the original game sources? no, that's very, very, very unlikely, most of the time we're lucky to even have dumps of the roms, most of the sources probably don't even exist anywhere these days.

that doesn't mean you can't fix bugs in the original games, you can always disassemble the code in the roms, study it, use the MAME debugger to help you trace bits of it, work out what they do etc. but that's the best you can do for 99.9% of cases.
