My understanding was that a specific explanation of all of the stunts they pulled in Overdrive 2 was not the intent of that document, and that something more along those lines would be forthcoming.
The post kind of implied that this was that explanation doc. They could still be working on that writeup but I'm not really sure why it's taking so long.
Realtalk: Kinda already mentioned before but I don't really want to make a demo, in part because I want to be honest and upfront with the stuff that I do, and also because I don't want to engage in platform wars. I want to have meaningful conversations about retro hardware, not angry Internet Arguments(tm). Fuck that. The only way I could make a demo is if I could make it into a labor of love rather than something done out of spite but given the current vitriol I'd consider this to be nearly impossible. Others are welcome to try though.
I'm just gonna focus on homebrew instead. Most of the driving force behind my work there has been both designing things for other developers to use, and getting to talk about silly weird hardware quirks, even if that makes my preferred system look bad. This kind of thing should be fun, damnit!
