MAME 0.125: No Coins Necessary

June 8, 2013

A new MAME emulator for the PS3 makes its way to the scene. Developer Ole who also brought the E-UAE  Amiga emulator to the PS3 has released a v0.125 port of MAME.  This emulator is still in development and this is considered a “Preview Release” with more fixes and additions to come later from the developer. You should use the v0.125 romset. I would not recommenced using a higher romset. Lower ones may work but for best performance one should use 0.125 romset for this MAME port. For all the details take a peek at the ReadMe file that is included below.
