A new (hopefully final) update to MAME 0.132 has been posted. Please post any open issues over at MAMETesters to make sure we are aware of them. Unless something big is discovered, look for MAME 0.133 sometime this weekend.
MAME is a multi-purpose emulation framework.
MAME's purpose is to preserve decades of software history. As electronic technology continues to rush forward, MAME prevents this important "vintage" software from being lost and forgotten. This is achieved by documenting the hardware and how it functions. The source code to MAME serves as this documentation. The fact that the software is usable serves primarily to validate the accuracy of the documentation (how else can you prove that you have recreated the hardware faithfully?). Over time, MAME (originally stood for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) absorbed the sister-project MESS (Multi Emulator Super System), so MAME now documents a wide variety of (mostly vintage) computers, video game consoles and calculators, in addition to the arcade video games that were its initial focus.
MAME has just been updated. Grab the 0.132u2 diffs from the Source Updates page.
The first update to MAME 0.132 is now available. This update includes the long-sought game Steel Worker from Taito. Thanks to everyone who pooled their resources together to track down and purchase one of these rare PCBs!
