I've recently retested using offcial Mame and also IV/Play Qmc2 and also emuloader. I didn't like any of them, either their too complicated or and has a bunch of of features that are not really necessary to the average user who just wants to play Arcade games, it's nuts. I've been using Mame32 since about 2002. If I'd have to pick a runner up it would probably have to be offcial Mame, but I've issues with it, that I don't understand why certain things work as they do. I wished John would have just stuck with MameUI.
Is it true years back Mame32/MameUI was the most popular Mame variant by far ?
Does anybody know how many people still use MameUI is the number large enough that it will keep getting updated for many many years to come ?
I'm not expecting new features in future updates, so how difficult is it just to keep it going ?
How many people still work on it I'm hoping it's not just one person.
