Lol, I caved in, too, but I don't use any MAME database sites these days since they're all a pain in the butt compared to MAWS. Instead, I've turned MAME itself into into a kinda personal offline MAWS with the addition of various extras. Works great, pretty easy to do, and has the added benefit of being in English.

Exactly what did you do? Care to share?

Italian Maws is not my preference but more of a necessity. For some reason my desire to work on MAME, get a new cab, and all sorts of things have kicked in to high gear. lol

I showed a guy at work MAME yesterday and his mouth about hit the floor. He was pining for the old games he grew up with. Poor guy didn't even know MAME existed. Talking to him about it and it reminded me just how much I still want to do with MAME.

Hence the Google translate attack on Italian MAWS.

Sorry for being a mysterious guy, but that topic deserves a proper tutorial. It will just take some time for me to construct one, so hang in there, mate.

Ahh Italian MAWS. If I knew anything about coding I would recreate it for the US.

I wanna find those hackers and introduce my foot to there... Well you can guess.

Been gone almost a year. *sniff*

Lol, I stopped pining for good ol' MAWS the instant I set up my virtual MAWS in MAME. Dunno if you tried it for yourself but it might help ease the pain.
