Welcome to MacMAME.org!

 MacMAME is part of the MAME project, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the history of arcade videogames via emulation. MacMAME achieves this by running the original program code found in the arcade games. As such, it is much more than a reproduction, it is essentially that same game running via an emulated layer inside your Macintosh.

 On this site you'll find the most current build of MacMAME, information about upcoming versions and instructions for using it. Please look around and enjoy reliving some of the games that made going to video arcades an enjoyable part of our pop culture. You can move to various parts of the site by clicking on the headings to the left.

 I'd like to thank Jeffrey Carl for allowing us to host the site on his server at servintfree.net.

 MacMAME 0.35 beta 12a is out! Find it on the "Downloads" page. Also, I (Brad) appreciate all the kind words about my new position at Westlake. The new job will not preclude me from working on MacMAME, but it's possible that down the road I may run so tight on time that we might skip a beta or two in favor of those programming jobs that actually bring in money ;-) We'll cross that bridge when it arrives though.

 May 5, 1999:

 MacMAME 0.35 beta 12 is out! Also, John has revved MAME Converter to convert samples from the old .sam format to .wav format. They are both available on the "Downloads" page.

macmame.org will be shutting down around April 1st (that's no joke). We have been hosted by boffomac.com, but they will be pulling the plug permanently by that date so we'll be looking for a new home. If you can help us out, please drop me a line.

If we do not have a new home by then, our interim home will be John Butler's mirror page at talkcity, the link to which is in the left frame.

At this time, I'd like to thank Steve Sabol for keeping boffomac going as long as he has. Good luck to you in the future, Steve!.

As you no doubt know (since you are reading this page) MacMAME.org is back up. There are still a few configuration issues, but for the most part everything should be operational. It will probably be going down again (for a much shorter time) in the future to resolve the remaining glitches, but no date has been set yet.

 Also, John Butler has mirrored the MacMAME.org pages here. In the event of future outages at MacMAME.org, you can be sure that any releases will be posted there in the interim.

October 4, 1998:

 MacMAME 0.34 beta 4, release 2 is up. Sorry for all the confusion. This version should be stable (fingers crossed!).

 October 3, 1998:

 If you've already downloaded 0.34 beta 4, there will be a bug-fix version ASAP to address some pretty wild issues. The current binary has been taken off-line in the meantime.

 October 3, 1998:

 MacMAME 0.34b4 is out - you can find it on the "Downloads" page. New/changed ROM sets can probably be found at one of the ROM sites listed to the left under the "ROMs" link. Enjoy!
