Indeed, the only real coverage I saw of MAME's 20th anniversary was hijacked, mainly focusing on MAME emulating Primal Rage 2, ignoring everything else that has happened.

Had RL friends asking me about it too, saying we're on a roll for doing cool things with PGM2 and now this... yet neither is actually suitable for inclusion in MAME.

Considering all the cool stuff that IS being done, it's rather depressing.

(for PR2 I have no problem with what the guy did, he followed the rules, released the source etc. it's just the media coverage that has been disappointing, showing a complete lack of understanding)
