Well, it was a real scavenger hunt finding all the support files (If anything ever needed a "readme" it's this) but BOY was it worth it! Very useful, intuitive and spritely.

Don't know how I got along without it up until now.

Thanks for the utility, Vas and congratulations!!

Sorry, been way too long since I updated anything. Work's been pretty busy lately. Anyway, here's a new version, which I guess is what the first version should have been. Here's what's new:

  • Multi-threaded - shows what's happening when starting and quitting instead of just beachballing, also saves cache in the background instead of waiting until you quit
  • Should detect when info files have been updated and prompt to reload data
  • Menu item and toolbar button to reload list from info files (no need to manually delete cache file)
  • Real alias/symlink support - follows deep hierarchies and detects loops
  • Support for all image formats that NSImage can load (not just png any more)
  • Image thumbnails on buttons
  • Double-click image button to show image at full size in another window


Images (screenshots, etc.) still can't be in folder hierarchies, and can't be inside zip file. Image format is detected by filename extension - sorry, this is Cocoa, so it's much easier to do that way.

This release has a lot of big changes, and may be less stable as there's only me testing it. If it crashes, please give me the crash dump so I can fix it.

OK, fixed the crashing bug. It happened when files weren't found, and was introduced with the alias support code. Anyway, it should all be good now. Also added ability to manually specify location of MacMAME (just for you, jonceramame ;-), and added a read me file with info on how to get everything you need in place.

Download <Removed>

P.S. thank you so much for the crash dump!

This seems like a very similar project to one sitting on my hard drive. It isn't really in great shape but the idea was to take all its information from the history.dat file so you get screenshots, history, trivia etc...

You could also have your roms anywhere and start up your roms from within this shell. No time to do any more just now and there are a few problems with it but who knows, I might start working on it again soon.

MacMAMEinfoX 0.6 with support for SDLMAME is now available! Grab it while it's hot! The only visual changes are additional preferences to support integration with SDLMAME, so no new screenshot.

Make sure you read the included readme file before bombarding me with questions wink

Download it here <removed> (204kB disk image)

Oh, yeah, it's Universal, too. That's why it's twice as big to download.

Quick update - MacMAMEinfoX produces arguments for SDLMAME 0.106 - it probably doesn't work with the latest version of SDLMAME. I will fix it soon.

Great! May I suggest to support standard (ie not MacMame) catver.ini files and adding a preference pane to specify location of snaps, cabinets, marquees etc?

Also, it would be nice to be able to specify which fields are used in the iTunes-like game browser.

Thanks, I really like your frontend!

Hmm... I've thought about doing .ini category files. Maybe I'll do it now. But first I want per-game preferences...

(And I'd like SDLMAME not to change its command-line syntax on me like that.)

MacMAMEinfoX 0.7 is now available:

  • Works with SDLMAME 0.108u1
  • Per-game options (look in the File menu - works best with SDLMAME)
  • More SDLMAME options can be configured through the UI, including screen orientation
  • Can specify additional command-line options for SDLMAME (for options with no UI controls, even per-game)
  • Supports Windows INI format category files (for you, CRP :p )
  • Removed some references to MacMAME from the UI
  • MAME integration is now handled by plugins (which can be manipulated from the finder info window - this will be useful in the future)


Preferences structure has changed, so some options from 0.6 won't carry forward. You might want to delete ~/Library/Preferences/com.vastheman.macmameinfox.plist before using version 0.7 (it will still work if you don't, but there will be leftover crud in the preferences file).

Download MacMAMEinfoX 0.7.1 (268kB disk image, requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later)

As usual, suggestions, error reports and crash dumps are appreciated.
