Yes. Derrick could hardly say it better.

MAME is the greatest free program to ever grace the internet.

Due to its contributors, it has evolved from small beginnings to the giant leviathan of a program we have today. Catering for multiple controllers, operating systems, Mac & PC, 32 & 64 bit. It has a choice of frontends and packed with all sorts of features. It emulates games over a timespan of over 25 years of videogame history.

Because none of its many features have been "rushed out" to meet production deadlines, the result is, for the most part, one of the most professional pieces of software you'll ever see! It can now successfully emulate some processor intensive 3D games that weren't even in the arcade when the first version was released with a smattering of 80s games.

But being evolved, sometimes that evolution takes a direction that might not cater for exactly what you would like to see, whether that be support for the original controller in a given game or supporting a strangely configured computer.

For example, I would love to see midi support, so I could play my synthesiser on my favourite game, Beatmania.

What will be my reaction if that doesn't happen in the near future?

"WAAAAHHH!! BOO HOO!!!! I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!!"

... erm .. this is free, of course. The only people who pay are those white knights who donate to the project for the benefit of all users. Or run the websites which help keep things up and running.

Thanks to their efforts, our computers can have a museum of unique working arcade games, which would need a sports stadium to house in the non-virtual world.


So - to anyone who wants to start making demands of the development team, chucking your toys & games (several thousand of them) out of the pram and into daddy's (the developer's) face because your favourite one doesn't work as you want - why don't you do the decent thing, delete MAME from your computer and see if you can find ANY piece of professional software that does the same thing, and updates as regularly? Then, and only then, will you be able to play the disgruntled customer.

Enough of that, I'm off to have some fun ...
My new 64-bit computer is able to play Tekken3 and a bunch of other 3d monsters that my old system couldn't handle. (and the beauty of the program is that it caters for all systems - so many games, lots of fun).

Thankyou developers!
