Naturally, I have them already and just want them to back up my old hardware.

I used to have a pile, now I don't, and I would like to grab a few. Anyone have any suggestions?

It's ages since I've been out hunting for them. But the last time I used them I searched in Google for MAME.

JM, you should know me better than that. Been there and got all sorts of popups and bollocks.
Anyone got a specific location that is safe and okay?

Hi Rob, Ive got about 220 Roms but I downloaded them over a year ago. Your post prompted me to search for some more (you can never have enough :-) ) and I see what you mean. All the old links I had are either dead or closed down and now all those damn top25 bollocks ones are all you get. I can never get to a proper site from them -they are just a maze backing onto eachother.

In doing a search in Kazaa (Mame rom) theres a few hits - some with huge file sizes so they seem to be someones entire collection. Cant vouch for the safety of them though. Im happy to share the ones I have but Im only on dialup so would take a little while :-(

A friend said that http://www.vipersroms.cjb.net was a good place. Know it has newer roms, dunno about MAME support?! Might do though!

Try it and see if you get what you want!

Cheers

I know a wee while back there was a chat room in WinMX for sharing them!

Also good for music Videos (I'm just getting Doctor Evil - Hard knock life, coz I luv MiniMe!)

Cheers

The one I need to track down (for a friend, honest) is missile command.
Could you email that to me on my official idg address? It should be less than 32kb unzipped.
thanks

You could always try my humble little site.

Request roms & have them emailed to you.
I've run a rom request email group for a couple of years now.

Just under 800 members in the email group.

1200 hits on the site so far this year, from 40 different countries.
