Well, look at my first trial to distribute one of my sources (the chessmst driver):
First Robbbert changed a lot in my code ("to conform with our standards"), and now not even this changed code is wanted because it's not implemented in LUA?

So what do you expect from me?
Correct, this was the first and last time!

It is not an issue of whether you want to or not, it is a legal requirement. We went over this before when you didn't want to release source code.

Yeah, this isn't an arbitrary thing, it's a "people don't want to be sued by the author of mboard.cpp" thing.

Actually, as I understand it, as long as you don't distribute any binaries (i.e. you're developing for yourself and yourself alone) then you're not required to distribute the source. But I agree that's splitting hairs a bit ;-)

@ Sandro Ronco:
I saw that you've now also added the Chess-Master Diamond (great!), but since the 2 extra modules (PM10/PM11) are not fully implemented yet, maybe you need some additional infos about these cartridges?

In the manual for this device there are also circuit diagrams for these 2 modules (at the last pages), this manual is available on Alain Zanchetta's website:

The extra modules are in the hash/chessmstdm.xml and should work, but you must specify the module to be loaded into the command line
e.g. `./mame64 chessmstdm -cart pm10`

One thing that doesn't work is hot swapping the modules because the cartridges interface automatically causes a reset when you changes the cart.

Thanks, but unfortunately this doesn't seem to work with mess or messui.
