Buy Legal MAME ROMs

Put some money into the pockets of classic game publishers.

Let’s face it—as fun as Gridlee [Hack #24] may be, what you really want to do with MAME is play the arcade games you remember from your misspent youth (or, depending on your age, satisfy your curiosity about what us geezers used to think was high-tech). You want the real thing, but if possible you’d prefer to do it without running afoul of copyright law. In that case you’ll want to visit StarROMs, Inc. (http://www.starroms.com), which at the time of this writing lets you legally download twenty-seven different Atari arcade titles.

Warning

There are a few different web sites and online auction sellers who sell CD-ROMs or DVD-ROMs containing every ROM known to work in MAME. Bear in mind that these are not in any way official products.
