Oi!!

I've been busy lately mate

If you liked the Brian King interview then you should also read the Toni Wilen interview as he talks about future features in WinUAE and the possibility of CD32/CDTV emulation!!!

This is a must read.

More interviews coming soon. Thanks to everyone for their support.

Doh!

You forgot to ask him the obvious question :

"When did you learn to code like a dyslexic monkey who's shelf is clearly stocked with 'Visual Basic in 21 days' manuals?"

True...

Very true, but 'subliminally' he'd answer it

Ok the source of WinUAE is in a bad way, but it works and that is by far the most important thing. It is how I work when I am writing any code.

1) Make it work no matter what
2) Optimise it for maximum speed

I personally think that WinUAE is an excellent program that deserves our support, not ridicule.

Of course people can put their brains where their gobs are and download the source to make it better.

Yeah..

I prefer to go for the modularised code over speed. Functions that I can use again and be 100% sure they're portable.

IMHO that is the best way to code for a semi open-source project like WinUAE.

I've had this dicussion with people online before PJ (I think it was on the offical board), WinUAE does not need to be portable at all, it should be extremly optomised for Windows. UAE is what should be modularised as you say, but WinUAE should do whatever is best for Windows.

No-one would ever take the WinUAE source as a starting block, even if it was perfect, UAE will always be the first place they would/should look. IMO you wouldn't want to port a port (If you get what I mean with that), you would have at least twice the bugs to sort out (10 times the bugs if you use the current WinUAE source)

Independant...

I meant to use the word 'independant'. So there's seperate functions and includes for different part of the emulator, but changes in one part DOESN'T affect another part. I don't think the WinUAE source is tidy enough for this to happen.
