Need good Mame Rom sites

Been searching for downloadable Roms on the net, a lot of the sites have broken links or just don't work. Any good ones out there? Thanks

Not really, ever since mame.dk took them down, there is nothing really reliable. Best way to get them was from the Tombstones, they would burn you a complete set of mame roms for free, but they got shut down.

You can try Kazaa. You've got to sift through a bunch of garbage - but there are some quality roms on there.

Yup, register on the site and read very carefully. You will find them.

they are not.. Only your thread was not as vauge as the title here I suppose. when you say Warez you know you are getting pirated/cracked games. when you say Mame it might be to back up said game. a lot of grey area but still, Mame and Warez sites only have a black lash against the forum's owner because said companies can go after them for allowing links to be posted and the such.

Because sometimes, mods actually have work to do that has nothing to do with the forum.

Please don't discuss ROMs and emulators, for the same reason we don't talk about bootleg DVDs. Thanks.
