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.

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.

Im not an emulator guy or a MAME guy so i didnt know what would and wouldnt work.

Crysis.zip ran fine though.
What about that old TMNT arcade game? You think that would work?

i tried it but after rescanning the ROMs the rom didnt show up...so no

I wish someone would release an SNES emu on the appstore, if only for a short while. So now would be the opportunity to do that seeing as how the appstore shuts down tomorrow.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Turtles in Time
Sunset Riders
COW Boys of Moo Mesa
x-Men
The Simpsons
Spiderman
Captain America
Double Dragon
Metal Slug series


All awesome arcade games that should run fine with this emulator. I think some problems you guys might have is getting the correct rom sets to work with the version of mame this app is using.

I haven't tried this app because I have arcade machines in my basement and a mame cab setup with all the games. If I didn't, then I'd be all over this app lol

Anyone get the terminator 2 game controls to work? For the life of me I cannot figure out how to calibrate it.

Many of the popular NES titles made it to the arcade as Playchoice-10 and/or VS. games.

I would guess so - it showed in search when I first went to it, but was gone when I went to download it to my devices directly (no time to sync at the moment)

The direct link still works though!

Well, luckily, I have it in my iTunes library. If anyone gets any of the SMB games or any old Nintendo games running on this, please post how you did it, that would be awesome!!!

There is a lot of misinformation in this thread (and the one on the front page), so I'll try to make this as clear as I can manage:

*You need zipped ROM images from the MAME 37b5 romset to use games other than what is included in the app itself. This is NOT the same as the MAME 144u1 or whatever the current set is. ROMs from that set will not likely work.

*The ROMs are the same ones as used by the GP32, GP2X, Dingoo and likely Dreamcast versions of MAME. Those are big hints on how to locate them, but the rest is up to you. The XBOX1 MAMEDoX set (or CoinOPS or whatever they call it now) will NOT work.

*If using a PC, you need iExplorer to access the app's file structure. You do not need to jailbreak if using this.

Any questions that don't involve ROM requests?
