MAME/MESS for Mac OS X - 32/64-bit Intel

Please note "Stable" releases will be offered in Intel 32bit and x64 binaries. "U" releases will be x64 only.

Follow me on twitter for release updates: @sdlmame_osx

Please make sure you have installed the SDL runtime library first!
Also, MAME/MESS is not yet ready for SDL 2.0, do not upgrade from 1.2.15!

Please also note MAME is a console application, use Terminal.app or a frontend!

The Universal Binaries are no longer built or supported. Goodbye PPC, my old friend. The Intel 32-bit build is compiled on OS X 10.6.8 with Xcode 3.2.6 and SDL 1.2.15. The Intel 64-bit build is compiled on OS X 10.9 with Xcode 5.0.1 and SDL 1.2.15. If these do not work for you, compile your own. NOTE: The 32-bit builds are supported on OS X 10.6 or above, 64-bit only supports 10.9 and above.

If you have any questions/comments about these builds, feel free to mail me at j@NOSPAM@lngn.net. I will not reply to ROM requests or other such nonsense. Also, I am not, nor have I ever been, a member of mamedev. I just do this as a service to the community. If you have questions about the internals of the program, I'm not really the person to ask.
