The godfather of MAME... Yeah, he doesn't really have much involvement these days (if any at all).

His blog has been dead for years

LOL; took me ages to get all the ROMS in those days via modem but I still did as I wanted them sooooo bad

Oh me too; when I first discovered MAME it was like all my dreams had come true. All the original arcade games that I had played from say from 7 years old to up 20.

...and when Capcom CPS1 + 2 & Neo-Geo games were emulated

I even bought myself 2 x HotRod SE joysticks (in case one broke) back in 2001 or something to make the whole experience better: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=ho...HSNdASQQsAQIIg
