Hi guys, I am a novice when it comes to mame and was wondering if you could give me a hand. I have basically been running mame32 on my computer for a while with a old set of discs as that has been the only way I have been shown. I have just got the discs of mame from smit and was wondering if there were a easy way of copying the files to the roms section in mame32 as I have had to extract each game manually and it has been a nightmare. Am I going the right way about this or is there a easier way? or another emulator other than mame32 cause I really dont know anything else?

Hope you guys can help me out.
Cheers Ryskie

Mame 32 can access zipped files, all you need to do is copy all of the ziped rom files over to the mame\roms directory.

Sweet thanks, saves me alot of time. What do I do with CHD files?

I think that the chd file images must be in a folder with the romset name. e.g.

Killer Instinct...

..\roms\ki\ki.chd

Im pretty sure but havent mucked around with chd's for some time
