Well Ken, Mame if I remember rightly stands for multiple arcade machine emulator.

Thus, the rom's you can run on it are only those of arcade games, be that Tron, the simpsons beat em up or something else.

Sinse back in the 80's and 90's, many games like golden axe and double dragon also had ports on consoles like the Snes and Mega drive, this means there are some duplications sinse games like double dragon came out as coinops on those systems, though there are often advantages in playing games both on the arcade system and on the console version.

for instance, Arcade golden axe has better sound and graphics than any of it's console ports, however Mega drive golden axe has a duel mode, a last level, and far more options in the game.

Then of course there were many games that never had arcade originals before, --- -Mario brothers 2, the Turrican series, the donkey Kong country games on the snes etc, so you won't find these on mame.

Myself, Mame is the only emulator I've ever got into running being as I personally own a snes and mega drive anyway, and playing on the original console is far easier than running emulators.

i've also done amigar emulation, though only to play original turrican games sinse Amigar emulation (as your emulating an actual computer not just a games system), is far more complicated.

Generally I find emulators extremely buggy and tempramental, and some roms may or may not work, so though I've had some fun playing a couple of arcade classics like the Turtles walk along beat em up game and arcade double dragon, it's not something I tend to bother with, ---- especially considdering that a lot of ports of older games are available in far more stable versions on consoles, for instance the Nes classics series on the gameboy advanced which I can run on my gamecube through the gba player.

Running old games is chiefly what I'd be interested in getting a wii for, though as I've said I've never found a sufficiently workable way of using the annoying menues enough to run a game once I had it.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

What is the difference between this pack of emulators and the MAME emulator, which seems to run just about every kind of game out there? There was a game I used to play, when I had the MAME, called Tron. In the first level, you and your opponent would throw power discs at each other. It was a bit simplistic, but rather fun as well.

Ok, while this interface seems somewhat accessible, how would I get it to find something like a mame image of a game I have - have tried copying it all over, moving it around, etc. etc., and never appears?

TIA
