Note for Killer Instinct fans

As of MAME 0.188, different Killer Instinct boot ROMs are no longer treated as different machines. They're now treated as different BIOS versions for a single machine.

MAME 0.188 has been released!

MAME 0.188 MAME 0.188 comes to you with tales of perseverance, blind luck, and the kind of insanity you’d get from no-one else. By sheer chance, a DECO Cassette system Brian Troha picked up cheap happened to come with a set of graphics ROMs for Explorer. While the Explorer program cassette was dump...

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.
