    Very good list, great work! I've never actually bothered to try so many games cause the few games I tried disappointed me so much. They were unplayable because of the high frameskip. I don't think MAME is the optimal arcade emulator solution for PSP. It would be better to port an emulator more optimized for speed than compatibility. In my opinium it's better to have an emulator that emulates only a few games at high speed than having MAME that run almost every arcade game but at very low speed.

    thats why I did this list based on the favourites pack since most games predate 1984 and are quite playable where as say the irem pack only has 2 or 3 playable games.
    oh yeah I forgot to mention that this list is minus all clones, so if you are looking for pacman, its called puckman, etc, etc.

    Smile NEED help on get MAME working

    My PSP BIOS is 1.5

    I just got MAME .96 intalled, unde \PSP\GAME\MAMEPSP
    also I made a folder called ROMS under E:\PSP\GAME\MAMEPSP\ROMS.

    I donwloaded some roms which I'm droping under ROMS.
    I got the dreaded "The Game could not be started" 800200001 error.

    Please help, Is there a procedure that I am missing here?
    What is the extension file format for the roms?
    What is a good site to download roms?

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Quick assumption do you have to have a Mame Bios in your non % folder to get the game to boot? I know Lynx and other EMU's require a bios file and others besides the eboot in the non % folder to run properly.

    phavelar - The original files are created for 1.0 I will try to get some more 1.5 versions up by tomorrow, for now here is the CP version adapted for 1.5

    Place both folders in the GAME Directory on your PSP

    OK I'm going to go through the steps to make a 1.5 capable MAME version
    since I really don't have the time at the moment to do it for all 18 versions of MAME.
    This is the "MANUAL" way to do it..I know there are a few "tools" out there
    that can do it also...but this may actually help people to understand the process.

    I will use the DE version as an example.

    Extract the contents of the archive to a "new folder"
    You should have the following contents

    In the same folder create 2 more folders:
    or if you want to hide the corrupt data:
    MDE(30 spaces)1

    Use PBP Unpacker (
    to extract the following files from the EBOOT.PBP

    [Start the program "Open" the EBOOT.PBP "Extract" the files]

    Create a folder and name it "roms"
    Delete the EBOOT.PBP file and rename the DATA.PSP file to EBOOT.PBP
    and now put the following files into either the MameDE or the MDE(30 spaces)1 folder
    roms (folder)

    Using PBP Unpacker, Select "new"
    Drag and Drop the ICON0.PNG and PARAM.SFO to there designated load spaces
    on PBP Unpacker or click on the tabs there and load them that way.
    Now click "save" and you will create another EBOOT.PBP
    Place this one in the Folder with the %

    Your 2 folders are now set, aside from adding roms and copying to your MS card
    (you can delete the ICON0.PNG and PARAM.SFO that are left over)

    btw has anyone been able to find gamelists (even if they are in Japanese)
    of what games are on which versions?
    I'm assuming some should be easy to figure out like NM and NM2 I would guess are Namco but if anyone can be more insightfull it would be very welcomed
