I'm not being overly negative, I'm being realistic. Developers have lost interest in maintaining Supermodel, and without active development these kinds of projects die. If you want to keep using current Supermodel that's fine, but you can't expect any support or updates. Being stuck on a dead platform isn't much fun after a while.

Neither of them have expressed interest in improving Supermodel further, and this kind of borderline begging is more likely to turn them off working on either project. Code can't be copied between projects so they'd be doing the work all over again. That's not fun.

Well if you're dead set on using Supermodel, you'll be using the current version. You need to adjust your expectations, and think about the impact your attitude of entitlement will have on the developers' motivation to work on either emulator.
