Bannister Emulator Enhancer, Modeler Update, Taking Time Off
11:28 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story
In his latest post on his news page at bannister.org, Richard Bannister made some important announcements.
The first was to announce the release of a new version of his Emulator Enhancer, a shareware add-on that gives additional video and control options to many of his freely available emulators. This update brings Emulator Enhancer to version 1.5.4, and features enhanced joystick code.
The second announcement was the release of an updated version of Modeler, a Sega System 32 and Model 1 arcade emulator. The new version is at 0.9.4, which adds support for the game Outrunners, among others.
The third, and most unfortunate announcement is that Richard is going to be taking some time off. Here is what he had to say about the situation:
One of the joys of working on Emulation Projects is frequent nuisance e-mails. I have been receiving these for years, and keep an archive of them ready for eventual addition to my web page. Of late, though, these have been supplemented by some very offensive and hurtful comments, both in private mail and on public message boards. With a little more sleep and time to myself, I probably would have brushed these off, but to be frank, they have hit home. After long days in the office, I've come home to messages that have instantly left me in a bad humour. Though normally calm, I've become short tempered and irate, both online, and, I'm sorry to say, in real life.We can only hope that Richard will come back to the Macintosh emulation community after some well-deserved rest. Head over to bannister.org for more information on Richard's numerous emulation projects.
This should not be interpreted as a reaction to any one message or post. It is very much a cumulative thing that has been building for most of the last year.
I have decided that I need some time off from my Emulation projects and from all the baggage that goes with them.
