Need help! So I've got this set up on my LG G5, and have a slew of games on my external sd card, but when I go to set the file location, it tells me it can't find/create the location and asks me if the drive is writable. I know it is, as I have other emus also using the card no problem. For the record i have android 7.0 according to my settings. Please help! UPDATE: I solved it myself by manually creating the folders it needed. The writing issue was apparently only for the folders and now it works great!
Impossible, even with moving files around and redownloading and changing destination paths in Mame and restarting dozens of times, for it to recognise the games and allow you to play them. It simply says no ROMs found. Obviously I'm doing something wrong. But moreso the creators of this app need to make it significantly more easy to use. User friendliness is not a scary monster to avoid. Learn it. If it's so hard to make it easy to use, why do emulators for every single other platform and console make this incredibly easy to do, by simply having a normal file system where you choose what to open? Instead of trying to set up a menu system which is appropriate for some situations, but quite obviously not all cases. Yet you're required to use it if you want to use this app. And if it doesn't work, well, tough. Please app creators, learn from the other, higher rated emulator apps. Make a basic file system to use instead of a weird system that requires you to change your phone's entire default download destination. It's not hard.
Trash I done everything correct. From downloading the right rom to clicking yes when opening the app to storing all zip files in roms folder in mames4droid folder and still can't play. Looking through the comment section on here, a good number of people are asking for help. Still I see no comments from the developers trying to help. The people in the comment section are more help then the developers. DON'T DOWNLOAD the app is TRASH
Very good port The default joystick setting makes some games that require precise navigation almost unplayable. But after disabling the animation the performance is almost perfect. Well done. Now back to playing Tetris Atari (Tengen), the best Tetris there is to play even if it's illegal.
Arcade greatness People are asking "Where do I get roms?" well, go to your PC and type "Lazarus" into Google. Also, don't forget to donate to the developer. Or find me via Hangouts, get my details, post a USB stick and I'll copy you the lot. Can't say fairer than that.
It works... with a little patience Be ready to follow a tutorial for fixing your romsets. It's pretty straightforward if you pay attention. Using a moga pro power on a oneplus 3. No problems, but there is an occasional slight lag with the Bluetooth. I think that's more of an Android problem. Thank you to the developers for their excellent work!
