MAME (an acronym of Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) is an emulator application designed to recreate the hardware of arcade game systems in software on modern personal computers and other platforms. The intention is to preserve gaming history by preventing vintage games from being lost or forgotten. The aim of MAME is to be a reference to the inner workings of the emulated arcade machines; the ability to actually play the games is considered "a nice side effect".

No i can't. I don't have 68k hardware, and, the MAME team insists no game files be included with this app. Web has everything, freeroms.com/mame.htm has everything (but they forgot to include donkey kong and their interface ain't great). There are 1000s of game files and I've saved 188 games so far (getting donkey kong elsewhere) totalling 600MB compressed thus far; it was a lot of work and so a collection for download would be very convenient for you ... maybe on another page not linked, maybe one day ...

I can play the later stuff on my g4-Mini 10.3.9. but I would love to play some games on my LC475. Are you able to make a collection of of view games that will work on my LC475 68040 25 Mhz? That would be nice!

I've collected hundreds of arcade titles for MAME. Each file describes the hardware being emulated. For example, your 68k era Mac should do Pac-Man (1x 3.0 MHz Z80 CPU) no trouble, but a 68k cannot do "The Irritating Maze" (12 MHz 68000 + 4.0 MHz Z80 + 8 MHz sound chip) nor any "Neo-Geo" game. This 68k version of MAME probably won't even begin to load a Neo-Geo program.

So, scanning through my collection, I see the majority of "coin-op" arcade games flourished in the 1980s and mid 1990s when the game machines were simple or 68k themselves, and Mac hardware was itself 68k ... the majority of MAME games merit having you try them out, and most games will be playable. But certainly not the Neo-Geo collection of over 100 titles, and not ones with Amiga-like hw requirements.

Cool find, but what games will run on this on a 68K LC475/Q700 ?
