    Read nakata6790 post page 7, he made a good summary. You'll find which games are supported and also a FBA compat file. A full Mame2003 would be too large.
    Wii Arcade emulators aren't so bad as someone said in another thread, FBA has a lot of games running fullspeed. If you combine with the 3 mame versions, that's a thousand playable games.
    There's also Mame2003-Plus, it has some improved/added drivers : https://raw.githubusercontent.com/arcadez/-mame2003-plus-libretro/c00b9b78f9addc509ffc4c19ff6e6768594e0a94/whatsnew.txt

    I'm not sure to understand, what is limited? You can read page 7 of this thread and the attached file right? Anyway : FBA compat file.

    thanks :) I was clicking on his name I didn't realize it was the page 7 of this topic lol

    I look at the list and it say xmen is working, however, when I run it the sound is in slow motion, any idea why ? I use Retroarch 1.7.1

    I dont see spiderman or captain america and the avengers in the list or Golden Axe, does that mean it is not supported ?

    Someone posted mame2003 builds recently. There's a sega32 dol (spiderman...). Some games might be slow, it's a late and imperfect driver even on PC. This website is great to see Mame progress and game's details : http://www.progettoemma.net/

    First, are you able to compile a full build? What are the errors you have?
    You'll find an itech32 Makefile.common and driver.c in the attached archive. You have to alter both files for other drivers.

    A lot, I am not familiar with linux so I dont have the right setup to compile it properly. Can you send me a zip of the folder ready to compile ? then I can play with it and add/remove the games I want :) If I understand right, to add/remove a game I just need to alter makefile.common and driver.c ?

    for now I use a .dol of mame 2003 I found on gbatemp, but everytime I load the core, retroarch.cfg become crazy and the retroarch menu change, it is possible that .doll is based on old version of retroarch ? if so, how can I build a mame 2003 version with the lastest retroarch release ? I use 1.7.1 ..

    thanks for your help :)

    Yes, you only need to modify those 2 files. Just add CPU/Audio and driver source files to Makefile. And the game's names in drivers.c.

    Playing with different Retroarch versions can cause issue... What you can do is using a custom .cfg.

    ok thanks :) a custom cfg ? how can I do that ?

    but does my thinking is right ? there is a way to compile mame 2003 to work natively with last retroarch version 1.7.1 ? so it use the same cfg version file ?

    Search and replace retroarch.cfg occurences in configuration.c etc. I know some might hex edit the dol directly.

    If you're using the same Retroarch version for every cores there shouldn't be problem with cfg file.

    If I follow theses instructions: https://docs.libretro.com/compilation/wii/

    my new mame 2003 core will be renamed retroarch_wii.dol so I just have to rename it something like retroarch_mame2003_wii.dol and voilà ? :)

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I think I can easly compile retroarch under windows if I follow the wiki but I still dont get how to compile the mame core ? do I need linux to compile it ?

    thanks for your help :)

    Place mame2003_libretro_wii.a (the cores are static libs, '.a' files) in the dist-scripts folder and run the './dist-cores.sh wii' command or the make commands manually.
    If you managed to compile under windows you don't need Linux. It may be easier though.
