I'm fairly sure the target will go away soon anyway, or at the very least be much more difficult to build/maintain as things at a core level more towards closer integration and build targets more based on hardware / manufacturers than if the software running increments a counter that allows other inputs to work given a certain input.
The 'mame board' might consist of at least one absolute cunt who seems to care less about actual progress and more about telling me I've broken the rules by inventing new ones and threatening any devs who work with me with their status being removed too*, but at least they have the project direction right in that sense.
* and yes, this pisses me off, I worked with Osso on several drivers for the last release. I submitted things to Osso because he had directly asked me to look at them, so I was answering to him. He also worked on them, improved them etc. and was then reprimanded by a certain 'MAME board' member for committing them just because I'd worked on them 'without review' and apparently should have submitted them directly. In my opinion cutting out the person who had asked me to do the work, and who I was working with would have been just plain rude, you submit to who you're working with.
Shame, because I thought the toxicity of the team had lessened, but always some new way to show how low they've fallen, invented rules every chance they get. I think I'm just going to have to leave things and let them rot when nobody else looks at them unfortunately, because now I can't even work with somebody else on request without either being rude towards them or apparently breaking some new bullshit rule.
