Nicola's MAMELife blog update!

mame差不多已经6年没有音讯的MAME初代目尼古拉大帝,当我以为他老人家可能已经驾鹤西去的时候,他就突然跳出来吓唬人了…您老忙什么呢?
根据他老人家今年春节期间的博客,他现在正致力于一项很有钱途的课余活动,给iOS写脑残小游戏(目前是Twin Beams,将来也许会有其他的),免费的,当然也有收费版。不贵,软妹币6元,大家踊跃购买哦,就当是还MAME的人情帐 😛
关于模拟器,尼古拉表示俺已经不做大哥很多年,实在没啥好交代的…噗…
为毛不更新博客?他老人家把密码忘了…噗噗…好理由…

差不多距今17年前,一位刚入学的意大利屌丝大一新生(也有可能是高三的男子高生),没有女朋友,也没人带他去party。正当他一边落寞的在宿舍里吃泡面,一边感叹把妹怎么就这么难涅的时候,突发奇想。决定用他在高中时期Amiga学习机上积累的经验和知识,为他最喜爱的街机游戏:吃豆人(PAC-Man)编写一个模拟器。这样他就可以在他的486电脑前坐着不动体验一把被追的快感了…当然连街机牌子的钱都省了。
计划进行的还算顺利,因为当时已经有公开的硬件技术资料了。但是让这位宅男郁闷的是,他发现吃豆人有N个被追来追去的版本,然后他也很喜欢小蜜蜂那些各种射的感觉。为每一个游戏都写一个模拟器虽然是个简单的解决方案,但是这位宅男很懒。所以最终他决定把自己所有的零零散散的模拟器合并起来。(更懒的是,2002年这货毕业设计的时候就直接把自己大一时写的这个模拟器当作论文内容给递了进去,居然还给过了…这是后话)
1997年2月5号,一个名字诡异的模拟器M.A.M.E 0.1发表。这个用纯粹的C语言写成的模拟器体态臃肿步履蹒跚。被当时一堆汇编核心模拟器围攻,直接打成猪头。而它的作者,是一个笑嘻嘻的一脸忠厚的意大利大学生:Nicola Salmoria。
记住这个人,模拟器世界里最伟大的一个传奇从他手里开始了。

Dusting off some cobwebs

Well, it looks like I hadn’t been here for some time.I’d like to thank all the people that are still coming over to this blog, even if it hadn’t been updated for several years.I couldn’t even find the password to access the admin pages, but I recovered it eventually, so I could finally remove a lot of spam that had piled up among the comments to the previous post. While I was there, I also updated the blog template.
I’m afraid I don’t have much to say about MAME now, because I haven’t been involved in its development for quite some time. Sorry! MAME was an endless source of stimulating challenges, but required too much time and dedication for a hobby.
As some of you might have guessed from my contributions to decryption of arcade games, I’ve always had a strong interest for mathematical and logic puzzles. Mobile devices are the ideal platform for this kind of games, so that’s where my main focus is at the moment.
In 2012 I released my first game for iPhone/iPod: Twin Beams. I’m now working on a new game.
I’ve also started a new blog: Nontrivial Games. It is dedicated to reviews of logic puzzles for iPhone and iPad. So if you share my interest for puzzles, hopefully you’ll like to follow my ramblings over there.
Kind Regards,
Nicola
