Sometime around 1999, my dad took me to a vintage video game meetup in Raleigh. I was 12. There were a lot of Atari and MAME systems, maybe others. What was this event and who made it happen? [more inside]

Any chance of getting my hands on a well-documented and commented code disassembly of the original Frogger arcade game?

There used to be a MAME build called Kaillera that allowed online play. According to it's official homepage, it hasn't been updated in 7 years. It seems looney that no one has pursued this kind of idea, but I'll be darned if I can find it. Where have all the internet-multiplayer MAME builds gone?

I'm on a retro gaming binge, actively hoarding games from simpler times, mainly through emulation (C64, Amiga, MAME mostly). I'm looking for a couple of good old-style digital joysticks for the perfect experience. Suggestions? [more inside]

I'm considering venturing into the geektastic world of Mame cabinets. My dilemma is what kind of control panel setup to use, two or four player. More geekiness inside. [more inside]

OK, I've got MAME installed, and a (pretty much) complete (15Gb) set of ROMs. I've played my old favorites... Galaxian, Galaga, Gauntlet, Sonic, Mario... but now I'm daunted by the thousands
of games I have to choose from.
So what should I play next?
(assume if I don't have the ROM I can get it)

My current MAME-dedicated computer is a little too slow to play some of the newer games, so I'm looking for a replacement. Where is the cheapest place to get either a new or used computer of decent power? Also, is processor speed or RAM more important when it comes to MAME performance?
