I dunno, it sounds like bbum's adding a real live game selection list, which would help the user friendliness a lot.

Just checked the Windows docs, and frame advance is SHIFT-P while paused. It works in MAME OS X, too.

Quite. I've got no desire to learn Objective-C.

Wow...

I really didn't mean to open a can of worms here...

I know that an update to MacMAME is no trivial task, but I was just wondering if the project was still alive, and looking for a more or less 'official' word.

Anyone?

Only Brad has the official word and he ain't talking. But now that the death of Carbon has been announced it'd be wasted effort on his part.

I asked Brad about it, and the official word is, "I don't know." wink

He said he's keeping the option open to update it, and does think about it, but has no immediate plans.

So at this point, MacMAME is not dead. It's just not updated, either.

Given the sheer amount of core changes since it was last updated it would be completely new code at this point. So Nathan can continue to pine for the fjords, we'll advance MAME on OS X in the meantime wink

I can wait. There's nothing terribly compelling about any recent releases of MAME anyway.

Although I do look forward to the colors in the Astrocade driver getting fixed. wink

Yeah, the discrete sound and video for Radarscope and Donkey Kong is a total snooze for retrohounds, I gotta say wink
