MAME 0.153


It is kind of hard to say that MAME 0.153 has an interface and this is due to the fact that MAME runs like a DOS application. We can't blame the software as it tries to emulate an arcade machine on a regular PC which isn't an easy task. So what happens when you run this application? It opens in a black window that takes all of your display. Right in the middle of it you will see a dialog box that shows you all the games that you have on your PC. Then there are links that show you how to change the controls in the game and that's pretty much it – you can start your first game.

Of course MAME 0.153 does need games – otherwise you will look at this application only and wonder that the fuss is all about. Fortunately you can find tons of MAME games online and most (if not all) of them are free. So use one of the online search engines to find a site that offers such games – it is not difficult and it will take you just a few minutes. Download a game that you want to play and then put it in the ROMS folder in the folder where MAME is located. Then run MAME and you will see your new game right in the program menu. It is that simple to use MAME 0.153.


MAME will definitely bring you back to the good old times of arcade games – long before personal computers took over the world. The application is completely free and easy to use and if this is not enough games for it are also free. So grab it, run it and enjoy old classic games like never before!
