Wich version of MAME roms pack for AM?
« on: August 24, 2022, 10:20:15 AM »
Hello,

I don't know wich MAME roms pack to download for AM.
I don't want the lastest and full pack because in my game station I have also the neogeo roms.
I'm looking for a simple roms pack (maybe the version 0.236?) with the medias(snaps and wheel).

Thank you for your time and help!!!
Have a nice day

It does not matter what rom versions you use, AM is just a front end it loads up which ever emulator you tell it to.

So you just need to worry about what MAME version and rom sets you are using.

It depends on your hardware.

If a full newer PC, then the latest version (0.246).

If a Raspberry Pi maybe, MAME 2000 (0.37b5) or MAME 2003 (0.78).

The important thing is that you get the ROM version for the MAME version you are using. Otherwise some games won't work.

Thank you for your response.

In fact I don't speak about the emulator but the rom set.



There is a lot of version. I have already the neogeo roms so I'm looking for a more basic version of a rom set. The better way is a light rom set with all the media (wheel and snap)

Thank you and have a great day

Tom,

It is never a good thing to link to rom websites as emulation is a very grey area between legal and illegal. You are literally bordering on piracy for most of emulation, especially following that link.

The N company have shut down a lot of websites that contain their copyrighted material, a few clicks and you can see N roms available for download.

A website such as this even though it is just a front end can potentially be shut down, or fined for members sharing links to what they will class as pirated material.

Any material that is still making money their copyright will be upheld.

Regards

Mark

Mark,

Thank you for your response and sorry for the link. I deleted it from my post.

In fact it's hard for me to match my mame roms with the media with fatmatch because the mame's names roms are less long
