New Version of SDL MAME for OSX – March 13,2010

It is now up to date with the .137 baseline. Grab SDL MAME from the Box File Widget or from the homepage. Don’t forget you will want to grab the one that best suits your system. Leopard users go ahead and grab the 64 bit version, for the rest of you grab the 32 bit version.

How to Install SDL

This is a direct quote from the MESS read me file. According to this, you will need Xcode. Xcode requires a free Apple Developers Connection membership. It’s easy to sign up for, especially if you have an Apple ID already. The download took me a little over five minutes with Cable Internet from Comcast. You will also need to install the SDL library.

Mac OS X: you’ll need Xcode 2.3 or later (a free download from
developer.apple.com) and SDL 1.2.13. Get SDL from http://www.libsdl.org, click the
“SDL 1.2” download link in the sidebar, then scroll down to “Mac OS X” under
“Runtime Libraries”.  Download the “SDL-1.2.13.dmg” disk image and open it.
Click ‘Macintosh HD’ or whatever your Mac’s hard disk is named in the left
pane of a Finder window, then open the Library folder and drag the
SDL.framework folder from the SDL disk image into the ‘Frameworks’ folder.

Next unzip the SDLMAME source in your home directory.

For Intel Macs, type make -f makefile.sdl TARGETOS=macosx
For PowerPC Macs, type make -f makefile.sdl TARGETOS=macosx BIGENDIAN=1

NOTE: if you experience issues with OpenGL mode make sure your OS X is up to
date first, especially for Tiger (10.4.x) on Intel Macs.

Good luck. You will need to install SDL to get the most out of emulation on your Mac. I will be posting new SDL MAME and MESS articles soon and you will need SDL to be properly installed.
