yeah, sorry if that wasn't clear from my post. the MAME emulations of these things are 100% emulation.
things like the MADrigal collections are 100% remakes, not running any of the original game code at all.
but dumping them is a difficult, and often destructive task; only a few people can do it.
0.173 includes SVG rendering, and we include the SVG traces of the video part in the romsets too FWIW.
