is typing everything you do in a command line too complicated? of course not but do we say who needs drag and drop at all?
It's not an attack on the work, it's request for an improvement, and a darn good one at that.
everyone knows how to drag and drop, but it is tedious, everyone knows we can sit and read down the list (and on a small screen it can be difficult to read or even press the slot) and play the disk juggler swapping game. Yes it would take a few minutes to modify the software. It's not too involved compared to the rest of the work that's been done.
It's a functional improvement everyone could enjoy, rather than a picture of a cassette tape in motion or a picture of a spinning disk drive which looks pretty but serves no functional purpose.
Why not add a nifty feature.. Why do guard so much about it, taking it like some sort of weird attack. This would bring it up to the level of any good app on a phone or computer, the most done with as few moves or eye strain to do it.
It would be nice, it would be efficient, and it helps those with failing eye sight... and it's more like the real thing, which is the goal. It's a good idea. It helps people with other difficulties as well. It's good all around.
The other fellow was all about sessions which I thought already worked but 'might' be broken, for him, I haven't double checked. If it needs to be fixed, then it should, if it can be improved, why not? otherwise it's not of use and might just as well not even be there by the reasoning set forth.
A good deal of people whom have been to visit with me, enjoy my time, my company, and my Atari... they however don't appreciate me fumbling about interrupting game flow and messing up juggling the disks in and out of the slots.. and yes I let them do it for me sometimes... and they look and say why can't I just press a button to put the other side in. It seems natural, and I don't argue with them about it because their simple question is one I also agree with. It would make it a joy instead of a nuisance chore, after all they're here to conquer a fleet of ships, or destroy bad guys in a city or dungeon, or help lemming like creatures get home. I sometimes fire up real drive to play games with more than one side, because it's easier for visitors and for me. It's just quicker to flip the real disk, but it shouldn't be. I figure the software solution should be better to deal with than real drives and real floppies. They think so too.
I'd appreciate it as would others. Such an improvement would make this the better 'go to' peripheral emulation choice.
I like having both side lined up, on deck so to speak, and since others are saying the same, it's probably a good idea..
