Unfortunately doesn't run correctly in OS X 10.7. Graphics are all choppy.

0.135 works in 10.6.8. Just finished a game of Donkey Kong and reached the pie factory. Fun.

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!

I asked the dev about this on the project's forum on SourceForge. He can't support it anymore, apparently; anyone who wants to take over for him can contact him there, apparently.

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! :)

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

keytarhero had trouble on 25 May 2009
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

Hi keytarhero,

I have just downloaded Mame OS X and am having these exact same troubles you mentioned:


" . . . is an option to consolidate the list to only the ROMs stored in the ROMs folder?" & "Is there a sure way to keep these ROMs "favorited"?"


Did you ever find a way to either delete the ROMs you weren't using/consolidate the ROM list to only the ROMs in stored in the ROMs folder? And/or did you ever find a way to mark multiple favorites?

I've been searching online for days (!!) and can't find any solutions.

Hope to hear from you.

Thanks!

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?
