I see. But don't forget that I'm a complete newbie at this. Is there a thread on how to run MAME from Terminal like that?
"Start MAME with the option "-window" (or set "window 1" in mame.ini)" <-- I wouldn't know where to begin with this. I'm used to MacMAME and MAME OS X. I did manage to get MAME_Tunes going with SDLMAME 0130, which I'm presuming was already "built" since I didn't use Terminal, but the vector line games were very dim on the screen.
I appreciate your help and patience. I was 15 when PacMan hit the arcades, and it was glorious
