I had someone mod my xbox in order to play the Mame Arcade Roms and he pre-loaded about 100 on there. I have found several sites with the zipped roms and I put them in my Rom Directory on my xbox and none of them will work when I run them. Can someone please tell me what to do or where to find or purchase more arcade roms. I know not all roms will work but there has got to be more out there.


Please Help!

Thanks,

Dustin

What error are you getting? What rom are you trying to load? More information would help smile.gif

MAME supports over 4000 arcade romsets. Yes there are more out there. But you're not going to find links to them here.

Well I get a lot of loading errors. The homemade Roms seem to work but alot of the others don't work I have tried about 30 different ones. I have typed a search for arcade roms on the internet and you know most of them are dead end links or porn. Any help getting me started on finding a site that has working roms would help.

Here is my email:dustsuz@bellsouth.net

THanks for all your help..

You need to do some reading up on MAME. It will help.

try this link first.

Some of the concepts you need to grasp are you need to have parent roms to run clones, you need to make sure your romsets are valid for the version of MAME you're using (use a romchecker), and you need certain bios files to run certain romsets.

You need to be more specific with the loading errors. Do you run out of memory? Does the loading error say that you're missing roms? That you have bad crcs?

I can't help you with roms, sorry.
