Well, is it really worth the update? I can't be bothered to get it if it only fixes minor things.Â

Any update that improves stability/functionality or addresses issues that users have had with the prior release I'd class as worth while. We are fortunate that forgotten has continued development when many other gba emu's have long since died.

If you can't be bothered to download because it only addresses minor issues, then what incentive are you sending out to forgotten for him to fix these minor issues. It's like saying, you do more and I'll only bother when you've done what I consider worthy of a download. I'm sorry if this seems harsh.. although I have used your quote I feel all of us should just be gratefull.

Kind Regards Angelical_1

Hmm, i was kinda hoping Forgotten would fix some stuff.. but does he even check compatibility?

The GBA community will never know..Â

Yeah he does, I've seen countless times in the past when he's corrected something in the Emu to make a game playable, and not to long after said game is released and not playabe, so kudos and thanks for him for that.

Plus as far as a compatibility list is concerned would you like to go through 1100+ releases to see if they all worked every release. It like the ZSNES guys having to fix the new versions because games that used to work are broke now. My suggestion is to use an older version in that case and use the new one for improvements it brings.

And to keep him just on this side of the Big N knocking at his door telling him to cease development. So we should be thankful for that and happy he hasn't been targeted by them I guess. (As they did with Ultra HLE, and that happened to Connetix and Bleem for PS1)

I for one am still extremely grateful he takes time out and still develops the emu to make it better and better. He does all the hard work and everyone else reaps the benefits. So be happy with what you have and leave it at that and give credit and thanks where it is due. 'Nuff said.

It would be unwise for forgotten to openly admit testing his emulator with commercial game ROMS, seeing as that would imply he uses the program for illegal activities.. that's why "we will never know," he may or may not..

Whether he does test or not, i'm still thankful, I'm just hoping (see previous post) ..

    But that's a thing with social media; it creates an illusion of proximity, when in truth everyone is overwhelmed with all the information and all the social demands in the platforms

    And a lot of people are addicted to the phone, checking social media or talking with someone. Some exercise in the gym while being glued to the phone, not even activity takes them away from it

    And I was like that too, until I left social media. Now sometimes I'm grabbing my phone, opening the browser and thinking: I've seen everything I wanted to see, I don't have a reason to use the phone. And I put it down

    I didn't make case, I made my manoeuver to park the car. But I caught them off-guard, the one ahead hit the brakes and had to jump from the scooter. For a second I thought he would go against the car. They were trying to race through a gap they perceived, thinking I was going to always drive forward
