Robocop 2 coming to MAME! - September 01,2000 by JoseQ
Yesterday I was e-mailed by a guy that will remain as WTC about a Work In Progress driver by none other than Bryan McPhail. When I visited the site he referred me to, I was happy to see a couple of screenshots of Robocop 2 running on a preliminary MAME driver. I have confirmed this information with Bryan McPhail and the driver is indeed nearing completion, possibly finished as early as next week! I'm not sure I actually ever saw this game in the arcades, but I did like the first one, so possibly this is a cool game, and if Bryan McPhail is working on it, I will surely give it a try when it's done. Look for it in an upcoming version of MAME.

The dumper I got already dumped the rom set and it was confirmed to be a good dump like on the W.I.P page I made. He told me that some more screenshots are on the way. I saw screenshots of this game at emustatus and immediately bought the board since I saw nobody else emulating it in the near future. With the help of the dumper (thanks again) and with Bryan, it was possible to emulate it since I don't know the C language. Well, I'll put the rom set on the W.I.P page up once Bryan finished or says it's ok. Stay tuned.

mame amazes me even more by letting us play arcades we all remember and love. Robocop 2 has been a long time coming as the dataeast arcade was on par with the first, if not better. so hurry up with that rom man.

I'm from Brazil and some games never came to here. Robocop 2 is an example. Thanks to the Mame team to make possible we know so many things about arcades. Thanks to Bryan too...

From:
I remember getting all the way to the end of Robocop 2 in the arcades and everyone was crowded around the cabinet as I took on Cain on the final level, unfortuantely I ran out of credits just before I was about to finish him off!!! I can't wait to settle the score with this game thanks to MAME!!

I agree it is a good game, all I can remember was you could throw arcade cabinets at your enemies , and the speech was really funny,the punks said something like "were going to take you to the junkyard"over & over again most amusing.
