As a hack developer myself, not that your a hack :), I usually don't ask this but since I kind of collect VB stuff now and there really isn't a great emulator available I will ask. What is the projected release? Are we talking weeks, months or a year or two? Feel free to give me the normal response of "when its ready"

Thanks,
John

Also, as far as I/O is concerned, I see that Reality Boy supports controllers hooked to external port such as com and lpt ports. Be aware the the gentelman at this site, http://www.sealiecomputing.com/retrozone/index.html, is making me a USB chip.conversion for the original VB controller. It will be seen as a Windows device and hence will require Direct Input code in the emulator.

Just an FYI,
John

Could someone explain to a VB n00b what this port is/was intended for?

Thanks,
John

You said in another post about your new emu that you were open to suggestions. Here are mine. Many of us run the emulators in a cabinet and use a front end. Personally I use MameWAH. To be truly cabinet friendly an emu requires a few things.

The ability to remap ALL the keys
Exit with the ESC key (or the ability to map your own exit key)
The ability to receive a rom name as a commandline parameter and launch full screen.
The ability to exit with a single key press (Escape)

Also nice would be the ability to either handle keyboard input(cabinet control panel) and/or a gamepad simultanously. Very few due this now. ZSNES for Super Nintendo comes to mind.

That's all I can think of for now. Good luck in your development cycle.
