This is not true, ROM hacking cannot stick to NES/SNES hacking forever.
Poor MD, SMS, GBA, GB. No love for them
Playstation, Playstation 2, Wii, PSP, NDS and many other gaming platforms whose games are more than 300 MB in size need a fast patching tool, regardless of the game size. As I can see, RHDN is a community devoted at very old console hacking like NES/SNES, Genesis etc. but it is slowly moving to 32 bit systems like PSX, as recently opened threads demonstrate. When BPS would become fast enough to produce patches for ISO and NDS cart images, I will definitely drop xdelta.
Even if somebody writes a faster implementation, it is pointless. If you didn't notice from several people in this thread, there is nothing worthwhile about the BPS format. There are no problems that need addressing. Clearly byuu is such an ass, that anything he writes is by extension worthless. I pray he doesn't waste his time and find some cure for cancer, then we will have to prove to everyone that it is unnecessary, chemotherapy and radiation are good enough.
Some loser in another forum is looking at making a faster implementation, but I will make sure to point him this way so he can lose interest in his project.
The only thing that a new format could bring to the table would be one that works across the board from tiny to biggest files. And beat just fails here, end of story. But it's ok, continue throwing a tantrum.
Yeah, h.264 was a waste of time when it was developed. The reference encoder was slow as hell and there was no alternatives at its finalization, but some idiots decided to do their own implementation based on the spec and created x264. Morons, the only new thing it offered was HD and a Mpeg could still be made to do that. People should always stick to the first implementation and use that to judge a format. I wish everyone was as smart as you KaioShin, but unfortunately they are not and we are stuck with stupid formats like h.264. The worse part is now we have h.265 and the reference encoder is even slower, please educate the world about how pointless it is.
