thegman>From an FAQ I located about Cineroma ([link]) the following is copied:


Q. Will Cineroma run on an Iyonix ?

A. Yes.


Q. Does Cineroma use any features of the Iyonix ?

A. Indeed it does. It supports hardware overlays with the GeForce 2 (which means free scaling - with filtering - and free format conversion). Also there is some XScale specific code to speed parts up. "

So why does it have to be ROL to license and sell it, surely it would make just as much sense for Castle to make such a deal and distribute it exclusively ? Surely if you're prepared to accept an "exclusive license" situation wrt to distributing Cineroma from ROL then it should be just as welcome from Castle - or perhaps should we just let the author get on with it ?
