If you have one made after 2008, it's actually the easiest system to compile MAME for, by miles.

The issues described here apply only to obsolete hardware / OSes, kinda like how building MAME on XP (or anything 32-bit, really) is gonna be soon.

Unless you have a Mac more than 10 years old, there is no reason to get stressed out. MacBox360 has an old Mac with a PowerPC (IBM/Motorola) processor from 2005 or older, as Apple completed switching to Intel processors in 2006. All PowerPC Macs were declared officially obsolete by Apple in 2013.

Hmmm. With Intel/AMD processors then it a half of a PC as well. Not a full Apple. laugh

This is not related to PPC or Intel sdlmame but to both of them: am I wrong or the good old trasparent gearbox (Hi-Low) of PolePosition is missing?

The gearbox shows for me. Hit Tab while the game is running, go to Video Options, and pick Shifter-L or Shifter-R, depending which side of the screen you want it to appear on.

Resolved: "Use Bezels" was disabled, this confused me because the traslucent gearbox is technically an "overlay" but it was not enabled by "Use Overlay" :-) Many thanks ;-)

Ok so with the death knell for MAME on MacOS 10.7 looming ahead..
I scrapped my Macports stuff awhile ago and switched over to Homebrew, just checked and it appears Homebrew does in fact have GCC 5.3 available (Im in the middle of installing it so hopefully it actually works). Is installing this enough to keep up for those of us that cant run out and buy a newer Mac? Im assuming there is a way I can point MAME to use GCC 5.3 either by some sort of config flag, or putting the directory Brew installs its executables in first in my PATH? I dont really know too much about Clang or how its tied into Mac OS X, but from a bunch of the Google results I found looking it up, Ive seen various ways to point to the newer GCC versions, however the one surefire way I saw was looking at a program that actually used a configure script which is where the variables were used to point to it. And obviously MAME doesnt have a ./configure step to it.

For MAME it's this:

Code:
make OVERRIDE_CXX=/path/to/c++ OVERRIDE_CC=/path/to/c OVERRIDE_LD=/path/to/ld ...

Awesome thanks for that!

Tax return time is coming up so hopefully Ill be getting a newer Mac Pro, but if not, at least I might have a band aid to tide me over and satisfy my OCD to keep MAME up to date hehe!
