In an unfortunate (but not unexpected) turn of events, my favorite Dreamcast emulator "NullDC" has been discontinued by the original authors.

Changes - nulldc - Project Hosting on Google Code

It has been an interesting ride, giving a meaning to the sad excuse some of the past years were. But as time passes, things change.

I hope this will be useful to the community, one way or the other

*edit*
For those lusting for a binary release, you can look @ http://code.google.com/p/nulldc/downloads/list

The source can be found here: http://code.google.com/p/nulldc/

The source is old. Most of it dates back to 2006, with large parts from 2005 or
2004. There are MANY typos all over the place. There is no uniform coding style
(nullDC was my first project using C/C++, and it began as a C# project)

Most of the code is written by me, parts of it are written by ZeZu, and maby
others (?). Psyman was our main tester during all these years (With various
others joining for short time periods) and he's slowly getting into editing the
source to fix bugs ( as i no longer do it myself).

Yes, the code is ugly, hacky, buggy and often just plain wrong -- but still
better than not released, righty ?

I hope this is as much help to others as it has been to me

Also, the full source hasn't been released yet; and what has been released has only been out for a few days.

really! It just came out? so there is hope for someone to uptake the project. And for the person saying shitty code... Even though its old, outdated emu. it still runs game petty well. I hate people dissing other works, when they cant surpass them.
