I have downloaded MAME yesterday. I found a site to download ROM's at http://+++++++++.net - but I am a little confused. Will the ROM automatically download into the MAME file? I don't want to download ROMS and then have them be seperate on my computer - I want them all together with my MAME file. I am new to MAME and it just seems confusing to me. I'm sure once I get the hang of it it will be much easier.

Also, how do I get my MAME to be on my desktop? I don't want to have to press my Start button and have to search for the file every time I use it. I'm not very computer savvy and could use some pointers. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks! :smile:

First, no rom links .... :shame:
Now to your questions. Depending on your web browser, you will have to go to the options and change the default download location to the roms folder. So if oyu have mame on your C: drive, then it would be c:\mame\roms. Make sure you change it back or no mame downloads will end up there.

Find the .exe file inside you mame folder and right click, then select send to desktop. This will create your shortcut.

I had a wiz a couple years ago. The mame version that it was compatible with was so outdated that I returned the product. That's about all the experience I have had with it. What did you want to know???
