wwhhhhy does this have a "but is it legal" side bar, and talk about ROMs? I mean, the device is nothign to dow ith that so its poor writing to taint the rest of the article, and as to that question.. emualtion never was and never will be illegal, only piracy is illegal. Frak sakes, the same questin been around 20 years and people still can't get their heads around it :/

I have the North America copy of the same issue, "Future of Fun" but no Pandora. Ugh

Picked it up today. It's very nicely written, the author is clearly in tune with the spirit of the project (and I dare say would be reading these forums... Hi James, nice job.)

I totally agree: that bit about legality is unnecessary. All the same, how very cool that this made such a nice publication.


I hope everyone is well. I see things are still getting better all the time!

I'm actually very surprised they would put it into hard print like that. Even the wording is blatantly suggesting violating copyright.


Of course, the real reason to remove the scan is because that is copyright infringement, not because they printed links to ROM sites :p

heh, methinks the 'but is it legal' panel would have been more appropriate on that page. :)


I find the differences between versions interesting... I get the impression that we're getting the better end of the content deal here in Australia... in my copy that article is on page 76 not 64. (and the emulator list panel is in a different position)


Mind you aside from the iCP reference I think the more interesting article is on the previous page, which describes how a guy mounted an OutRun Cabinet to a golf cart chassis, where the only visibility of the road is via two cameras mounted to the top of the Cabinet, with the image appearing on the screen. It brings to mind an old tag line from my BBS days...
