Download: UNOFFICIAL - (MAME0.78) RetroArch Standalone Emu.pkg

To quote: For best performance you should use the MAME romset 0.78. I have tested using lower romsets such as 0.37b5 and that romset worked well, but again for best performance and compatibility you should use 0.78 MAME romset. There are some things to be aware of that i have outlined below. As this is still an experimental core and could have some issues not discovered yet.

Basic Usage:

  • MAME romset 0.78 is required for best performance.
  • At first screen of MAME agreement when ask to type OK, Move Left Stick - Left to Right to signal "OK"
  • R3 will access the RetroArch Main Menu.
  • R2 will access the MAME Menu options.
  • Select in game will add credits to the game.

Notes:

  • Core is based on v0.9.8 of RetroArch (not the current 0.9.9).
  • This is an Experimental Core for the PS3 from Libretro Code Re-depository...

 

FarSight: The Pinball Arcade Gets Terminator 2 Table on Tuesday

29w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King announced today that the Pinball Arcade is getting a Terminator 2 table on Tuesday.

Below are the details, to quote: Hey there, Playstation gamers! It's been an exciting time for us in bringing pinball table recreations to everyone on PS3 and Vita!

Over the month of September, we've released four classic pinball tables in two packs; Champion Pub, Whirlwind, Flight 2000, and Goin' Nuts. Now, thanks to our amazing supporters and a successful Kickstarter campaign back in July, we'll release Terminator 2: Judgment Day on PSN this Tuesday, as well!

PSN users, are you ready for Judgment Day? This table was released by Williams in 1991 and is unquestionably one of the greatest pinball tables of all time.

It was designed by the legendary Steve Ritchie (who also designed Firepower, Black Knight, High Speed, and Star Trek: The Next Generation). T2 was the first game by Williams to use a dot-matrix display. The table was also the first game to feature a video mode and a swing out cannon that can be fired by the player. It's one of our favorite tables ever!

We hope everyone's been enjoying the releases so far! Also, for those confident in their pinball skills and want to show it, we've begun introducing Tiered Tournaments...
