MAME 0.131 – Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator

with 2 comments

mame-emulator-game

MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. When used in conjunction with images of the original arcade game’s ROM and disk data, MAME attempts to reproduce that game as faithfully as possible on a more modern general-purpose computer. MAME can currently emulate several thousand different classic arcade video games from the late 1970s through the modern era.

As of version 0.131 the MAME emulator supports 4162 unique games and 8030 actual ROM image sets and is growing all the time. However, not all of the games in MAME are currently playable; 1116 ROM sets are marked as not working in the current version, and 44 are not actual games but BIOS ROM sets.

MAME is free. Its source code is also free. MAME is strictly a non-profit project, but ROM, CD, and hard disk images are all copyrighted material. They cannot be distributed without the explicit permission of the copyright owner. They are not “abandonware”, nor have any of the games supported by MAME passed out of copyright. The main purpose of MAME is to be a reference to the inner workings of the emulated arcade machines. This is done both for educational purposes and for preservation purposes, in order to prevent many historical games from disappearing forever once the hardware they run on stops working. Of course, in order to preserve the games and demonstrate that the emulated behavior matches the original, you must also be able to actually play the games. This is considered a nice side effect, and is not MAME’s primary focus.
