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

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
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!
