first off... "The demo is limited in time, everything is fully fonctionnal, but after 5 minutes the game you are playing will be frozen. You can reset it to start again or you can load another game, but you can not play to a game more than 5 minutes."

i ain't save/loading a save state every 5 minutes.

second, $20 for an emulator? you are some insane devs! http://www.magicengine.com/uk_index.php?sessid=mbgj_1PeJYYFMxHlghJDcQEmVTHA that's like the devs of that redream dreamcast emulator who have a crappy free version and an actual proper version if you buy it.

i knew something was off when i saw the license said "demo".

yeah I too get sick of that pay for emulation stuff, I mean I get the hard work... Besides, most people that emulate can figure out a crack... I think people that make money by using someone else IP, is a bad thing anyways.

The point is not to emulate PC-FX or TG16, its to use the BEST emulator. Granted, if you make the BEST emulator I can see why you would want money, but the point here is you're charging for something that exploits company. I do not care how good it is, its not right to make money by stealing IP and look at it how you like, it is steeling IP because without the original console there would be no emulator.
