I'm curious RB. My understanding of the MAME code base is very limited, but I understand enough to know that the drivers have undergone many architecture revisions. Nevertheless, I could still be talking completely out of my ass here... Would I be correct in assuming that you can't take (for example) the current Donkey Kong driver and replace the one in the 0.37b5 source, and expect it to compile, much less work? I think part of what prevents MAME4All from adopting the improvements may be a lack of understanding on how to take the drivers in their current form, and retro them back to 0.37. As for why someone doesn't take 0.143 source code and adapt it to Android, would I again be correct in assuming that MAME was more portable (in the compiler sense) back in 0.37 than it is today? I thought modern MAME leverages x86 and x64 architecture much more so today than it did in the past.
