We support a variety of MAME romsets for greater compatibility and performance. Some romsets based on later versions of MAME don’t run as well on the RG351, so it’s generally advised that you use the
mame2003_plus romset and emulator where possible. Other romsets may run decently on the RG552, and experimentation may be worthwhile, but you’ll always have the best performance from the
Recommended emulators and ROM Sets
mame2003_plus: An expanded
MAME 0.78 compatible romset, referred to as the
MAME 2003-Plus romset. Recommended for all games supported by this set. Complete Mame2003 Plus XML Dat File
mame2010: An expanded
MAME 0.139 compatible romset, referred to as the
MAME 2010 romset. Games in this romset that aren’t present in
mame2003_plus will probably not run well on the RG351 Complete Mame 2010 XML Dat File
mame: The current mame running on the current romset. This is
MAME 0.262 at the moment. Dat files for mainline MAME can be found at MAME Dats & XML Repository
Other emulator versions/romsets are included in case they have slightly better compatibility or performance, but are not recommended unless you want to get really into arcade emulation.
Please see the Arcade page for more information on creating romsets.
