Alternatives to Mame for Mac with any license

  • RetroArch

    What is RetroArch? RetroArch is a modular multi-system emulator system that is designed to be fast, lightweight, and portable. It has features lacking in some emulators frontends, such as real-time rewinding and game-aware shading.

  • OpenEmu

    Open Emu is an open source project to bring game emulation to OS X as a first class citizen, leveraging modern OS X technologies such as Cocoa, Core Animation and Quartz, and 3rd party libraries like Sparkle for auto-updating. Open Emu is based on a modular architecture, allowing for game-engine plugins, this means Open Emu can support a host of different emulation engines and back-ends while retaining a familiar OS X native front-end.

  • Nostlan

    A front-end or user interface (UI) is the presentation and interaction layer of an app or website. Most modern emulator apps have basic game list UIs that you can interact with using a mouse/keyboard but not a game controller. Nostlan looks similar to media viewers like Kaleidescape and AppleTV. You can interact with it using a mouse or game controller. Unlike other popular front-end launchers for video game emulators, Nostlan has a minimalistic design that prioritizes box art, not metadata.

  • SDLMAME / MESS

    SDLMame is a variant of M.A.M.E. (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator). SDLMame should work with both Mac, Linux and any other SDL framework supported OS. SDLMame provides Mac and Linux users the latest build of Mame with only minimal lag time against the Dos and Win builds. http://sdlmame.lngn.net/ Ideally you will need to install SDL Framework first and use a Mame Frontend (I recommend MameLauncher for Mac).
