That rom would be 1 or two files as its a Set rom, ie, loads the original master rom then loads the patched, different language, modded or fixed rom ontop.

I personally only use the main roms & you don't need the nocd version.

You only want sfiii3.zip

Ah okay. I only pulled that one because another poster had said that's the one he'd gotten running and it was a smaller size. I haven't had much luck getting a lot of the games I've tried to run. Are all the games on the "Miss" list working? Because I've tried several of them and they havbt worked for me.

I've used the missing list to track down games, some have worked and some have have not. I can't get Demon Front working, but that could be down to my first gen iPad or that I have not found the right rom set yet. Mame 0.145 is the best romset to go for.

Could you add a better way for custom game settings? Maybe add the setting into the rom ini file please, as currently it's not easy to change say a CRT filter strength if you have loads of games with custom settings, as there all in the plist.

Can anyone confirm how well does CPS3 games runs on IPAD2?

Ive seen videos of peoples playing with FPS counter at 60fps.
Since ipad2 had 200mhz more in terms of clock speed compared to iphone 4s, im trying to find a reason to get one and sell my 4s since i use it for gaming than anything else.

If anyone can make a video i will appreciate that, thanks

Partially, but thanks.
Are you using frameskip?
If not can you enable the Show FPS option and tell me if its fluid 60 fps?
If youre reaching those speeds without frameskip then thats what im looking for.
