Final Burn (for Linux*)
 Detailed new view 


Sourceforge has rejected to host my port of FinalBurn. :(( After 32 days waiting for an answer (yes, they say they usually answer in 48 hours) they have decided not to accept the project. So... I'll have to continue in this poor free web server.

Initial Comment:
While trying to register the project "fblinux", it got
rejected becouse of it's description. In case it helps,
here it is a more complete one. If not, I'd like to
know the concrete cause of the rejection.

Description: FinalBurn for Linux is a port of Dave's
FinalBurn and includes code from FinalBurn Alpha to
increase the number of playable games. It's a
CPS1/CPS2/Sega arcade games emulator using SDL for
graphics and sound. It should run from a framebuffer
console, via svgalib or under X. (althought it's
intended to be run under X) It's written in C/C++ and,
with my modifications, should compile and run fine on
systems other that Linux. (it's known to compile under
QNX, for instance) As long as the platform has a C
compiler, Nasm and a 80x86 processor, it'll run.
