    I remember that I solved it last year but can't remember how,
    The problem is most of my ROMs don't show up in MAME but if I select them in list of games that are not available (the list that shows the games that I dont have), it runs!

    any solution?

    for archives:
    Problem solved by adding neogeo.zip to ROM folder, now metal slugs show up in MAME32's menu.

    According to wikipedia there are 38 BIOS Roms in Mame 0.126, you need them to run for example Neo Geo game, PSX based arcade machine (the game that are emulated by zinc) or STV (saturn based).
    I'm at work and i can give you a list (some site are blocked) but if you google it, you will find them easily.

    Thanks Jon, I thought like that but since my problem was with just Metal Slugs and they are NeoGeo games, just its BIOS sufficed.

    In the future, check MAWS for file dependencies. It lists out all the files necessary to run a game.
