Ample MAME Interface Updated

Kelvin Sherlock has released a bug fix release of the Ample MAME Interface for MAC OS. The latest version 0.244-1, includes the following updates:

  • Includes experimental Uthernet II support. IPRAW, MACRAW, and UDP sockets should be fine. TCP/IP sockets are a little rougher (resends and timeouts not yet implemented) but wget65 and A2Stream worked in my tests.
  • Tested: IP65 (requires a recent version with DHCP fixes)
  • Tested: Marinetti (make sure you have the most recent Uthernet II link layer)
  • Tested: A2OSX (the initial DHCP request sometimes get dropped (this is a vmnet/MIS issue) so you may need to wait a couple minutes and run ifconfig a second time)
  • If you encounter problems, let me know. This code isn’t in MAME (yet) and they can’t help you.
  • Reminder: Ample MAME uses vmnet / Macintosh Internet Sharing for ethernet emulation. DHCP is required and you’ll need to go in the settings and Fix VMNET permissions to work correctly.
