Experimental App - MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator)

MAME allows you to play arcade games as they were originally written.

It is able to do this because it uses the original game software,

and it emulates the hardware, such as microprocessor, graphics, and sound chips.

Experimental App - MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator)

Hi Guys,

I try to port the MAME to ASUSTOR NAS - MAME ( Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. )
It integrates the following two program into one App.
MAME 0.14 & GMAMEUI 0.2.12.

AS-6 :mame_1.0.0.r2_x86-64.apk
AS-3/2:mame_1.0.0.r2_i386.apk
You can download from dropbox https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vnn8opjesvgp ... ZF1POKc7Ka

Because MAME might need the BIOS , you will need to download the BIOS
You can download it from internet ( for example : http://www.emuparadise.me/biosfiles/MAMEBIOS.rar )
Extract it to \Public ( so it will be \Public\BIOSmame133u4
When you launch the MAME in ASUSTOR Portal, you will also need to add this volume1\Public\BIOSmame133u4 as ROM folder).

When it launch , it might take time to scanning the roms.


Have fun!

William

William,

I am very excited about getting this App to work!

I was able to load the 64 bit version of the App on a 6 series Asustor. I did get one of the roms to the "OK" screen which means that MAME is working, but couldn't get the App started past this screen. I think I am having difficutly for possibly one of these two reasons:

reason 1: I have MAME .139 roms which may not work with the version of MAME used in this app. Which version of MAME was used to create this App (i.e. MAME .143)?

reason 2: I don't know if my input devise is being recognized by the App. I noticed that the input device in GMAMEUI is set to /dev/js0, which I think is a joystick. Are you been been able to get this App to work with a usb joystick or usb keyboard?

Any ideas?

Shawn

Success! I was able to get the APP working using a MAME 143 rom set.

I still need to find a working input device. I have a Bluetooth Nyko Gamepad that was able to connect to Bluetooth, but it connected as a HID keyboard rather than a gamepad. It doesn't appear that Asustor include a gamepad profile in the Bluetooth drivers. I noticed that Optaware has Bluez Bluetooth drivers that may include the gamepad profile, but don't know how to turn off Asustor Bluetooth. Anyone have any suggestions?

Also, has anyone been able to get a usb game to work on the Asustor?

Alternatively, has anyone been able to get a WiiMote driver to work with the Asustor?

Can I actually set the locations for things like samples, cabinets, etc. None of the add path buttons seem to work.

GREAT app. How about an update to the latest version?

Dear Keagy,

1. WiiMote driver to work with the Asustor?
=> This is a great idea, and I am considering to port the driver to ASUSTOR NAS.
A WiiMote support, and add Dolphin Emulator (Wii emulator) on ASUSTOR NAS will be very interesting App.

I add the support for xboxdrv on SNES9x
(http://pingus.seul.org/~grumbel/xboxdrv/)
This driver can support a lot of gamepad
I try Logitech F710 (a wireless gamepad), and it works.
The experience for wireless is much better than a keyboard/USB gamepad.
I am considering to add support for PPSSPP too
( Due to the limitation on ASUSOTR portal, it won't allow me to let two App share the same xboxdrv.
Hope ASUSTOR can fix this limitation....)

2. Mame upgrade to new version.
=>
If I have the time, I will study the new version.

Have a nice day,

William
