Great, it's looking good.

Ok still empty as of now, but we'll see. I know that would be a lot of work - but just in case you are stumbling across interesting older threads that seem suitable for that new category, you could move them there, to help start filling it. I know I know ... a lot of work, but it's just an idea. Maybe the people here in the board would also make a suggestion here or there to move this or that thread here.

Thank you so much!

PS: Be sure that I do send you a donation to the board, instead of a beer!
PPS: I found some unfinished soundtrakker work that I will try to complete to have a contribution to the new board section.

However, people here will probably be more willing to help you if they know you.
There was a similar discussion just recently.

Thank you for you honest answer. And you are right, definitely.
But I do not want to refer to a history of high and low scores of what I did in the past - for sure there were things I still am a little fond of, but there are also enough other things that today I find questionable.

So forget the history, it might be harder to find people wanting to work with someone unknown, but I find that more appealing. If hopefully only seldom something shines through - then sorry, I'm only human. Still, I have a bit of experience here and there, and I find it natural to give help in order to receive any.

Games / Re: Everything looks better in scanlines!

That certainly would be an overkill :) I was just wondering because there was a talk earlier of incorporating it in some existing emulator.

In any case, you can already achieve similar effect using existing shaders in Retroarch or ShaderGlass


Yeah, these are things I might have a look into at some point. The code I had was very picky about the exact resolution it was rendering at and didn't work at all well on anything less than a 4K screen so it would still be a fair old bit of effort to make it functional.


But running it over a pre-recorded segment of Burnin' Rubber did look really nice, much more so than generic scanlines etc or basic blurring effects that some emulators seem to use. Things like the shadow under the car looked "right" and other things like Mode 2 text had that nice bleeding effect you see on a genuine monitor.

Speaking about the business model; I'm no expert in reading financial statements but things don't quite look rosy to me...

What bothers me about the service is they keep changing their business model, but not tackling the underlying issues (performance & interface).
That really sends the wrong message to potential users...

I wonder what their demographic is. Because despite all the talk, I doubt you'll find many 'casual', 'new' retro players. This would leave 'traditional' retroheads like us who want... What? Leaderboards?

THE OFFICIAL POSITION
of, erm, myself **

I think Antstream is turning out to be, how can I put this.... Quite divisive!


It's no great secret that I really disagree with the Antstream business model. and the laggyness and graphical losses to me are a total deal breaker. Gimme real hardware - and failing that an FPGA solution.... or a well coded traditional emulator as a last resort. I have all 3 for various machines and all of them are usable. IMHO Antstream is not in it's current form.
