Binary package “xmame-common” in ubuntu maverick
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.
