About Arcade Games Emulator

Classical Arcade Games Emulator, sport over 8000 different romsets.

Arcade Games Emulator supported by original MAME 0.139.

Copy or move your 0.139 MAME zipped ROMs under '/ROMs/ArcadeEmu/roms' directory! And play games.

Please, try to understand that that with that amount of games, some will run better than others and some might not even run with MAME4droid (0.139u1).

Please, don't email me asking for a specific game to run.

Tips to help performance: Activate GL mode, use lower quality sound or switch it off. Disable stick and buttons animations and disable smooth scaling also.

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

MAME4droid (0.139u1) uses only '0.139' romset.
