The Interview

Wraggster: Where were you born, live and family details etc?
SS_teven: I was born in Perth, Western Australia where I still live to date.

Wraggster What qualifications do you have?
SS_teven Well, currently none, I left school 2 weeks into Year 11 because it just sucked, now I'm studying a quick course in Electro technology and PC Servicing, which will probably follow onto a larger more scale IT course...

Wraggster What made you get into computers?
SS_teven Well, back in god knows when, we got a Commodore 64, I just loved it, I was playing games on it day after day, it was just an amazing thing, then I started making little simple programs in BASIC, and I was addicted.

Wraggster What projects/coding have you done previous to any Dreamcast programming?
SS_teven None, SMS Plus! was my first coding project.

Wraggster Can you give us a status update on all your emulator projects?
SS_teven SMS Plus! is moving along nicely, just got full sound added, experimental Save states, ZIP support, and more. DCLaser is currently on halt, because of various irresolvable problems.

Wraggster How did you start and what programs did you use to start coding?
SS_teven GNU GCC, Libdream then to KallistiOS, notepad, and edit.com, all pretty simple and basic tools one would use for Dreamcast Development.

Wraggster Tell us about your plans for future projects on the Dreamcast?
SS_teven I'm actually thinking of making a car racing game, mainly to become more advanced with C and Assembly, it'll probably suck, and look like a game from Atari , but I'll love it :D hehe

Wraggster Whats your opinion of the new super consoles like X-box, Gamecube, Game Boy Advance and the Playstation 2?
SS_teven I personally think they are all amazing systems, with a great future headed forward for them all, maybe not PS2 though.

Wraggster Which console looks the best for devving on?
SS_teven Dreamcast of course! It has been the best, and will remain the best, but I'd like to get my hands on a Gamecube dev kit :D

Wraggster What are your favorite games for every system you have
SS_teven God, there are just too many to name and remember !

Wraggster Your thoughts on the Dreamcast Emulation/Development Scene and how can it be improved?
SS_teven I think its great how it is right now, its been the most active it's ever been with various new releases coming, and the development of various new emulators for the Dreamcast.
