MAME was written for PCs with lots of keys. EEMAME has a default key mapping, which is an attempt at mapping most used game keys to sensible locations on the phone. Notice that all of the keys are configurable within EEMAME, by accessing the in-game configuration menu. Just as in the PC version of MAME, you can make changes that apply to all games, or for only a specific game.

When you run a game for the first time, EEMAME asks you to type "OK" to acknowledge that you are allowed to run an emulation of the game. You can press LEFT follwed by RIGHT instead of "OK" to accept. (This works on most versions of MAME, including the original Windows version.)

The Motorola and Nokia 7710 ports also have an on-screen virtual keyboard that can be used for inserting coins, starting games, etc. On these phones, the pen can, additionally, be used as an analog joystick.


Nice description missing...

Notice that the keys on the virtual keyboard (only Motorola and Nokia 7710) can be reconfigured like any other key.
