MAME is an arcade system emulator that can be used as a libretro core. This core corresponds to the latest, bleeding edge version of the standalone MAME emulator. Therefore it requires the most powerful hardware to run of any of the libretro MAME cores. See MAME 2000, MAME 2003, MAME 2010, and MAME 2014 for better performance albeit support for fewer titles.


MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator and attempts to reproduce that game as faithfully as possible on a more modern general-purpose computer. MAME can currently emulate several thousand different classic arcade video games from the late 1970s through the modern era.
