Poll #4 is active now.

A new voting choice has been added: pre-cache video stream! By loading the entire video stream into RAM, some games would perform better.

Due to comments I have received on the voting system, I have made another change:

You can now no longer see which voting choices are in the lead until the voting gets close to ending. This is to prevent the voting becoming skewed before everyone has had a chance to vote.

So now what I want to happen is for everyone to vote for what they want without any bias, and then once the voting is close to expiring, the top 3 choices will be revealed, which will create a sort of showdown between the leading choices.

Not showing the leading votes at all is a bad idea in my opinion because it can mean that the voting will be too distributed for the winning vote to have any real meaning. But I can also see problems with showing the leading votes too early because they can inappropriately influence people's choice.

I hope this helps... :)

Less than 3 days are left for the next vote. You can now see which choices are in the top 3, so it's time to finalize your votes.

Vote #4 is done. Multiple speed playback has won! This will pave the way for more advanced lasergames to be emulated.

I've finished my work on multiple playback speed and I've modified seektest to support multiple playback speed for people to test.

Feel free to report any bugs or problems you find ... :)
