    Shouldn't be a problem, really. Because as it so happens I ALSO collect various lubricants and gels. And Tequila.

    Mame is great I just wish though that some effort would go to FINALLY emulating some of the pre-1984 games better as they seem to have been left behind and forgotten.

    Phoenix sound is still screwed up
    No sound in Taito Space Chaser, Crazy Balloon, or Sega Space Attack amongst others.
    While other games are just not emu'd at all (Taito Marine Deto. aka. Taito Marine Date).

    Not that these games are totally special or anything (or even that good), but they're the games that some of us grew up with and would LOVE to see again. Mame's supposed to be a "documentation" project anyway right? Hopefully the talented Mamedevs would leave Mahjong and CPS2 behind and give a little love and props to the old games!

    ..By the way, the background and bezel art is some one of the best releases in recent years so it's not all bad.
