    MAME = Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. In other words, NeoGeo is just one of the many different arcade systems that MAME emulates, but it's the MAME supported NeoGeo ROMs that need to be used for NeoDS's converter program. You can't use NeoGeo ROMs from other emulators as they may contain a different file setup and will error when trying to convert them with NeoDSConvert when specific file names within the ROM aren't found.

    Hope that helps you.

    Wish I had known this before I tried it. I loooooooooooove having all the Metal Slug series on my DS (almost all of them).

    It was mostly trial and error, but yes, you need the MAME roms and you then convert them via the tool provided.
