Atari VCS 2600 emulator for PSX update :

Got called in to a meeting today to take a look at a problem the outside development studio is having understanding my Atari VCS 2600 code for the SONY PSX.

Apparently their code “is elegant and extensible” but runs like a fucking two-legged dog that has been dead for a week.

So some bright twat decided that my highly optimized, inlined everything, static recompiler, massive jump table, dynamically rewriting MIPS R3000 assembly that emulates the 2600 at 240+fps is “not elegant” and they ported it to C and a bunch of functions which now runs at around 6fps.

“Yeah, we can’t understand why it is running so slow.”

You fucking idiots.
