DU: Rushing Heroes
I redumped the sound rom in Rushing Heroes so it should be fixed/improved in the next MAME and no longer marked as bad dump. Also sorted out some of the rom labels.
DU Tiny Fundraiser: Weirdo Sega And Konami Boards
Sorry that the last fundraiser dump is not released yet but Shoutime's programmer that can do the bproms is broken and he hasn't sorted his equipment out. I need help with some inexpensive weirdo boards that go to, I'm guessing, odd stuff like mechanical games. It could be for some of them that all we can do is emulate the sound, but we're talking Konami and Sega so at least to me and some others, still interesting. If I get donations I'll personally hound Belmont for a new M1 including them until he caves in or loses his sanity so how can you lose? I've already bought one of them and Charles has bought one and trap15 got an NMK one. The seller isn't responding to requests for combined shipping (he might not even understand what I'm asking) and I'd rather just gobble them all up quickly before anyone else gets them so if this sounds interesting click below.

Progetto-SNAPS 0.183 Update
Ready the MAME 0.183 update of "MAME progetto-SNAPS".
Also this month, as the previous ones, is available this folder on Mega.co.nz that allows individually download files to update from version to version. The folder will be temporarily available until the next update.
This month there is a great update of Marquees collection, with hundreds of arcade games pictures, with a higher resolution (at least 1200px). I also started to update the backglass images of pinball, even these in high resolution. This work will continue in the coming months.
Also about the Icons has done a great job; 1,485 icons pertaining to the Devices have been replaced with other generated from real images. All arcade games have its own icon; still lacking to do 88 "ex-MESS" machines.
I get update also Artwork, with new packages in the sub-categories "Alternate" and "WideScreen".
Because now the snap collections for HBMAME are complete, I removed the images of BIOS.
Even with regard to resources for software lists have been added many new resources (1,506); some lists are new (aim65_cart and coco_cart), other update (cpc_cass, cpc_flop, megadriv, n64, neogeo, saturn, segacd and sms) and others have been added the missing categories (atom_rom_manuals, aim65_cart_manuals, megadriv_covers, megadriv_manuals, megadriv_video, saturn_covers, saturn_manuals, segacd_covers, segacd_manuals and sms_titles).
The next update is scheduled for Sunday, April 16, 2017.

If you've replied about these to me in PM or email please skip the poll below because you're already accounted for.
I'm going to do a small batch of MW T-shirts soon that will look sort of like this:
I'm going to work it out where some of the money goes toward buying pcbs and I'll credit the shirt buyers when the games get added to MAME. Click in the poll below if you're interested so I'll have a good idea for what batch size to order. No ETA on when they will be done, it's just in planning mode right now.
Yes I would like to buy:
