New from MelonDS-Developer:"Go ASK the drastic guys"
But I ASK them if they can create one for drastic
WHERE IS THE LOGIC OF THE ANSWER???
DAMN! WE WERE SO CLOSE!
Everyone seems to be adamant that the melonDS developer can easily add this to Drastic DS so I just need to clarify a few things and hopefully clear up any misunderstandings:
Asking the melonDS developer to create WiFi code for drastic; Just to put this into context, its the equivalent of asking Microsoft to make all Windows programs work on a Macintosh. It simply doesn't work like that.
A developer cannot make an open source implementation of WiFi code work on a closed source emulator such as Drastic. If they don't have access to the source code of drastic, then they will not be able to code it in the first place because they won't be able to understand how the emulator works and how it might be added.
One must grasp the general idea of Software Development in order to ask questions like this.
And secondly, the melonDS developer has no obligation
to add such a feature to Drastic DS even if it was open source.
Most open source projects are made in a developer's free time, often as a hobby, so their own projects often take priority.
Exophase will research into and/or add the feature when he feels it is appropriate and when he has his own implementation and therefore, waiting for his feedback is the best course of action.
I understand using the code from melonDS would be in violation of GPL, so he is going to need to come up with his own implementation or derivative.
