Quote: To the extent that people unfamiliar with desktop MAME are going to play this on their phones, it's damaging our reputation a little.
Why would it damaging your reputation? Are you implying that the developers merits on Pre .37 builds are somewhat inferior to the current caretakers of Mame?
Should we not celebrate the efforts of the developers such as Neil Bradley, Zonn Moore and the father of the project, Nicola Salmoria to the new and future contributors of Mame?
Did you work on Mame during this period Mr. Belmont? Is that where you draw on that reflection? Or is it due to all those fancy additions like HLSL that makes the current Mame more superior for the mass audience?
