Heck, Pump It Up got a decent reaction on my Twitter account but apparently not enough to actually make the redump to happen. I'm not exactly sure what the users really want at this point (and no, the troll reactions about wanting HNG64 sound doesn't count, at all).

if yuo're not exactly sure what they really want, simple, just ask them
and yes, wanting to see HNG64 sound be fixed does count, "troll reactions" or not

You're missing the point, and besides: HNG64 needs Akai MPC3000 synth being fixed, for very obvious reasons.
Now, how many MPC floppy dumps there are in the wild?
By quick glance ZERO -> users don't care enough.

HNG64 *could* be fixed without MPC3000, it's just that having the MPC working means a lot less guesswork.

FYI all those 6801 family MCU dumps recently (including Gakken TV Boy), it's because Sean figured out a new way to dump those chips a few months ago. I don't think any HD6301Y0 were dumped before that, unless it was done via a trojan. Berger verified it and also dumped a few HD6301 V1/X0/Y0 MCUs.

If any of the ROM dumpers here have undumped HD6301 MCUs, ask Sean how to dump them. He wrote a how-to doc, but I don't know if it's public yet, so just email him.

Trurip dumps are bad? Sorry to post this in, just curious.

First Dance Floor dump has a different SHA1 than the one currently in MAME (marked as BAD_DUMP).
It's easy to check if the dump is good, it should allow you to play the game without like 1 full minute of waiting for arrows to happen (it literally checks for the subchannel integrity under the hood).

It would be kinda easy to hack things so that it can be promoted otherwise, it makes a very limited use of Pentium 2/Voodoo Banshee features.

I wish I had access to test that. Trurips were so rare they were only available on invitation only private trackers during the PD days. No idea what it has become of them now.

I need a new hard drive, y'all are killing me here.

But this release is great, I'm glad almost everything submitted over the past two months made it into it.
