I hate the holier than thou sentiment that most people in the emulation field have, you know that like 99% or greater of the people that use these products do not own even 1 damn arcade board, let alone everyone they have a rom for.

You say you're doing it for keeping a historical record, what good are records if you cannot use them, no one will EVER use the mapping of an arcade boards inner workings for anything but playing that game, or perhaps using it to figure out how to emulate another arcade board so they can emulate that game.

MAME is great, i just don't see why so many people who are 'high up' with MAME seem to think that anyone actually only emulates the games they own. Get real.

There's no reason for the MAME team to include 6 and 7 in their little legal statement. It's not their responsibility so they have no legal bearing on this issue. They say you can't even drop a name of a game that isn't included in the auction, why not? There are so many ridiculously misleading auctions on eBay, someone looking for a MAME cabinet knows exactly what they are getting, we don't need this BS from the team to just drive people nuts.

'cause a big nothin it'll be for me
