    I don't recognise those specific games, but check out the Retroarch thread for MAME.

    Try either the Retroarch MAME 2000 or MAME 2003 cores. Be aware that they both require specific romsets: 2000 needs MAME 37b5 roms, and 2003 needs MAME 0.78 roms. 2000 also runs a little better compared to 2003, but 2000 doesn't have the in-game MAME menu or rebindable buttons, whereas 2003 does.

    The stand alone Final Burn Alpha core shouldn't be overlooked. That romset runs a ton that the others don't and at superb speed too. It's also more stable than Mame 2000 in the sense that it supports ROM switching without crashing / needing to restart the program.

    definitely check MAME 2000 and 2003 Retroarch because they are pretty good Arcade Emulators and I had no problem with them .... just make sure you have the right Roms and files inside
