You will all know M, an emulator created to unify that enormous diversity of hardware for video games that exists, especially thinking about the classics. For this reason, in 1997, Nicola Salmoria created this project to make it easier for arcade machines to execute all these titles we are talking about. For this he created this modular software in which each hardware component is emulated by means of a specific driver.
The result was MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) or multiple slot machine emulator. The software can emulate different platforms to be able to resurrect those games from the arcades or platforms already extinct, or that abandonware that we need to use again out of nostalgia. For this to be possible, the emulator program only requires the corresponding ROM of the game to be able to run it, as long as the architecture is supported.
Well, MAME keeps updating and has already arrived MAME 0.128. It is a new maintenance version of the many that you have received. Support for certain new arcade games has been added to it, and other improvements and bug fixes have also been thought about. One of the most notable updates of this version is the one that has to do with clones of Agat-7 Apple II and Famicom, in addition to some improvements for the BBC and the speed improvement for some functionalities.
Super Crowns Golf and Shanghai III they are two of the new arcades supported from this new version. This has been achieved with the addition of new ROMs and support for new devices. And that's nothing for the amount of games that already existed for MAME. So if you are a lover of video games, especially arcade machines and classics, don't miss the opportunity to program this fantastic emulator and download MAME for your Linux now from the official website of the project.
