Air - the latest PCSX2 retiree
Jake Stine (Air) has retired from PCSX2, after more than two years of vigorous work on the emulator.

My reason for leaving is simple: I am now married and am taking a job that promises to be interesting and challenging, and will be paying me quite well -- and I fully intend to apply myself there as I have here: with unwaivering dedication and focus.

I have really enjoyed working with PCSX2 these past 2+ years. I have learned a lot about a wide variety of things including (and not limited to) becoming intimately familiar with console hardware design, and developing more advanced high and low level software development skills -- such as binary translation and better understanding of operating systems and application binary interfaces (ABIs).

I will be leaving a few unfinished projects in my wake, such as the R3000A rewrite (recompiler and interpreter), and new dmac work. These side-projects were educational in their own ways for myself and other PCSX2 contributors, however; even if they never quite survived into "profoundly operational" status.

I wish good luck to users and current and future PCSX2 developers and bid everyone a proper farewell -- perhaps unusual in emulation, a scene where the programmers often silently vanish.

Well, we already did all the proper goodbye parties and stuff.. Tongue

I'll just reply to abdo123 here:
Jake leaving PCSX2 means an enormous loss. It won't be just a slowdown, unfortunately.
The rest of the team, me included, will still try to keep up the quality though!
