    hey guys kiafazool here
    i have the romset of 37b and all games work

    but they were missing the original sonic, megaman, and mario

    so i downloaded them seperately
    and added them to MAME/roms
    but i cant see them on any list

    they are the original games and im pretty sure they will work when street fighter can work
    but i cant find them on the lists'

    can anyone help me?

    Wow.

    Okay, first of all, the NES Mario and Megaman games, and the Genesis Sonics are NOT arcade games! (unless you count the playchoice 10, VS. SMB and the ...megaarcade, Idunno. The genesis version of the playchoice 10.)

    MAME only runs arcade games. You need different emulators for NES (Megaman, Mario) and Genesis (Sonic).

    The only good NES emulator for the DS currently is NESDS (nesterDS needs HIGH frameskip) and the ONLY Genny emulator for the DS is JenesisDS.

    The latest NESDS is on sourceforge.com and released on 10/19/10. The latest JenesisDS is on the site of the developer Lordus and is version 0.74.

    These emus should be fairly easy to set up and run.

    Good luck!

    MAME4ALL is a cluttered mess of an emulator. You might have missed it or something. mind posting the names of the files? eg. Pacman's file is called pacman.zip

    also mame4all supports a very specific mame rom set. you simply can't grab mame roms and expect them to work, especially without conversion through clr mame pro.

    another world:
    care to explain how to patch them with the given clrmamepro that u get from the romset
    there aren't any explanations or anything

    i think these games are long enough to work and dont need as much power compared to street fighter and those big games

    as for the roms names, here they are:
    Code:
    btlecity.zip
    megaman2.zip
    megamancp2u.zip
    mmancp2u.zip
    mp_soni2.zip
    mp_sonic.zip
    mt_soni2.zip
    mt_sonia.zip
    pc_duckh.zip
    pc_smb.zip
    sfex2p.zip
    sfexp.zip
    sfiii.zip
    sfiii3.zip
    sfz3ugd.zip

    Ah, as I thought.

    MP_sonics= MEGAPLAY sonics. I don't think megaplay is supported yet.

    PC_SMB = Playchoice 10 Mario Bros/Duckhunt, also not supported yet.

    All they are is NES and Genny games with time limits.

    The megamans are megaman power fighters games (which I THINK are supported) but you probably have a newer version, you have to downconvert.


    sfex2p.zip
    sfexp.zip
    sfiii.zip
    sfiii3.zip
    sfz3ugd.zip

    are like street fighter 3, EX, etc and I'd be surprised if they work at all in mame4all.
