:: Email Wars #17 ::
The Fox interviews Richard Bush (author of Raine) - Saturday 15th August 1998.

 

Full Name: Richard Bush
Age: 22
Occupation: ex-student?
Emulator: Raine


Fox: Whats the latest news about the raine emulator at this present time ?

I'm trying to cope with a sudden increase in available romsets... It's hard to much when the sun is always shining. I've just added some non-Taito games:

Tecmo Knight (c)1989 Tecmo

WWF SuperStars (c)1989 Technos Japan

And ofcourse, Jumping Islands, which in turn makes Rainbow Islands playable :). I guess WWFSuperStars will be popular in a similar way to WrestleFest, I hope romlist won't have too many 'nerd mails' this time... :).

Fox: Whats the top 3 games that you would plan to be playable in your emulator?

Liquid Kids (a great game, but the only home-version is the pc-engine one...) Bubble Sympony & Bubble Memories (joint second) Rainbow Islands (where do you think the name raine came from?)

Fox: Will the next version of Raine have any other sound support added to the games, and if so which ones?

WWF SuperStars has sample support (new game for the next version).

Jumping Islands has music (YM2203).

Armed Formation and Terra Force have some strange noises, which may or may not be accurate soundfx! :).

Fox: Is their any computer/console that you would consider emulating, and if so which one?

I'd probably only consider a 680x0 based system, and apart from the Atari Jaguar, I can't think of any... (And I don't like the Jaguar anyway...).

Fox: The Bubble Bobble games have become popular releases in your emulator, will any additional ones be planned to be supported?

If the roms become available: Liquid Kids, Bubble Sympony, maybe Puzzle Bobble 4... I can't think of any other unemulated Bubble Bobble type games...

Fox: Currently what is your favourite emulator (other than Raine)?

Overall it's zsnes, but recently neorage has been fun (rather a lot of boring fighting games though)...

Fox: In the current line up of supported games in Raine, which is your favourite and why?

Bubble Memories... I like that style of game.

Fox: What gave you the inspiration to start Raine?

Romlist dumped rainbow islands; the roms contained 68000 code; I knew 68000...That's what started it in the first place.

Fox: What are your overall main targets to be achieved in the Raine Emulator?

- Play the games I want to play

- Learn/improve my C/asm skills

And if it was possible, I'd like to make lots of money from it, but unfortunately that's not going to happen :(

Fox: Any other projects planned in the future?

nothing emulation/computer related...

Fox: What emulator (working 100%) would you pay for? :)

Zsnes I guess, but it's too late to start charging for it now... If I paid for an emulator, I'd probably expect it to arrive on a cd along with many of the roms it supports, otherwise it's a bit like buying quake2, but finding it comes with no levels and you have to find and download the levels yourself... hmm...

Fox: What are your thoughts on the Emulators Unlimited site, if you could improve it, what would you do?

Lots of nostalgia sections... Interview old amiga people from the demoscene, archives of amiga gfx, music, demos... Cover things other emulation sites don't look at, like maybe when good pc demos come out, when a new version of HVSids gets released etc... I guess most people into emulation are also into other computer things?

Fox: If you could shock the world of Emulation in 5 words what would you say!

Wasn't the amiga demoscene better?
