Of course it is, I've voted with the other category.

Not that I want to launch an OS flamewar, but either you call the pool "OS Poll" and I whish it to be a little more exhaustive, either you call it "Win flavour pool"  :D

Then it would have had to include BeOS, DigitaOS, Windows CE, etc.. that mame has run on :)

WinME here.  I'm still in the win9x family for the multiple tracballs & multiple lightguns in mame:analog+.  ;D  When I built this computer, winME was cheaper than win98, so I got ME instead of 98.

Not planning to buy winXP until I get a new computer (hopefully within a year).  Until then, I can't run the winXP-only method of getting multiple mice.  I'd need the headers and libraries to compile it, anyways.  For now it's just RTFM, err.. RTFWP.  After I get XP, then I'll test and see if the winXP rawmouse multiple mice is as good (programmer friendly) as win9x directInput multiple mice, and decide if I also upgrade this old computer or not.

I'm sorry.  Do you need life support?  You are connected to the internet with ME?  Are you crazy?

sorry, but i hate being releagated to other, we have 4 windowns choices and then other? it should be "what wintel OS are you using?"

i use mac, for the record, not other. i think that is hte mame team can put out the effort to make ports of mame for all these different systems, you can take the time to represent them in your poll.

just rattling your cage. us mac users are instigators you know 8)

The big thing for me.

I run on a 80gig drive....

And my OS runs on another 40gig drive

the OS changes... but my other drive doesnt.

btw, Daphne works MUCH better on XP (noticably better on the same hardware)...

Analog+ mame works only with 98.

I like that you don't have any of those communist, French loving OSs like Linux or MacOS....  ;D Seriously, I was going to make my cab from an empty Pengo cabinet I have that still has the side art intact and run it on Linux.

Well,

Daytona
Virtua Fighter
MS Pinball arcade
Pro-Pinball series
New Frogger
New Centipede
New Combat
Other remakes
Crazi Taxi
Golden Tee golf
NFL Blitz
Many many many other pc ports of arcade games.

And don't say you will just use wine!  Most of those use directx.

My thoughts exactly!!!  I've got a force feedback wheel and pedals.  Not that Spy Hunter ain't fun, but I'd be shooting myself in the foot to exclude myself from Need For Speed and Colin McRae.

just my opinion I guess.
my cab is for arcade games, I've got a nice pc to play pc games on (which runs winxp pro)
and as they were designed to run on a pc, the control layouts are optimized for that platform.

I see playing pc games on a cab as being just as much of a wet blanket as using mame on a PC.

It works, It's neat, It's not the same.

oh and dont the latest releases of wine support direct x calls?
I'm not running it myself but I seem to recall they had warcraft III running under wine quite well.
