http://www.zophar.net/utilities/arcadeaud.html  - Download sortinfo from this page to get started.  It will group all of the games by player.

I used mamewah to make a list of 4 player games and another of 3 players games, but unfortunately I had to add them one by one.  It's all done now though and I have had some good times w/ the 4 player games.

A little short-sighted-ness from me I'm afraid.  I should have included filters for no. players and a few other things that can be obtained from mame -listinfo.

I will probably alter the list format at some point to add a few things, although the controls.dat project may eventually create the need for a change also...
