Going for a drive… with a printer?

Guru dumped Namco’s System 12 Techno Drive recently. I got it to boot in MAME and go into the service menu, but it won’t play because it’s missing an odd arcade peripheral: a printer. (The board set that we dumped from is also missing the printer).
Either photos of a fully intact boardset or the service manual would likely be helpful in figuring out what’s going on. Please buzz me on Mameworld or forums.bannister.org if you’ve got either of those.

Fresh Apples in 0.163

– Several crash bugs were fixed in the Mac image card that lets you transfer files between the emulated Mac and your host PC/Mac/whatever. Read up on the usage for that right here.

New for the Mac drivers in 0.162

The “image” synthetic NuBus card for NuBus Macs got some major enhancements in MAME 0.162. In particular, along with some special software, you can now use them to transfer files in an FTP-like fashion (except much faster) between the system you’re running MAME on and the emulated Mac’s hard disks.
First up, get the “Mac Tools” zipped CHD right here and unzip it to get mactools.chd. It includes Stuffit Expander, Compacter Pro, DiskCopy, and other handy Mac tools.

About that documentary for the Polybius kickstarter…

I think it’s safe to say that MAMEdev’s position on it is that it’s pointless bullshit and nobody should back the project. Stiletto has done more research on Polybius than anyone else and conclusively proven it’s a hoax, so even announcing such a thing without his involvement is even dumber than the Poltergeist reboot.

Fore-score and seven years ago

Ted Green, now an official MAMEdev, did some more work on the IT Eagle driver. He’s kinda good…

In which I have to slightly correct Jason Scott, and call for help

Many of you probably saw this Tweet recently:
There are a lot of people on the MESS (not JSMESS) development group who are doing this work, and they're sweating over it, and I thank them
