Don't mistake the responses you've received for people being pissed-off. It's just that your question happens to be one that completely misses the point of the warning screens being there in the first place.

So you have a working, ready-to-go solution at your fingertips. Excellent! Except:

Ah, there's the crux of the matter.

Two parts to this answer:

1) See Haze's reply for an answer to the authenticity question.

2) Building on 1) above and speaking as someone who also runs MAME in a cabinet, it's really not that big of a deal. By definition MAME cabinets didn't exist in arcades back in the day, so accepting that you're playing old games on a modern platform (and everything that goes along with that, for good, bad, or the minorly-inconvenient) is probably for the best.

I think it's safe to say that we all understand what it is that you're aiming for.

Violating the rules of the forum? Doubtful. Now read my next reply:

Congratulations! You did exactly that, and as part of that process gained a better understanding as to why those warnings are there.

Try this: walk into a biker bar (one with real bikers, not dentists and accountants out on their Harleys for the weekend) and ask a few people why they're a bunch of greasy, foul-smelling tattooed longhairs. Now see what happens next.

Summary: don't try to play the victim after you ask a question and receive answers to that question that you hadn't anticipated (or wanted).

Now go take a look at the advice krick gave you in this reply, which pretty much hands you everything you need to know to make what you want do happen.
