Seriously ?! Not participating in emulation discussion ? You must be kidding, it seems you even forgot some of *your* posts where I answered you some years ago with some problems you had in Steem.
Is that not participating in emulation :
- I helped IFW / kryolfux team to improve the support for WD1772 CTR/IPF emulation, spending dozens of hours doing tests on my STF and exchanging lots of email with him during several months. With This, Hatari was the first ST emulator that supported CTR/IPF and you benefited from all the work that was made when adding this in Steem.
- Hatari documents all of the finding that were made to improve emulation, just look at the source code I think it's very detailled (but you already did, since at one time you ripped entire parts of Hatari to put them into Steem, not asking us before and most of all, not respecting the GPL)
- We used WinUAE cpu core in Hatari ; while doing so, I reported several bugs/fixes to Toni so he could backport them into WinUAE. And guess what ? My name is not credited, neither is Hatari. And you know what ? I don't care, maybe you see this as an ego contest, I see this as the followup to the time 20 years ago where we were all in the demoscene and made a lot of friends there (but maybe you didn't know that time)
- As Troed told, we also swapped a lot of emails regarding video emulation. His work on documentating the video timings is really valuable and he will be credited in next Hatari version.
- Several people in Hatari are evolved in Emutos and provided code to it ; and several Emutos people are also reporting bugs/problems on Hatari mailing list to see where it comes from (sometimes it's an emulation problem in Hatari, sometimes Emutos is wrong (for example, we helped them fixing floppy drive detection code that was wrong before))
- Some code in Hatari regarding MMU/DSP came from other emulators, then it was improved, then the new code was backported to these emulators (Next emulator for example)
Now, OK, I admit I saw you reported 'a little bit of everything' as not working ; so I tried it under Hatari and it was fixed in less than 30 seconds, no need to look at steem's code. Do you want me to credit you just for that ? As you even say it was reported to you by someone else, without naming him.
The difference between you and me maybe : I don't brag about any new fix I had for such or such demo/game, claiming Steem to be the best emulator or first to support such or such effect. I don't have time for that.
As for crediting people, please have a look at doc/authors.txt : all people that participated by idea, small patches, reporting bugs, ... are there (and this also includes you AtariZoll, you're credited for the time we spent on microprose golf and for your useful opcode validator
). WinUAE is also credited. We also credit code from other projects.
Hatari team certainly never claimed that we found everything ourselves (even I think that Hatari has some unique accuracy features, based on hundreds of hours of tests I made on my STF/STE)
So, I don't see your point ; it seems that in many discussions over the years in this forum, you often feel offended for no real reason with different people (for example, I remember you were very upset because Steem was not mentioned on kryoflux page).
You made your point, I made mine, people will observe and decide what to think about this, let's move on ...
