Thanks for this BBOWL

Surely the 2nd stage is in the "swamp" and not a "cave"?

I like your work. I've liked all of the videos I've watched so far and I'll share them.

Please consider updating your playlists to include the newer "History of..." videos.

If you're looking for another thing to look into :

"Marble Madness" is a good one, you can discuss the unreleased "Marble Man" sequel which was rediscovered years later and is widely emulated using Mame. An of course the then 18yo author of Marble Madness, Mark Cerney is a living video games legend designing games such as "Sonic the Hedgehog 2", "Crash Bandcoot", "Spyro the Dragon", "Uncharted, "Ratchet and Clank", "Knack" and lots more

That can't be true alexh, I've got a complete ROM set for v0.200 and "Marble Man" is not there...

So did some Google'ing and found this: http://lostmediaarchive.wikia.com/wi...1_Arcade_Game))

There are also numerous other webpages saying that the guy who owns 2 different types of the original machine (one with joysticks / one with trackballs) won't part with the ROMs unless people pay $50,000...

Seems so. I was sure that this game was one of those that around about 2003 being a very limited hardware architecture started a flurry of Mame activity. Perhaps the ROM was given to them and the driver written but the ROM never leaked.

Yeah, from reading up more it seems that the ROMs have been dumped and the source code compiled in MAME but unfortunately they will not be released to the public

Also, there's this interesting account of how one personal managed to get a working machine: The story of Marble Madness II: Marble Man

"Marble Madness II: Marble Man" is a similar story to what happened with "Kung Fu Master 2"

Another prototype; someone has the board but won't dump the ROMs for MAME inclusion

There's some information on the MAME Forums and probably a lot of other stuff scattered around the internet.
