    For DK, not having sound can mask some tell-tale signs of MAME usage. Earlier versions of MAME did not emulate the DK sounds very well, relying on WAV samples instead. It wasn't until version 0.116 or thereabouts that full emulation of all sounds was implemented, and there is a very clear difference. Sound quality aside, older versions of MAME don't (or can't) emulate the true sound of a DK machine being switched on. On a real machine, this initial and distinctive "squawk" sound is the result of all the game sounds being played simultaneously. In older MAME, this sound was replaced with Donkey Kong's "growl" sound on boot up. On a related note, when MAME boots up DK, the rug pattern is all 0s, in different colors, every time. When a real machine boots up or is reset, the rug pattern is still multi-colored, but filled with random graphical garbage. None of the available footage of Billy's games show any sort of boot up or reset.

    If so, I haven't a clue how that works as I neither own a SmartPhone nor use any text-messaging app.

    So no need to tag a post like that. Send me a PM to draw my attention to something...I'm very "old school" when it comes to messaging.
    It's not intended for any outside social media. I believe it only functions within TG and it creates a notification in the upper right (the Earth icon) that a person has been mentioned in a thread.

    Apologies to Xenia...my memory ain't what it used to be.

    WEDNESDAY, the day before the ACAM event started, is where we started to watch that first DK tape in my cabin

    THURSDAY, the first day of the event, Kuh brought the tape to show it in the Cram cabin

    FRIDAY, the second day of the event, we watched the second third in my cabin.

    SATURDAY, that's the day Kuh tried to place the TV set on top of the DK machine at ACAM and also when STeve set the 985K live while Bill's tape was playing 15 feet away on a TV set at the back of ACAM

    Sorry, got the dates wrong !! It's been awhile :)

    Robert
