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.

So how does one go about installing these roms into the app? I'm totally new to these iOS emulators and stuff.

This works a treat - especially with my iCade . Does anybody know how to delete roms from within the app?

Probably the same way as you added.

With the iCade, do the on screen controls go away when it's paired?

Can't wait, getting an iCade for Christmas and mame was the only reason I would have JB. No need now!

Dunno why I cannot download it from iPad1 but is able to do so with iPhone 3GS...

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

Honestly, I was never terribly good at games. - Finch (PoI S2E16)

iExplorer is for Windows and Mac, is free, and works flawlessly to drop ROMs into the Documents folder.

Just to reiterate folks - you must stick to 0.375d for rom compatibility. I'm simply stunned that this is available - glad I was able to get it before it's pulled.

Good to know. I'll check out iExplorer to see if it's better than PhoneView.

Great. Thanks! Got Pinball Action (set 1) and Pinbo (set 1) from here and it works just fine. Screenshot of Pinball Action on iPad 2:



Runs perfect smooth on iPad 2 with very good physics! Recommended.

How can I change the left/right buttons?
