If MAME were the only thing people wanted to use it for, yes. But a lot of folks, not all of them young cusses, want to be able to run....stuff....like SFIV on the same system.
Soft15khz is the option over trying to convert your card to an AVGA. I mean, come on, kids. I prefer to play with soft15 versus hunting for an AVGA. Of course, even more fun was finding that an old pci card I bought in lot of 'junk' cards to use as a 'dummy' card, happened to be a Riva TNT (16mb). AdvanceMAME anyone?! On on old PII with win98 (or even '95), hell yeah! I don't know whether I'll ever use that thing - but it just feels cool ta have around!
Consider it high comedy....sincere tragedy....whatever...don't take it personally.
