    Hi, perhaps you the image can be re-sized to 2.88M and have a bit more space (for Civ1 for example).

    News about Mac version?

    • I may not publish it becouse of time constraints but actually it is pretty almost identical, if not easier. the .ima files can be read natively by any mac. Rename the .ima to .img edit the disk image and use the dd command in terminal to merge into the idosboot.dump , rename that to .im1 and the image is ready for aemula.

        But i ve read more problem about some games…was a list of working games? Or best a pack of games ready to download and put in the app folder?
        Another question…
        For keymapping a existing game? Like prince of persia…i ve some problem with ICADE, specially with the fire button ( in the virtual joy the 1 and 2 button )

        Tk s a lot!

      • Check touch arcade forums, there is some prepackaged games available for download and more tutorials. iCade controller support is available I think there but I haven’t looked into it as I don’t have an iPad or iCade but I will read up on it.

      • I updates the zip file to include files and tutorial for Mac, however I am unable to update the main tutorial here as I am away from my computer.

      • Marco says:

        The zip was idoshacker&
        Tomorrow i test all…

        Very tk s!

  3. […] las malas lenguas que al ser un emulador con juegos existe la posibilidad de utilizarlo como un simple emulador y cargarle los juegos que nosotros queramos. Descarga: App Store […]

  4. que? es posible que uso tus juegos en Aemula Oldies. solo menos que 2.88 Megabytes. no se mucho espanol o la haria un version en espanol.
