Quote: You guys don't know the origins of MAME or understand how developers think.
Stop with this patronising bullshit why don't you.
I've been following Mame since 1997 and one of the universal constants down the years has been the arrogant, chippy, contemptuous attitude many of the devs have had towards those outside of your little clique world.
You're just a continuing example of that attitude.
Me personally, I couldn't care less about such changes, all the games I'm interested in have LONG since been emulated as well as they ever will be, so MAME could disappear off the internet tomorrow and I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.
You guys go ahead and make any changes you want that make you happy.
Many of us though would appreciate it if you stopped talking to the rest us like we're inconvenient dog turds that you guys have to negotiate around in your oh so exclusive world.
