The Rumor Mill - February 17, '99 by JoseQ
As you know, today is wednesday, and time once again for The Rumor Mill at EmuViews. I gotta admit, this week has been a very busy one for me, and I have scarce rumors for you today, still I've got some hot ones and continuations on some of the rumors previously posted here. It feels nice to note that both the MAME and Retrocade predictions from last week became true over the weekend and the RockNES one as well. So here's the rumors for this week.
Initially, there is a rumor mentioned at Arcade @ Home where they state that MAME is in preliminary talks with a company to put MAME inside arcade machines. Although I can confirm this rumor, I feel this is very unlikely to happen for many reasons. So chances on this go from slim to none. Not that it is not a great idea, but will probably not materialize. More on that as it develops.
Here's an interesting one. Gameboy 98 development has been slowed down due to numerous inconveniences that the author has faced at the moment. However, there will probably be a release a little over a month from now with a built-in debugger, more DirectX support, and joystick support. This comes from a very reliable source, so if the author stops facing problems, this rumor is bound to become reality.
On the System16 front, it appears that development has also slow down for these guys. However, there is word about a sprite ripper for the game as well as enabling two secret levels in one of the more popular games that this emulator plays. Interesting huh? More on that soon!
Remember that I mentioned there was another keyboard trick you could do with shark. Well this is no rumor, I'm simply telling you what it is. If you want to enable save/load game feature in the emulator, simply type OLLEGOOP and these two new options will appear in the menu! Enjoy!
Well, I guess this is all I have for this week's edition. Outlook on emulators? There will not be a whole lot of releases this week. RockNES will be out in a few days, Retrocade may or may not, but I'm thinking it'll be more than a week for that to happen. Hopefully some more will surface pretty soon. I will be trying to get a couple of InterViews in the meantime so that you get stuff to read. Thanks for reading this weeks edition of the Rumor Mill!
