I remember sometime ago Sony was looking for a software solution for accurate PSX emulation on new hardware. Since pSX (the absolutely best PSX emulator until now) seems abandoned now, I suspect $ony acquired the emulator for their own purposes. It's not the first time something like that happends, so don't call me crazy.
What's you opinion on this? Hey, sure you've already though abouth this...
No, it hasn't been sold to Sony, or abandoned. I've just been extremely busy with work for quite a while and haven't had much spare time. And in what little spare time I have I haven't felt like doing yet more coding .
I will try to find time to release pSX v1.14 soon - its basically pretty much ready - including a MacOSX port.

I feel speechless. It's so great to see you again, even if only for a single post (it's been over a year since your last post). Sorry to hear that work has kept you so busy. I could imagine though, not wanting to use your spare time on something you have to spend so much time doing for work.
Great to hear the MacOSX port is done. Wasn't expecting that, but it'll be a pleasant surprise to the Mac users that have been complaining about it for so long...
But hey... could you maybe just throw us a post every once in a while to let us know you're still around? Definitely just a humble request, I just ask because I (and many others I'm sure) get worried when you suddenly have gone so many months without even logging in. If not for the news from IRC, people might have started thinking you died or something... :/
I am also speechless... wow! Well, I can directly tell you how much I admire your work, pSX Author! But you already know what pSX is anyway, since you've programmed it yourself: exact video / audio refresh and glitch-free rendering makes it the absolutely best PSX emulator ever created. I am also a MAC user, so a MAC version would be just incredible.
I contacted you years ago to ask about the possiblity of that MAC port. I am still using a Mac Mini G4, so an Universal Binary would be appropiate for me, if it doesn't need much extra work... I know about endianness problems myself, so I understand whatever decission is taken regarding PowerPC support in the MAC port.
My post was just about an idea I had while running the other day, and I wanted to expose it here to gather opinions. It seems I was totally wrong. PSX flakey hardware dies: software pSX lives forever...
Thanks, pSX Author! (and the rest of you in this forum who keep illusioned about this precise emulator!)
