IMPORTANT: MAME core APK separation due to License.

Starting at 3.2.0 release, Jarcade will no longer contain MAME core engine in order to be compliant with MAME license.

I'll separate all android related work from MAME core engine including UI/touch control, opengl rendering, screen preview/Cabinet, video/sound filter, file handling...etc.

There will be a separate MAME engine APK which will be open-source and free to download from Market.

What does this mean to you?

You'll need to download and install MAME APK separately.

Again, this is needed in order to continue supporting the project.
I hope you understand :)

  8. I really like this app, I will like to know if in a future update you can add vibration to the touch controls and a way to save different configuration of the positions of them. I will like to see cheats support and save states.

  9. I just bought this emulator and I love the speed and compatibility that it brings. Is there support or plan to support for the Wii controller as in some other emu's? That would be awesome. Thanks.

  11. anyone know how to reset mame controls in jarcade? typically you just delete the default.cfg file but in this case you can't...

  12. Will that mean that that it will be possible to update the core to maybe the latest MAME build? Also a question about the possibility of running on a tablet and perhaps adding the Hi-Res Artwork Bezels to really show it off? Again that would mean moving to a newer version of MAME to do that.

  13. Does Jrioni answer emails? I was doublecharged and google asked me to email him for a refund of the 2nd charge. It's been days and I have yet to hear from him.

  14. hi, for google checkout related issue, could you please contact google directly? i don't see it double charged.

    if this is still an issue, please contact me with your order number.

    This and cps2?..
    Always comes up as error..

  18. To buy, google "android market" and always choose the browser and never open with the android market app installed on your phone.

  19. jrioni is it possible to add a fps counter?
    Thanks for the updates, this is still my favorite mame emu by far. Only game that is picky for me is Alien Storm.
    Anyone knows if its possible to make After Burner work by converting it or something?

  20. Hi Jrioni, big fan and supporter of yours. I had 2 questions. Is the new mame apk will support games like killer instinct and street fighter 3rd strike? And will this apk affect my current libraries of games? Thanks for your hard work and dedication.

  21. I second that. Will we finally get to play sf3, kI and power stones??

  22. It seems pointless to post a question, seeing by the dates this developer doesn't answer questions!
