I now have a problem with MAME playing some old arcade titles. I tried to search for the issue on google first but I still haven't got a viable answer.
My problem is this:
I've downloaded MAME by using
apt-get install mame command on my Debian Linux. The installation process went smoothly and I did the right setup afterwards. I've acquired several ROM files including 'Street Fighter III 3rd Strike', 'Street Fighter II': Champion Edition', 'The King of Fighters '97', etc and put them in the rom folder which was specified correctly in the mame.ini file.
I can see the entries for those ROM files once I started MAME (without a GUI frontend as I started MAME in xterm), but when I select any one of the ROMs, I got the same error message. The neogeo.zip file (Neo Geo ROM for MAME) is in my roms folder.
What seems to be the problem? Please help me. Thank you.
