Well, first of all, I didn't expect Nishi or ASCII to come out with an MSX emulator. The fact that they did, although it's based on fmsx source code, shows some commitment.

It okay to be critical, but let us not burn initiatives to the ground.

The poll that asks "what do you think about the emulator" is in my opinion not a good poll. That would be the same if someone asks: what do you think about the Microsoft Wistler Beta". Response would be that you have seen better Windows operation systems already released.

The emulator spreaded is just one of the first builds. Compare it with the first MSX emulators. Those were even worse.

ASCI,I who is probably committed to develop a good emulator for intent, should be celebrated.

And let us not forget that intent is also still in development.

Wow.. So now we even have to thank Mr. Nishi for .MP3 and .MPEG-1??? Well, his ego is getting bigger by the minute!!!

He said something like this in Tilburg (april) too, but nobody seemed to pay attention to it. As far as I know all the MPEG formats (1, 2, 3 etc) are invented in some laboratory. But maybe Nishi once thought of a similar system and feels that it is still his idea. Anyways... let's see if he can give us MSX player and MSX server (which should have been online by now, shouldn't it?)

Indeed, it should have been...

As for the Player: It's just a slightly adapted fMSX version, so nothing big... Especially not from ASCII's side. And as for the rest: I understood Nishi has left ASCII, so it kind of makes me wonder how this will affect the "MSX Revival"...

Sander wondered that himself too Smile

see this thread from some time ago:

www.msx.org/forum_contents.asp?TopicID=22

Note:

Also this thread actually should have been in the MSX revival forum. Grauw is working on the move topic code. When it's finished this topic will be moved to that forum. ;)

Ehm...

1. Agreed..

2. Agreed..

3. Special Advisor? Isn't that like: Well, we want to get rid of you, but we will call you "Special Advisor", as simply sacking you looks so bad...

And as for the "one big ego-trip", Yes, I think it is... If I read the other reports from Nishi, I get the idea that we have to thank him personally for the complete computer-revolution.

Well,

It's better if I not give my opinion. I've been told too many times it is "a bit" to negative...
