Because legal power has the force.
Doesn't stop you using the last public version, or indeed it seems as if the FBA maintainers have just relicensed it to Capcom, and aren't canning the public version, just Capcom get the use of a licensed version of the core in addition to the open source users.Apparently, one guy who contributed CPS1/2 code took the liberty to sell a license of FBA to Capcom for their crappy console:
Wasn't all Final Burn and Final Burn Alpha code supposed to be non-commercial?
This is a big blow for FOSS, who'd want to contribute if nobody knows whether some big anti-FOSS company will profit from it at some point?
Great news for Pandora owners.Ahem, well I'm still going to be releasing a new version of MAME for the Pandora.
It's a combo release like for the GCW-Zero called XMAME 2.0 and will have Mame4all 2.0, xmame69 and xmame84.
None of these are vanilla ports, all heavily optimized and enhanced.
I have someone testing the Pandora version for the last few months and am hoping to release something very soon.
Yes, very likely as you can read yourself in this thread:Great news for Pandora owners.
Will you be developing for the upcoming Pyra?
