and tbh, laxer is leaving a lot of money on the table.
his generosity with handing over his work like that is equally commendable, and the next team to finish this up will have a great head start !
Unless I'm mistaken it was always going to be handed over to the community as it was eventually going opensource at some point or another. The work by laxer, ultra, electronash and others is amazing.

oh, yes of course!
sorry if what i said was misunderstood.

what i meant on my previous post is that laxer stepping away is leaving a lot of work (and patreon dollars) for someone else to pickup. which is commendable for someone to just hand over the recipe and "leave the keys in the car".

its generous of them to make their work-in-progress open source and available for the public, which may have been made public eventually, but to my knowledge was not handed out during development of a core

Seems like the remaining work is mainly about polish. Easier said than done, but Laxer and Ultra did get a lot done. Whoever decides to pick this up will be in a much better position than he would have been otherwise.
Yeah, he did an amazing job I think. I do not feel my money were wasted. I had even tried to tell him to take breaks and such. Its all well and good to get Patreon support and feel obligated to put work in, but seems to he overworked himself.

I hope he recovers, and I am just happy that he and Ultra shared their source code stuff. Its amazing how close it is to a working Playstation I think.
Yes doing passion projects can run you into health issues as well. Been there almost, done that, I was glad enough to hit the break at the last minute. But I also did not have the responsibility to run a Patreon on top! So quitting/putting things into hiatus was easier once I could acknowledge, that I have a problem! I hope he recovers. And as well from my side, a ton of thanks for the work.

Truly sad to find out that the work that was being done on the PlayStation core came to a complete halt. Has anybody picked up on this project or it's completely abandoned?

Hopefully SRG320 can do it after the Saturn becoming the 32-bit FPGA God. :twisted:

TL;DR - laxer is still working on it, but at a very slow pace

and yes, it would be amazing if someone like SRG320 would step up to finish the PSX core (or at least help move it along)

Whoa whoa whoa, so Laxer3A is back working on the ps1 core? That's awesome news!! Even if he is taking his time with it i'm happy he is back.
Also like you both @PikWik and @H6rdc0re said it would be amazing if SRG320 or someone else gives a hand

I saw his Patreon last update, if he feels better and enjoying it better at a slower path, that's the way to do it. Glad to see him keep going at it with less presure and more pleasure.
