1. I am...
... John Baker, from Toledo, Ohio (USA). Born September 18, 1976;
married to the beautiful Kimberly and father of Elizabeth and Addison, twin girls born December 30, 2001.
I currently work in the quality control department of
aircraft repair facility here in Ohio.
2. I got into MAME...
... some time in mid-1999.
I got talking about videogames to a friend of mine at work, although it was console systems we were talking about. He couldn't believe I still had the NES and SNES and liked them more than the Playstation! He told me about a guy he knew who had an "Emulator" on his PC that
could play all the NES games. So we searched the Internet for this
mysterious "Emulator" and found www.zophar.net - and from
there discovered MAME.
We had a lot of fun hunting down ROMs
on little Geocities home pages and the like but I never
really got into it until I saw the first webpage where a guy
built a cabinet to play MAME games on!
3. I love playing...
Joust, Mr.Do, Pac-Man and the misses, Gala(ga,axian),
Donkey Kong Jr., and many more!
I just wish I had the
controls to play TRON...someday...umm..someday...
4. I would like to say to Nicola and the MAME team...
... ever since the TV show "Silver Spoons", where they had
all the classic cabs in the living room, I have wanted my own
arcade. Thank you for making it possible... but get rid of the
