MAME roms that don't work

Recommended Posts

I have a bunch of mame roms that don't work, is there a reason for this? Do i need an older version of the mame emulator or what, i am using the new mame32.

Are you sure that they are MAME romsets? Edited by Agozer

Older MAME games should be compatible with never versions of MAME. Although there's romset name changes sometimes....

Damn, if Mame.dk would still be around, you should have gone there and verified your romsets. :(

What do u mean don't work. Do they not work because they're in the non-working status. Or just plain don't run correctly under mame :(

When i run audit roms,they have errors. They don't work at all, a bunch of files are listed in the rom audit as to what files are messed up in each rom. I don't know if these roms change versions over time or what.

The mame roms don't work because; if they were games you had working before (in an older mame version), the rom that mame is looking for has changed - download the new version from a site that has 0.78 roms listed. You'll have to check which has become the new 'original' romset as the version will mostlikely have changed. Some Atari games have upgraded their 'Original' rom set (set 4 instead of set 3 for Gauntlet for example).

If the roms just don't work but are passed when audited, then the rom is actually from the mame work in progress (which has been integrated into regular mame versions). These are roms that will hopefully be fully supported in the future, but at the moment are non working.
:lol:
