    PS3 RetroArch MAME 0.78 Beta is Released

    STLcardsWS of PSX-Scene has leaked released a test build of the RetroArch PS3 MAME emulator. He claims that he has in his possession a few different test versions of the emulator, that were unofficial mods for the RetroXMB project, and thought he would release one of them to the public. Well, well, isn't the PS3 scene full of beta testers that leak what they are testing. I thought that is wasn't position of the beta tester to release what has been intrusted to them.

    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.

    • 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. (link)
    • This is an Unofficial release Please DO NOT BUG official RetroArch developer of any problems.
    • Custom RetroArch Main Menu Wood Background Added in place of default RetroArch menu.

    Known Bugs:
    • When accessing MAME settings (R2 button) settings will not save for next boot
    • Save / Load States will not work on a few titles. (mainly Midway titles)
    • On rare occasion Some RetroArch Main Menu options will not work, after switching many games. A restart of the app will correct this

    • RetroArch Developers: Squarepusher , Maister
    • Libretro Contributors: View the list of many contributors here.
    • RetroXMB Developer: doobz
    • Artwork: Sandungas (PIC1) & STLcardsWS (Custom Wood Main Menu)

    This is a standalone emulator, RetroArch or RetroXMB is not needed, just install the package.
