Firehawke: I could've swore you were one of the people here first talking about Dr.Hell's PK201 quite a while ago, you forget who made it already?
Not sure how I feel about emuwiki after seeing them say about PK201, "This is a PocketStation emulator that is not very well documented". Really? So that whole page that Dr.Hell has for it with all the *documentation* on how PK201 works, doesn't count? No credit to authors either? So much for being a "wiki", eh?
Well, it's a wiki. Feel free to correct it, right? They tend to rely heavily on people posting to the place, and I suspect any comments on "little documentation" would be from the perspective of an English speaker. (And thus do I get flashbacks on Pasofami and Super Pasofami.. and their particularly nasty tendency to vaporize non-Japanese Windows installs.)
Let's just say I haven't looked into Pocketstation in.. two or three years now? I remember having posted quite a bit, but I don't remember what all I was able to find at that point outside of the fact I know I wasn't able to find any decent concrete documentation. I'd almost found a reverse engineered technical document, but hit a dead end at the very last second. The guy who'd written it had taken it down and wasn't responding to email at all.
As for PK201, well.. in my own defense I can say that I said "at least one author is still working on it." because I'm pretty sure there wasn't anything going on a year ago-- In fact, finding recent PK201 development caught me off guard since none of the usual sites I'd been going to for news had been covering it. I'd honestly thought all the Pocketstation developments had been pretty dead.
You might get the idea that I'm obsessed with Pocketstation (What, two topics on this in three years, plus a whole bunch of research at one point?), but in reality I'm actually just curious about the hardware because it's one of the last frontiers of the PS1 that hasn't really been touched much.
