I'm not TRYING to do anything. As I stated, it works for me. I was just curious why other hacks are in MAME and this one isn't, especially when things like the Space Invaders Multi-board are. Was THAT in an arcade to? And since the Outrun Enhanced is a very simple upgrade, how do you know it hasn't been in an arcade - especially when there are forums of people talking about putting it in their machines in arcades? And by your criteria, wouldn't a large number of prototypes have to be removed from MAME? Many of them never saw the outside of the manufacturers building, let alone an arcade.
Also, I read on a different forum that PacManicMinerMan (a PC/platform only game) would possibly make it into official MAME if it were in a cabinet that was bought and sold... NOT if it was in an arcade. I would say the likelihood of PacManicMinerMan being in an arcade is far less likely than OutRun Enhanced being in an arcade.
