Melange is a BREW wrapper (emulator) for Android. Filesystem implementation is written in C++ and the rest is in C. While the core emulator is free and open-source, it relies on proprietary components from Qualcomm, the creators of BREW.

Overview[edit]

As BREW and Android share the ARM architecture, Melange only has to translate specific calls, providing increased performance compared to a virtual machine or emulator.

It can run many 2D and 3D BREW games that don't require OpenGL or some other APIs. As such, some KTF and KDDI BREW titles work but have trouble properly rendering fonts, and no Zeebo games are currently supported since they all require OpenGL. The emulator is still in early development.

Compatibility list[edit]

See "'Melange compatibility list"'

How to use[edit]

Game path[edit]

To use, you need to put game file in the /sdcard/MelangeBREW/ folder,

place manifest files (.mif) in mif/<game_name>.mif and application resources (folder) in mod/<game_name>.

Screen resolution[edit]

Create a breConfig.toml file under the path /MelangeBREW/sys/

Downloaded BREW apps are tied to an individual handset via a digital signature, making piracy or sideloading difficult if not impossible. However, some devices can run backups and pirated apps, which are much rarer and harder to find than ones for J2ME. Many European and American games have been dumped, but most are undumped as of yet. There are collections of European, American, Korean and few Japanese titles, but not Chinese ones.
