  • Back In Time Webcast - Mike Stulir wrote me the following message :

    Well, it is August, the middle of summer. Summer can be a slow time for
    classic gamers, so I am pleased to bring three (long overdue) episodes of
    the Back In Time webcast.

    First off is the "Father of Computer Games" Sid Meier from PhillyClassic 4.
    Sid appeared briefly on the E3 webcast in 2001, and I am pleased to say I
    was able to have a more in-depth conversation with him this time around.

    The second episode is from the 5th Annual Funspot tournament.

    The third episode is from PhillyClassic 5 featuring Howard Scott Warshaw.
    Howard was a blast, and he speaks at length about the development of games
    like Yars Revenge, E.T., Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Saboteur. Howard also
    explains his theory on why Steven Spielberg is an alien.

    Sid Meier and Howard Scott Warshaw were recorded in front of a live

    Be sure to check them out!!! These .MP3 files are kind of large, so a
    broadband connection is recommended.

    • Adjusted the LinuxPPC compile and link flags to prevent relocation errors resulting from the application being too large for 24-bit offsets in branch instructions. (Christian Groessler)
    • Improved the NetBSD USB joystick driver: Added support for up to 8 axes and 1 hat and made manual calibration optional via the command line option -joyusb-calibrate. (Dieter Baron)
