I always thought that the number 1 emulator was MAME.

How come there has been no new MAME releases for the PSP in months? I tried the different versions available, and they are all pretty crap, unpolished and unoptimized.

They seen to have problems running even simple games well e.g. Starforce (released in 1984 I believe).

Is anyone working on this?

Yea, it's weird. It's like there was this big rush to get out emulators at the start of 2005, and then nothing.....

The GP2X already has a decent MAME emulator:


Why not the PSP ?

The GP2X version was a straight port from the GP32 version plus some extras. That's why the GP2X has it so early. It is also based on the 0.34 version.
