    Not exactly emulation but I don't know where else to post this but I discovered recently that HAN/HEN for PS3 (which allows you to soft-mod your PS3 - any model - to store ripped ISOs to your console's hard drive and play them) has an updated toolbox program for allowing offline authentication. No more having to log into the HAN webpage/server to run a PS3 game. I installed a 2TB HDD into my PS3 and transferred all my discs to it last year using HAN so if my PS3's DVD drive goes, I'm golden. In the past, if you wanted to play a game with your modded PS3 off the HDD (assuming your later-model PS3 doesn't support CFW) you had to first log-into the HAN website. You'd have to do this after every reboot. Gargantuan. Pain. In. The. Ass. (especially if you didn't happen to have online access). But using HAN Toolbox, you no longer have to do that. Huzzah!

    I actually dig that news. It might make things easier with my Steam Link, although that won't change much my life.

    Seems dumb. Then again RetroArch has been getting bloated with feature creep for a quite a while now. This seems like a logical step for them in their path downhill.

    The main man behind RA (goes by the names "SquarePusher" and "twinaphex" online) has always struck me as far too ambitious for the community's own good, if you get me. The kind of person who could easily develop a Messiah Complex and all the destructive ugliness that entails.

    Wow after decades Retroarch gets ability to autoupdate.


    What next ? Actual game list that doesn't require you to have pirated dumps of games to exact bite ?
    UI that doesn't suck as and has bilion options no one needs or ever uses like fucking music ?

    Crazy times we live in.

    Packaging decades of emulator development by other developers, shipping old versions of competing emulators, and bullying people on public channels? Nah.

    I actually wonder how do they get around this: https://partner.steamgames.com/doc/sdk/uploading/distributing_opensource

    This may be one of the reasons The Dark Mod could not receive a greenlight from Valve.

    What's the best/easiest way to emulate Android (on Linux)? Android Studio?
