I find it funny that others are bitching about open-source on EmuTalk.
I mean, from the perspective that you bother to release updated versions of your software for people to upgrade, it's selfish that you leave them closed source, but it's not selfish from the perspective that you don't open-source any versions because you haven't even created or released them? I mean, I don't get it, lol.
True, the better you make your plugin, the more everyone else stands to gain from it being open-source to the teamwork of a different author, but not once have I seen anyone ask to be released the source of any modern emulator, who knew the first thing about emulation science or algorithms, anyway. They're just general software religiots that make programming a religion.
Why, just the other month, when I started working on my own controller plugin using zilmar's 1.1 specs (btw wondering why nobody used those), the first thing I hear from this one pothead, is, dude!! You should open-source it. It's like, you tell someone you're working on an unknown DLL for an unknown program, and the very first reaction is open-source. Actually my plugin is open-source atm, but just the assumption that I hadn't open-sourced it was enough proof that the lardass didn't have the initiative to make use of that himself.
Everybody a-knows !! that it's better teamwork philosophy to make software open-source, but it has nothing to do with emulation or non-common-sense things that people don't already know. If there were less fatasses in the emulation scene browsing the interwebz and doing nothing for emulation but posting news and mirroring software uploads or meddling with the packaging all the time, praying for almost worthless things like 64-bit releases or x86 assembly rewrites, and assuming that emulation revolves all around their experience of it and not the scientist's task of challenging himself to writing it, there would probably be less people afraid to additionally open-source their emulators and plugins as well at risk of a bunch of foreign dudes plastering their names and things that take no work, like Kaillera, over someone's work.
I'm not afraid of it, personally. That's why my stuff up until now has been open-source, but there's equal reason given that the people who bitch about it aren't in the position to bitch about it.
Asking for you, yourself to have the source can be reasonable, but just asking for the general public to have access to something to entertain you is bullshit. Play the actual console if you need entertainment.
