Progetto-SNAPS 0.181 Update
Ready the first 2017 update for MAME 0.181 of "MAME progetto-SNAPS".
It's 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 only the snap generated by MAME (and HBMAME) were updated, and also Artworks 16: 9.
I started to replace the very older snap (ingame); in the coming months will be replaced all those of 2005. In this regard, I have added to its dat package, an ini file (Year_Snap.ini) that orders for the year of production.
Thanks to the precious work of Flymer76, the collections regarding the HBMAME are almost complete; I hope to finish them with the next update.
1,091 snaps and 25 artworks zip, downloadable here:

Atari Table Pong Project
"Table Pong Project"
We've been working in a cool project for the last 3 years.
It's a physical version of the Atari Pong Game.
A few months ago we shared a work in progress of the project on YouTube and it got a lot of media awareness. The project evolved and today we have the license of the Atari brand and we are finishing our Kickstarter campaign due to be released in a few weeks.
We just wanted to share the project with the community and ask for support promoting the project because I bet many retro lovers and gamers like us will love it:)
We have a Facebook fan page and trying to make it grow before the kickstarter campaign so we can have a broader diffusion on D-day!
