App description: iMAME is an application designed to recreate the hardware of arcade game systems in software on modern personal computers and other platforms. The intention is to preserve gaming history by preventing vintage games from being lost or forgotten.

Includes;

Circus
Crash
Fire One
Hard Hat
Robot Bowl
Side Track
Spectar
Star Fire
Targ

Note: iMAME is not officially endorsed by Nicola Salmoria or the MAME Team. iMAME is based on the iMame4all Xcode Project by Les Bird.

AnarKitty's comments:
(Mod Edit)

To make it clear for everyone:

YOU CANNOT ASK FOR ROMS HERE. YOU CANNOT POST LINKS FOR ROM HERE. YOU CANNOT GIVE OUT THE NAME OF ROM WEBSITES HERE. DO NOT PM PEOPLE TO ASK FOR ANY OF THESE THINGS EITHER -- ESPECIALLY NOT MODERATORS.

Technical discussions are fine, as well as reports of what works or doesn't work. Keep in mind that downloading and playing arcade ROMs is of questionable legality. Do not make us to go into this thread and start deleting posts.

Thanks!




Dunno about anyone else, but this is my ultimate Xmas miracle: a version of MAME on the App Store! Hope it works.

My iPhone is temporarily jailbroken. Is it possible to buy imame4all on Cydia, import to iTunes and install from there on an unbroken iPad?

I know it's a long shot, but maybe someone have tried it?

I thought as much, but it was worth the ask.
I'm so miffed that I missed the short window it was available on the AppStore.

Is there any way to delete roms that you don't want from within the app?

Yep - just delete via iExplorer or iFunbox the same way you got them in.

Thanks - I just wondered if there was a way to do it from actually within the app...

no i doubt it...only way is jailbreak. if you have a pc, xbox etc im sure you played mame games on there. probably wont see it again in appstore because of the roms are not intended to be free.

mabe have one idevice jailbroken and one not since there are many classics out there to play. i personally own many of these systems and games below - which are just collecting dust there are many other emulators for ios; Super Nes, Gameboy Color/Advanced, Sega Genesis/Master System/Game Gear, Sony Playstation, Spectrum, ScummVM LucasArts games etc

I was lucky enough to grab iMAME during the short time it was available but I never did anything with it. Now that I have most of the games I want running on the iPad 2 using Gridlee, I'm thinking about setting up iMAME on my iPhone 4 (.139u1 just doesn't run well on the 4). One of the most helpful things in getting my games running on Gridlee was being able to snag a ROM set mentioned in the Gridlee post where each ROM had all the necessary files to run so that you don't have to worry about BIOS/Parent/Child relationships. Does such a set exist for iMAME (I believe it runs .37b5)?
