MAME Arcade Game Fun With a pcDuino

This tutorial was adapted from Ben’s blog: MAME Arcade Game fun with a raspberry pi.


It turns out that the same steps used to install MAME can be used to install MAME on a pcDuino.

$cd ~
$sudo wget
$sudo dpkg -i advancemame-raspberrypi_1-1_armhf.deb

If etch the software dependencies needed by AdvanceMAME that Moebius is missing.

$sudo apt-get -y install libsdl1.2debian libfreetype6

Run AdvanceMAME for the first time.


Sample ROM:

MAME by its own has not much usage. We need to download ROM from

The following is an example:

$cd /usr/local/share/advance/rom/
$sudo wget -U Firefox
$advmame victory

    Does this work good enouph to make a setup capable of being put into an arcade game cabinet to make an inexpensive MAME arcade game system?

    It looks rather cool. I’d like to try it out.

    I have tried it but seems too slow for most of games (even using lower resolution). Someone has any ideas for correct that?
