The IRC logs were spread quite widely a few months back, nobody cared, it does what people want it to do, that's all they care about.

Again, it was quite well publicised that the people writing these current gen closed-source emulators are getting about $30,000 a month for it, for work that is ultimately going to need to be redone properly later. Again nobody cares, you highlight it to people and they're more likely to start donating than anything else it seems. It does what people want, that's all they care about.

Common theme here...

As I've said in an earlier post, the emulation community has severely regressed in recent years, it's become all about who can make what from it, while the people supporting it couldn't care less about anything other than their own needs either.
