  1. Hi, I’ve downloaded and unzipped mame0257-x86, whats the next steps to run the mame? thank you very much

    1. Hi, you should run these commands in Terminal:

      cd Downloads

      cd mame0257-x86

      and finally: ./mame

      Good luck! 🙂

      1. ./mame

  2. On High Sierra I just got “Segmentation fault: 11” at almost every launch via Terminal. What is the solution?

    1. As stated on the main page to the site, you need MacOS 10.14 or above. 10.13 – High Sierra is not supported. Please upgrade your system to use MAME.

        1. I’ll be honest, I have no idea. I’d try things at least 2 years old. 0.240 or thereabouts would be my best guess. Read through the comments in these pages, someone likely noted it somewhere previously.

          1. I “upgraded” my classic MacPro (5,1) from High Sierra (10.13) to Mojave (10.14) earlier this year — and the last pre-built Intel versions I remember as still working under High Sierra was somewhere around 0.248. (I can’t remember if it was 0.249 or 0.250 where it stopped working.)

            As a side-note, the upgrade to macOS 10.14 was totally worth it (after some minor tweaking) — that is if you *don’t* have an Nvidia GPU, of course! Also with the latest code fixes by Arbee/Jay to get it compiling for 10.14, the most recent versions have been working perfectly! (Thanks again!!!)

  3. Thanks for the update build.

    I usually get mine from the Homebrew packages – but the latest ones don’t seem to support my USB ‘Fighting Stick’ style controller. But fortunately your’s does.



    1. Hrm that’s odd. I’m assuming the homebrew port uses a standard Linux library package for SDL while I use the MacOS specific bundle for these builds, they should both provide the same support in the end. May be an issue with homebrew and/or SDL itself.

      Either way, glad my builds work for you, maybe worth reporting to homebrew about the usb issue, someone might be able to fix it.
