About this game

MAME4droid (0.139u1) is developed by David Valdeita (Seleuco) as a port of the MAME 0.139 emulator by Nicola Salmoria and the MAME team. It emulates arcade games supported by this version of MAME which includes over 8000 different ROMs.

* MAME4droid is an EMULATOR and DOES NOT INCLUDE ROMS OR COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL OF ANY KIND.

This version of MAME4droid was designed to be used with dual-core Android devices because it is based on the PC MAME version which requires higher specifications than the older versions.

Even with a high end device, do not expect "modern" arcade games from the 90s and beyond to necessarily work at full speed or compatibility. Some games like Outrun and the Mortal Kombat series are badly optimized and require at least a 1.5ghz dual core device.

With over 8000 games supported, some games will run better than others; some games may not run at all. It is impossible to support such a vast number of titles, so please do not email the developer asking for support for a specific game.

After installing, place your MAME-titled zipped roms in /sdcard/MAME4droid/roms folder.

This MAME4droid version uses only '0.139' romset.

The Sept 5 update made this app unplayable. It no longer recognizes downloaded game files. The message informes users that the files need to be moved to a specific ROM folder that is extremely hard to find. Once it is excavated, I copied every ZIP to that folder, only to find that the app still doesn't see any files there, even after a complete phone restart. I used to brag about how I could play Ms. PacMan on my phone. Those days are over now, sadly.

Works really well, easy to set up. I was playing some classics in only a few minutes after just some small changes using a Bluetooth controller, however therein lies my one request to make this perfect, if I was able to map some inputs to two separate buttons or make macros for them pressing two or so at once id rate it a full five. It's hard to make it happen without just making a trigger button one of them to begin with and that's awkward for general play. Still love it, just a suggestion.

A great emulator plagued with unresponsive controls. Great arcade support and emulation quality is quite good. However, the touchscreen controls has a MAJOR DEAD SPOT. The massive dead spot is right in the middle of the directional pad/stick (not outside it) and extends outwards some. Not only that, the directional pad randomly stops registering touches (not even in the huge dead spot). It's not the game either as it does it on all of them. Would be great if this was remedied by the dev.
