I have coinops on the Xbox, so no idea how, or what it runs off, and no real interest, I'm not a purist (at all) with arcade emulation but it plays games of a retro nature. I'm sure there'd have been games that aren't on it but plenty are, but not to worry.

I'd have liked play once for practice, then next scores counts, but i don't mind really.
Ah, just reading properly here, you're using CoinOps on an Xbox. That's fair enough, it doesn't have to be the latest/greatest version of MAME. Can you find out what version of MAME is in that build of CoinOps, & we can all just grab that one & use it?

Anyone on PC can grab any version of MAME here - https://www.mamedev.org/oldrel.html

It's absolutely nothing at all to do with purism (I think the term emulation purist is a bit of an oxymoron anyway), it's more to do with ensuring a level playing field. Older version of MAME may differ in how they emulate certain games compared to newer versions. This may make the game harder/easier for different people, so in a high score competition it's a bit of an arseways to do it. Best practice would be everyone playing the same version of the emulator.

In hindsight, agreed, to get it up and running it should be as easy as possible to engage in.

I last played this in September on the PlayStation but I downloaded MAME just for this. I forgot how intense this game was once you get into it and you're chasing scores. 357170

I think 1942 is actually on that vertical 60 in 1 multi board which I have in one of my cabs. Will take a look this evening and see if I can get a score up.
