Sell, Donate, GNU? CopyWrite?
« on: December 06, 2017 - 23:00:09 »

I have already started programing a new retro emulator and being that most of you have been around longer than I have so maybe I can get some input from you.

Complete VS 2017 Direct X.  Other systems may follow.

Without giving to much detail away.

This emulator is planned to run the first 3 major systems.  Atari 2600, Colecovision, Intellivision.
Yes, I know, nothing new but in VC++ and a modern interface.

No roms will be included but the major questions are...
If I were to include clones of such games as Astrosmash, Cosmic Avenger or what not.
Who still owns the rights to those titles and would they care?

If I sold or received donations would an uproar occur vs free.

My intention also is to load a rom, be able to alter it, press recompile and your changes will run on a real machine.

So now you are altering an original title.

Just curious to what you have to say.
