Mame's User Interface
This is the default user interface for Mame. For many years, Mame was strictly a command line program and relied on frontends to make it "user friendly". MameUI was the "go to" version of Mame as it had a Windows based user interface which made things a lot easier. It also supported artwork and dat based information for each system. Mame did eventually catch up a few years ago by adding a basic game list but still lacked any filters and game setup. Finally in 2016, version 0.171 integrated the MewUI frontend, giving full on-screen configuration and a filtered system list. This page will take you through how to use the UI and how to configure Mame's systems.
You can navigate the UI with a mouse, joystick or keyboard. Here are the default keys...
|UI Control Keys||Description|
