    (Thanks to @nesito for the Spanish video guide).


    - Download Source code.zip from https://github.com/DSkywalk/retroarch-clover/releases

    - Search for mame2003_mini.hmod inside core_modules_extra folder and copy mame2003_mini.hmod to your desktop

    - Download source code.zip from https://github.com/ClusterM/retroarch-clover/releases

    - Copy the folder bios_template.hmod to your desktop and rename to bios_neogeo.hmod

    - Download neogeo.zip (I can not link to this file but i'm sure you find it...)

    - Copy neogeo.zip to bios_neogeo.hmod/etc/libretro/system/ (put neogeo.zip here)

    - Now copy bios_neogeo.hmod and mame2003_mini.hmod to your user_mods folder that you find inside your Hakchi folder

    - Run Hakchi2.13e tool and go to Module-Install extra modules and install both bios_neogeo.hmod and mame2003_mini.hmod

    - Now find some games and change the command line for imported games from bin/zip to bin/mame2003

    - Now synchronize your games (you get a pop-up to import as archive) and have fun playing ! ;)

    The roms you used are maybe fba games, search for mame2003 games instead.

    Is this method still valid with 2.14b version? Doesn't work for me, don't know what I do wrong :mellow:
    Maybe a bad rom? The game I try to run is Metal Slug, adding it as an archive (internal files are C1, C2, C3, C4, M1, P1, S1, V1, V2 types).

    Gambia, The
    One important thing: mame2003 and fba can only handle zip compression. So don´t add an archive as .7z :)
    Also, install http://www.fbalpha.com/ on your computer 1st to try out your rom. It has a built in romlist and when you select that game and go to re-check romset, it tells you what files should be included in your zip file, its correct name, and if you´re missing something for the game to run. Also it helps you to avoid the mistake of trying to run a fba game with mame2003. A LOT of romsites are not so specific in their labeling.
    Metal Slug is a fba game, so use the core fb_alpha!

    Also, how to get blood on metalslug (instead of watery sperm):

    My 2 cents : I would add mame zip rom. But I used to renamed all the zip files before uploading. I didn't find why no one run.
