Where do these spats take place? Clearly not in the SGDK sub forum!

I'll take over hosting of spritesmind if you ever get sick of it, KanedaFr. Wouldn't bother me a bit. I've got a few other servers online for various reasons and the hosting fees wouldn't be a problem for me.

I have worked with other users in SpritesMind on projects. A hardware project and not a game, but it was just as fun.

Maybe I'm a bit late to join, but this place has been incredibly helpful to me. All of the old posts and data/info re MD emulation and the intricacies of such... well, I'd hate to see it go away!
It might not be the most active forum in the universe, but I do like to check it several times a day.

best regards,

And what's the result?
To be or not to be?

For me SM is best place for Sega MD/GEN on net.Forum,emulator,graphics tools.

Better question should be: "Future of MD/GEN".
There are millions of fans that didnt know that homebrew stuff and diy hw exist.They are playing old games...
Magazine will be fine.PDF or paper.Also game distribution.Some kind of wifi/ethernet flashcart+webshop like steam will makes sense in future.
Another cool stuff will be game editor for PC with simple script.Simply tool for 2D games...With bin,rom export.Easy for beginners.So 100 of new games will be here every year.Like game maker...

Yay... hundreds of pong and tanks games. :lol:

Making games easy to make doesn't mean any more games worth playing than if they're hard(er) to make. It just means dozens of pong games that use fart sounds instead of boop-beep. Besides, there's already a program that makes it simple to make 32X visual novel games, and we haven't seen a flood of games. Even when it's easy to make a game, that doesn't mean it's EASY to make a game. Games still require a lot of work... unless you're just adding fart sounds to pong.

Just moved to a new house (1800 miles from the last). Still getting settled, but I am here. :D

And just because I don't think there will be lots of new games is no reason NOT to make it easier to make games. I'm just saying that one shouldn't expect tons of good games simply because it's easier to make games. I'd be happy if making it easier to make games resulted in a scant handful of good games. Maybe pong with fart sounds... :lol:
