Happy 15th Anniversary MAME!
From the MAME website:
Happy 15th Anniversary! Over its 15 years of existence since MAME 0.01 was released for MS-DOS with an initial library of 5 sets, MAME has grown exponentially to the point that no one thought we would be, boasting 18,650 different sets and operable on more OS platforms than thought possible. While video-based arcade games were the original targets for MAME, the scope of the project has grown to include documentation of virtually all coin-operated amusement devices including gambling (video/slots), coin droppers, pinball machines and more. Through the efforts of the literally thousands of developers, players and others who have provided assistance and feedback over the project´s history, we would like to thank all of them that made this possible!
