Wolfmame on Android and/or Raspberry

Hi friends,

can someone tell me if there is a version of WolfMame that is compatible with Android and/or Raspberry?

Thanks in advance.

MAME does target Android, but it is not all that useful, in that it lacks any sort of touch screen support.

I think MAME is buildable on a Pi, although the performance is not likely to be all that great. I'd expect it to take a while to build also, unless you do a cross-build on a PC.

You are largely on your own in attempting to build on or for these platforms.

I recall having some MAME for Android version which actually had touchscreen buttons support.
But I uninstalled it since there were so few games which are even close playable without actual physical buttons/joy. Star Wars vector graphics arcade game on a touchscreen was sort of amusingly absurd experience though, so maybe I shouldn't have uninstalled it...
