Re: Model 2 nostalgia for the "new batch"

>>Maybe someone will do a new one for Taito Type X hardware?


>What is the story behind Taito Type X ?

The sentence was a sarcasm comment (unfunny humor), but nothing against the newer games or anything specific. It was if someone had lots of spare time to create or reuse actual screen images and make it appear as if a game was actually running in MAME. That is what Santeri S. / Gridle (old MAME.net web site maintainer) actually did way back in 2002 and his photoshop and excellent editing work actually fooled dozens of users that those users became upset that Gridle fooled them that day back in 2002.

The source maintenance way back in those days was usually sent in to a single lead maintainer (none of this online source viewing fancy stuff users can take for granted) or users can compile their own builds before an official release. Any screen snap showing an improvement was huge news back then where users then could comment with "oooohs" and "ahhhs".

This was where Gridle could take advantage of knowing that and create some phony, but realistic Model 2 game images and it fooled a fair amount of users in 2002. It was a pretty smart and bold stunt that could be gotten away with compared to these past 6 years in which source is now online and users could quickly verify that Gridle was pulling an April Fools joke.

What Gridle did then could not be done in this day and age......unless someone that has Gridle's talent could make it look like Entertainment Science's Bouncer appears emulated in MAME in some future April Fools stunt. :-) *kidding*
