Platform: Linux, OS X, Unix
First release: January 5, 2001
asq – a simple front end for MAME emulator cabinets. It runs in a terminal window (using curses) on UNIX/Linux/OSX (might work on Windows with CygWin or ActivePerl).
It can optionally display images/screenshots for any games you have. (if perl Tk installed)
It uses MAME emulator keybindings, so you can control your MAME cabinet using just your MAME controls.
It’s a single perl script. Requires:
– Perl, which kicks ass
– Perl::Curses (Also needs a oneline change to Curses::UI, see the top of the script).
– Optionally Perl/Tk
