Oh look, Uman posts another antagonistic message directed at me. Third time now, Uman. It's becoming an obsession. Surprise surprise. All that's left is for you to post in response to this that it was *I* who was posting in an antagonistic manner, and we have the complete set.
Sadly it turns out this board doesn't have an IGNORE function. If it did, I'd of happily put you on it. Frankly, I can assure you that I care far less about what you think than you do about what I think. You're irrelevant. I don't care who you are, or what you've contributed. I'll gladly thank Mame devs for their work - but be assured my intent is to exclude you from that blanket statement. You're simply an entitled, dictatorial asshole, who falls back to accusing others of being what you ought to see in the mirror. Such is life.
It's quite lame how you just ignore the myriad, "imo" and "In my opinion" comments in my posts. For example, I wrote this: "At the end of the day it's all about people having the choice to use whatever they want. No-one is forced to use any feature or filter - so it's really the best of all worlds." That ought to tell any mature, normal headed person, that I accept people have different views and opinions. Sadly though, it doesn't leave you much room to be an asshole, so i guess that's why you ignore it.
And yes, you have your opinion and it differs from mine. Whoop-de-woo! Roll out the bunting! Crack the champagne! God has spoken! Should we start carving your words into stone now, or do you have some more bullsh*t to write before we get started?
I have no issue at all with people not sharing my opinion. You do. I think I'll leave that problem to you, because frankly, you're beyond redemption.
As for "be happy the devs have the mercy". Whoa, you have an amazingly inflated ego, don't you? Seriously, you're ill. I'm happy a dev saw sense, and provided options. I expect they did it out a desire for people to have a choice, or simply wanted the feature themselves. They didn't do it for cavemen like yourself. Just don't use it. But don't expect me to go worship at their altar. I've thanked them, and that's enough. That is the very essence of freeware - of a community where people share. Lost on you, of course.
Let's face it - if you and every other developer stopped working on Mame tomorrow - I'd be perfectly happy. It wouldn't affect me in the slightest. I have several frontends that offer everything I want. I have every BIOS and game I want. I'm happy with them precisely as they are. So, go ahead and do whatever you want. Or even, don't do things - so what? You think I'm going to get bent out of shape over it? Jog on.
Schizophrenic answers? You so lack self-awareness that you really don't see the irony in your writing that, do you? Having read your posts over the last few days, I don't think you ought to be using terms associated with mental illness.
As for the quotes you highlighted, they're not at all Schizophrenic. Rather, you're just trying to read the most negative connotation into what I'm writing so you can write something nasty. Life isn't black and white, it's shades of gray.
On 2600 emulation I wrote: "There are some good emulators out there, for day to day game playing, they're more than adequate." along with, "But I accept that when I dig out my
original hardware, plug in the cartridge, and play.... well, that's on a different level."
Nothing contradictory there, nothing schizophrenic.
In the next paragraph you quoted well, a normal individual with even basic social skills will have no trouble deriving my meaning. I stand by it, because it's my opinion. There's nothing at all contradictory in that either.
Finally you write: "even dont have the nerves to understand why people still love their CRT".
This perfectly illustrates the lengths you will go to generate angst for no good end. Where have I, in any way, said I'm annoyed, upset, concerned, bothered, or troubled by people wanting a CRT experience?
I wrote: "I can truly appreciate the effort's people put into Scanlines and shadow masks, it's a real labor of love for some. And sometimes I see (and have used) some of their settings - and true enough, my LED monitor looks like an old CRT."
" It stands to reason that those who want to replicate CRT's will not like it, but that just means they don't enjoy it that way - they're not more "right" or correct in their choice, just different."
Please explain how these comments in any way denigrate CRT's, or people who want to play on CRT's, or emulate them. Take your time.
And - to be honest - it would be better via PM, because once again you're polluting a thread with your unnecessarily antagonistic attitude. Let's face it, if I were to consider contributing time or money to Mame development, I'd not do it. There is no way I'd contribute to anything that you have a connection to. You just stain the entire Mame development effort, imo. Sad, but true. You must be a very good coder, because honestly, I don't imagine anyone would keep you around for anything else. IMO.
Now I'm going to go use your code to play games with HQ3x. Live with it.
