Re: Genesis / Megadrive core ported to MiST

This project had completely passed me by... I'm so glad it exists, even though progress has slowed. This could possibly make my MiST replace my SMD after the multicarts voltage brouhaha that took place a while back, instead of having to buy a Mega EverDrive X5 to replace my EverDrive MD (anyone has ...

Ι think I'm plugging in my MiST this weekend for some much-needed love...

Re: The Atari ST (and others) and the Creative People

You can ask him for my emails, and you can see the Twitter discussion we had. Instead of, you know, showing your ignorance.

And yes, when someone starts name-calling in a thread, that right on par for a flame and is definitely troll behavior.

Re: The Atari ST (and others) and the Creative People

From your thread starter: "I feel really saddened that the author sees nothing wrong with the first volume" Oh yeah, and that, you think, refers to mistakes in English? Sheesh... Those (not many, few actually, but just not making spelling errors does not guarantee a good translation; espe...

Re: The Atari ST (and others) and the Creative People

Trying to claim that Marco isn't aware that the English isn't up to native level or that he would actively steer away from help just shows ignorance on the part of the OP. /Troed This sentence doesn't even make sense. Did I claim that "Marco isn't aware that the English isn't up to native leve...

Re: The Atari ST (and others) and the Creative People

The "first sentences" have nothing to do with addressing those specific books and if you think they're an "essay how awful the books are", let's read them again: Reason I’m writing this (or rather, the occasion) is a discussion I had last night with Marco A. Breddin, writer of Th...

Re: The Atari ST (and others) and the Creative People

Thanks for those comments, mikro. I'll disagree in that no, the opposing argument was not that these are not bad products, but merely that just because these products exist I should be thankful. Of course there's going to be people who like this or that or everything or nothing. But even the "p...

Re: The Atari ST (and others) and the Creative People

I guess we can finally say, that the Kickstarter campaign which was supposed to start for Volume 2 today will fail. Because nobody out there seemed to liked the book. That saves me $60 I guess... Everyone can draw their own conclusions and shape their own expectations based on available data. I was...

Re: The Atari ST (and others) and the Creative People

Marco's book was published in English because there are a lot more people able to read English vs. German. A Kickstarter for a German-language book would've most likely failed. Despite some flaws, both books - Marco's and Marty's - contain a lot of research and passion for the respective subjects. ...

The typical "I know everything because I'm so into books so I can judge and tell you why your product suck." This is what you call a constructive critics? Where in my review do I say that? Please, be serious. I'll tell you what you could have offered to Marco -- the proofreading. What. Th...

Re: The Atari ST (and others) and the Creative People

From the point of view of the producer it just comes down to money and personal standards. Personally if I didn't have the money to produce something in a second language that contained a good translation then I wouldn't do it for fear of poor feedback. And from the point of view of the consumer if...

I don't expect Lord Of The Rings English grade when reading Atari Inc Business is fun or Breakin' The Borders . Me neither.

Surely everyone has a friend who can provide a second pair of eyes, don't we? Heck, last year I partic...
