I dont know how we all missed this, or whether Extrems has been keeping February’s builds under his hat until now, but this is great progress!
I also read over there that since Ingpereira’s fantastic work on dynarec for PS3, emu_kidid (emulatemii) made a few posts regarding this:
well we didn’t make it before march, I’m going to be mostly offline for about 45 days, so shortly has become a whole lot longer. that’s real life for you…
I’m going to be away from the next few days until mid to late April as I’m going on a trip to the states after my wedding to see all the tourist destinations my heart desires
The site will be at the whim of the moderators until I’m back, so play nice
I’ll try to check up on the site whenever I can via free WiFi, but when I’m back I’ll be motivated to get back and do some solid GameCube development
Exciting news indeed!
