Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator

 Mame is an arcade machine emulator: it includes a Z80, 6502 and
 lastly I86 uP emulators, joined to several arcade machine hardware
 emulators. Each arcade emulator contains a full description about
 hardware, mem maps, video, sounds and so, making possible that if
 you have original ROM images of a supported arcade game, you can
 play the game.
 .
 You NEED the rom images to play a game: this is not a game
 emulator, just an arcade machine one.
 .
 This package provides files common to all versions of the emulator.
 To get the actual emulator, install one or more of
 xmame-x, xmame-svga or xmame-sdl.
