Our MAME ROMs section was at 0.164 for a while so it was definitely time for an update. MAME 0.184 just came out a few days ago. The biggest change however is that we've now moved from split MAME sets to non-merged MAME sets. What does that mean?
Well, to put it simply, you no longer need to get a parent ROM for any MAME title that you download. All you need to do is get the rom and everything (parent roms, bios files, etc.) will be included in the file! The only exception to this of course are CHDs. If you need a CHD for a particular game then you'll need to get that separately since those can run to several gigabytes in size.
However, most of our MAME ROMs will now be directly playable with a single download. So go right ahead, fire up the new MAME and enjoy some arcade classics without any additional complications!
