Arcade Emulator based on SDL Mame. At the moment it only runs Konami games, but more support will be added in later releases.

== Issues ==
* Only the ROMs on the MameDev website (http://mamedev.org/roms/) and a lot of old Konami arcade games work with this build. A way to play anything MAME supports (that the Wii can also handle) is hopefully gonna be added later. In the mean time, you can try to make a customized build of your own with a specific list of hardware. See src/mame/tiny.mak and src/mame/tiny.c for an example on how to do so.
+
* Lots of ROMs are supported, but not all of them. If you don't see the ROM in the list in the emulator, then support for that ROM isn't included. This is to keep the size of the emulator low enough to run effectively on the Wii. A list of all the ones that are can be found here: http://www.toadking.com/wiimame.txt
   −
* Only software rendering is supported. This makes playing games without using the frameskipper slow, but the auto-frameskipper feature is enabled by default. Might add GX support later to make it less choppy.
+
* Just because a ROM is supported does not mean it will run. Even games for early boards like CPS-1 can fail to run due to RAM limitations. If the emulator suddenly kicks you out to the Homebrew Channel, look in the MAME app folder (/apps/MAME) for a file called errors.txt. If it says something about failing to allocate space, then odds are the ROM can't run on the Wii. The emulator might also crash outright and leave you with a code dump if RAM runs out.
