DreamChess status update - developer wanted

Post by Phantom » Mon Oct 29, 2007 11:20 am

MrSiggler and I have decided to stop development of the DC port of DreamChess. It takes a lot of effort to keep the DC port in line with the Windows and Linux versions, while only a very small percentage of our users are DC users.

This means that there will be no further DC releases of DreamChess, unless someone is willing to take over the port.

Developing for DC was fun, but now it's time to move on...

This is yet another one of those times that I wish I could say that I'd take over the project. But, as I've demonstrated, I really don't even have the time to devote to my own projects as it is.

I sincerely hope that someone will be able to step up to help out, otherwise I might just be forced to. I'd hate to see DreamChess not support the Dreamcast any more.
