Ok, so it hasn't been three months break, what can I say?
This is a test version of the MESS Spectrum 128k emulator. It is fully functioning, but I would like to know how compatible it is before I do a final release, so as you test games, please forward me a list so I can let the rest of the users know (credit will be given of course).
Please read the readme for information, and if someone makes an SBI of this release, please include my readme with it.

This has been posted at :
Ragnarok2040 released a script in our forums that will automate the downloading, extraction, and compiling of KOS, now that it has moved to Subversion instead of CVS.
The script runs in *nix environments, or under Cygwin, and also under MingW (but this isn't tested). It has options to compile the KOS 1.2.x branch or the experimental 1.3.x branch.

Today, on November 17th 2003, Dreamcast-Scene (formerly officially launches with a brand new layout and new content.

As, we grew to the world's biggest initiative, and international petition, against the discontinuation of Dreamcast software. With the new name, layout and content, we want to symbolize the unity of the programming scene, gamers and fans of the Dreamcast. We also expanded our area of activity to developing new hardware and acting as a worldwide brand for publishing new Dreamcast software.

Our partner, Lik-Sang, will sell our hardware and software in the future and with this solid partnership, as well as with the new established community, we will grow more and more.
