Well, better late than never, right? I was too busy
yesterday, and the MAME release obviously took some time
away from my schedule, but who's complaining? We got 6
new games, not to mention Slapstic fixings that enabled
already supported games into working better. It was an
awesome release, and kudos to Nicola and the gang just
for that. But if it's Rumors you're looking for, you've
found the right place, as I will tell you some of the info
Team Spy has gotten just for me.

Well, the first feathered member of Team Spy already
got me the info for the Rumor Mill regarding HiVE being
on hold for a while, so if you read anticupid's Rumor ReView,
you already know about that, but just thought I would
remind you. So expect the next release to be quite some
time away, and of course, you can count on me to rumorize
as soon as I find out it's coming back.
Speaking on fast emulators, I've heard from my Retrocade
dedicated bird, that a new feature coming soon to this
emulator is screen rotation. And you know how these guys
always like to do it in a nice way, my bird is almost
certain that it saw the screen rotation happening on the
fly. That is certainly a feature that many people will
On what is definitely a more interesting topic for
those of you who like newer games, I finally got one of
my spies to find the Sega System32 emu hidden base, and
some new info surfaced right away. It seems that the
emulator has been making good progress as my spy got a
glimpse of the character selection screen on "Golden
Axe 2". The author seems to be working on the controller
functionality now. Something you will not be surprised to
know is that with instruction interpretation, the emulator
will perform rather slowly. Dynamic Recompilation is a
possibility with this emulator, but it will most likely
not be implemented until further iterations of the emulator.
Well, that is probably it for now, since many of my
birds came home with a 'no progress' sign hanging from
their necks. And who writes those signs I ask myself...
Anyways, get ready for an interesting rest of the week, and
more than likely, one hell of a weekend. One last short
rumor... InterViews are making a comeback!
