Operation Wolf I thought was better in the arcade version. Cleaner, crisper graphics and more responsive. And of course the guns.

No matter where you went, there always seemed to be a cabinet for Operation Wolf. No matter what arcade, there seemed to be one anywhere you went.

I also remember seeing a couple labelled "Operation Wulf" - not sure why though, but it was the same game.

Nowdays any arcade game is usually MAME for me,back in the day i played a lot of Ghost`n Goblins,Gauntlet II,Marble Madness and R-type on Amiga and to be honest i still could load up the Amiga versions of those games today without complaint.

Interesting thread . I have the full set for each machines, including coin-op games for MamePlus! of course. It really depends about the game, often the arcade version is better but the amiga version is sometimes better (pang, midnight resistance, silkworm, rodland, ...) or as good as the arcade (arkanoid 1, ...)... But i like to see the diffrences too, and especially, i think that to prefer one or other version depends about the feeling and events attached to a certain game. For example, for me the arcade version of Golden Axe is the only one (even if i played it on amiga and still have it) because i played the first time in a public place with a friend. We finished it with 10 coins hahaha and had so much laugths and fun that everytime i am launching it today, the game is attached with this evening .

I do not like emulating that much, so I donīt use MAME very often. But: It really - like many have said before - depends on the game. E.g. "Out Run" is a no-go on Amiga (...or Cisco Heat, or Turbo Out Run, or Chase HQ or SCI) but nice on MAME.

I have both a Mamecade and a MAS SuperNova, so I prefer either emulation of the real deal, or the real deal itself.

Perfection - usually the MAME version is better, with exceptions of course. Many times though, the music is better on the Amiga. I would think this is due to the audio factor not being important for arcades, cabinet limitations (muffled sound) and to the mastery and dedication of Amiga artists who took over the conversion.

Wow, you got a real washing machine arcade cabinet? (seriously, since the cable seems to go inside the drum on the picture)

That one where you play some detergent and shoot the stains with the controller?

lol, the cable in the back is actually the kickharness connector (to wire buttons 4-6 in games like street fighter) and the grey cable is running to the joystick.

no need for a CRT to have true arcade quality screen in MAME, just add scanlines to bring back CRT looks on an LCD.
And use an LCD with a pivoting screen, so you can put it in portrait mode for those games requiring it (set rotation in game properties), so you never have to worry about black borders. 19" or higher 4:3 or 16:10 monitor, not the common 16:9 widescreen LCD.
And use a competition pro joystick to play, makes it even more genuine

Amiga games mentioned here already get my vote too, but do not forget SIDEWINDER from 1988 which was identical on Amiga, because the arcade version was... powered by a modded A500 board! Same for Lemmings btw, but Sidewinder was an awesome vertical shmup with cool sfx and smooth scrolling.
