The people (At the RetroArch forums.) pissed me off about the MAME core. Saying it support MESS stuff. I never could get the GBA BIOS to load. A few others as well. Funny that the MAME64 for Windows doesn't have that issue at all. Totally BS. Anyway Arcade part is fine on the MAME core. Even though there is something is wrong with the right stick set up. I had to use the buttons for shooting to play Robotron 2084.

I don't know this is the person making the RetroArch MAME core or not. But I did report some issues.

Only using RetroArch and MAME core on the Android. I did mess with those on the Windows 10 for a test.


Windows 10 Pro 64-bit / Intel Core i5-4460 3.20 GHz / 8.00 GB RAM / AMD Radeon R9 200 Series
