MAME for MacOS - 64-bit Apple Silicon


The end of 2023 marked the end of the road for me supporting Intel Macs. As previously stated, a mamedev vowed support until the end of the year for building on 10.13 and above. That time has passed and I'm dropping the Intel builds. Please keep in mind MAME still supports running on MacOS 11 and above but I do not have Intel hardware capable of producing builds for that platform. Consider looking into MacPorts or homebrew to continue using MAME on your Intel Macs.

Please make sure you have installed the SDL runtime library first!

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

ARM64 builds will not work on Intel Macs, but Intel builds will work on ARM Macs.
