MAME x Android - How hard is to port it?
03/16/17 02:08 PM


NOTE: I'm not doing a request here, I just want to better understand the situation.

Since MAME aims to be a multi-platform emulator and having a Linux port, how hard would it be to make an Android port? Does it require way too much source code changes? What is the bottleneck here?

In the past, it was an obvious answer, since the most part of Android devices didn't have a fraction of the power needed to run MAME at a decent speed. Nowadays, things are starting to change and we now have portable devices and other kind of Android devices which are much more powerful, and these devices are being improved everyday, so as Android. And it's visible that Android won't die soon. So, what is needed to compile an Android port?
