A brand new stunning twist within the unhappy saga of the AetherSX2 emulator seems to have unfolded at present, with a brand new replace to the Android PlayStation 2 emulator on Google Play, a claimed change of developer, and a stark warning from an obvious neighborhood moderator.
The story started as AetherSX2 obtained a brand new replace on Google Play. The ‘What’s New’ part listed a brand new developer, which raised just a few gamers’ hopes of continued help for the emulator. Nevertheless, this optimism didn’t final. Customers found that the brand new replace contained advertisements.
A Stunning Statment From The Fan Group Mods
It received even worse. One of many AetherSX2 Fan Group Discord moderators left a really strongly-worded assertion within the server’s announcement channel.
“Hey all. It appears Tahlreth (former AetherSX2 dev), out of spite, has sabotaged AetherSX2 on the Play Retailer. In fact, that is one more promise he has taken again about Aether being an ad-free expertise. The app now consists of advertisements and in addition appears to run worse. So I’d counsel not updating the app. Please unfold the phrase to everybody you’ll be able to to not use the brand new up to date model. Depart critiques warning folks about this new model on the Play Retailer. Don’t let Tahlzek break the android ps2 neighborhood.”
We’ve lined the earlier problems in the AetherSX2’s development, and the departure of its developer Tahlreth, who reportedly give up on account of harassment from customers.
Archived Variations Gone
Up till now, the emulator’s earlier variations have been out there to obtain, however the information received even worse.
The previously-archived variations of the emulator disappeared from the official archive on the AetherSX2 web site. Now solely the present model is accessible. The fan neighborhood Discord has archived downloads out there through its server, for many who are with out an older copy.
We can not confirm any of the claims proper now, and there was no assertion from Tahlreth or any new developer concerning the change of course for the emulator.
Actually the story of the AetherSX2 isn’t over, however it’s not the massive comeback we’d hoped for.
