Default Project64 on Patreon

I have had different people suggest I should be using Patreon, so I decided to check it out and see how it goes.

http://www.patreon.com/Project64

This might be a good way to allow better feedback and direct more what I work on.

What do you think? Anything I should do differently?

Thanks in advance!

I think your site needs to address the issues that PJ already has. Where is a road map?

64bit?
Updated zilmar spec?
Netplay?
Debugger?
Cheat engine?
Accuracy?
Timing?
ect. ..

Just found this post about the Patreon and I'm now donating a very generous $1 every month.

Don't know squat about coding, ect. I'll just jump on the bandwagon of what theboy181 is saying.

I keep checking back now and then, but tho you guys have done a great job with the emulator, updates itself seem none existent.

I think last time i re downloaded PJ64 the program itself had slight changes but that was only to put a block on the program, if i remember correctly it was something relating to a delay using it unless you paid.

The emulator itself the "core" doesnt seem to have changed, games play the same as they did many years ago, games that wouldnt play havent had any updates to the plugins to try emulate it.

I know as new systems come out people work towards them, but when you get the likes of Dolphin that plays GC games decently and Wii U.

It makes me wonder why people dont work on older systems anymore given that hardware has come along way since so new things could be done to improve the emulator.

PCSXe is another, I find if plugins could be recoded to take advantage of todays hardware we could see improvements.

One thing i dont get with PJ64 is using the default plugin I cant play when casting it to my tv, yet using glide plugin it works great, jabo the frame rate drops heavily.

A lot has improved in the past few years. Game compatibility has improved and so has the performance. Even audio improved for some games at least. I wouldn't even consider going back to older versions of Project 64, for normal gameplay.

Maybe more can be done to improve news and changes. This site needs to be redone, but I have been focused on improving things in the code over the site.

you can see there that there has been a lot of work done in the last two years.

A lot of work has also been done to make sure things still work similar and work well.

What would you like to see or how would you know things are different the way you want?

New developers do tend to go to new systems, but I have been working a long time on Project64.
