While that site is a little overly dramatic, I definitely support any movement that stands against the government gaining more power.  Problem is, stuff like this will keep on popping up as long as lobbyists are allowed in Washington - that's what everyone should really be demanding their congressional representatives do something about.

Good move :) but i wouldn't worry too much. if stuff like youtube is banned armed protests will likely quickly resolve the issue. What with rioting happening in the UK over something trivial its even more likely to happen here if something is actually done that is worthwhile to riot about. not that rioting is good..

Getting back to the project: the new configuration interface I wrote is so much nicer than what I was using before.  Not sure if any of you had a look through some of the source code like GamePad.java and TouchPad.java, but it was pretty ugly.  The new interface is similar to a HashMap, except that the hashes are under their own sections.  I finished porting some of the existing source to this new interface, and it is very easy to read (and debug!) now.  I hope to have everything done soon (I'm shooting for this evening, but you know how that goes..)

This is what cleverbot thinks about the chances of the emulator being finished by tonight :P

Haha, that's not even as "clever" as my AI..

When I asked it, it told me "Well there is many people in Japan, I dot think you would have any trouble fusing someone."  Ok.. back to work.

hello paul, once more thank you very much for all the time and all the hard work you are investing in this. Is the update going to be finished tomorrow? how much is left? I really hope you can finish it this weekend, but i can understand it if you can?t. I don?t want to put you under pressure, i just wanna know how far you are. :)

I'm shooting for tonight on the update.  All that's left is a lot of tedious XML work, and I have to fix the file browser (I tried adding in the ability to browse through zip files the other day and totally screwed it up).  It will definitely be this weekend (might have to stay up late this evening.. I'll put on a pot of coffee).

I think browsing through zip files should be something thats optional. On my phone I have a folder full of zipped n64 roms and I think it would be a bit troublesome launching games if I have to do this:

roms>n64>mario.zip>mario.n64

Than doing this:

roms>n64>mario.zip

However I can see the advantages of it, if users dont already have their games zipped then they could add them all to one zipped archive and launch them like that:

roms>n64games.zip>allthegames.n64

anyway enough of my rambling good luck getting the final parts of the GUI done! :)

do what other people does: use the thing that lets you select a file manager you have installed on the smartphone, should work.

Along the same line as Epic_bubble,

I personally believe that if a zip file is chosen, the ideal behavior would be as follows:

If there is only one n64 file in the archive, it is loaded immediately.
If there are multiple files, it continues as planned.

I'm guessing this is already part of Paul's plan. If not it is a fairly trivial extension.

EDIT:

After further thought, the ideal behavior IMO would be to specify a rom directory in the options, then simply have a list of roms to launch. This would be more in-line with other emulators as well as android's vision of trying to make the user interact as little as possible with the file system.

Epic, can't wait to try the new version once it's up. I haven't tried the Alpha yet due to sheer laziness, I was going to do that today but I may as well wait if there's the new version coming out xD.

Yes, that is what I was trying to do.  I will probably come back to this later (it's a little more tricky than it sounds)

I disagree that this would be ideal.  It creates extra steps for folks like me with tons of ROMs who want to organize them rather than throwing everything into a single folder.  The way I'm going to implement it is that it will remember which folder you were in last, and just start there when you come back.  I think that's the best compromise (folks with everything in one folder will have their list of ROMs every time, and everyone else can quickly choose "..", "folder", "ROM" if they are going from one collection to another.

Fair enough. I could see how that would be an issue if you had tons of roms.

I'm not sure if this was brought up already but.. When I reinstall the apk as I did before in the past, it doesn't work anymore. It just crashes on start-up. This didn't happen before.
