M.A.M.E. 0.183 February 22, 2017 Streaming fully supported (fullscreen + audio). You need to create a shortcut from MAME's executable, and with the right-click edit its properties. Then add a few command lines to it, and save the modifications. For example, say the shortcut locates MAME at: E:\MAME\mame64.exe - you will need to edit this part and turn into this, otherwise the emulator won't run with the app: E:\MAME\mame64.exe -video gdi -keyboardprovider dinput -keyboardprovider win32 -mouseprovider dinput

Special thanks to Vas Crabb from MAME World Central for solving this mystery.

Stella 4.7.3 November 21, 2016 Streaming fully supported (fullscreen + audio). You need to configure the TIA Filter to Zoom 4x, and the fullscreen resolution to 1368x1024. It appears that selecting OpenGL instead of "Software" will reduce the delay in the audio sync, therefore you should use this option, too Home

FCEUX 2.2.3 July 28, 2016 Streaming fully supported (fullscreen + audio). You need to enable in fullscren settings "Enter full screen mode after game is loaded", and in "Mode" use the resolution 1368 by 1024 @ 32 bpp. Also in DirectDraw select "No hardware acceleration". Don't use any other setting rather than these, otherwise either the fullscreen won't work or the emulator will run very slow in the app. HomeSourceForge

Partially supported

PC Games

The demo "Devil May Cry 4" (2008) worked in window mode (+ zoom applied), and crashed when I tried to go fullscreen. Also this demo refused to be opened from the app, you need to do it in the PC.

It is believed that most PC games are not working, or only a few (perhaps the most recent ones) are running only in window mode.

Another example of game that worked like DMC 4 was "Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition" (2013), however in this case you can't use it because it relies on a mouse and keyboard working properly (something you never have while using Microsoft Remote Desktop).

  • In the 1.4.6 version from "Megaton" I was able to make the gamepad work (only with a help from "SDL2 Gamepad Tool"), however that version has a bug that freezes the game for several seconds, randomly. And that happens while we are using in the PC, without streaming anything. For that reason, if you have another version (the last released was 1.4.9, from Steam), try it instead of this one.

"Assassin's Creed" (2007) crashes when you try to run in fullscreen mode. If it's already running in the PC (in window mode) it will appear in the app, but without audio (and the problem will continue to happen in the PC). Restarting the game in the PC will fix the problem. So unfortunatelly it's unsupported.

DOSBox worked for the game PRINCE OF PERSIA (1989), in fullscreen (you need to use the command alt + Enter in the Microsoft Remote Desktop app) + zoom (really needed), and the audio was supported, too. Duke Nukem 3D worked one time, and crashes randomly. It really seems to me this is highly unstable.

A lot more games need to be tested.

Here's a tip: for iOS, try using this app to play PC games

https://itunes.apple.com/br/app/kinoconsole-stream-pc-games/id965075144?mt=8

There are only two problems with it: a bug that turns the iPAD screen upside down when I am using it (even if rotation is locked), and a white dot/dead pixel in the upper left corner. If wasn't for these two defects (not yet addressed by the developers) I would recommend purchasing the app, because it worked with all PC games I tried so far.

O2EM 1.20 December 24, 2011 Only works in window mode, use the standard pinch-in and pinch-out gestures to zoom the emulator. I managed to make the emulator recognize my joystick for a few games by using: o2em -wsize=2 -s2=3 in the Windows command prompt, in the same folder where the O2EM.exe is. You need to type this in the PC and hit ENTER/RETURN only in the Microsoft Remote Desktop keyboard. After that hit "1" in Microsoft Remote Desktop keyboard to start playing the game. The commands -fullscreen or wsize=3 or =4, can't work properly with Microsoft Remote Desktop. The ROMs also have to use short filenames without any spaces (example: "ADVENTURES.bin" instead of "THE ADVENTURES.bin"). There's a pack available in the internet with short filenames, search for "Rene's VIDEOPAC". A few games can't be played even if they are streamed because they rely on the keyboard and/or a 2nd player. Please note this emulator is supporting Odyssey 2 games a lot better than M.A.M.E., I haven't seen any game not working properly or with graphic issues. Home
M.A.M.E. 0.183 February 22, 2017 Streaming fully supported (fullscreen + audio), for a few games. You need to create a shortcut from MAME's executable, and with the right-click edit its properties. Then add a few command lines to it, and save the modifications. For example, say the shortcut locates MAME at: E:\MAME\mame64.exe - you will need to edit this part and turn into this, otherwise the emulator won't run with the app: E:\MAME\mame64.exe -video gdi -keyboardprovider dinput -keyboardprovider win32 -mouseprovider dinput. Only a few games can be played with the gamepad (for example: Killer Bees! and Pick Axe Pete!), others are presenting bugs that prevent the game from working, or graphic issues (Popeye, Q-Bert, Frogger...). And others can't be played because they rely on the keyboard and/or a 2nd player. I also had to put the BIOS o2bios.rom + all ROMs inside the file odyssey2.zip in MAME's rom folder Home
