MAMEDEV – The official site of the MAME development team
The official site for MAME development, so here you can find the latest (not to mention all of the previous releases) of MAME in their source and binary formats. Each release also carries information regarding the changes made.
KLOV – Killer List Of Videogames.
A database of coin-operated video games with 4,424 entries. Though not complete, it holds machine details, plus images of the machines, marquees and screenshots.
MAWS – MAME ROM information site.
You can search through a pretty exhaustive list of parent and clone ROMS with every possible filter you would need (using the deluxe search). From the playable Genre, buttons, players orientation… to the more technical CPU, driver status, version… and so on.
ArcadeControls – The best resource for building your own arcade cabinet.
The information on the main site is pretty useful for getting started, making sure you know exactly what you’re letting yourself in for. For more in-depth information, get yourself into the forum. A very friendly and collectively, knowledgable bunch. If you can’t find what you’re after with a search, then members will bend over backwards to help.
Progetto Emma – Up-to-date category files for MAME.
These guys picked up where Catlist stopped creating new files. Here you can get the latest catver.ini, cat32 and deluxe32 files to make sure you have a good list.
RotheBlog – The ultimate arcade-collector’s blog.
As well as information on hunting down and owning a piece of your childhood memory, Jeff also provides valuable information for arcade restoration. Including vectorised artwork, repairs and tutorials.
CoinOpSpace – Arcade and pinball community.
Another of Jeff Rothe’s creations, CoinOpSpace is primarily stateside. Offering up a place to discuss and show your own machines and projects.
