I would love to see an update to this to take advantage of the new version of MAME. There is another OS X front end that is amazing, however, it leaves all of us that can't upgrade to 10.5+ in the dirt. My mac run 10.4.11 and won't ever run anything more.. And I can't afford a new MAC... Wish I could.. From some of the boards I have been on, there are MANY Mac users in the same boat. We can't go above 10.4.11 and use PPC's.....NOT Intel...so we are basically screwed out of anything new or updated. What developers apparently don't get, is that there are millions of us in this boat. Way more than those using Leopard/Snow Leopard and/or Intel... Oh well... PLEASE, if Dave reads this... I think you have many people that would love to see an update to this.. Seems that Mac community is pretty much left in the dirt when it comes to front ends and ports of MAME. :( Thanks! - Greg

Just wanted to mention how pleased I am that the core has been brought "up to date" and thanks again for this wonderful game playing tool. I converted the ROM from my old "Elevator Action" game and now can play it anytime. You have saved me a fortune in quarters! :)

Hello, First, I'd like to thank you for keeping this going. This is great! One questions I have is whether or not their is an option to consolidate the list to only the ROMs stored in the ROMs folder? To remedy this in the meantime, I've tried simply "favoriting" the ROMs I do have, but they won't all stay in the favorite list. Is there a sure way to keep these ROMs "favorited" at startup? Another question/suggestion I have is I've noticed that some games audio is much much lower than others. Is there an option I'm overlooking (similar to iTunes soundcheck) that will make all games the same level. If not, I think this would be a great thing to implement. I don't know if it's something easy to do, but I don't remember differences in audio levels in the past using macmame. I've also noticed that those same select games that play at lower volumes are the same that occasionally unexpectedly quit at the startup. But the times they do startup fine, they run perfectly with no further unexpected quits during gameplay (just the volume issue). Is there something on my end that may be causing this, or is this a typical prob? Again, thanks for keeping this going. Great work

Essential for old school Mac gamers! Although initial setup could be a bit clearer (requires a full audit then individual audits for games you add to the data folder). Plenty of games can be found at planetemu.net

It is good to see that the UI is more Mac-like. Now we can use the audit as a list of what games to play, much like MacMAME. And, finally, it doesn't quit when you want to switch to another game, and takes you back to the list of available games (again, just like MacMAME).

I have been very impressed with the progress on MAME OS X. Dave has done a great job at keeping the newest Mame source up to date. If your roms are not working, then more than likely they simply are just not up to date. The MAME core has changed quite a bit in the last year since MacMAME was lat updated so it is unlikely that it will ever be updated. Dave is pretty actively updating this app and is found on the mame forums quite a bit. http://www.bannister.org/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=10&page=1

VERY excited about this, early trials look very promising, thanks so much!! However, one quibble: I would really, REALLY like to be able to search for games from a list using the actual name of the game. At present, the "list" checkbox is blank and I must type in the actual ROM name (which is often, but not always, similar to the game name but just a bit different). Surely it would not be hard to have the program "grab" the list of ROMs by their real titles on startup? Thanks again!

I can't seem to be able to use my XBOX controller with this, even though I've installed 'Gamepad Companion' and 'XBOX HID Driver'. What am I doing wrong?
