It’s been a while since we last heard from homebrew coder ZodTTD, but now his back to update his PlayStation and MAME arcade emulator for iPhone and iPod Touch.
I have updated psx4iphone to also support the 3.1.x series of firmwares. Included in psx4iphone v1.1.0 is a fix for a bug causing the non-scaled landscape screen to display properly. DonÂ’t expect too much difference in performance. This emulator will still require an iPhone 3gs or iPod Touch 3rd Gen to really shine. I will be working more on this emulator as I get more free time. You can download psx4iphone from the ZodTTD Repo which is built-in to Cydia via the included community sources package. This means it is also available via RockApp, Icy, etc. Brief installation instructions are provided within the package info.
I updated mame4iphone to version 1.5.0.So whatÂ’s new in this release? While you should be able to notice more performance, I didnÂ’t get to update things to the assembly CPU cores just yet. I did update it to the latest MAME4All v2.4 release by the talented Franxis. I also updated the iPhone/iPodTouch specific user interface to allow for even the entire romset to be loaded. This also fixed some bugs with some screen orientation plus scaling options to not render correctly.
There is a known issue where ROMs can not be switched mid-game. There is also no way to use save states due to the older version of MAME being used. Both of these issues occurred in v1.0.0 as well.
This should help ease the wait for my proper NeoGeo+CD emulator release, as a good amount of classic NeoGeo games are supported.
And if that wasn’t enough, Zod has also successfully modified his mame4iphone to add WiiMote support via Bluetooth using BTstack daemon. Here take a look.
