The intention here is not really to focus on particular drivers, but more general concepts. I'm less interested that Gauntlet was emulated and more interested that the slapstic was emulated. For example.
Let's use this format:
- 08 Aug 1999: Konami CPU first emulated (0.36b2)
- 25 Apr 1998: Atari slapstic first emulated (0.31)
- 05 Feb 1997: MAME 0.1 released (0.1)
