Oh and Frost, I have come to think that you perhaps genuinely believe that your friend has written this emulator. If so I suppose we seemed a bit harsh. But know that your 'friend' (and I will say he doesn't seem like much of a friend) has either a)plugged his dreamcast into his PC, or b. was playing SFAIII and you got genuinely confused. If it is the case that you honestly did think that your friend wrote this emulator I'd hate to think that you're gonna stop coming here because of this nastiness. but if you are lying, then use this as an example of what happens when you post bs like this on a serious emulation forum . <--he he, you got ninja'd.
Also, in the 0.00001% chance that your friend HAS written a cps3 emulator, know that he is what is wrong with the emulation scene. I remember reading pages of info about before cps-2 emulation was cracked, and there was a genuine feeling that the "l33t" in the scene were playing cps2 games well before publically released emulators are available. It was actually a dig about a certain well known rom dumper (not the Guru). If this was true, it is against the "spirit of emulation". Admittedly, emulator writers would get sick of reading a thousand GIMME ROMS D00D posts a week, but anyone who would post anything such as asking for roms or bios's on official emulator message boards shouldn't (yet) be considered part of the emulation scene, and will prob get banned from those forums pretty quickly. Look how quickly dolphin got released, and conversely icarus has had 4 years without a single public release, and yet both of those emulators are well-known to emulation-fanatics, and further releases are eagerly anticipated, by people genuinely interested in seeing different hardware emulated on your pc, not just the "GIMME ROMS D00D" lam0rs. Anyone who is truly part of the "emulation scene" would regard something like cps3 emulation as important enough to share with the community, if for no other reason than the interest in furthering emulation progress. And if he truly were a friend, he'd at least give you the emulator (or is he maybe not doing that because he is LYING??? )
<ALTHOugh, i as with all of you DC++ users have probably found people sharing cps3/naomi roms. The excuse was always "people are collecting them now so they don't have to when the emulators come out, but perhaps there
s been a cps3 emulator for ages, but only the "uber-l33t" know about it. Can someone say conspiracy? ....... >
I'm sorry if this post was long and rambling and didn't make much sense, but I'm home from uni with the flu so i'm probably not making much sense at the moment.
