Finally got a few MAME ROMs to work . . . just NFL Blitz won't work . . .

I did however get Blitz for the N64 and a few games like Zelda, Mario and others that are hard to find.

After looking most of the day today at MAME and different emulator options, I found a small company that sells MAME ROM sets for pretty cheap. This includes the games I was looking for in the first place: NFL Blitz, Area 51, etc. I just emailed the guy with a few questions and may purchase the DVDs here soon. I'll let you know what I decide, PM me if you want the link.

I haven't ordered the MAME games yet (may split the cost with a co-worker) but I did buy a cheap Logitech controller for my HTPC and played some Blitz 2000 on my big screen.

Next, time to try some Punch Out lol.

Got a guy at work who has 5,000 MAME games and is going to bring them tomorrow. The one game that doesn't work for him that we both want is NFL Blitz!!! We are seriously thinking about purchasing the MAME games and splitting the cost.

Wow, that's a great price dude. I'll wait until the movie prices drop and DVD starts going away.

Does anyone know a good free front end program that will manage any emulators? I found a pay one that is really awesome but I'm not paying for it.

i usually never buy movies anymore, that what netflix is for.

I had tons of VHS movies, then I started buying Tons of DVDs. Some DVDs that I bought I already had on VHS. Threw out all VHS tapes. Sooner or later DVDs will follow.
