What version of MAME were you using previously? The required ROMs change from version to version.

I am a Newbie, so the current one is the only one that I have used.... so... for some reason, I cant see any of the games that were audited in the play window.

I have tried to reaudit them, but to no help.... I thought maybe one of the roms may have messed with it.... I dont know if it did...

What version of MAME were you using before with your ROMs though?

As for why, the MAME FAQ has you covered. And no, this isn't a Mac-specific torture, it happens with the baseline Windows version too.

Just installed 0.135 last night. Got my fresh set of ROMs installed. The games I've tried all work well. One issue I'm running into though is that MAME crashes with a big crash report every time I quit. I don't even have to do anything - start MAME, quit, and within ten seconds or so, a big crash report comes up on the screen. Says:

Small question.

I'm rebuilding MAME OSX from scratch source and I'm getting a slew of build errors. Do I need the 10.4 dependencies? What other dependencies do I need to build this?

You need a version of Xcode < 3 apparently.

Oh sugar.

Thank goodness Apple's got Xcode on their site.

i wonder if there's a build time flag that can be set to properly rebuild MAME OSX with out having to downgrade Xcode?

If it needs something from 10.5.4 maybe you could install the 10.5.4 SDK from an older version of Xcode alongside your existing install?

I don't know if it will go down in flames though but if you're going to downgrade anyway maybe it's worth a try.

I have 3.2.1 installed here on Snow Leopard but I see the 10.5.4 SDK is installed when checking with System Profiler. Unfortunately I don't remember how it got there but I know it had something to do with compiling the SDL Library.
