Emulator freezes without access to Internet. #71
Please fill out this form:
It doesn't freeze.
If there's no access to the Internet, the emulator freezes after the main window appears at startup.
Steps to reproduce the behavior
void GameArea::OnIdle(wxIdleEvent& event)
Operating System (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.):
Interface (wx, SDL, default is wx):
Version of code (pre-built binary version, or commit ref, or just "master"):
Any other relevant build information:
If this is e.g. a joystick or video issue, then the relevant hardware information:
Remove the "check for updates" and "Update ROM database" menu entries, as well as the automatic update checking and all supporting code. This fixes the issue with the emulator hanging without access to the internet. Updating code will be reimplemented in the future using something like Sparkle. wxHTTP does not support redirects or https so is pretty much useless now. Also update the About box to bump copyright year to 2017 and change my name to "rkitover", which is what I use on github, and mention other contributors.
