A Wii port of SDLMAME has been released.

QUOTE said:
Here i have another wii-linux distribution, this time with SDLMAME inside , what will let you play all those old arcade machines. I don´t recommend to use the homebrew channel to launch the wii-linux kernel, as it has some problems with NWC24. Apart of that, to use this version of SDLMame for wii you will have to be VERY patient, as it has very high times of loading. Once the rom is loaded, it works all right (85-90% of original speed without frameskip). Here are the downloads and the and the readme for wii (you have the original documents and manual with the binaries):

Is it like the PS2 MAME that can just play really old games like Pong and Pac-Man, or could we actually play games like Cadillac and Dinosaurs or The Punisher?

If we can really play a CPS2 game, then that means we can play MvsC at least! Cant wait for loading improvements.
