Partly inspired by a footnote over at Phu’s blog and partly because I want some decent games to play for a change, I downloaded the latest MAME version. We’ve got MAME on the other machine, and it weighs in a 8gig (that’s without all the CHD games) and on top of that are the titles, snaps, marquees. Big. The latest complete rom set probably runs to over 20gig. Big download. (Edit: The actual MAME download that you need to play is just 6.7MB) So finding Rom World was a bit of a gem. Just those roms that I want and nothing else :) But I should warn you – some of the numbers are scary:
and even the eye-candy stuffed Parodius is only 1318KB.
It’s called gameplay
