MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. When used in conjunction with images of the original arcade game's ROM and disk data, MAME attempts to reproduce that game as faithfully as possible on a more modern general-purpose computer. MAME can currently emulate several thousand different classic arcade video games from the late 1970s through the modern era.

This is the subreddit.

HyperSpin and front-end related discussions on Reddit!

HyperSpin is a front-end, it is not a game or an emulator. A front-end is a menu system that can launch other programs and emulators from one menu. Without a front-end you would have to individually launch each program in Windows. If you're using an emulator you would also have to find and launch the games you want to play. HyperSpin simplifies that process by using a system of menus to launch your games.
