Not discontinued. I'm merging EmuCon frontend (console/computer emulators) into Emu Loader .
It took me many months to port EmuCon features into EL, but there's still A LOT of work to do.
You'll be able to use WinUAE to play Amiga games, Stella to play Atari2600 games, BlueMSX to play MSX1/2/2+/Turbo-R games, WinVICE to play Commodore 64 games and many more.
I can't release a new EL build because of this, unless I make a public "BETA build" for testing... perhaps this might be a solution.
The arcade part of the frontend still works independently from the console/computer systems, even with all the changes to support emulators from EmuCon frontend.
You can use latest official EL with latest MAME builds, no problem. You just can't change MAME settings with the frontend, that's all.
When MAME 0.189 is out, then I guess I'm gonna have to do something about it.
But a few months ago I had an accident and I'm still recovering... two tendons of my right shoulder rotator cuff. Still doing physical therapy but I've started working on Emu Loader again about 10 days ago.
Patience is your friend.
