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.

There is one somewhere, I just don't remember where. I'm guessing Seleuco posted it earlier in this forum. Street Fighter 1, 2, champion edition, and turbo all work. Couldn't get any MK games to work though. Might have to look into it.

The romset is 0.37b5.

First post, so I begin with a big hello to all forum members.

I have a problem with iMAme4all 1.10. It was running wothout problems. I have an iCade and was very pleased with everything.

I have 2 small daughters, the use my iPad 2 to play various games. The start everything they see just to try. I guess they messed up with iMame4all.

The emulator starts, connects with the iCade and lets you play, but whenever you are playing a game and move the joystick, it seems like some of the game tunnings are also controlled with it: moving right and left make a message appear "Sample #1 volume", same with sample #2 #3 ... sometimes other similar messages appear.

So it looks like the girls entered the mame menu and changed the key setting for a lot of these "tunnings"

I'm unable to enter the mame configuration menu. Help says something about star+select but I have tried every two-button combination. I also read somewhere it had been disabled for stability reasons.

Reinstalling the program does not solve the issue.

Any help would be very appreciated, thanks!

This sounds as if you have to run iexplorer on your PC to browse the iPhone contents, find the imame folder and delete the .CFG of the app (I think it was mame.cfg, but I'm not sure). Next time you run the app, it generates the CFG again with the correct button configuration.

Indeed. If it breaks in iOS 6 its over for a non-jailbroken iMame.

I have uploaded a zip file to the main google code web site with some missing files that enable cheats, artwork and set the correct splash/main art so favourites are correct drawing.

Read readme.txt included.

cheers!
Hi, I dusted off my copy of imame on my ipad and tried placing the cheat.dat file in the documents folder in imame. However, I enabled the cheats in the imame menu after selecting the game but there seems to be no way of selecting or activating the cheats. I opened the cheat.dat file with wordpad and can see "un squadron" and the invincibility cheat listed but can't acivate it in game. Could anyone help? Thanks!

If you own a Ipad 1 it's no problem. You cant update to ios6 so you can play imame forever.

I recently upgraded from a 16 gig iPad 2 to a 32 gig iPad 2. Almost everything went across, but i can't get iMAME to load on the new iPad - iTunes simply tells me it won't load with a fairly generic error message. Anyone know anything I can do to get it on the new iPad?
