QMC2 Updated – MAME Front End

There is a new build for Mac OSX QMC2 users. Grab it from the Box File Widget that is located on the right hand side of the blog homepage. It has been split up into parts due to the file size restrictions. Here is a little more information from the homepage.

Download the latest build of QMC2 for Mac OS X (x86, ppc) here: qmc2-macosxuniversal-0.34.dmg

Qt-wise, the package is self-contained, that is it already includes the Qt 4 framework (4.7.3). You only need to additionally install the SDL framework (1.2.14), which is required for MAME & MESS anyway on that platform. The binaries require Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and have been created and tested on 10.6 (x86 architecture).

If you want or need to build QMC2 from source (explained in this FAQ), note that XCode 4.x is currently NOT supported, only XCode 3.2 (due to a Qt limitation; community patches for qmake to support XCode 4 already exist, though)!

Please also note that there’s a Qt/Phonon bug that may cause a post-mortem crash on exit, which you can safely ignore (though it may be annoying). If it happens to you, there’s nothing we can do about it, but you can disable the annoying crash report dialog if you will:

$ defaults write com.apple.CrashReporter DialogType none

To re-enable the crash report, just replace none with prompt.

I am an Old School gamer with roots in emulation and gaming. I love video games, but mostly I love the old ones from our past. Emulation is a way to experience all these old games on your personal computer.
