Default ePSXe has been discontinued

_Demo_ recently stopped by #epsxe on EFNET to give us the sad news. ePSXe has been discontinued

----------------------
[07:35] <_Demo_> This summer we will be approaching two years since the release of ePSXe 1.6.0. Many people are expecting a new release before then or around then. Well, I am here to tell you it isn't going to happen.
[07:36] <_Demo_> The last change I made to the code was about September 2004, and I have not done anything to it since. I have many problems in my life that I do not wish to go into that prevents me from continuing this.
[07:36] <_Demo_> I actually decided to discontinue this back in late 2004, but did not have the courage to make an announcement nor rid myself of the source code.
[07:37] <_Demo_> Last night I deleted all source code and binaries off my hard-disks and destroyed any backup copies I had. There will be no release of the ePSXe source code, I don't owe anyone anything.
[07:37] <_Demo_> ePSXe was a project I did in my spare time. And now I do not have any spare time for reasons. I barely have enough time to come here and make this statement but I feel people need to know so they don't get their hopes up for nothing.
[07:38] <_Demo_> I wish to thank everyone involved in ePSXe, you know who you are. You were great to me but now it is time for it to come to an end. Goodbye ePSXe, and goodbye to all involved in it. I am grateful to you.

That's too bad...oh well though, if he needs more time for his life than it's a good thing, although I can't say I won't miss it since I love ePSXe, heh.

I question his motives for not releasing the source and letting someone else pick it up. How does that have anything to do with not owing anybody anything?

Is the source code thing really such a big deal? I've always seen ePSXe as just a front end for the various audio/video/cd plugins made for it. As long as the plugins keep getting made, what does it matter if ePSXe itself is never updated?

the guy is either in a state of serious depression, or he's completely lying. no programmer worth two shits would completely eradicate their work like that.

either way, i smell hoax

Man, all of the source code, binaries and any backups? Yeah, better make sure no one can possibly find a way to improve upon your work, that would be an awful thing.

Edit: Well, it looks like it's all fake anyway. Seems the fake _Demo_ went out and made a second 'announcement' to make sure no one was in any doubt about his fakeness. Besides, ePSXe is made by a team, which the real _Demo_ is a part of. Hence, he can't discontinue it by himself.

Nothing to see here...

This "messanger333" loser posted the same shit on the ePSXe forum at emuforums and got banned for it. Read here.

ePSXe has NOT been discontinued.

I was wondering about that....considering he works on Zsnes as well and I hadn't seen any annoucement of him leaving that projet.

Why do a prank like this? What are you like 12 years old? Did your doggie bite off your penis as a child? Hopefully an all out ban will be enforced on this losers ISP or IP from every forum. A rediculous pety attempt at some kind of revenge or slander. <img src=smilies/headshake.gif>
