It can (I did it just the other day on my Macbook Pro), but the emulation isn't true to the hardware. It's hard coded to be a center and a right and left side, but in reality each side could be set to one of 59 different viewing angles (and there's nothing stopping you from adding ALL 59 different angles...you simply split the serial output of the center into the serial input of ALL your additional displays and then set each one to the angle you want).

I mean it's awesome that it does what it does, and one can say it *is* true to the production game in the only form it actually appeared. But it's not true to the hardware. Having looked at the code, I don't think it's *far* from being true to the hardware in the sense of adding screens. But the missing serial port support seems to mean that one can't use MAME to emulate *just* the center or *just* the side screens, either. That's the part I'd really love to find out how to fix.
