The VGA Tweaking Utility RivaTuner has changed a lot over the years, and so has its creator. TPU talks with 'Unwinder' about software development and the role he played in starting the softmod community.
Despite modifying ATI and NVIDIA software and making their job more difficult, Alex says he has a good relationship with both vendors and their product partners. He has even received job offers from both sides but chooses to remain independent and live with his family in Russia. And while he hasn’t planned any new projects, he says he will continue to develop software for RivaTuner. When asked if he has any advice for someone beginning to tackle soft-modding he remembers back to his days working with SoftQuadro. “Patience, patience and patience again. Once you have a goal in front of you and enough patience, you can always reach it.”
