MacMAME .53a Fixes Bugs, Updates OpenGL
12:22 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

After months of no development at all, MacMAME has reached another minor milestone -- version .53a has been released. Brad Oliver has patched some bugs that cropped up in the .53 release, and an updated version of the OpenGL plugin has been included that works with both OS 9 and OS X. Here are the details:

0.53a - 17 August 2001

Re-enabled PPC 68k cores. This fixes miscellaneous funk with a number of
games, e.g. Gauntet. [Brad Oliver]

Fixed some issues with incorrect text in the ROM audits. [Brad Oliver]

MacMAME now exits with a warning message on systems less than 8.6, rather
than crashing. [Brad Oliver]

Also, Kent Miller has updated his OpenGL plugin for MacMAME. It now works
under MacOS X as well as MacOS 9!

Both are available from the MacMAME web site. If you don't know what MacMAME is, that would also be a good place to find out.
