Gaming Your Way

May contain nuts.

Best thing ever. Ever.

Found this via the roundabout route of 8bitRocket and Rich's site at photonStorm.

Mame has been ported to Flash. The daddy of all emulators is running with a healthy list of games. They lack sound, but that's always going to be the way as Flash's sound control is just one step up on a Spectrums, but it's not the end of the world ( For all the rose tinted spectacles in the world, arcade sound was never that great. Apart from Defender of course ).

Please please check out FMame and be blown away playing Commando ( Not a port, actual real 100% the same Commando ) in your browser.

    Great ain't it? :) They seem to have updated it since I last tried it, and it's running quite a bit faster now in certain games.

    Hopefully with Flash 10 they'll be able to handle the sound generation required to manage that part. Here's hoping :)

    True, sound would be sweet and hopefully possible in F10 without it hurting the performance ( One day Adobe will finally licence a mod player and everyone's sound bitching will be done ).

    The coolest thing is though, if they ever catch up to the current build of mame, you could drop that on your site and have 3000+ games there. A portal in Flash :)
