MAME Contributions

Although my direct involvement in MAME has tapered off since 2012 or so, I spent the 15 years from 1997 until then putting an extraordinary amount of effort into the project. During this intense period, it was popular and trendy to share as much as possible about what I was doing with the public.

I kept a blog from 2001–2007 or so, along with a log, and a list of game drivers I contributed. In addition, below is a quick summary of the major CPUs and sound chips I created:

This is just a list of all the drivers I’ve been credited with submitting to MAME. In addition to all of these, I have fixed/improved/cleaned up quite a few more.
