    Now that is a cool addition. More actual changes to the game lineup that the main 0.130 release had. Just keeps getting better and better. However I only ever upgrade with each main release so I will wait until 0.131 is released.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Me too, and I think that's quite often enough because I don't use it every day, and of course I have hundreds of other collections to upgrade

    Which is the reason you never actually play any game. All your spare time is spent updating the collections!

    I'm currently (since already 3 hours) updating all my emulators, I didn't do that for several years now, so I thought now would be the time

    (Quite a lot of work )

    Quite a lot of emulators out there though, and if you haven't updated them in so long many now look and work very differently, and have many new cool features.

    I've been playing around with the latest version of MESS recently and that has come a long way, able to emulate a lot of systems now.

    I finished about half of them, gonna do the rest this afternoon and can hopefully finish the whole upgrading action.

    A lot of the emulators just have other versions with more features but mostly still work the same, which is positive. Other ones weren't updated at all, but then again I can understand that, f.ex. NG Pocket, or Virtual Boy.

    I will probably also test some emulators that haven't been installed yet, to see the difference.

    I played around with MESS a long time ago, and whilst I thought that it's not so bad, I thought that on the other side, emulators for a specific platform work a lot better. MESS worked fine for me for the Vectrex emulation, as there not many working Vectrex emulations out. Have to try some other again.

    MESS is a big project, so it was always going to take a long time to get the emulation right for each and every system supported. Plus more systems are being added all the time. I think it is more a merging of other emulators, and then the need to continue the development of that part of MESS that has taken the time more than anything else.

    Console emulation also seems to work better in MESS than home computer emulation, and this is normally true for emulators anyway, because consoles are a fixed hardware design so there is only one setup to emulate. Where home computers can have different models and hardware specs so there are loads of variations to allow to be selected to set them up to work with a wide variety of software. Amiga emulation probably being one of the biggest to highlight this point.

    But when I was playing around with MESS the other week it definitely seems to have come a long way since I tried it before a long time ago.

    The G-NET ROMs are now available at UG.

    Btw, I now finished with the emulations I had, now testing some other ones. This now already took me a lot of hours, but I enjoyed it Gonna post a new screenshot when I'm finished.

    I also tested LuSpace, which is quite a nice frontend.

    I've not tried LuSpace. Will take a look.
