Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator is a free and open source emulator designed to recreate the hardware of arcade game systems. The aim of MAME is to be a reference to the inner workings of the emulated arcade machines; the ability to actually play the games is considered "a nice side effect". The emulator now supports over seven thousand unique games and ten thousand actual ROM image sets, though not all of the supported games are playable. It worth mentioning that MESS was integrated upstream into MAME in the past.
Unofficial recent MAME 32-bit versions are available here..
