ROMs & Emulators

This post is the hard work of MidnightBliss, but feel free to add any Emulator/ROM links you may know of in a separate post. Also, feel free to give advice or chat about this subject in this thread. Hopefully, this will help draw new members, as well!

-About MAME- (taken from
In computer games, MAME is an acronym for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. According to the official MAME website (, the first official MAME release (0.1) was released on February 5 1997 by Nicola Salmoria. MAME tries to faithfully emulate as many different arcade machines and games as possible, and has been ported to many different platforms. The X11 port for UNIX-like systems is called XMAME.

MAME's purpose is to preserve gaming history, and to stop vintage games from being lost or forgotten. As of version 0.93 (actually the 137th proper release), released February 27, 2005, MAME now supports 3061 unique games and 5524 actual ROMsets (each game may just have the original or have one or more clones as well - see below) and is growing all the time. However, not all of the games in MAME are playable, about 680 ROMsets are marked as not working in the current version.

Hey, Morrigan--if you feel this belongs more in the games category, move it, or let me know and I'll shift it around myself. And if there's any other stuff you want copied over from the old Castle, please let me know. :)

...Slightly edited, as Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, due to the difficult Naomi software used in its programming, was not emulated then, and isn't to this day. o_O
