Default Where do I put Net Geo Bios file?


So my story...

Hubby comes to me and says "Hey, I want to build an arcade machine". Okay, sure let me know how that goes. Three weeks later and x dollars later, I get a "Okay, it's your turn", "uhh, my turn?". APPARENTLY, when he said he wanted to build one, he meant, I am gonna need your computer skills. So, here I am.

I have a diploma (yea yea) in programming (10 yrs ago languages) and everything else is reseach and common sense. Hardware stuff is generally referred to by brother who is my hardware guru.

We have built an I-pac4 and have downloaded Mame32 and Mameclassic so far. I am working my way thru figuring out what is what (was not an arcader as a child).

I keep coming across needing Net Geo Bios for Mame games. I have downloaded it but can't figure out where it goes.

Thanks for your help.

Techies rule.

Damn... why can't there be awesome tech girls in MY city? :<

also, this goes in General emulation.... moving.

As for your question, I have no clue. You sure there isn't a BIOS folder or something?

Perhaps you should move over there: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php - they seem to have knowledge.

The NeoGeo BIOS goes into the folder with the other ROM files (in the folder with the MAME executable, on all MAME versions I know of it's the folder called ROMS). It's only needed if you want to play NeoGeo games (and you should, since there are some really good ones).

and you said Net Geo...well, even if you don't mean NeoGeo, it should still go into the ROMS folder.
Just can't wait to bomb some Dodongos.
