    This sucks, Arikado really contributed a lot to the scene, he will be missed until next time. :(

    I don't really know who he is but, gosh, his last blog post has been a great read so far.

    Inspiring for a 17 year old who really wants to get into programming.

    EDIT: Oh boi he just said the 'temp sucks. :O

    Which site is the quote from?
    Because as far as I know, it's not from gbatemp, he didn't get banned 3 times here.

    He also contributed on more homebrew on Wii than the one listed, like Dop-Mii or DeSmuME Wii (DS emulator for Wii).

    Thy why I left a nice comment on his blog asking for more info. I'm really curious on this one, too.

    Well this sucks! So much for any chances of a proper Dreamcast emulator. He should at least release the source for NullDCe so that someone can continue his work. :(

    Well, it seems like they were just suspensions and not really a ban... Anyway, he doesn't seem to have any resentful feelings against GBAtemp, and that's what I'm happy about.

    I'll be sad to see him go, if that counts? I don't have a wii but I did keep up with the desmume port news for a bit.

    Slightly miffed he didn't mention me at all for dop-IOS MOD. I was the first person to work on that actually, I changed the IOS used from 249 to 35 (easily downgraded by CMDVDX34), and then to 36 following a request (easily patched by TBR). Someone then requested a menu for choosing the IOS to use, which Arikado wrote, which broke the app, and someone else (I can no longer remember who) pointed out to Arikado that the Wii remote had to be uninitiated before reloading IOS and reinitiated after.

    Of course, I can't take much credit for the tool, my modification was extremely minor and took only seconds to do; but I do feel that if I hadn't decided to post my mod, dop-IOS MOD, and by extension dop-Mii, would never have happened.

    No hard feelings though.
