My Bliss-box project is about to hit mass production so I'm considering what next? Was thinking going back to metroid64, or maybe join emulation development on dolphin or CEN64
. But Also though about a c# version of QP.
Why c# - Its what everyone knows these days and a very easy GUI system. Would be easy to do a new QP with the same look and feel. Thinking open source
Why an announcement - best way to see what others think. Would like to gather a following here that would be interested in contributing. I'd like to go modular so we can work on our own parts and merge when ready.
Why not leave QP alone. You can always go back? Lets face it, its still the best out there, but delphi? That is so 2005...We are way too limited for programmers...devs are needed here, there are so many cool things we can do. If a c# version is made it could always use the same data files in the same way. In looking at hyperSpin, we could use their media folders also. I would not suggest bundling it but more like a connect to hyperSpyn media folder options.
Also there are EMU api's out there now that we can hook to.
The think that QP would be the target, its the best front end out there for the computer setup.This way we know what to make and have a road map. So we can do this clean and right. I'm a software engineer so this is nothing new to me. I just need a team.
3rdpart hook developers
Eye appealing candy
Placement and layouts
Just some of what we would want and we have most of that now.
Sharpplay is just an idea for the name, its open for ideas. So what say you? A lot of work needs to be done before we start.
