Welcome to Gordon's MAME ROM information page
The files below are textual information lists.
They are provided to give you a better understanding of what ROMs are needs to play each game in MAME,
They also show which ROMs are added to or removed from each new release of MAME.
You will have to look else where on the web to find the actual ROM files needed to play these games.
P.S. please don't contact me to ask where you can download ROMs.

10/03/2006 So... WOW.. Another year flies by.
And what am I doing, well... not making these lists any more, that is for sure, with programs like ClrMamePro out there doing a good job of keeping ROMs correct, hand fixing the changes really is not something I have time for any more.
So where does that leave me and this web site.
Well...
As good as I think ClrMamePro is, I don't use it very much for a couple of good reasons.
The main one is that is it can only process one DAT at a time. And with things like TOSEC out there with 655 sets I don't have time to process each of those, and TIM is OK, but only does tosec....
So... What do you do..... In my case, I have written my own ROM managing tool. That takes as many dats as you want to set it up with, using what every directory structure you want, and it takes care of the rest.
Does this sound cool? I am thinking about cleaning it up, and posting it on here, to see what people make of it.
It it written in VB6.0 and starts by sucking all of the ClrMamePro Dats into an Access Database. (Yes I know.. Microsoft all the way.)
It then scans the files against the access database.
So Please post to me any comments at gjefferyes@hotmail.com and set the subject to Multi Dat Tool, so that I can filter these out from all the rest of the junk I get to that email address.

PLAYER 1 INSERT COIN TO CONTINUE

ok so I am working on a balance, I figure updating these lists once in a while does not hurt any. So here are the lists for 0.59, I will probably keep updating, just give me a day or two to get them done.

OK, that said, look at the size of this update file, lets call this the NEO-GEO renaming release.
21/03/2002

GAME OVER

life is not an arcade game, and I need to spend more time with my family. Goodbye for now.
05/02/2002Another new MAME :o)

One new thing about the lists is that I have now fixed the games that have BIOS files to display correctly.
01/11/2001The Long wait it over. :o) MAME 0.56 lists are ready for downloading.
17/09/2001MAME 0.55 lists are ready for downloading.
11/09/2001This is a terrible day, My heart goes out to all those that are and will be effected by these tragic events.
25/08/2001Go have fun with the broken MAME release 0.54. OK so MAMEDEV are pulling the CPU cores around a bit, it will all be for the good in the end.
Good things will come to those who wait.
14/08/2001Well here we are: the lists for MAME 0.53 are ready to download, and as well as a big version number jump, this is an even bigger update, this is the biggest diff file yet with 90 new games/clones being added!! Have fun :o)

25/02/2001I am just starting to get everything back together after my move, so here are the lists for MAME 0.37 beta 12. (A bit late I know, are we all having fun with CPS2 now?, and yes I know I still need to do some work on the lists to get the playchoice and CVS games listed a little better)
01/02/2001WOW Cool. It started RAINE'ing again. I would like to do the lists for the new release, but I am just about to move house and my computers are in bits and packed away, I will get the lists done but probably not for another 2 weeks or so. (I hope I don't miss the next MAME release to.)
17/01/2001Here for your viewing pleasure is a graph showing how MAME has grown over the years.
16/01/2001Welcome to 2001 and have fun with MAME 0.37 Beta 11, its another big big update. The list are all ready to go.
06/12/2000MAME 0.37 Beta 10 is here. I think I need to do a bit more work with my list generators now that there are 3 grouped games types: NeoGeo, Playchoice and CVS. Neogeo works fine as the code was written to work with these but the playchoice and CVS games are not displayed together very well right now.
09/11/2000Better late than never... The lists for MAME 0.37 Beta 9 are done.
03/10/2000MAME 0.37 Beta 8 lists are ready for download. The bad ROM list will follow later.
06/09/2000The bad ROM list form MAME 0.37 beta 7 is done, and it is only a day late this time :o)
05/09/2000MAME 0.37 Beta 7 is out.. and it is the 100th public MAME release!!!!!! (Well done MAME team). The play choice 10 ROMs are not listed very well right now. I will work on sorting that out in the next couple of days. and update the lists again after that.
26/08/2000I got the MAME 0.37 beta 6 bad ROM dump list done. :o) go get it.
20/08/2000MAME 0.37 Beta 6 is here!!!!!! and my only comment about this release is ...PROMS.... Go get the lists... PS. I have not forgotten about the RAINE lists I will also get them finished off soon.
20/08/2000Hi, a very quick update, as right now I am very drunk, here is the diff list for the new Raine 20000819 release, I will put up the rest of the lists in the morning when I am not seeing double of everything on this PC screen :o) and it is 2.00am right now, so Good night.
09/08/2000Well, as soon as I get back up to date with the RAINE releases, another one comes along, so the ROM lists for RAINE release 20000809 are now done, go down past the MAME lists and grab them.
08/08/2000OK this one really is a bit late, but I just got around to doing the lists from the RAINE release 20000725, the lists are down after the MAME lists
04/08/2000I guy by the name of Dave Krueger has sent me a bad ROM list for 0.37 beta 5, I have had a quick look through it and it looks OK, so I have added it below. Thanks Dave
(If anybody does find any problems let me know:o)
01/08/2000Are you a good Web programmer?? are you looking for a job?? do you live in the London (England) Area?? do you want to work for a new web company?? (A web company that actually has a business plan that makes money!!). If so send me (GordonJ) an email with some info about yourself.. Thanks
29/07/2000OK a little late but here they are... The lists for MAME 0.37 Beta 5 and what a big update it is the game count has jumped from 2157 in beta 4 to 2240 in beta 5 !!!!, (bad ROM list will follow)
17/06/2000I just got back up to date with the bad ROM lists. First I did the bad ROM list for 0.37 Beta 3 and then very quickly did the list for 0.37 Beta 4. Why was it so quick??? well there was no change at all in the bad ROM list between the two versions, so the only difference between the two files is where they say Beta 3 and Beta 4 in the title on the very first line. :o)
16/06/2000MAME 37 beta 4 is here, and this time I was around at home ready for it:o) go get the lists, OK so I will try and get the bad ROM list done for this release
11/06/2000I have just updated the Raine lists for Unofficial Raine release 0.28h
27/05/2000Here is a new list for you good people to play with:o)
It is the MAME 0.37B3 diff list in ROMCENTER format, containing just the ROMs that are new to 0.37B3. Load this data file into ROM center, point ROM center at any empty directory and then start adding in those new ROMs. This could be really useful for any of you ROM hosting sites opps out there to have a 37b3 directory with JUST the new 37b3 ROMs in it. If anybody has any comments on this DAT file, or finds any problems with it please let me know. (Have a look at this Text Diff file to see which ROMs it includes.)
27/05/2000MAME 0.37 beta 3 lists are done. The diff list is not as big as the 0.37B2 release but the 0.37B3 release has (by my count) 43 new games added!!! (Normal story with Bad ROMs list, I should get it finished by tomorrow, or Monday)
11/05/2000Mad bit of trivia for the day (again): MAME 0.37 beta 2 is the 95th released version of MAME. This should mean that MAME 0.37 beta 7 will be the 100th public release of MAME!!! (Good going MAME team.)
08/05/2000Mad bit of trivia for the day: if you count up the number of ROMs used in every released version of MAME and add these totals all together you get a grand total of over 1,200,000 ROMs!!!
07/05/2000OK so I did not get the bad ROM list finished last night, but it is done now.
06/05/2000MAME 37 Beta 2 is with us. :o) (Just doing the bad ROM list now.)
24/04/2000Just got around to getting the RAINE 0.28g lists done, get them from the RAINE section below.
Also thanks to Dave K. as he sent me the bad ROM list for 0.37 Beta 1 so I have just got around to posting it.
11/04/2000WOW, looks like it has been raine'ing a little. It may well be just a small passing shower, but it is cool to see it again. :o), I will get the lists updated later.
07/04/2000I got a machine back together and so here are the 37 beta 1 lists.
06/04/2000Well Hi everyone, here we go again, let the next beta round commence. My only problem right now is that I took the release of 36 final as a chance to back up my machine, clear it right down and while I am at it install a new processor and mother board, the only problem is that I have not finished yet :o( , So, I will try and get something up and running this weekend and get the lists for 37 beta 1 done then. (Normal service should resume sometime after that :o)
23/03/2000I just checked and found that the badrom list is identical for 0.36rc2 and 0.36 final, so the list has now been updated for 0.36 (well,actually, I just changed the title on the badrom list to 0.36 final :o)
22/03/2000All the lists are now done for MAME 36 Final (Other than the bad dump list, this will get done tomorrow.) Enjoy.
22/03/2000I missed it again :o( MAME 36 Final!!!!!! I will get the lists done when I get home from work this evening.
13/03/2000I got them done:o) MAME 0.36 Release Candidate 2 lists ready for download.(I have even managed to complete the badrom list)
13/03/2000DOH, looks like I missed RC2 last night, I will get the lists done when I get home from work this evening. They should be online sometime before 8.00pm GMT (I might even try and get the bad ROM list done today as well :o)
04/03/2000After being pushed along just a little, the RC1 bad ROMs list is now ready for download.
(Happy now Steve? :o)
26/02/2000MAME 0.36 Release Candidate 1 lists are done, (Other than the bad ROM list, I will do this one next). Also here is a list of the games/ROMs that have now been removed from MAME :o(
17/02/2000I have added a new section about the BBC Micro Driver I am adding to MESS. Go take a look here.
07/02/2000Thanks go out to Dave Krueger for his comments and the new logo. (Nice one.)
05/02/2000Only a bit late this time. Been working late again. :( anyway here are the lists for MAME 36 beta 16, and WOW exactly 2000 games!!!
Also !Happy Birthday MAME! 3 years Today.
(MAME 0.1 Released 5 Feb 1997)
03/02/2000Well. Hmmm. Thanks for the big response about the BBC driver. :o(Like know body at all responded.) Anyway, the 6502, keyboard and sound are now complete. Small problem still with the 6522's and lots more work to do with the graphics, anybody know about disc drive emulation?
26/01/2000Hi, I am trying to add a BBC Micro driver to MESS, if anybody else would like to help the effort along, please get in contact with me.
I have the core working and am now making a start on the graphics, then I need to work on the system VIA (6522,Keyboard and stuff). I have made a working BBC micro emulator in 'C' so I know enough about the BBC itself, I would just like help getting it working well in MESS.
For more info on the BBC micro take a look at The BBC Lives! pages.
23/01/2000OK I'll admit it, I am now very confused. (About what?? I here you ask)
RAINE, so first thing this morning I checked the web and found that RAINE 0.28a had been release. No problem, 14 new games added, and was sorry to hear that this may be the last release. So I was just making the new lists for 0.28a when I check back round again and found RAINE 0.28f, this is a bit soon for another release (I thought) so I started doing the lists for that, and BAM, hmmm. This release looks like it has another 68 games added!!!!!!!! Make of it all what you will. Go get the lists from the RAINE section just below the MAME section on this page. (It looks like all the drivers in development have been enabled in this release, the games may well not be working.)
22/01/2000The MAME ROM lists for MAME version 0.36 beta 15 are now done, the bad ROM list will follow later.
(The bad ROM list is now also complete. :o)
20/01/2000I finally got the BAD ROM list for MAME version 0.36 beta 14 done, scroll down a bit and go get it. :o)
11/01/2000The MAME ROM lists for MAME version 0.36 beta 14 are now done, go get those ROMs :o)
06/01/2000MAME ROM INFO is one year old today, I made the first lists while on holiday in Scotland last Christmas (version 0.34 RC 1). I got home and put them online on my own service provider, but very soon became to big for that, so thanks to Atila of Retrogames the pages have been living here ever since. I am very happy that you people have found this page worth visiting 150,000 times in the last year. Take a look at this link to see how MAME is growing.
