MAME v0.241 released!

  • 584
  • 0
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.

Its very long list below.

PCSX2 macOS 1.7 Dev 2022-02-10 released!

PCSX2 is a free and open-source PlayStation 2 (PS2) emulator. Its purpose is to emulate the PS2's hardware, using a combination of MIPS CPU Interpreters, Recompilers and a Virtual Machine which manages hardware states and PS2 system memory. This allows you to play PS2 games on your macOS, with many additional features and benefits.

Note: The 32-bit build is for ancient computers and does not include Vulkan or Metal renderers, but does work on Macs as old as macOS 10.9. Use it only if you can't run the 64-bit build. Since this fix only changes the Metal renderer, I've attached the 02-07 build for 32-bit.

This release is a hotfix for 2022-02-07, with the following changes to the Metal renderer:


  • Fix crash on texture download for all GPUs
  • Fix issue...
