the beauties of MAME
is that you can play your favourite games where-every there is a PC. All you
need to do is stick in a CD into the drive and away you go. Some things to
watch is that it?s probably best to use the Windows version of MAME called MAME32. This has a GUI
front-end and is very easy to use. Some of the latest versions of MAME32 saves some entries
to the registry so be careful.
This is where the MAME GAME-CARD comes in. I made a list of my all time favourites games that I like to play along with the art files that go along with the games (the Marquee, Adverts for the games, etc). I then got hold of some CD-R's that are the same size as a business card. I then burnt the MAME32 program files, and the ROM images along with the art-files on to the CD. I can now carry the CD in my wallet and stick it in any PC with a CD drive and play the games.
The games that I have on the MAME Game-Card are:-
Mr Do's Castle
Ghouls 'n' Ghosts
Ghost 'n' Goblins
Roc 'n' Rope
Street Fighter II
Track and Field
Now these are what I consider some of the best Arcade games every created, and the complete size on CD with the MAME32 program to run them is 22MB. That's it, nothing more and nothing less! It has been ZIPíd up to make the download less painful, and thatís 16MB.
36 games equal 36 Rom images. To run these on your computer (and to keep in the law), you will need to own the original PCB ?
THIS I DO??
Please make sure you also own the original PCB?s before you download the stuff.
