    Have I missed something? If this is to be the future as it surely should be where are it's Mobile cousins? I kept scrolling down for an Android or iOS version, I suspect the authors have signalled their intent with the title Retro. I feel lucky to be able to get it working on a laptop! I wonder if they would prefer that I use a green screen? I gave support 5 as I have no means of assessing I needed n/a

    Great project. The GUI has some bugs and the compilation process is not straightforward, especially on modern platforms (e.g. OSX Mavericks)

    A fantastic project, I just wish the development process was more open.

    Great project, easily compiled, the whole key exchange processed might be explained in a bit more details, but otherwise everything great!
