:?: This is my first post but I've been lurking around reading for a long time now.

Anyway, I just wanted to ask a question about this Blur thing. Wouldn't it be easier to emulate specific games instead of the whole system, kinda like the way Bleem! (RIP) did it? I mean, no one is asking for enhanced graphics, but maybe just specific games working at 100% would be better then a full blown emulator working at 30% with no sound. Is it easier to do this, or it really don't make a difference anyway. And does asnyone agree with me on this...?

And no, I'm not doubting any of the programmers abilities or nuthin like that. :oops: [/b]

Yes but that would cause more legal issues i guess and it would also cause a lot of people to waste tons of cd-rs... heck i have about 30 sitting next to my DC...

Exactly. If its such a waste, then don't burn it. Straight up.

Anyway, no one answered my question yet... :evil: Would it be easier and better to make game specific emulators, aside from legal issues, which I think were resolved anyway, cuz Bleem WAS allowed to emulate thing eventually, it was all the money spent fighting for that right that killed them, and Sony threatening... i drifted off :lol:

What do you all think? And what games would you ask to be made specifically in a PSone emulator?

it wouldn't just be easier, it would be the only way if you wanted close up to 100% speed.

no legal problems

Post by dc^dude » Tue Feb 05, 2002 10:17 pm

This project is NOT illegal. Even if sony tried to stop us. they wouldnt know where to find us.

1. We all have fake names.

2. We use LEGAL libraries

3. By the time they find a way to get us into court, the emu will run pretty well and everyone will have the source :)

4. Sony cant ctop us and we know it!

5. We all live in different places.

You might ask, what about the ip's on the blur msg board? Well, they have no right to invade our computers without getting permission from the fbi and that will take a while to do!

(to Hasney, regarding his last post)

I got a bit carried away with the whole "god" metaphor that I slipped up my analogy. I do not have any scientific evidence that Blur does not exist... although I don't REALLY have any that it does either...

Anyway... I'm not trying to offend anyone or ruin the project... I'm just a doubter.

I don't think there are more legal issues at work here than there already is in...say... DreamSNES or SMEG.

(why don't we have a "pointless legal debate' forum? ;)

Yeah, that's Geocities for you! The pic in my signature is from my "links" page and is a link to my own site. You have to visit my links page on my site before you visit here.

*thinks about it*

I think I know how to fix it...

(please don't classify this as 'off-topic'... I'll talk about Blur again in a sec... honest! ;) )

(EDIT: I see the pic now... what about you?)

*ahem*

Anyway... the pre-alpha of Blur is out now, with an update expected any time now...

That's a serious development, isn't it?

Hasn't anyone got their "Beta" version yet? :?

Im just thinking FUCK IT now. The ID can easily be patched to make it the same ID as a testers DC, so im dithcing the ID code in favour of Nyarlathoeps one.
