Ok, now I'm sure you are all going to think "he just didn't notice", or "clearly the guy's just out of his mind"...but I SWEAR that isn't the case!
So, EVERY time there is a new release of MAME, I glimpse through the whatsnew.txt to look for any changes I will find interesting. Granted, i just glance through it, but I get the gist of what the changes are. Also, I will launch a few games and go to the slider controls to see if anything in there was changed or new features added. I especially look at the vector settings. This last release of MAME, I noticed a new vector setting. Popped out at me right when I brought up the slider options. It said "Beam Dot Size". I adjusted it and was THRILLED how it made the Asteroids laser blasts bigger, making them look more arcade accurate. I was very excited about this NEW addition!!!
So, I've been using MAME version 0.227 mostly, since all updates after that didn't really effect me one way or the other. I went back to this version of MAME to notice that this setting was in there also! I honestly swear on a stack of bibles, it was never there before and I just saw it added as of version 0.230!!! I didn't just overlook it all this time! I had the vector setting memorized and I'd constantly mess with the settings to see which ones I liked better. I would have noticed that setting a long time ago! So, I am VERY happy that this has been added to MAME, but I know it wasn't there all this time!!! Out of curiosity, when did this feature get introduced?
Thank you for your attention in this matter
