MAMERunner is a front-end (or shell) to run arcade games using the MAME emulator program.
MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator which is able to play arcade games.
Since MAME is only a command-line emulator, MAMERunner can be used as a graphical front-end for MAME so that you can easily select, play, and manage games.
Games do not come with MAME or MAMERunner, instead you must supply your own. Sample games are available from the MAME website Downloads section http://mamedev.org/roms/
If you download these games, either place them directly into the \ROMS\ subdirectory or use the Add Game option in MAMERunner.
