Welcome to MAME...

You've reached the official site of the MAME development team.

MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. When used in conjunction with images of the original arcade game's ROM and disk data, MAME attempts to reproduce that game as faithfully as possible on a more modern general-purpose computer. MAME can currently emulate several thousand different classic arcade video games from the late 1970s through the modern era.

Regime Change

05 Apr 2011

After 6 years of coordinating the MAME project, it is time for me to step aside and let someone else handle day-to-day management. It has been an honor to helm the project for so long, and even though I won’t be handling the regular releases and top-level coordination anymore, I do hope to continue working on modernizing the core, so we are not left with a half-finished effort.

With this changing of the guard, I am pleased to announce that Angelo Salese (aka Kale) has volunteered to step in and take over coordination of the project going forward. Angelo has done a great job improving many drivers over the years, and I am confident he will be an excellent project leader going forward.
