Project: M.A.M.E. for OS/2

M.A.M.E. stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. Running this program, in conjunction with a game's related data files (ROMs) will more or less faithfully reproduce that game on your PC. In other words, with M.A.M.E. you can actually play over 1300 classic arcade video games on your PC. These are NOT recreations; these are the actual arcade games that appeared in arcades in the 70's and 80's. The game's code is dumped into ROM files that M.A.M.E. loads and replays on your computer.
The purpose of M.A.M.E. is to actually pretend to be the CPU and support chips that these games need to play. M.A.M.E. is the "hardware" of the arcade game, the ROMs are the "software". It was designed to digitally preserve games and gameplay that would otherwise be forgotten in the modern day rat race of console games and computers.

Today, there are well over 100 people contributing to the M.A.M.E. project.
One of them is Martin "The Masked Mallard" Amodeo which wrote the great OS/2 port of MAME.

The offical homepage of M.A.M.E. for OS/2 moved to another page at

You will notice that we do not ship any ROM's with the OS/2 Version of M.A.M.E. This is because of copyright problems, but you should be able to find the ROM's somewhere in the Net, check the links... ;-)
