Xmame is the X11/Unix port of MAME. MAME is the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator, an arcade (coin-op) video game emulator.

The latest stable release is capable of playing over 2000 arcade games.

What's New in This Release:
Everything from MAME 0.106 (changes-mame.html) and MESS 0.106 (changes-mess.html).
Reverted a change that was intended to work around some Metacity focus misbehavior but was causing all window managers to have focus problems in fullscreen mode.
Fixed a link error for messtest. (Arnaud G. Gibert)
The clean68k target now removes libcpu.a, which fixes link errors for successive builds made without a full clean. (Arnaud G. Gibert)
Fixed an alignment bug in the OpenGL driver which caused Defender, and possibly other 16bpp games, to be skewed.
The mouse is no longer automatically grabbed in fullscreen mode. Bugzilla bug 877.
Replaced fuzzy game name comparison with the method used by MAME for Windows, which lists approximate matches when an exact match isn't found.
A BadMatch error should no longer occur for the OpenGL target in some cases, such as when 16bpp mode is used with recent releases of the binary NVIDIA driver.
Fixed the tiny build target. (Mike Frysinger)
Added CFLAGS for the Blackfin CPU. (Mike Frysinger)
BUILD_ZLIB and BUILD_EXPAT can now be disabled without having to edit the makefile. (Mike Frysinger)
