Hi RCranium666/SuperWeird/devensega,
Many thanks for your responses. I think I am going to jailbreak it as I can't live without my mame
As far as you know guys is it possible to jailbreak it with the latest ios 5.1?
Also, am I allowed here to ask how to do it? If so could you please send me the link where I can download all the relevant files?
Many thanks

Thats a stupid thing to say. Imagine if in 10-20 years time there's an emulator to play your old iOS games on when ioS might be extinct. You would love it. Playing those old classics. Then some stupid kid says how rubbish the game are as they're old or look bad. Just stupid. It's like someone dismissing any black and white films or non-cgi films

Not yet. I think 1on1c has jailbroken 5.1, but it hasn't been released yet. Wait for the untethered version.

I have spent the last couple of hours reading about Les Bird and I have to be honest and say he really is talking a new language for me - I cant fully understand what he is saying but does anyone know if he is saying you can install it onto a NON jailbroken ipad ?

Best Justin.
Hi Justin,

On my website that you linked to you can download the iMame Xcode project. In order to use it you'll need to sign up as an iOS developer with Apple, $99/year, and download and install Xcode to your Mac. You can then build a version of iMame and install it directly to your own non-jailbroken iPad using my Xcode project files.

- Les

For example is there a way to have the analog sticks work for games like Food Fight?
Not sure if you figured this out yet. What you want to do is setup the iControlPad to use special packet mode then when prompted by iMame to use iCade or iControlPad, select iControlPad. You'll then be able to use the analog controllers in your games. There's a drawback to this though, the iControlPad will send a lot of bluetooth data when the analog nubs are moved so to get decent performance you'll need an iPad 2 or better.

Go to my website using the link at bottom for more information.

It can be added to imame4all in about 10 minutes.

I have Super Mario Bros running right now on my custom Mame 37b5 build retrofitted with the Playchoice-10 driver. It can be put into imame4all very easily. But it uses some extra buttons for the channel select and enter input. I think it would work on ios with some button mapping.

Keep in mind though that playchoice-10 has two screens one on top of the other. I don't see how you could play this on an iphone. It would be so tiny. Maybe on an ipad though.

But it would only be of use if you have a jailbroken ios device right now since we may not get any updates of imame on the app store.
Freeze, can you send me the files to get this to work and I'll update my iMame4all Xcode project. Contact me via the email link on my website (linked below).

Default IMAME and new ipad

Hello, does this Imame version work with the new Ipad? I thought it did, but can someone check it please? The non jailbreak version, of course. Best regards

You can still install iMame on your device without jailbreaking but you'll have to join the iOS developer program through Apple and download Xcode. You can then download my iMame4All Xcode project and build and install it directly to your own device, without jailbreaking. The iOS developers program costs $99/year. Yes, that's a hefty price to pay just to install iMame but you can also download my mirror of the iDOS emulator (DOSBOX) for the iPad and install that too. See the link below.
