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

MAME and MESS are now combined as one distribution as of the 0.162 release and offered as a MAME binary (MESS is included in the build).

Follow me on twitter for release updates: @sdlmame_osx

Please make sure you have installed the SDL runtime library first!
Also, MAME/MESS is now using SDL 2.0, please make sure you update the library on your system!

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 2.0.3. The Intel 64-bit build is compiled on OS X 10.9.5 with Xcode 6.2 and SDL 2.0.3. 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.
