MAME 0.207 Released

MAME 0.207

Is almost the end of February, and more importantly it’s time for MAME 0.207 to be released!  We’ve added two Nintendo Game & Watch titles this month: Fire (wide screen) and Snoopy Tennis.  If you’re at all interested in plug-and-play TV games, this is going to be a huge update, with all the newly-supported JAKKS Pacific titles, including Disney Princess, Dragon Ball Z, Nicktoons, Spider-Man, and Wheel of Fortune, as well as a number of matching Game-Keys.  The other big batch of additions this month comes in the form of a whole lot of e-kara cartridge dumps from Japan.  For younger players, we’re steadily filling out the V.Smile software list, with eighteen newly supported titles.  The VGM software list has been updated with the latest video game music rips, and we’ve added some more original floppy dumps and clean cracks to the Apple II software lists.

With the latest improvements to the MIPS R4000 CPU, WD33C93 SCSI and SGI Newport graphics emulation, it’s possible to install and run IRIX in MAME.  This is a milestone achievement, and wouldn’t have been possible without some amazing dedication and collaboration on the part of the contributors and team members involved.  With the addition of graphics and mouse support, Windows 1.0 runs on MAME’s Tandy 2000 emulation.  MAME continues to add additional variants of supported systems, including the HP 9825T and the Esselte Modulab educational system.

Newly supported arcade games include an earlier prototype of Rise of the Robots, bootlegs of Ghost Chaser Densei and The Glob, and additional versions of Raiden Fighters 2, Guardian Storm, Pasha Pasha Champ, Lethal Enforcers, and X-Men.  General usability improvements include friendlier Apple II disassembly, the restoration of key map support in SDL builds (Linux/macOS), and better initial window positioning on Windows.

You can  get the source and Windows binary packages from the download page.
