EV News - Week In ReView, etc. - June 15, '98 by JoseQ
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 Here to see it. So lets see what really happened...
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.
