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.

They have pc before them cause they're from the play choice 10 cabinets (an awful thing that Nintendo released into places years ago where you paid for time but could play all 10 of the games included on the cabinet) I remember putting a not insignificant amount into one of these just to see marios end credits roll!

Can you explain how these work please?

They don't seem to come up in iMame, I have for example pc_smb2.zip and playch10.zip which is the bios, but it's not appearing.

Are we sure that IMame supports this and has the drivers ?

if you are wondering whether a game has sound or not you can go to the imame options menu and turn on 'Show Info/Warnings'.

then when you start a game up it will pop up a message window with information of known issues for the game you are trying to play.

for example on batsugun it says ''The game lacks sound"

it can be helpful sometimes.

hmmm i don't see these on the supported games list:
http://code.google.com/p/imame4all/wiki/GameList

according to the link below the playchoice-10 games were added as of mame version .37b7
http://mamedev.org/devwiki/index.php/MAME_0.37b7

as far i know imame is based only on mame .37b5 so it doesn't appear that the playchoice-10 games are supported. but i only have the .37b5 roms so i haven't tried any .37b7 specific games myself.

right. the games that were specifically added on .37b7 won't work on .37b5.

most games from the .37b7 romset are probably ok since they didn't change much from .37b5 to .37b7 but the *new* games they added on .37b7 wouldn't work on imame since it is based on .37b5.

that includes the playchoice-10 games.


but since i see this quote below i am not sure of it all now hahaha. Jonbazookaboz needs to check in to clarify this all.
