AdvanceMAME/MESS

AdvanceMAME/MESS

AdvanceMAME/MESS are unofficial MAME/MESS versions with an advanced video support for helping the use with TVs, Arcade Monitors, Fixed Frequencies Monitors and also for PC Monitors.

The main difference compared with the official emulators is that the Advance versions are able to program directly the video board to always get a video mode with the correct size and frequency.

Generally the Advance emulators are able to use a video mode which does not require any stretching or other unneeded effects to match the original arcade display.

Mame is an arcade machine emulator: it includes a Z80, 6502 and lastly I86 uP emulators, joined to several arcade machine hardware emulators.
