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.
1. Download install.exe and complete installation. It will take some time to pull up-to-date code
2. Start buildtools.bat (plain cmd) or cmder.exe (fancy console) from installed folder (by default it is C:\buildtools)
3. From time to time run update in order to update tools
4. Download MAME source
git clone https://github.com/mamedev/mame.git
Console emulator is based on Cmder, with some small changes in scripts.
For those needed offline download
Download from here : buildtools.7z (updated to Mingw 5.2.0)
For those already having GIT installed
git clone https://github.com/mamedev/buildtools
This works same as when installed with installer.
NOTE: This compile tools (as previous one) will not work on old PC's without SSE3 instructions
