One of the best updates this week! Looking at the related threads, I wonder how the NullDC, PCSX2, and Dolphin ports for the ps3 are coming along LOL.

This weekend PlayStation 3 developer Robo Hobo has released an unofficial PS3 MAME arcade game emulator GameOS port preview of version 0.142.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

Installing:

  • 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.

Default controls:

  • 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.

Frontend: 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 [Register or Login to view links]

Paths:

Under /dev_hdd0/ROMS/mame_data

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

Under /dev_hdd0/game/MAME90000/USRDIR/data

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





Known issues:

  • 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.
