DroidMac is dead...

Hi All,

I must admit, that i wanted to take DroidMac much forward, as I saw it (among my other emu ports) as the most promising (mainly due to the MacOS capabilities and speed). I have currently a version in the works with better touch mouse support, config capabilities front-end, etc. I was to release it on this page within next few days. But no I don't.

After seeing this: and especially after reading many of the comments to this article, I must admit that I'm loosing my energy to work on the project that praises Apple in any way. I lost a passion for it. Period.

Therefore this project is dead. Feel free to use the previous version.

From now on I will focus on DroidPUAE development.

Update: after very deep Colinski comment (thanks for it!), yes, i must admit - that to do that kind of project you need to feel something for the subject. And this feel I unfortunately lost last days due to the topic linked above. But as to my knowledge it is the only working Basilisk port for Android - I can immadietely share the source code of it to anyone willing to take it forward. The code in the current form is pretty clumsy, definitely not production level, but it shouldn't be a problem for someone willing to take it over. I own it to the vintage Mac community that is simply great (E-Maculation, Macintoshgarden, etc.)
