MAME 0.180 Open-Source Arcade Machine Emulator Lets You Play Atari Space Lords

MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) 0.180 is here as the most advanced build of the open source software, bringing with it lots of exciting new features. For starters, there’s now support for booting to the RISC OS desktop on an emulated Acorn Archimedes machine thanks to the latest ARM CPU core improvements, which also allow for Aristocrat Mark 5 gambling machines to boot and run in demonstration mode. Moreover, MAME 0.180 finally reverse-engineered Atari Space Lords’ protection making the space combat game playable. NBA Jam Extreme and Batman Forever games are now playable with sound thanks to the emulation of the Acclaim RAX sound board. Lots of improvements landed for the Magnet System emulation too, and some long-standing graphical issues were fixed for Altered Beast and The Lost Castle in Darkmist.
