Same goes for Neo Geo games, really. In some of the custom MAME builds people rolled, they'd "correct" the resolution of some of the games to discard the garbage on the side of the screen when in reality it was always there to begin with and arcade operators were expected to adjust it off the screen.

Since MAME takes pixel perfect screenshots it doesn't really help kill off the aspect ratio confusion (look at the CPS2 shots on MAWS, for example), which is another reason why I so strongly advocate using a program like FRAPS for snagging screenshots within emulators.

too long; didn't read version: My wife picked up Cooking Mama today for DS instead of picking up food to actually cook, so I'm eating a soy bean burger on a piece of white toast with a glass of pink lemonade for dinner.
