hmm I'll shamelessly highjack this thread!

The best mame game EVAR!!!1 is definitely Gradius 3 =D

This game is soooo hard, and having unlimited moneys won't make it any easier! It is sooo well thought, I think I have spent months playing only this.


now my problem is that it's way to "new" to be on our mame emulator.

Thus my hijacking and my asking of a question that's probably been answered a thousand time: Why is it that we can only run 0.34 roms? (or whatever that version number was)

You can flame me as long as you also answer the question =P hehehe

Poyon
Mappy
son son
Rally X
Tag Team Wrestling
snow bros
Crash
Bust a move
dkong 3
gng
mspacman
Super Basketball (but I don't think that works on gp2x)
Mr. Do
Mr. DO Run! RUn!
Crush Roller
Eagle (kind of like Galaxian and with stackable guns)

Lots of others and I'm sure I've complete forgotten ones I play frequently as well.

Because of later versions need more processing power and would have compatibility problems ; so a version that would work stable and at decent speed was ported ; or something like that if I remember correctly

Well ; about the games ; I can count hundreds of them ; but for the 0.34 version ; I don't know much except classics such as galaga and pac man

In no order, but late just the same:

Son Son
Donkey Kong
Puzzle Bobble (Bust a Move)
Qix
Zoo Keeper
Magic Sword
Gyruss
Frogger
Kick

Now, my reasons are different from most of you I think. I own about 15 real arcade video games. I have some of these games and have had some in the past. It's a shame that some games just can't be played on this hardware because of controls and such - Star Wars is an amazing real arcade machine but MAME just doesn't feel right without a flight controller (and a real vector monitor).
