MAME 0.208

The latest version of MAME has been compiled for Raspberry Pi and macOS and is available from the download widget on the home page.

This will be the last MAME release that I will be compiling for Raspberry Pi. It now takes fully two days to build on a Pi3+, only gets a few downloads a month and is so slow that it’s unusable for all but the simplest emulation tasks. I cannot justify tying up my system building it any longer.

On the plus side, this means the macOS release will be available much sooner!

MAME 0.203 for macOS & Raspberry Pi *Yay!*

Annd it’s back! MAME for macOS now compiles under Mojave and the SDL2 issues have been fixed with the release of SDL2.0.9, make sure you update!

MAME for Raspberry Pi is also compiling again

A macOS build is now available on my MAME page, it was built using the latest Mojave build and XCode 10.1. There is also a Raspberry Pi version built with Raspbian Stretch, a custom SDL2.0.9 and GCC 6.3.

Ugh!

Just a quick note to let you all know that the MAME downloads are both currently broken. There appear to be some issues with SDL2.0.8 and Apple has changed a bunch of stuff in Mojave that is breaking the build too.

Real life is keeping me from having time to properly investigate/ fix this.

I’ll update as soon as I can.

MAME 0.200 for macOS & Raspberry Pi

Good news this month! The build issues around ARM processors appear to have been fixed, MAME builds on ARM again. Release 0.200 has arrived and is available for both platforms. With any luck there will be an odroid-c2 version this month too.

The emulator programming legends that make up the MAME team have issued fourth a new version of their eponymous emulator and I have built it for the mac and managed to shoehorn it onto a $35 Raspberry Pi computer, set your expectations accordingly.

There is the usual encyclopaedia of improvements and fixes in the whatsnew. Here is the official announcement about the release and this is the official release page where you can get the Windows build (why would you want that‽), or the source code if you fancy a confused look and a major headache! Visit the Github page to see all the code monkey mutterings.

A macOS build is now available on my MAME page, it was built using the latest High Sierra build and XCode 9.4.1. There is also a Raspberry Pi version built with Raspbian Stretch, a custom SDL2 and GCC 6.3.

MAME 0.199 for macOS & ***NOT FOR *** Raspberry Pi

Bad news this month. For the last couple of builds MAME has been struggling to compile on Raspberry Pi. This appears to be a bug in the ARM api and as such will affect all ARM based computers. Last month I bodged a compile but I wasn’t happy about it, this month I can’t get MEM to compile again. There is ongoing discussion about this issue but unless/until this gets resolved there will be no new versions of MAME for arm based machines which is a shame as I was about to start building for odroid-c2 as well. MAME 0.197 (the last clean compile for RasPi will remain up. MAME 0.199 for macOS is now available for download.
