Compatibility woes / deprecation (Miscellaneous)

posted by Zyzzle(R), 21.02.2009, 02:04

A Few Thoughts, after having spent almost one hour reading the entire thread...

The main point seems to be: If the DOS and/or Win 98 versions are working well, why needlessly eliminate them? Keep the old version up for distro, even if the newer ones are released. I am also extremely upset that the older DOS or Win 98 downloads just "disappear" for no good reasons, the maintaniers seem to go out of their way to erase them, and it's as if these legacy versions never existed at all!

Case in point-- the DOS version of MAME. Where can I even download the last DOS version produced? Can't even find a link anymore. And, if I wanted to, how could I even compile one of the newer versions for DOS? Has anyone a link to a newer DOS binary of MAME or suceeded in compiling one?
