These two work fine in MAMECE-10X (Pacman even with sound). I don't know why they wouldn't be working in Mameboy.

Don't hold your breath for any of these.

The size of the samples isn't really a problem so much as the fact that samples don't work at all with the source currently as it is. I, too, would love to have sample support for SI; however sound programming is one of my many weak points.

I've played Marble Madness on my Caio E-100.
It was *painfully* slow. Disabling the sound CPU on Marble Madness (and similar hardware, Atari System 1) isn't really easy since it also handles detecting a coin being inserted.
