  • MAME Arcade Emulator Released iPhone/iPod Touch


    mame4iphone, the latest great emulator port by Zodttd is now available via Cydia. MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator and was created with the intent on preserving classic arcade games by recreating these hardware games with software. What does this mean to you? You can play all those classic games from the past (as far back as 1970s) on your iPhone or iPod Touch!

    Some notes:
    • Based on MAME v0.37 Beta 5
    • Supports thousands of MAME ROMs
    • Sounds is supported but off by default. Go to "Now Playing" and slide the sound slider to turn sound on
    • To press OK. Use RIGHT then LEFT then RIGHT then LEFT to press OK.
    • Save states not supported
    • Upon installing a folder /var/mobile/Media/ROMs/MAME/ is already made for you. Place your MAME-titled zipped ROMs in the /var/mobile/Media/ROMs/MAME/roms/ folder

    Thanks Zodttd for another great emulator port. He's pretty much the master of porting so if you love his work head over and give him some love.

      I can't get this to work either. Loaded the neogeo bios file in the roms folder, every game i download gives me an error.

      If someone gets it working, please upload a video to gauge performance, sounds excellent to play, but wouldnt be much good running at 5-10 fps.

      This is great! I'm in my mid twenties and spent hella time in the arcades as a youth. I found Bad Dudes and put it on my iPhone. The frame rate for the game actually woks great. Street Fighter II Champion Edition did not work as well....too bad.

      Once a game is started it will ask you to press OK. Use RIGHT then LEFT then RIGHT then LEFT to press OK.

      holy crap, this is definately awsome but none of the games actually work. and it runs so slow! the sound drives me nuts so i just leave it off. Is there a way to stop all services on the phone and try running it again and hopefully itll run smoother?
