Every version of Mame has a hardcoded list of ROMs that it recognizes and will allow you to play. The original Mame developers don't want you to to play copyrighted games or new games that still have value to the authors, so they don't put those roms in the list. Which explains why there are sooo many hacked versions of Mame floating around. People hack Mame to add support for these newer games, and add support for Kaillera. Get Mame32k .90 or 0.64 AntiClose client from the downloads section on They should support the games you want to play.

I have the newest NeoGeo bios for MAME .90. Give me a shout over AIM; my name is Zefnex. If you play Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, just whisper Zefnex_Bellarus and I'll probobly be there.
