Great app, thanks for all the time you put in these emulators. Know that you are appreciated by those who love these old games. Some people who offer blanket reviews and 1 star are just ignorant.

The jum emulator is the best and only stand alone emulator for the Atari 5200o Super System.

I asked the author why I had to continually update their software and if they could do a software update program for their software to make the lives of their users much easier instead of having to download a new copy almost monthly, unstuff it and replace the old version.

It gets even more complex with the Emulator Enhancer add on which also needs regular updates.

This is the reply that I recieved when I voiced these concerns:

"I see no need for automatic updating, as such a feature provides a whole lot of dead traffic to my web site - which
has to be paid for - and is a relatively minor issue as anyone who looks at my web page can quickly see what the latest versions are."
-Richard Bannister March 13, 2006

So all we, the users, are to the author is traffic. This concept of visiting a website would be a decent idea in the ideal world but must be a complete headache for the modem users, the people that lack a constant internet connection and the people who actually want to play these emulators.

If the author desires so much traffic then maybe he can do so by providing some content on the webpage such as more information/help files/forums on the products he offers instead of forced updates.

I want to run an application that works, not a car that needs tuneups, upgrades add ons and trips to get serviced.
