Good stuff. Seems like the old adage is true, to focus on things that are within your reach. It's nice to see someone giving some love to these TV plug-and-play games.

ETA: last pic is a false positive, it actually don't kernel panic (was me messing with debugger too much) but seemingly stalls after sis900.c check:

Bonus 1: Not sure why EISA boards gets detected as "@@@0000", I'm gonna assume it needs to be floating high from the legacy ports if no board is there?

Thanks to Darksoft for tracing out the CPS-2 TOURNAMENT PCB, you’ll soon be able to run the kind of flawed Super Street Fighter II Tournament Battle setup:

It wasn’t a great implementation – it required everyone to change seats between rounds, the winner needed to return to their original seat to enter their name for the high scores, but they needed to move to their final position to claim their free games. Communication is simulated at a high level to avoid even trying to make MAME synchronise with the wall clock more frequently or anything like that.

Added a couple of useful modern'ish devices for the MTX machines.

Firstly, the MAGROM, a 512K cartridge system containing many games for quick loading. Various ROM images for the device have been softlisted.
