    It has only been one year since I stumbled on video game emulation quite by accident, and in my humble opinion, I think it's the greatest technical development since the VCR. I can't begin to imagine the amount of work that these developers have contributed, but I REALLY appreciate it! (On a side note, has anybody heard of a game called CATAPULT? It was an amusing game I played in the arcades in the 80's which I have yet to see mentioned).

    Well, I dunno about you guys, but the addition I'm most enthused about here is the VSNES driver support - allowing play of games like Duck Hunt, Hogan's Alley, VS Pinball, Dr. Mario and VS Ice Climber. (All of which were some of my favorites from the old arcades.)

    It's interesting to see the differences in these games as compared to their NES home system counterparts. There were some pretty significant ones... and for the most part, they were pretty challenging games, too - even if simplistic in concept.

    Look for some new reviews soon!

    I think that they should look more at the quality of the emulated material rather than quantity. Now, I kwon they're doing a GRAT job, but why are games like OutRun, Super Hang-On, Mortal Kombat 2 and Kaizer Knuckle umplayable? They shold make this ones playable befor adding new ones, or better yet, fix these AND add others.

    Eu penso que eles deviam olhar mais para a qualidade da emulação mais do que para a quantidade. Pronto, eu sei que eles fazem um bom trabalho, mas porque é que estão jogos como OutRun, Super Hang-On, Mortal Kombat 2 e Kaizer Knuckle injogaveis? Eles deviam por estes a trabalhar antes de adicionarem outros, ou melhor, arranjar estes E adicionar outros.

    Well, maybe I'm just asking too much...
    Bem, talvez eu esteja a pedir demais...

    I agree completely. I don't want to sound ungreatful because I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into mame but I would rather see the games that are already emulated run smoother instead of adding more games.

    That's a selfish attitude. MAME is a volunteer project and contributors work on what is interesting to them. Just because the games that have been supported happen to already include the ones you care about doesn't mean development should stop on others. Besides, if "smoothness" is all you care about, you can invest in a faster computer. It would be a far cheaper investment than starting a massive PCB collection.

    Have to agree with you there, Phil - One just can't imagine how much work goes into MAME - and emulating a game like MK2 most certainly isn't easy - so if it doesn't run smooth on lower spec machines it just doesn't - final story - The best part about mame is about waiting to see what new games are supported. How boring will it be if new verions of MAME gets released without a single game being added to it, the whatsnew.txt file will just never be the same again...

    Okay, so smoothness can be fixed with a faster pc. Emulation ACCURACY is another matter. I agree that mame is fantastic, who could say that it isn't? but it seems that while everyone enjoys emulating new roms, not many people want to do the less exciting but important job of improving games that don't run 100%. I too would like to see more work done on the many games that seem to have been partially emulated in mame and then abandoned.

    okay, so before anyone says it...

    "why don't you do it yourself then?"

    No can do. Don't have the skills, knowledge, or really, the interest in such hard-core technical stuff.

    "In that case, then, shut up and stop attacking the mame crew you pathetic ungrateful lamer."

    Wasn't an attack, wasn't a demand, merely my opinion. Seems to me like the emulation scene has become polarised into ungrateful swine and toady bootlickers....

    ANYWAY

    On the subject of new roms, there is ONE game I used to play in the arcade, I don't know whether it's been emulated or not, but it's one of the only old games I remember which I haven't seen...I don't know what it was called though cause the title was in Japanese. But it was a platform game, with a little guy who lobbed fireballs... he started in a forest, he could collect a blue cloak, and inbetween each level there was a shop. It had 2 layer parallax...there was a castle level where steam rose up through vents, and briefly formed the shape of a skull...anyone know what this game was, and if it's been emulated?

    And if you look at one final version to the next, MAME does a FAR better job with accuracy than any other emulator, hands down. Accuracy is Nicola's number one priority.

    >it seems that while everyone enjoys emulating
    >new roms

    And old ones - Ninja Kid circa 1984 ;)

    >not many people want to do the less exciting but
    >important job of improving games that don't run
    >100%.

    There is always a list of improvements listed in the "what's new" file with each new release, and many more minor ones that don't get publically announced. Well over 70% of submissions on the MAME mailing list are incremental fixes to existing games.

    >I too would like to see more work done on the
    >many games that seem to have been partially
    >emulated in mame and then abandoned.

    Example?
