I can put in a few hours of work and get literal cheers, or I can put in a hundred hours of work and get told "but MAME is better". Sorry, no matter how many individual kudos I get (and I do appreciate), the fact is that message is published across the internet. There's even a published book that tells people to download my emulator to get ROMs for MAME. That is something I can never overcome. (Although Retroarch someday will probably overcome MAME, it's becoming dominant...) There's not really much wrong with Classic99 as it stands. V4 was created to try and address the cross-platform requests and try a cleaner architecture based on experience. It works, the architecture is much nicer, but now that it's proven I don't feel too excited about putting myself back several years... Especially the debugger, the biggest strength of the tool, is much harder on a cross-platform approach. Programming Classic99 for Windows was my relaxation code, because Windows coding is notably simpler and more reliable than most other APIs. I won't fight you* on that point or even elaborate. I have decades of experience on several, professional and hobby. Only one I can't speak deeply to is Mac, but I didn't like what I saw. As an aside, I looked at the Retroarch API. I don't really like it enough to embrace it either. It's just burnout, really. Letting my brain work on something that isn't code is a good reset. I'll fix all my timing when I win the lotto!
