OK let me address this since you guys are quick to judge me as a begging, thankless fanboy:
Do you guys understand the difference between hoping for something, and downright asking for it? I never asked Bart or Ville directly to keep working on SuperModel......I said "I would like" and "I hope".....there is a difference. You guys are acting like I said "Oh Bart can you PLEASE continue Supermodel c'mon man it's not fair sniff ". I don't appreciate you interpreting my posts as begging or being a whining "fanboy".
I've been posting on Bart's forums as "Isamu" for years, and he knows damn well how much I appreciate his work and knows that I completely understand he is busy and can't work on the emulator for now. You guys need to stop assuming that every time a fan says they HOPE something happens or WOULD LIKE for something to happen, they are begging and feel disappointed if they don't get it. We are not begging for anything....we are just passionate fans of this gentlemen and there is nothing wrong with hoping something happens some day.
Is the California Lottery going to get offended if I run into one of their officials/representitives and tell them I hope to win the lottery someday? No. But if I go up to one of them and say "Hey Mr Lotto guy, can you PLEASE give me a winning lotto ticket, I'm an honest guy but I'm broke so I feel entitled to it, c'mon pretty please?" That is whining and begging. There is a difference.
Bart is a stand up guy and he knows I wish him nothing but the best. He knows that I'm extremely grateful for the emulator he's given us. Personally, my experience with the emulator has been nothing but gravy. Daytona 2 works, Scud Race works, and my force feedback steering wheel works just fine. Those are really the only two games I care about, and I really don't need anything else from Supermodel.
Again, I was just saying It would be nice *IF* someone somewhere down the line pick up from where he left off, just for the sake of completing the emulator one day. Even Bart HIMSELF said the same thing.
So c'mon guys, stop labeling people who are fans and occasionally throw words around like "I would like", it would be nice, or "I hope for someday", as beggars. It's kinda offensive. We are not 12yr olds.
