September 27, 2013 // 8:44 pm - Following up on the previous RetroXMB update, today an unofficial RetroArch MAME 0.78 Standalone Emulator PS3 PKG is available for those interested.

Download: UNOFFICIAL - (MAME0.78) RetroArch Standalone Emu.pkg

To quote: 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.

Notes:

  • 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 (github.com/libretro/mame2003-libretro).
  • 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)

Credits:

  • RetroArch Developers: Squarepusher , Maister
  • Libretro Contributors: View the list of many contributors here (github.com/libretro?tab=members).
  • RetroXMB Developer: doobz
  • Artwork: Sandungas (PIC1) & STLcardsWS (Custom Wood Main Menu)

Finally, from Grim Doe on the M.A.M.E Debugger:

Using MAME Debugger an Playing with (Street Fighter 2 CE) sorry I have Been MIA, just not much time that I use to have. Anyways here is a nice little trick to do just to test out the ROM you are modding (make sure you already have a copy of the ROM your yesting your modding on):




1st. Start M.A.M.E & Your Game in Debug Mode
2nd. Go to your ROM Folder decompress the Zip file of the Game your playing
3rd. Modded it, Zip it back up,
4th. In the Debugger do a Hard Restart and Test out your Work.

Cool... i'm looking to mod my ps3 and the main reason is so i can play Arcade games, mainly 2d fighters from capcom and snk all on one system with a nice front end.

I'd love it if someone could direct me to a comprehensive tutorial on what files need to go where on the internal hhd of the ps3.

Also... i've noticed that a few emulators within retroarch require bios files and or accompanying files like the mame roms.

If anyone reads this could they get back to me with a link to a vid or a complete guide as i'm having trouble finding one.

Thanks

Also... are there ways to change the front end or do you have to stick with the standard one?
