Re: Model 2 nostalgia for the "new batch"
03/08/18 11:06 PM



"new batch" was the given description for the newcomers/new posters back in old MW era where the "Welcome to Hell lurkers" banner was displayed on Loonybin forum when it was crazy then.


Two specific dated achievements in MAME although there are many others.


06-10-2012 first non-cpu game that is finally given green light to be supported and not removed unlike first version of Pong done in 1999.

03-08-2018 first officially considered working Model 2 game

Motor Raid - Twin [Angelo Salese, R. Belmont, Olivier Galibert, ElSemi]





Nostalgia post from (04/18/14) to remind the amusing moments in old MAME.net era days when it was April Fools 2002 and what took place on old MAME.net back then. It looks like Model 2 April Fools will now be put to pasture. Maybe someone will do a new one for Taito Type X hardware?

..for any of the long time emulation followers that remember the 2002 April Fools joke that Gridle had pulled with Model 2 wip update on old MAME.net web site.




For those that had never visited old MAME.net web site, the site maintainer "Santeri S. / Gridle" would type up MAME wip moments so users could see what was completed over a few days and maybe what to expect in a future MAME release. For April Fools day in 2001 Gridle did a light-hearted wip update that made fun of MAMEdevs, but it was clever and well done without getting users upset.

For April Fools day MAME wip update in 2002, Gridle had posted a Model 2 emulation update that showed 'doctored' images of Model 2 games running in MAME. The chat forums were filled with lots of over-excited fans waiting to try Model 2 emulation in a future release of MAME. When it was discovered later in the day that it was an April Fools prank by Gridle, there were several upset "kidz" that were dismayed that it was a joke by Gridle. A few posted swearing so the forum had to be cleaned up with a few posts having to be deleted.

Model 2 games were not emulated until another few more years had passed...maybe around 2004 or 2005 iirc.

I thought it was a clever April Fools stunt that Gridle pulled in 2002, but not a surprise that some users were to react like that regarding the 2002 April Fools prank of Model 2 being emulated because in 2001 when CPS-2 was first emulated by using XOR files created by Razoola there was huge excitment because an emulator "finalburn" was running some of the CPS-2 games. When the author (Dave) decided to stop doing any more supporting of CPS-2 games, the "kidz" just went nuts with the usual "internet-type" threats on Dave and any others involved with emulator "finalburn" back around spring 2001.

Glad that is now ancient history and most of the "spastic troublemaker kidz" back then have long left and moved on.
