As I said, competition is healthy. You've made me do some proper work on Nestopia for the first time in weeks. Nice one!

The first four are good - the last will confuse users still I suspect.

I would like to keep the name "Nestopia" in the name, so it can identify back with the project...NestopiaX?

I don't know if NestoppiaX is easily confused with Bannister's port. People might see the X as a version indicator (i.e. OSX native / Cocoa) and not recognize it as a separate build.

From the earlier suggestions, I like OpenNestopia, for it best describes how the project differs from the other build - it's the open source variant. Also, having the name variation at the beginning instead of at the end will help establish the project as being separate. My opinion here - take it for what it's worth.


"Last version was better," says Floyd. "More bugs. Bugs make game fun."

Yeah, I'd agree with that to be honest. I'd go for something like OpenNestopia or FreeNestopia.

Well, if you want to get technical it's the GPL version that should be just "NEStopia" and Bannister's version that should have the clever alternate name, although that would likely confuse people even worse :-)

I was thinking the same thing :P But he WAS here first smile

OpenNestopia works for the time being.

I'll hopefully have a preview release ready by the end of the day. I need to learn CoreAudio.
