Those are pretty good as I can tell. If you contact Robbie, he can tell if any of the photos need to be redone to be even closer.

I don't know if Robbie is busy at this time. He would be ideal person to talk to first. Jim is the other, but he may be away for now.

The person in San Antonio area does have equipment to handle early Midway hardware. I am not sure if the reader adapter will work with the roms on the GAT board.

There's another person that used to repair gambling cabs in casinos in Nevada and he could say something here, but he might be busy as well.

Hopefully someone will be able to know who to contact and help out.

Sure thing. My favorite is Ramtek's Hit Me for nostalgia reasons.

It was ideal when Aaron took over because that made the decision to also allow gambling videogame hardware to be supported as well be a non-issue.

Prior versions of MAME have excluded some drivers (primarily gambling-
related) for philosophical reasons. Since these games are legitimately at
risk of being lost to the ages, and many of them have strong similarities
to the other sorts of games MAME emulates, it has been decided to allow their
inclusion going forward. The criteria for inclusion in MAME is now simply
"any primarily video based arcade machine, driven by one of more CPUs," and
should relieve any confusion surrounding this issue going forward.

It was bound to happen. ;-) There's a couple non-cpu games with proms dumped (couple of pcbs I bought earlier) waiting to be supported whenever non-cpu support becomes a reality.


>and have had an interest over the last 12 years.

That's two years earlier before I discovered emulation. I bet waiting for the Atari Sys1 and Sys 2 hardware to be emulated back then was agonizing....especially for Marble Madness fans having to wait in late 1990s. JoseQ's Emuviews was the site I visited then in mid 2000.
