It still crashes right after importing the new game list.

So I also set the numprocessors to 1, cleared the cache and removed the mamepgui.ini. Does not help at all.

I think an update of MAMEPGUI would be nice, I still miss the Cmd+Q option to quit.

I'd say it's time to consider alternatives...

Compiled MAME from svn just now and M+GUI doesn't crash.

ClarkKent: do you really have a single core processor, is it one of the old iMacs with a Core Solo?

I found the reason for crashing by myself: there was a mame.ini inside the folder where I keep all the MAME frontends (I keep them separately from MAME). No idea why MAMEPGUI creates a new one!? Nevertheless after deleting this mame.ini all is working fine now!

Why should we consider alternatives?? MAMEPGUI is just a great, the greatest!, frontend for MacOS X at the moment. All other frontends are missing some options. So an update would be nice...

Edit: There is only one thing MAMEPGUI can't do - it does not show the flyers because the .zip is 5.8 GB in size (official zip format does not support files more than 4GB). I know that I can unzip all files but I like to have all in one single zip file. Would be nice if a solution could be found for this problem...

Well, AFAIK M+GUI was abandoned, which means there will be no more updates. But I might be wrong, and/or someone else might pick it up and extend it from the current source... I don't want to give the impression that other front-ends are "better", but I know there are at least some (including my own) that are still actively developed.

Ahhh..thank you, so that's why icons.zip doesn't work either, it's +8GB.

You must have BIG icons then, or was that a joke smile?!

A WinRAR is you. Sorry about the typo.

icons.zip still doesn't work with M+GUI. I really like M+GUI but it sure has weird bugs.
