When DraStic will get some update ?

Postby Fullbringers » Sat Feb 10, 2018 10:21 pm

Almost 2 years we didnt get some update. I know its not easy work. But please make some update like theme, layout or whatever. At least tell everyone that emulator still on development.

There's a beta that's more recent, you should check that out.

I've been really busy with other things but I hope to get back to working on it soon. Although it may be time to open source it if I can't find any time for it.

I wholeheartedly encourage you to make it open-source. After all, look what it did to Dolphin. It went from a just-okay emulator to the absolute best GameCube/Wii emulator you could download, with all sorts of cool features added as well.

And we'll have to come up with an alternative revenue model to make up for those who paid for Drastic. Patreon seems fine, but that is a grey area at worst as some would take umbrage at profiting from emulation due to legal issues.

How about certain advantages to those who paid for the program?

Like what? Earlier access to updates, maybe?
Doing what PPSSPP does and just offering a donation level tier (AKA their "Gold" edition) sounds fine to me. But we should let Exo decide anyway.

That sounds fine too. In case the idea of the Gold edition arises, maybe we should give instant access to it to those that paid for the emulator before.

Yeah. Just rebrand the existing app as the Gold edition, then release a free version.

And look at the countless possibilities we may have by open-sourcing it! We may make faster progressions on Wi-Fi/Multiplayer support and we could implement thousands of other features, like support for the DSi models, DS firmware booting, and much more! Dang, look at that and I won't believe you if you tell me it isn't a great idea!
