Visitors here will no doubt know that there have been issues with building x86 versions of MAME for me for the past two months now. It seems this release the why is more readily known, from http://mamedev.org:
It’s no doubt these changes that have effected my older MacOS 10.14 development system. I currently have no idea what 10.15 ships with Xcode, but I have my doubts. But it’s that time of year when mamedev changes up things, so no doubt it would have come sooner or later. I’ll likely have to look into different “hackintosh” solutions out there, because none of my Intel machines can go beyond 10.15 with a stock setup.
I’ll have to ‘do my homework’ as they say. hopefully I can come up with a solution that works, as supporting older releases has been something I’ve always tried to keep around, but this may be the end of the road for many older Macs.
That said, I’ll do what I can for a solution in the meantime, arm64 builds are alive and well since they are current development based machines, the ecosystem is maintained. I’d still like to offer an Intel solution, but it may take some time to sort out the plan.
