errors" that looked taken out
of an unexperienced Paint Shop Pro user, and misplaced names that were
obviously not the result of preliminary emulation. Ask GurtyGurt in
#mame and he can give you the full details of his investigation.
Those were the highlights for Last Week.
Lets always hope that the next week is more exciting than the previous one.
