I saw an iCade in Myers Brisbane City, but it had a ludicrous price on it.

Btw, iMame is actually up on the iPad app store this morning I noticed.

Yes. Amazon Export sales ship them. I bought one ... am hopeless. :(

They are $150 over here.

Mame4droid is the android version, they use the same core code base. Pretty good emulator, runs most games flawlessly on my galaxy s2, the only pain is you need to get the right romsets but you'll find a few torrents around that have complete compatible roms.

The project code/web page.
http://code.google.com/p/imame4all/

Wonder how long until they pull it from the app stores.

The emulator is rad. CRT and scanline filters FTW! :up:

Cardsy, is it possible to use Wiimotes on ipads that are not jailbroken? If so, how?

It's gone. I mean, it's not like it was available there for an entire day or two or anything.

Merry Christmas.

Aemula Oldies is out now, free, which is another version of iDOS. Don't know if this is likely to get pulled as well, but I reckon it may just be as hackable as the old one, as someone posting in the Touch Arcade comments mentions they got Star Control running on it!!!11

Edit: Looks like anything <1.44mb can be run on it. No idea on sound card support, but it seems that the games included aren't configured to use Adlib or Adlib support just isn't there.

Best. Christmas. Evar! :up:

iMAME supports the icontrolpad as well.

Pricey and sold out anyway by the looks of things.

Great little travel console now the iPad!

In other news my iCade has left the US and should be here on 29 December. :up:

It's pretty amazing. Tempted to get the icade when I'm in the us, a lot cheaper. Not sure how much I'd actually use it though...

That's some consolation for selfish then Megs. :up:

Mech, it's probably easier to grab an iCade from Amazon, apparently the box is pretty hefty despite the fact that it's flat-packed.

Will post impressions when mine arrives. :nana:

iCade get!

This thing is fantastic! Takes 10mins to allen key together. Nice clicky joystick, buttons aren't as nice as those on my SF4 Tournament Edition Stick, but feel like they'll stand up to some serious punishment. Feels like an arcade machine you'd find in your local fish and chip joint, except scaled down (obviously).

iMame lets you play in full screen with the iCade (rad in portrait for shmups), and there is a lip on the front of the cab if you want to lay the screen horizontally for beat-em ups etc.

It looks rad as well, even without the iPad in it!

Love it. Was $90 including express courier shipping from Amazon and got here in 6 days, despite the Christmas period.

Cardsy gives it the Carve thumbs up! :up:

Fuck, I just had a thought that if you couldn't get/didn't have an iPad, you could just as easily quasi-mount a little LCD in there and hook it up to an oldish laptop for a similar effect, given that the controls are Bluetooth. Does it require power at all for the controls?

It uses 2 AA batteries for Bluetooth or you can connect a 5v power supply (not included).

You can use it with Android tabs as well so if you can get one cheap ... that would be perfect.

I am still sore about missing out on iMame.

How'd you manage that? It was in the store for a relatively long time.

If it helps selfish, I downloaded it but will probably never use it.

Sure, I'm jailbroken so it's not *specifically* related to this thread (and that's iFBA, not MAME) but still... fucking nuts. My next plans are to make the joystick multi-platform and put some flipper buttons either side :)

Already replaced the crappy switches in it with proper cherry ones and it made a hell of a difference.

I'm not even sore about this any more. But can you explain what's going on? Is it a bluetooth arcade stick with a slot to put your iPad in?
