    MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) for Droid?

    I saw the thread about NES/SNES emulators...
    That got me to wondering... Is there a verison of MAME for Android?

    I've done some googling, annd found references to "Android Arcade" -
    but apparently that only supports a subset of what MAME does...
    (Capcom, Cave, and Neo Geo games)

    Is anyone aware of anything else out there?
    It would be interesting to see what the Droid does with some of these classic games....

    I'm in the process of trying out Jrioni Arcade...it has an option to rotate the screen, so you can use the Dpad of the Droid on the left side, so I was sold. There's a free lite version to try out, so give it a look.

    Jarcade works with many mame .34 roms and Sinistar does work, control is a bit hard though.

    I downloaded the paid version and rec'd my code etc.... I have a few issues I will list them in order. These issues may be common to all emulators on an android device, and there may be no work-arounds. If this is the case can someone please point that out. I don't want to talk bad about an app if the issuesI have are inherent to the OS and hardware limitations.

    1. No ability to "save state"
    2. If a phone call comes in the game is lost.
    3. a lot of the roms I got from the suggested website don't run It says it plays 34-35b roms or something like that. Does anyone know of a MAME ROM site that lists these specs?

    I would love to see MAME on Android. Although I am not sure how they would solve the scaling. I had MAME on the Palm but it was a tad flaky.

    It may not be a good idea to ask for ROM sites on a forum as the MAME nazis always use forums to track down and shut down these places. You might try to find a place that sells a set of MAME DVDs. Usually you can get a set of like 5 or 6 dvds which have all ROMS up to current times. Many of the old school games will work under the 34.

    Sinstar used a 49 way joystick. I can't imagine that the d-pad will do it justice. But give it a whirl. That said, I have to imagine that Defender would be a PITA too. Imagine touch screen Robotron (utilizing multitouch).

    A MAME ROM site that is still up and doesn't require you to do any tricks to download ROMs.

    Mame32 roms download featuring new version Mame32 v103b

    Also waiting for this one to come back with it's links to the ROMs. This is an excellent site when it is working. There is a note on the page that it will be back up in December. So bookmark it for then.
