So I started to work on something for myself.
Thought I was being productive. Since I wanted to do something for myself and since the idea of something like this looked reasonable and nice:
Then I had a cursory look at 4chan, of all places. Which I should have never done.
- MSVC2017 can compile for & target XP. Though hardly anyone uses it. Question is though why bother considering the statistics. Stats don’t lie.
- I could go down to Windows 7, I thought Win8 was reasonable. And no one seems to use Vista anymore. Granted, Windows 7 is a reasonable userbase size.
- Windows Vista introduced DirectX10, which is on the same feature level as OpenGL 3.3. Considering the userbase using Windows 10 and Windows 7, I wonder why the heck are people complaining about. And catering for Direct3D9/OGL 1.5 is hardly worth it at all these days, considering the absence of users still on Windows XP. And most libretro cores require OpenGL 3.3 core support anyway, making OpenGL 3.3 support mandatory.
And since it:
I hardly care if it works on others or not. Its my own software. Don’t like it, you are free to do what I did and write something else. The libretro API ain’t that hard.
This now somewhat infamous rant sums it up:
Fuck these people.
