Well, better late than never, right? I was too busyyesterday, and the MAME release obviously took some timeaway from my schedule, but who's complaining? We got 6new games, not to mention Slapstic fixings that enabledalready supported games into working better. It was anawesome release, and kudos to Nicola and the gang justfor that. But if it's Rumors you're looking for, you'vefound the right place, as I will tell you some of the infoTeam Spy has gotten just for me.
|The Rumor Mill - June 24,1999 by JoseQ
Well, the first feathered member of Team Spy alreadygot me the info for the Rumor Mill regarding HiVE beingon hold for a while, so if you read anticupid's Rumor ReView,you already know about that, but just thought I wouldremind you. So expect the next release to be quite sometime away, and of course, you can count on me to rumorizeas soon as I find out it's coming back.
Speaking on fast emulators, I've heard from my Retrocadededicated bird, that a new feature coming soon to thisemulator is screen rotation. And you know how these guysalways like to do it in a nice way, my bird is almostcertain that it saw the screen rotation happening on thefly. That is certainly a feature that many people willenjoy.
On what is definitely a more interesting topic forthose of you who like newer games, I finally got one ofmy spies to find the Sega System32 emu hidden base, andsome new info surfaced right away. It seems that theemulator has been making good progress as my spy got aglimpse of the character selection screen on "GoldenAxe 2". The author seems to be working on the controllerfunctionality now. Something you will not be surprised toknow is that with instruction interpretation, the emulatorwill perform rather slowly. Dynamic Recompilation is apossibility with this emulator, but it will most likelynot be implemented until further iterations of the emulator.
Well, that is probably it for now, since many of mybirds came home with a 'no progress' sign hanging fromtheir necks. And who writes those signs I ask myself...Anyways, get ready for an interesting rest of the week, andmore than likely, one hell of a weekend. One last shortrumor... InterViews are making a comeback!
