Mame Emulator

I am trying to run a acarde emulator... all my other nes,snes etc etc work ...I can not get the arcade to work though... any one have any suggestions on one? right now I am trying to us Mame 1.03 ..I am trying to get NBA Jam TE to work [email protected]#!

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

sorry for the crappy explain ... I have tryed 3 different roms ...only cause I didnt have time to try more ... but everytime I tryed to run them it would tell me

error: files missing

I go them from http://www.romnation.net/srv/roms/mame/n.html

which I heard was a good site for roms etc...

Every new release of Mame the roms files get updated. The rom you have is probably good but not for the latest version of mame. If you have a bunch of roms start downgrading mame until you find a compatable version. If you dont have many roms.. find the compatable roms

Wow, really? Damn, that sucks. I've never actually used MAME, but that sounds like a huge pain in the ass. You'd think subsequent newer versions would still retain backwards compatibility with the older roms, rather than the roms having to be updated to maintain compatibility with the new versions... or having multiple versions installed and guessing at which one's needed for which particular rom.

I guess it's good I stick with my console emu's... I can at least update those to newer, more compatible/full featured versions, and not have to worry about rom's being incompatible

Yeah, it sucks... some of the smaller roms will work across all versions.. but the larger ones seem to change with every release. Thats one of the main reasons I do not jack with mame too much.
