OFFICIAL DONATIONS PAGE AND
THANKYOU'S FROM GURU!

Welcome, and thanks for making the decision to support me.

If you want to skip the introductions and just donate, click here.

Before you start, please take some time to read my FAQ. It's important that you are fully at ease with your decision to donate. All of your questions will be answered in the FAQ and if you should have any other queries, don't hesistate to contact me.

I joined Mame in the 0.35 cycle. As you can see from this official chart the number of games in MAME has gone from around 1500 to more than 7000. Of course not all of it was me, it was a team effort from a lot of dedicated people. But if you look around my site you will see there's a substantial part of it that came from here :-)

In order to continue my work, donations are a very important part of Guru-Dumping. There are a lot of undumped games out there that need to be preserved but to do that we need a constant flow of funds from donations. You can help us to make MAME even better than it is now by simply clicking the button below to donate via PAYPAL. We're also always in need of postage funds to get these items out to me.
Please note, if you would like your nick or some other name added to the list below (or you want to remain anonymous), just click the + to 'add a note' when on the Paypal payment page and let me know.

Please remember, while there may be other people out there asking for funds, there's only 1 person with 15+ years experience and ALL of the required **professional** equipment to do the job right, first time! I personally spent over $20000 on equipment so that the job will be successful. Don't make the mistake of donating to amateurs who use crap like hacky Willem programmers and other backyard junk. Donate to a professional dumper with a proven track record of 3000+ dumps and 10 years of dealing with complicated electronics. Also note I have the contacts and support to be able to obtain rare and wanted items so the money is used for it's intended purpose. I have also received probably over $20000 in donations over the time I have been dumping PCBs and all of that has gone straight back into MAME. The donations are still coming after 10+ years and so are the dumps. Who else can say that? The answer is of course, no one except the Guru :-)


Click the Paypal donate button below to proceed with the donation.....
NOTE!! This account is STRICTLY for donations less than $500.
If you wish to send large donations (>$500), please contact me directly.



If you have just donated, or donated in the past, I'd like to say THANKS!!

The following people have either sent donations via Paypal, or loaned PCBs or helped out in some other hardware and/or financial related way. If you are listed here by your name and prefer your nick (or whatever), just let me know and I'll change it. I know there are 100's of names missing from this list.... unfortunately I didn't start keeping a list until I created the Paypal Donations account because Randy Hoffman was handling the donations fund up to that point (the majority of names listed are from Paypal donations), although I have now added everyone who is listed on my news pages too :-)
If you donated something and I missed listing your name, just let me know and I'll fix it. Or better still, make another donation and then I'll add your name :-D
The order listed is "last donation listed at the top".
Thanks to Everyone! :-)
