Now THAT is cool. With any luck, closed-source MAMEhub and Kaillera will be permanently out of commission before long.
Hi guys, just to make it clear to everyone, CSMAME (client server MAME) and CSMESS have always been open source and freely available.
Same with the V1 MAMEHub GUI module, which simply calls the emulators, but does nothing to them directly (MAMEHub is not mame32 where the emulators are built in, they are separate entities), where the source was / used to be automatically downloaded to your computer via an automated SVN whenever the user ran it, that included the GUI module code.
MAMEHub V2 was released last year, and since November 13th 2012, Jason started to document MAMEHub in full. If have read his blog, a very detailed document is available explaining the mechanics of the whole system (in 3 parts).
Also behind the scenes he has been documenting the code in earnest, but due to his new job, he hasn't had any time to do it properly - but to be fair, this was mainly due to the code not being up to standard at the time, as V2 was a complete re-write of V1.
On Friday, MAMEHub's client GUI source code was released, and he has stated the server code is coming along soon.
Jason apologies for the delay to releasing the V2 part, he just wanted it to be "right", before release.
Back on topic, awesome progress by the way.
Granted, it could have been organised a lot better overall, including the new web site design.
It did not help that we switched from a wiki type site (where all the links were together on same page) to a more general site design, to make it more attractive to the masses.
