Like i've said before, i don't see any interest in adding such a lot of Fruit Machines Games (over 5000), working or not (and it is not related wih the fact to have or not a complete MAME Romset)...MAME is the acronym for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator so i could understand that people like me are very surprised by this choice and the addition of these games that have no direct relation with arcade (same for Pinball games).
MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. When used in conjunction with images of the original arcade game's ROM and disk data, MAME attempts to reproduce that game as faithfully as possible on a more modern general-purpose computer. MAME can currently emulate several thousand different classic arcade video games from the late 1970s through the modern era.
Now if the choice of MAME TEAM is to become a Mechanical Amusement Machine Emulator and/or Multiple Amusement Machine Emulator and add all mechanical/fruit/gambling/casino/bar/mahjong/consoles/PC/arcades games, etc...No problemo but maybe it's time to inform us about the new directions taken by the MAME Team.
On a side note, we ALL are not only ROMs' collectors but also users (and sometimes we submit Dumps, make donations and/or report bugs) so sometimes thought to treat us in a different way than just a leecher and/or someone who wants to see Miss 0 in his/her romset with his/her favorite Rommanager!
