MacMAME Updated to 0.37b16
9:09 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Brad Oliver wrote in with news on a new update to the popular MacMAME emulator project. Version 0.37b16 is now available for download, with some minor bug fixes and a speed bump for those running the Carbon version under OS 8-9. He also recommends a new OpenGL plugin to add special monitor and RGB effects to the emulator.
In general MacMAME news, Oliver also wants people to know that the project is still active and under construction. He's a busy guy, but Mac fans shouldn't worry about the emulator falling too far behind the PC version. Here's the full scoop:
I've said this before, but it bears repeating. MacMAME is not dead. I'm justHead over now and give this latest version a try. Thanks to Brad and the rest of the folks on the team for their hard work on this excellent project, and hopefully those impatient fans will be more forgiving from now on.
very busy and sometimes don't have enough time to do a timely release.
I'd like to thank everyone for their understanding on this, and I hope that
in the future people will stop sending me flaming hate mail and PC (!!)
viruses. You know who you are. ;-)
I am also aware that the PC version is one release past 0.37b16, and I'll be
working on having the Mac version out very shortly. 0.37b16 is the last
version to support 8-bit color, so some of the older games will run slower
in upcoming MAME releases. Enjoy b16 for that reason.
