Following on from yesterdays post < https://stiggyblog.wordpress.com/2013/01/26/mame-back-in-the-apple-app-store/ > I’ve been playing around this morning to see if I can side load Mame roms into the Gridlee app on my iPad.
I’ve used I-Funbox to browse to the app/documents/rom folder and dropped a couple of zipped roms from my iMame collection. After re-scanning the roms within the app, they all showed up on the game list. Also, no problems detected when dropping the files into this folder even though I’m running iOS 6.0.1.
Yay it seems to work! Go Frog.
I’ve added a few more roms but some appear not to work. I’m pretty sure it’s because my existing iMame rom set is quite old so I’ve since replaced them with a few examples from the .0139u1 set. This time, all appears to be working fine.
Awesome-ness – WWF Wrestlefest is now supported with this version of Mame and the iCade compatibility means I use can also use my 8-Bitty Bluetooth controller. I fear those few jobs I’d planned to do around the house might be put off for a bit 🙂
Got an iPhone/Ipad…download Gridlee on the app store right now….it probably won’t be around forever.
