It's unfortunate how that all worked out.
"FAKE NEWS" says the "Cheeto"-lini sob in office one more time before Mueller's future unsealed indictments take him out.
Delusional statement in his demented mind: "I shall make roms available. They will be BIGGER, BOLDER, and MORE BEAUTIFUL than ever before. They will be BIGLY."
>Atari knows he owns it, too, so they'd know who'd released it should it happen.
I am not sure Atari would know or care at this point. If it is not a game play product that does 3D gaming, the 2D stuff is a money loser. The retro packs that were marketed in 1990s till 2010, would have been their marketing target and we are past that point.
Maybe it will fall off of a turnip truck and someone will come along and somehow grab parts and pieces of the fallen cab and somehow roms will survive and be dumped and somehow magically make their way into MAME by unknown helpful elfs (unlike the munchkin elf AG of US...former senator from AL).
