Mame Preview PS3 :) –
Absolutly great !
Unofficial MAME 0.142 PS3 GameOS port
Install the psmame package onto your jailbroken PS3 using normal means.
By default all data paths for mame are located under /dev_hdd0/ROMS/mame_data.
ROMS themselves can be placed anywhere and their location chosen with the frontend. The recommended path is /dev_hdd0/ROMS/mame.
As of right now the only defined controls are R3 to open the MAME config menu, Select for coin, and Start for starting the game.
Further control changes can be made in the MAME config menu as needed.
Up to four controllers can be used at one time.
The frontend can display screenshots of games, these should be placed in /dev_hdd0/ROMS/mame_data/snaps. You can find a full set at <http://www.progettosnaps.net/snaps_en.html>
hash: path to hash files
samples: path to samplesets
artwork: path to artwork files
ctrlr: path to controller definitions
ini: path to ini files
font: path to font files
cheat: path to cheat files
crosshair: path to crosshair files
snaps: path to screenshots for frontend
cfg: directory to save configurations
nvram: directory to save nvram contents,
memcard: directory to save memory card contents
inp: directory to save input device logs
sta: directory to save states
snap: directory to save screenshots
diff: directory to save hard drive image difference files
comments: directory to save debugger comments
When adding ROMs into your ROM dir, you must tell the frontend to rescan them. This can be done in the R3 menu.
The display currently only supports scaling by pixel aspect ratio. Future versions will support various aspect correction modes.
Changing video settings in the menu may crash MAME, they don't work anyway so don't bother.
Games which require a recompiler will not run.
Games which have high memory requirements will not run, the PS3 only has a little of 220MB of RAM available.
The default controls will need to be tweaked by the user.
Playing badlands eventually, too many roms
Here, i got it working
Make sure you put a rom in the /dev_hdd0/ROMS/mame so you can enable R3, Then you can browse to the desired directory!
thank you and looking forward to a finished build
Hi tried to run psmame and did everything as above created rom directory etc but everytime i try to run it comes up with Could not list ROM directory'
do you need multiple roms in directory should they be zipped or nor
works for me..... you have to setup this rom path with the exact uppercase and lowercase lettering, otherwise i had the same exact problem u had...... dev/hdd0/ROMS/mame and all roms must be zipped. Now its been months since mame ps3 has been updated, it ran my test rom fine which was captain america & avengers. Id like to see a version where you could choose hd shaders in 1920x1080 and 16:9 the games so they fit the whole screen..... Gonna try out some of the mortal kombat games tommorow......
