Well today was a rather calm day again in Emulation Land,nevertheless there are some news to report. Some are evenexclusive (about System16 DirectX) that you have probably not read anywhere else.So lets start with the rundown of what is new @ EmuViews.
|EV News - Some Tidbits - June 15,1998 by JoseQ
Some design changes that you probably have not noticedis that the main page is now in frames. You can notice ifyou move to the older postings and still see the same URLon the top. The only reason I did this was because now theMain Page is also a script. So instead of updating the HTML,the HTML is created on request and you will always get the10 newest articles at EmuViews instead of the regular 3 to 9there used to be. I also added the Week In Review which willbe a weekly feature starting again two weeks from today.
Some not so good news; this site will be pretty muchquiet from friday to monday since I will be traveling backhome for the weekend. It is my graduation and it is alsoFather's day. If I find the time, I'll post EV News, but noInterViews, or anything that takes too much time. I havetwo days to graduate, see all my family and my fiancees'. Plus obviously my computer is up here. Nevertheless I'mhappy I'll be home with my family for a few days.
Now to the good stuff. I added Grytra which isa Gryzor (Konami Contra) emulator. This game was one ofmy favorites in Time Out back then, its an action paced,two player simultaneous side scroller. One of the first ofits genre. The emulator has no sound, but it does has joystick support. From what I gather from the readme, thiswas a private distribution, but it got out, so I posted it.Docs are in spanish. You can get it Here andthe Contra ROM set Here.
I posted a new ReView for a just in time game, World Cup 90, which is a MAME game. You can read all about itfrom our Reviews Page. This one was written by Jellodyne.
Please read the article by Shane Monroe, in which heexpresses a very valid point - Emulators do not replacearcade, they just help to partially and temporary fulfillyour dream -. Which is very true for a guy who has gotten3 arcade machines in this year alone.
An InterView with Neil Bradley was more recently added.Featuring one of the longests questionaires yet and somevery interesting aspects from one veteran Emu Programmer.Different than Richard Bush, Neil feels MAME should stay inone piece. Read about it Here.
Very exciting (sort of) news from PSYke team. They havestamped a release date on this PSX Emulator. From what Ican gather, you can only see demos with this Emulator, sothats not long lasting fun, but its a good start. The dateis June 19th which is just 3 days away.
Have you been reading all along just to read the exclusive news? Well here they are... I have learned fromBartman himself that 3 of the New games WILL be added tothe System 16 DirectX port in this release!. Thenew games are Aurail, Alex Kidd and Flash Point.I tell you this Emu keeps looking better and better.
Thats it for tonight, till tomorrow dudes, thanks forreading this far! :)
