RealityMan calls it quits... Again! - September 11,2000 by JoseQ
I found it rather amusing that I had this image from a news update a long time ago when RealityMan quit the scene for the first time. I had not posted about this since I was away for the weekend and had no time to verify it. It seems RealityMan has found it innappropriate for him to continue using his time to develop emulators and as of a few days ago, both of his projects "UltraHLE" and "Jagulator". Apparently, he didn't take lightly comments made from some sites in which they seemed to diminish his participation in "UltraHLE" while glorifying Epsilon-'s contributions. While I had all too well heard of such rumors myself, the lack of releases for such an extended period of time and his sudden quitting can only expand on what others had said before. So there you have it. There will be no more of RealityMan and his emulators. His projects are dead and nowhere to be seen again. Luckily we do have other good Nintendo64 emulators and other Jaguar emulator projects in development as well. We will just see which one is the first to pop the Jaguar bubble. Hey, feel free to post your comments on this as well!

Subject: ..well...
From:
Ignore that last post.
It was made by a child.

I would like to explain something
however to all those intelligent people
who keep ragging on rom downloaders.

ROMS are not the issue here.

Its whether or not you have the time and
the ability to create something and have
the will power to not get sidetracked.

If your truly happy doing something like
creating an Emulator you don't give a
damn who sends you mail or asks for
anything.

You would be an idiot to actually care.

However, everybody keeps knocking
downloaders, well gosh darn...downloads
occur..

Just for once I would like the
supersillious idiots who say that
downloading is bad to
SHUT THEIR FREAKING HOLES...

Its pathetic, half the freaking populace
of the internet is downloading Porn or
Copywritten material and your
worried that someone asks for a ROM...

Come on get a life...downloading ROMS
is not bad or LAMER like. Actually
consider this, MP3's do a lot less and
are a lot of FUN. Do you see somebody
screaming NAPSTER is lame?

Hell if RealityMan wants to quit let him...
I would have loved to see his emulator
and even played those horrible illegal
ROMS on it...ooooo...im sooo lammmmme...
but it didn't happen...

I know where my real life is
do most of YOU????

The people who complain to much about
WAREZING, PORN and ROMZ are just
tight a$$e$ who can't get over
themselves...

Those people are probably the same
ones who would cheat on their wives,
pimp their daughters, and god knows
what to their so called friends...

"RealityMAn" I wish you LUCK....

This is going to be harsh, but,
you should have realized the world wasn't
made in your image.

If you wanted to offer something to the
public for FUN, then you sure as hell
should have prepaired yourself for the
PUBLIC response...look at NAPSTER!

You should also think of this
if you would finish your Emulator you
could sell it to BLEEM and we would
then BUY it off of them.

You would be stinking RICH...

first of all jandaman/realityman got $1/1000 visitors to the site, so either one of them probably made a lot of money. as someone also said there were no "new" pics other than those which could be obtained with ultrahle1 and new inis. i personally understand how he feels cuz i myself went through a week of feeling fed up cuz of lots of lamers and eventually you start coding again... however my feelings are that the whole realityman returns things might even have been a hoax... jandaman himself hardly ever spoke to "him".

From:
Well as I said in another bulletin, it's just sad that Reality Man has cranked himself up for deception.

How? Well he said from the start that he wouldn't tolerate flames and lamers. Well, this is like saying you will not tolerate sunlight. You're just sure you're going to be exposed and get upset at some moment in time.

Mind you there is too much I don't know about Reality Man's situation so I will not extrapolate or speculate. If he quit then he had a reason.

One last thing. I've learned, thru time, that situations are never as simple as they seem. Specially where there are rumours flying around and secret stuff being hidden and all. It's just bound to get horribly entagled.

Thank god MAME's not like that!

From:
RM didn't release any version, so we can't be really shure wether he had REALLY managed to do improvents since version 1.0. However, I won't blame him for dropping this project. It's his life, and he can do whatever he finds suitable for him.
It is true that many people will be dissapointed, but nintendo 64 emulation is not death. there are many emulators hanging out there (just look at CORN).

What I cannot understand is his attitude ("I will delete the source"). If he didn't want to continue because of LAMERS, then he should had released the source, so that other good programers could continue ultrahle.

By the way, I don't intend emulators to be perfect. If I can see something in my monitor, I'm happy. That's why I've never complained of ultrahle speed.

I've never used UltraHLE am I wrong??

I'm happy enough with my MAME, MESS and ZSNES... so this decision of RealityMan's doesn't affect me, that said, it's always a shame to see emu coders get fed up and leave... but then again, the day thatI'll start using N64 emulators (probably about 10 years from now - if ever), there will probably be a lot of much better ones around... so nuff said, life goes on, emulation goes on...

Subject: Tis a shame
From:
UltraHLE was the only N64 emu I managed to get to work to reasonable satisfaction on my PC (416mhz Celeron with Voodoo2).

So it's really sad to hear it will be no more. It would be nice to see these dead projects go open-sourced, still, you never know, look at Raine for example... and if it were me I wouldn't release source until I was dead certain I'd never work on the thing again (er, unless I was working within an open-source framework to begin with...)

It's also sad to hear all the people complaining they won't be getting another free handout, but then it IS rude to tell somebody they're getting a present and then not deliver...
It's also sad to hear another story about an emu programmer getting sick of Flamers n such and quitting...surely there was good with the bad? Did Realityman not know the world is full of insensitive idiots? You're SUPPOSED to ignore them....
Anyway, life goes on...so can anyone recommend a good replacement emu? I've had this 1080 snowboarding file on my HD forever now...

Try Corn, I heard it's not too bad. On that open sourced emu thing, I like seeing projects continue, but by looking at Raine, the best progress was made by the person who understands the emu the best, Richard Bush. Maybe 1 day ppl will look at the fact that until a few years ago there was no emulation & be satisfied that there are those who spend their time w/o getting $$$ working on these great projects and stop cryin' to them for once. Long live emu authors!!

You can see that a project wonīt be so good as you might expect when thereīs long delays.

Yes, nobody can preview facts that might change our lifes... but you can do things (releases) before they happen, canīt you?

I donīt use n64 emus, neither a CD-r0mZ of anything... Like a "L4M3r guy" said: "finish your project or put it down!" -- I have to agree.

Why should he? It's his Emu he doesn't work for you. He owes nothing to any of us.

But in this case the delays were because he has an actual life instead of just spendind 20 hours a day staring into a computer screen, and believe me I know people like that, so it's not a slam or anything.

not if its not in a good state, all that would lead to is idiots mailing him or whining on the boards.

I don't blame him for quitting. Look at what the subject of him quitting has brought out in you guys. All you are is a bunch of losers who want want want and when some one says they're gonna take a little time off you all start crying like the babies you are. All that ever succeeds in doing is getting great programmers to leave the emu-community, I've seen it way too many times over the last four or so years. A bunch of people that cry and cry that contribute absolutely nothing to the community except to make site providers bandwith bills go through the roof. Just felt I had to get this off of my chest, and if I've offended any of you I don't really care. It's enough that these people crap from the game companies and stuff, without having to hear from a bunch of (I hate to use the term as it seems cliche, but it is what you all are) lamers.

Wrong. Why should we be losers? We would be the people that would play HLE someday, or is this wrong??

>All that ever succeeds in doing is getting great programmers to leave the emu-community, I've seen it way too many times over the last four or so years.

Ha, I could say that Sardu isnīt a RealityMan. Why? Before his job at EA, he released all his emulators *as they are* as "xx.xx" versions. Very nice.

>A bunch of people that cry and cry that contribute absolutely nothing to the community (...) without having to hear from a bunch of (I hate to use the term as it seems cliche, but it is what you all are) lamers.

Bah, nobody is "crying", except you.
Is anyone crying here? Huh? :-)

"Lamer" is someone that pirates software and send it with viruses, not the case.

He doesn't gain anything whether people play it or not, in fact the only thing he gets is headaches from people asking why this game don't work and stuff like that.

The big difference here is Sardu didn't quit because he got tired of putting up with everyone, he quit because he had to. If anyone has been paying the slightest bit of attention since RM resurfaced they would have realized that this kind of stuff would cause him to quit. Why should he release something he feels isn't ready to be released, that would only lead to more morons mailing him with stupid questions. I only wish RM would post some of the idiots e-mails to him like romlist used to do (maybe you should start doing this too Jose, I always got a kick outta that).

I'm not crying, I don't think the modern consoles should be emulated. But I have never used UltraHLE or any of the other N64 emu's and don't even get me started on the dreamcast emulator.

In the emu-community a lamer is also somebody who whines about releases or lack of releases and also begs for roms (right Jose :) )

From:
If he had of released something, then people would not be hassling him, now would they ? It's like anybody else who puts themselves in the spotlight for everyone to see, and then does something to piss the people off watching.

If he didn't have to do it for us, then how come he didn't just do it in private ? In private you can do just as well, and not get any flames. That, and you don't owe anybody anything. Isn't that pretty much how the first release was done ? So, Reality Man chose to go the public route and make promises and allusions as he went along. Then when he just spits out that the thing is far off from being done when everybody had been told that a release was getting close, he gets a public reaction. No surprise here. It would actually be 'abnormal' if there was no reaction.

Anybody who puts themselves in the spotlight, starts telling everyone what he is gonna do, and then doesn't follow through is fully open for criticism (hard work and good programmer excuses aside). Any public figure who does that 'fully' deserves the backlash, I don't care who it is. And backlash there will be.

You guys sticking up for RM over this debacle are a bunch of butt kissers. If I came out with a fake emulator (not to say RM's is fake) and lots of hype, and then pack it in after a long period when people start making criticism, you guys would still be defending it. How do I know ? Cause I have seen it happen many times before, not just with emus. You are the exact people PT Barnum spoke about.

We are not at all buttkissers. You're forgetting that almost all public figures that would get criticized are paid for the work they promise, RM does not. If you made an emu & then heard ppl bitchin' about it when it was free and all they had to do was download it, wouldn't you be pissed? Most would. Wouldn't you say that it was better having that 1 release than having no UltraHLE at all? Maybe it could go open source and others could work on it. Remember, this emu came out when N64 was still in its prime.
