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.

(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.

Outside of the "Golden Age" stuff, I'm partial to Top Hunter, a quirky multiworld platformer. Pac-Land is also good to see where SMB would go.

Is Garou Mark of the Wolves supported?

Keep the recommendations coming guys. Especially newer games, from 90s onward.

Moonwalker didn't work here by the way.

Uh oh, I think I f* up.

I brought a emulation menu by accident while playing a game and fumbled in a few options. Turns out now no game recognizes the up direction on my dpad. Not one of them.

And now I can't bring the options menu back. Any help?

Moonwalker works perfect. You are not using the correct rom. And a hint, the bootleg version works flawlessly.

Needless to say, nearly everyone posting on this thread has not bought the arcade games, particularly those who downloaded that 1.6 gb set making the rounds. But guess what, even if you own the pcbs that doesn't make legal to download the ROMs (at least not in the US).

I'm not saying that MAME is immoral, or even unethical. But it's definitely illegal to download ROMs in the US.
No its not illegal, i have the right to download or dump the roms on my pcbs for archival purposes in the event one of them goes corrupt. I also have the right to use that dump in any device just so long as i don't resell and retain the backup copy. I am also allowed to use that dump on any device as long as I am only using one copy at a time and not using another backup copy simultaniously. The same laws that govern dvds also govern the data on the pcbs i own.

You are legally able to make a copy of your dvd, download a copy if you do not have the means to make a copy yourself, burn it to a disc and use it in place of the original copy. The law protects these rights and sets strict guidelines on usage and backing up materials you own the right to use.

Downloading is not illegal, distributing it is. If it is being distributed in a country that does not adhere to the same laws we do, that is not my problem. All i am liable for is the laws and useage in the country i reside in and in the USA i have these rights.

If you don't believe me check the ESA website, they are the group that enforces software copyrights in the united states. It explictly states the fact mentioned above. They are the group that will go after you and work in coordination with the authorities to enforce these laws.

I'm still looking for a copy of gigawing that works. I'm also looking for the sound samples for batsugun. Happy holidays!

Everything in this thread might as well be written in Chinese. Being 34 years old i have no clue how these emulators work and downloading Roms and zips a and whatever else. This seems really cool but i dont understand anything. Wow i feel old. And stupid. lol

gigawing is not in the supported list so it's not going to work with this version of imame.

if there are unofficial samples for batsugun they surely will not work by simply putting them in the samples folder for imame. this version is just not programmed for sound on that game. i know i love that game but we are talking mame 37b5 here
