It is based on a recent version of MAME. I am one of the programmers (and copyright holders) of the MAME Videopac/Odyssey2 driver. Does the website say anywhere that it's powered by MAME? Does it link to a list of copyright holders and the open source license used? I was unable to find it.

MAME as a whole is GPL2, but a lot of the source code, including all the emulated chips and driver used by Odyssey2, are BSD3. BSD3 is very permissive. For example, it does not require you to release any source code. Nor do we have any say with the included roms (that is an issue between the site and Philips). But it'd still be required to include the license text and copyright holders in the documentation (in this case, somewhere linked on the site).

That being said, the website presentation looks really nice.

Hi! Sure I can.

I'm not going to be nasty and ask you to list every individual copyright holder.
Simply a small text on your Vault page saying something like:

Powered by MAME (License)

"MAME" could be a hyperlink to https://www.mamedev.org/
"License" could be a hyperlink to a simple txt file on your own site saying for example:

Thanks!

small feedback:
- "Powered by" can be in Brazilian, you can word it any way you like.
- it says "MAME MAME" in the license text

In time, thank you very much for taking the time to do this and congratulations.
I have both used mulattoes for my work, it helps a lot.
