Is there a way to play NeoGeo on MAME? I downloaded Baseball Stars Professional, a MAME rom, and when i go to load it doesnt find some files named neo-geo*.* (dont remember the extenstion) and some other things like that and doesnt seem to work. I dont want to just go get a NEO-GEO emu because i wnat to play it online.. can anyone help?

You need the Neo-Geo BIOS Roms for it to work. MAME has a Neo-Geo emulator built in, but you need a BIOS first. I know there's a 'Universal' rom set out there somewhere, but standard ROM rules apply: no requesting, and if you look hard enough on Google, you'll find them anyway. (Maybe searching for 'essential bios roms' or something, I don't know.)

Which, if you're referring to Razoola's Universal BIOS, is not supported by MAME as it is not officially produced by SNK nor is it found on any unmodified commercial boards.

I just know the emulator I use on my Xbox uses it. ;) I didn't think it was on any 'unmodified boards', but really, why would anyone play a game on MAME if they owned a real Neo-Geo?

shouldn't this be in general emulation?

Good advice for any other Neo-Geo issue, but in this case he's missing the BIOS files, which will prevent him from using Neo-Geo games with ANY Neo-Geo emulator.

Which is why I use MAME32 Plus!

BTW, it's actually the 'Universe' BIOS (http://www.universebios.com/) and version 2.0 was recently released.
