I've search on the forum, and I didn't found any thread abou this, I just wan't to know one think:
Why not compile PCSX2 in 64bits?
On dolphin, the performance diference if like 10 to 20 frames!
(sorry about my poor english)
The Linux 64 version wasn't really that bad, IMO. Though I won't argue the Windows 64 bit port, which I don't think was even runable.
But at the time, it would have been cottonvibes, air, rama, drkIIRaziel, and possibly gigahertz working on rewriting the 32 bit code, and me doing the 64 bit code if we'd kept it. While keeping Linux working. And, heaven forbid, the occassional project, or adding new features.
It wouldn't have worked. Yes, zerofrog appeared to have been doing all that, but I'm not zerofrog, and that was with a much slower development rate.
And I suppose we should probably add a link to the original thread discussing this to the faq...
