....finding MAME on the Internet
Before the net it was dark days for old game
lovers. When the net came into a few homes in the late 90's and was
getting affordable, the gaming community could at last contact each other.
and there were the emulators. it was a shock to the system that you could
play your ZX81 games on your brand new PC and even better download all the
games you wanted for it and play them. then you came across MAME. Arcade
games in your home. Fantastic. Remember when you were amazed that you
could also insert coin, or mess around with the dipswitches that you did
not know were there (always wondered why Star Wars had different shield
settings on various machines) and using Dave's classics to download your
new MAME roms from? fun weekends of beer and gaming afoot.
