    Today I was setting up some emulators of certain obscure consoles like the Tiger Game.com and the Watari/Quickshot Supervision, googling around, I found some info about the Supervision here(and some info about the emulators), and I saw that "Potator is another Supervision emulator, developed by Xport for Windows, GP2X, and the Nintendo DS under the names Watari and PotatorDS. It is believed to be the first Supervision emulator. The final known release is Potator v0.7, but 0.6 is the most commonly found and used", I tried to Google the v0.7 one, but I failed.
    So I came here to ask, does anyone have a link to that version? Or that info is wrong?

    (Also sorry if that is the wrong section of the forums, I am not sure if it is on Other Handhelds or Computer Games and Technology)

    Edit: I found it and it is on filetrip now. http://filetrip.net/oldies-downloads/other-oldies/download-potator-0-7-f32779.html

    Actually it was me who ported Potator to the DS.... twice once as PotatorDS and the other as Watari. Xport just took my newer SDL Potator sources and made a better frontend. I also don't remember him ever posting his modified sources anywhere :(

    I dont remember a 0.7 but i could be wrong its been nearly 7 years since i last worked on Potator.

    Oh, that is interesting, I would never expect you to have ported Potator to the DS.
    Well, I asked my friend to do some Googling too, he found a few dead websites, I wonder if it wasn't released or if most common sources for the download are dead nowadays.(After all, the Supervision wasn't too popular, most people never heard of it here)

    Edit(Updated):After more searching, I found it and it is on FileTrip now!
