I thought he was smarter than that. Seemed like a cool guy.
for posterity: the way he tells it, it was the straw breaking the camel's back - most of his friends here had moved on, and it was a perfect example of just something he didn't want to keep indulging, guy wasn't enjoying being part of the community anymore, so he quietly said so & did his thing. he can still be reached, and while i too miss the shit out of his posts, i think some degree of burnout is likely when you're all over the place for so long, i kinda felt Himuro did the same.
as an aside, i'm very grateful we still have stumpkapow, shockingalberto and a handful of other insightful posters, they're a big part of what keep me around too.

i can appreciate this; system replacement has to be the primary goal of any full-on emulation effort. effects & such are great, but really, as tricky as i understood the saturn's hardware to be, im glad we got here some years back.
if you're a diehard purist, these things are a slow climb - i remember thinking genocyst had old sega stuff down pat for years, but a few guys on here pointed out details like classic sonic games where picking up multiple rings isn't bounced back and forth between right & left speakers, a detail even lazy backbone apparently left out of some ports.
