MAME 0.145
« on: 06 February 2012, 11:49 »


MAME 0.145 whatsnew :
Happy 15th Anniversary!  Over its 15 years of existence since MAME
0.01 was released for MS-DOS with an initial library of 5 sets, MAME
has grown exponentially to the point that no one thought we would be,
boasting 18,650 different sets and operable on more OS platforms than
thought possible.  While video-based arcade games were the original
targets for MAME, the scope of the project has grown to include
documentation of virtually all coin-operated amusement devices
including gambling (video/slots), coin droppers, pinball machines and
more.  Through the efforts of the literally thousands of developers,
players and others who have provided assistance and feedback over the
project's history, we would like to thank all of them that made this
