To play Neo Geo games (King of fighters, metal slug, etc) you need "neogeo bios". I had some problem finding a proper one but here it is:

Just copy to the same folder of ROMs (it should be kept as a zip file).

How do we map keyboard input?

A front end to this app is MAME Library. Like he says on this site: "MAME Library is an iPhoto-like front end/ launcher for MAME OS X."

Like lokheed said, this program needs a front end :(

The addition of joysticks (via HID) finally makes this viable. Very well done, but desperately needs some kind of front-end. I know the developer does not wish to integrate one into the program, but at this point, it functions very well, but is not very usable.

Despite the usability problems, the author deserves praise for finally making a universal Mame port to OS X. Excellent job!
