Is MAMEdOX a hack of Mameox?.
Essentially, yes. It is not a new project. It builds on what Bendermike did in his Bendermameox releases. MAMEdOX is based on "Bendermameox 21.01.05" and includes all his updates.

Can you update the core to 0.93?
This is the biggy. It's not impossible, it's just proven really difficult. As mentioned earier, Yoshi has had a go at updating the core as have a couple of others, but the input system in MAME 0.85 onwards saw a huge update, meaning a rewrite of the input code in mameox. I'm confident we'll eventually see a core update, but when we'll see it is another matter.

Why are there 3 people working on MAMEdOX?.
Myself and HK$ coded all the updates. BritneysPAIRS helped with the support files and skinning. It's a joint effort.

Can you add the new SPI/SEGA drivers? (Raiden Fighters 2 - 2000, Turbo Outrun etc.)
Believe me, I'd love to be able to play the new SPI and SEGA games on the xbox. As you all know, there's been some great improvements with these drivers in recent versions of MAME, but adding them to MAMEdOX is out of my scope as a programmer. Both myself and HK$ have admitted we're not expert programmers. As mentioned elsewhere in this thread, I've attempted to add these drivers, but the code updates are too numerous for me to implement. I really hope someone more experienced can look into adding the drivers in future.
