Does it really matter, though? It's 2019, nobody is winning or losing anything from something this old (and useless, really) being released after all this time.

Even if the NES emulation part is very inaccurate, it still exists as example code for everything else. There's the GUI, there's the DirectDraw system, there's the Netplay system, the NES movie system, and now the savestate system can finally be fully documented.

Yeah, and that guy really shouldn't have done that. Sad.


It had to be done. No point making the code inaccessible. It was uploaded for preservational purposes. NES ROMs are also distributed, but some how that's not "morally wrong". I'm *pretty* sure that would also be against the dev's wishes.

I was gonna say the same thing before but ended up not doing it... but yeah, this double standard is annoying sometimes.
