Nestopia 1.40 turns 2 today. Over the past two years I have sent Marty a couple emails with fixes that he should do, mostly to the cheat engine. I have also worked on my Nestopia Cheat Code Pack quite a bit. Come on Marty, don't let other emulators surpass this one!

well c0d3h4x0r is developing an "unofficial" or branched version of nestopia for windows and rbelmont has referred to a "new version" more than once so at the least i don't think the official linux port is totally dead.

but i have to agree, its always nice to see continued development!

Heh, and the Mac version doesn't exist? :P

The "official" Mac version is closed source crippleware - getting a license exemption like that isn't very endearing.

Wait, the leader of the Mac GUI Purity Squad is bitching about Richard's Mac-specific ports? It's either him or Qt, man.

Doesn't OpenEmu contain a source-available Mac port of Nestopia? I'm not objecting to the Mac-specific nature of Bannister ports - just the fact that he got a license exemption so he could make a crippled closed-source port that tries to sell you a "plugin" with more features.

Yeah, and you buy the plugin once and it works on something like 2 dozen emulators, all with consistent Mac-native UIs. That's a pretty good deal for a minority platform with fairly heavy processor and OS version fragmentation that appears to be in the process of slow starvation by it's maker.

...and this has what to do with the fact that the Nestopia core hasn't been updated in two years? Just curious...?

Anyway, those who wish to are more than welcome to create their own completely open source versions of the projects that I work on - as indeed the OpenEmu team have done. I welcome the competition; it breeds better software for us all. The fact that (for the most part) nobody has though speaks volumes.

Who talked with Marty?
Is the nestopia abandoned?

We haven't been able to get in contact with Marty. That's pretty much his standard operating procedure; you hear nothing for a year or so, and then there's a new NEStopia. It's just in this case it's gone longer than that.
