What do you all have to lose?

So you are willing to emulate a pipelined CPU well, plus vector processor, plus gfx chip with tons of programmability?

What could possibily be added to to?
* framebuffer notification for HLE video crap
* pure PIF2 emulation
* better timing
* more optimized code via SSE3 for the RSP
* the removal of plugins
* etc....

Trust me, you are in for a world of hurt if you manage to pull all that off. Especially with the current state the source is in ;)

Indeed, and the reason we know this..... well we somehow ended up in possession of the source, Zilmar has been informed that certain peoples are handing out the source without permission.

Another thing would be working out proper timing, rather than this Counter Factor stuff....

Course, proper timing would up the sys reqs and stuff....

Which aren't that horrible anyway

suppose, though there is some glaring issues with no connection to accuracy.

like overall style. but i guess its common in projects. pj64 1.4 had the same issue.

You don't always have to accept people's patches... you can tweak them or reject them outright, entirely your choice. Open source doesn't need to be a free-for-all.

I can recommend Git as a good version control system (though not too beginner-friendly), and GitHub is also pretty darn good when it comes to managing/sharing/controlling access to/accepting patches to/tracking bugs for repositories. I can't post links as I registered to post this, but try them out - they're the first hit for both on google (though I know google's results can vary between people/locations).

Git causes nothing but trouble.

Do you really want people making forks of forks of forks, and then people distributing tons of different versions of essentially the same shit?
