Default Project64 does not have long left to live.

True story, by Jabo.

Quote:
I've decided to release a patch to 1.6 that includes the majority of the plugin fixes from Project64 1.7 beta, and take a step away from the project.

I began actively working on Project64 again earlier this year, and was disappointed at the state of things. After going over 5 years, with no end in sight, the beta project became a bit silly to many. Most of the original team has left for different reasons over the years, and the community on the site has faded.

At the same time, I felt it would be irresponsible to the legacy of the project to keep important bug fixes in the beta permanently; the donations seem to go into a black hole now anyway.

Looking back it's been longer than I would care to admit, so many great memories and new friends. First, I want to thank the people who donated over the years, this emulator was a decade of ambitious work, knowing that people appreciated it and showed it really did matter to the team. There are too many people to thank individually, but special thanks to Gent, RadeonUser, Witten, and Smiff - you guys pushed the project forward in too many ways to mention, and truly defined my experience working on the project with you.

I am doing this independently of the project, it is not an official release.

Sad, but not surprising. At least it wasn't an ignominious death like no$gba. Martin is either dead, jailed for illicit activity or has gone into hiding. No$gba died a humiliating death. PJ64 will likely die a noble death. It's a good emulator, but it's a real shame it had to end up like this.

Project64 died an honourful death and at least Jabo explained why.

I think now is an appropriate time to release it as open-source so people can take off where he left off.

no. No open source. Let it lie where it is, the stuff of legends, before people take it as their own.

Kaillera, I'm looking at you (ಠ_ಠ)

I would like to see 1.7 released to the public - unfinished or not, just release it already >_>

So what happened to my $20? Just paid $20 to the dead devs? Really?

Dammit, I almost had devs working on 1.7 and finish it.......
