    Thank you for getting me up to speed. This code looks fine to me, and my basic test of compiling it and running it in Windows 10 with RetroArch worked fine.

    Therefore, I'm going to go ahead and put in a PR to add everything except the `zim/ZIM` extension support. Thank you for working on this and I'm glad to look over any more improvements like this that come out of your work with this hardware.

    Here's a link to the MAME 2000 PR: https://github.com/libretro/mame2000-libretro/pull/69

    Cool! The zim is just a hack for this device, you would not expect to have it in the official code. :)

    Thanks for submitting the pull-request.

    Interesting, the other two links work fine. Have to email and see if the link is broken for legends.

    ROFL! They ADMIT IT!

    this is funny. :)

    as for why you can't add mame games with stock firmware....

    this quote from mamedev

    "After signing an agreement, cabinet owners that include legitimate licensed ROMs may be permitted to include a version of MAME that runs those ROMs and nothing more."

    Since atgames licensed every rom, and the bundled mame core only runs roms they have licensed, they are legally allowed to put it in, even though the versions are before the GPL change.

    their use of FBA (for one built in game) is questionable.

    do you need to create a mame2000 folder in the game folder? for the zim files to work?

    No, just copy them to the GAME folder.

    You are likely using a wrong romset. You need the right romset for MAME 2000 (0.37b5), and CPS2 will only work well with FBA, which needs the roms recompressed as 7-zip (.7z).
