Agreed. The way things are done now is far easier than say how development [specifically MAME and its emulation] was done 10 years earlier.

That had to be a challenge just making sure to keep Juergen's 1999 work of Pong still working and same with Monaco GP when updates of MAME were released from years 2000 to 2012.

Better yet, maybe Robbbert could have the old method supported in HBMAME until Votrax SC-01 emulation is complete that is if Robbbert allows that to be an option in HBMAME.


My own opinion is MAME keep things as is since OG's work even if audio is still off is still progress compared to previous Votrax audio emulation actually simulation with external audio samples. The fact that preliminary Votrax audio emulation is supported is amazing since the technical info was sparingly available outside of US patents paperwork filings.


General users should stay with a specific older version of MAME for specific games since
that's what many users had to do when Keith Wilkins had made changes to centralized discrete audio emulation work and had audio for Atari Fire Truck while Atari Asteroids audio took a hit back in spring 2001 until Derrick Renaud came along and fixed up Atari Asteroids audio in late 2004.
