MAMEWorld Server Update
Hello. Good news is we have finally completed MAMEworld new server migration. The site is as busy as ever and we continually monitor server performance logs. We decided to move our entire hosting platform to the cloud. While we were migrating we also changed our server platform which will significantly boost site and database performance. Needless to say we are glad the migration has been successful and we hope the community will both notice and appreciate the enhanced hosting platform. As always, please let us know if you have any questions, comments or concerns. Game On!

DU: We Finally Got Galaxy Force
Shoutime got the impossibly rare original Galaxy Force (not part II). Almost every PCB was upgraded because some of the changes were bug fixes. We have tried to get it for years. Several of us have bought untested boards in the past that had the Galaxy Force (not part II) sticker on the board thinking it might be part I but they always ended up being part II. It has a pain in the ass harness setup so most sellers could not boot to the title screen to check. Anyway I had given up on finding it because of the problems I have listed. It's amazing that he got this. It was really expensive so if anyone can help then send what you can to Shoutime. Send me a message if you need his paypal address and I'll see if I can get donators credited on the dump.
Thanks so far for pledges/donations from:
