There’s been a lot of touched in this release, with improvements in a number of areas. But before we get to the improvements, we have an embarrassing admission to make: the game ad...

MAME 0.185 Today’s the day for our April MAME release, bringing some important fixes as well as the usual assortment of emulation improvements.

Re: [Q] Externally modular vs internally?

It would also be rather difficult to actually implement MAME as a bunch of dynamically loadable cores in a way that would work on OSX. Keep in mind that the Mach-O loader that OSX uses doesn't allow shared libraries to have undefined symbols. Users of devices call out-of-line non-virtual methods all...

Attacking the Weak (Nihon System Omega)

ShouTime dumped the incredibly rare game Omega (Nihon System) . It’s a ball-and-paddle game running on similar hardware to Sega’s Gigas. These games use an NEC MC-8123 CPU module containing a Z80 core, decryption circuitry, and an 8 KiB encryption key in battery-backed RAM. When fetching a byte from...

Re: MAME Cabinet Question

It's generally accepted that loading a ROM out of a software title you've purchased is "format shifting" in the same way as recording a TV show or ripping a CD to your computer. If you can defeat technical measures designed to prevent it and you aren't distributing copies to others without a license...

Re: MAME Cabinet Question

There's nothing in the MAME license that prevents you from selling a cabinet with MAME pre-installed. However if you want to distribute any ROMs, game artwork (including screenshots, cabinet art, flyers, etc.) you need a license from the current copyright holder(s) of that media. What you cannot do ...

MAME Release Schedule

You may have been following MAME for a while but you may not know about our release schedule and processes. This is largely our fault – we haven’t been particularly transparent about our release process. In fact, we didn’t even really have a formal release process for a lot of the project’s lifetime...
