Re: Doorway drug.
Had to go check that my ROMs were still in my cabinet with all these ROM thieves running about as you say. It's OK, they are.
Funny thing is that if someone really did steal my ROM chips, I could use the ones the MAME users have to re-program some real ones for me. I'm curious, how much does Nintendo charge for a new set of Donkey Kong replacement ROMs? Oh, wait, that's right they don't sell them anymore.
If it wasn't for a lot of those MAME programmers (and their ROMs), a lot of old games would just be gone.
