Ultimate Old ROMS Hunting challenge!

Hello Retroroms community!

While rebuilding a lot of old sets recently, I realized that many older ROMS are near impossible to source now. Current MAME Rollback has a lot of missing (many purged at 153) and NonMAME 142, HBMAME/HBMAME RollBack, MisFit MAME 128 and older Final Burn sets can't help me any further in my quest.

So I'm looking for NonMAME 141 and older, RollBack MAME 152 and older, Kawak 1.4x and older, MAME32 PLUS!/MORE 205 and older, any full MAME set from 0.27 to 0.35 + their samples, MMSnd 0.36B10 set, and Nugen 0.4 set. Included is all the DAT I have to hunt those ROMS. Hopefully someone have one of those sets on a old off line hard drive or a forgotten FTP server somewhere.


NOTE: Thanks to this community, I'm happy to report that all the Logiqx single/multi sets are now complete! Nice to see all those green check marks! :)


I have those old verified full sets to contribute, if anyone is interested:

MAME 0.26




FightCade 0.42

Final Burn 0.518

Arcade Extreme 2013

All the Logiqx Single/Multi sets

Thanks you all VERY MUCH for your contribution,


DAT HUNTING PACK.zip36.8M34 downloads

You posted 130+ dat files but didn't include a fixdat.

I don't see any reason to collect all separate Rollback sets as the latest one + the latest Mame set has all vailable files.
I also don't see a reason to collect old Mame sets as that is what the Rollback set is for.

Hello Noone,


"You posted 130+ dat files but didn't include a fixdat."

You are right, my bad, I should also have provided FIXes. Included are all the FIX DAT I could come up with for my entire collection, as of today. I'm sure I'll find more missing eventually! ;) 


"I don't see any reason"

As far as I know, many unique ROMS have been lost or removed throughout the years, never to be seen again, Rollback included. My objective is to get as much of those lost ROMS as possible for preservation. You mentioned "the latest one + the latest Mame set has all available files", so I have great hope locating all of my missing shouldn't be a problem. Except maybe for the Daphne sets I took the opportunity of adding their fixes too. Great news! :)

Thanks again,

That's it! After 22 years, I'm almost done with my 1950 to 2005 collection! :)

can someone pleas tell me were i can get the full pc98 set

Hi Ramon, I have a few for you as I'm trying to do a similar thing. I'm currently in a rebuild/update process and I'll look for some more a little later when I get a chance. I would also be interested in getting some dats off you if possible?

Hi Ramon,

attached are a few files for you.

Recreated a set 0.72 for Nintendo Switch

There's no rollback for 8balact

Replaced the missing file from 0.77 rollback set to see how game worked

Of course its the wrong crc but it worked.

This is just a game that didn't work with a bad rom and between 0.72 and 0.77 it was changed and no rollback rom was archived

There's no 0.72 rollback for 8ballact as it can be rebuilt from a full Mame 0.227 set.

I've been compiling source code and building mame sets starting from mame 0.1.

I could not find any  working datfile for those old mames, so it has been quite difficult to test all those old sets. I've found that even earliest versisons of clrmame (cmwin), romcenter or mamemerge depends on mame binaries starting from v0.34 with CRC32 (needs mame -listcrc). I had to use the source code to figure out rom names and name changes, as some were not at all documented.

Oh, those sets can't be built with regular rollback sets. I had to resort to really old backups, web archive of dave's classics website and some luck.

Anyway, I've just finished mame v0.33 and attached those files you are missing. They load without errors on original mame v0.33 and their CRC's match those you posted (and they are in mame source code too).

On the other hand, if you have datfiles for those pre-0.34 mame romsets, I would gladly use them to clean all the mess I've made with extra and unused files. It would be nice also to download your sets from MAME 0.26, 0.29 and 0.31. I believe mine are complete, but it worth checking out.

see ya

Did you try the dats at ?

The reason you can't rebuild them from the rollback set is probably because the old dats used inverted crc32 for badly dumped roms.

 Yes, I did. They do not work at all, recognize like 15% of roms only, roms I know are good.Tried many clrmame versions, from older ones to newest available.

 Older mame's doesn't even have crc checks. Inverted crc isn't a problem, as clrmame recognizes badly dumped and/or no good dump known.
