Atani News

Atani, the author of the Windows version of Laser, Laser32, (As Well as Raine32, Generator32, DCGen, BlissX, and SegaEmu) has stopped development of all emulation related projects, after nearly 5 years in the emulation community.

As I was looking at the site, I noticed something strange – a build of Laser32 that seemed to sneak past everyone (including me!), Laser32 0.10. I compared the two archives – the dates were different as were the file sizes – so this does indeed appear to be a newer version of Laser32. Kind of a going away present to the Laser team of sorts, even though it had just been overlooked. 🙂

Good luck in your future projects Atani – I’m glad to have met you, and it’s nice to hear that you have had fun porting Laser to Windows (even though you don’t really remember doing it ;))

Laser is coming to Dreamcast

ss_teven has been working on a port of Laser, my Midway 8080 arcade emulator originally released for DOS on January 30, 2000 and based on Mike Green’s Sinvader, to the Dreamcast.

He has had success with Domenico Data’s Linux port of Laser, after working on the DOS port to no avail. He states that it is a little slow, but after fixing some graphics errors and making a GUI (a first for Laser in any port), he will release a beta version of LaserDC.
