Hello all. Does anyone know where I could download a COMPLETE working mame .227 romset from? I know it will be big but that doesn't  matter. Its been awhile since I have updated my mame (version 163 was the last time I completely updated it). Thank you.

You have to be careful using torrents when pirating closely watched things like movies, games, music. I've used pleasuredome for many years, and they are pretty safe. Roms are not high on the watch list. 

Would you know where to get a complete mame .227 CHD set?

you can try this... I found it on reddit. I think it is safe, but i have never downloaded from here. It looks like you have to click on each one individually.

I don't think there is any easy way to get them all without torrent. 

I used this link you gave me and I was able to download them all at one time instead of individually by using a program called Flashget. It took a while to do but it worked great. I think there was around 12000 files or so.

Learn torrent. it will make life easier downloading large sets. 

 

Pleasuredome is easy. just create an account. 

install qbittorrent which is in the first post on the main page. 

scroll down a little and click on the mame .227 torrent download. it will open in qbittorrent. tell the torrent where you want to store the files, and you should be set. 

split - smaller file sizes, but you need all files for a Parent/clone set. example... for pacman you need to have the pacman rom, and puckman rom (i use this version)

non merged - each game is separate. you do not need additional roms to play a game. Larger files. example... you can play pacman with just the pacman.zip file. 

merged - all games are in one file. Largest file. example... pacman, and all clones (puckman) are in one pacman.zip file

 

the CHD torrent is the larger hard drive games

 

The only thing with Pleasuredome is they are a ratio site... so if you download roms from them, make sure you keep the torrent active so you can seed back the files for a few weeks at least. 

 

wget -r -np -nH --cut-dirs=1 -R index.html http://90.230.15.92/Arcades/mame_0227 (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator)/

 

If you are Linux, easy. If you are OSX, brew install wget. If you are windows, get visualWGET (https://sites.google.com/site/visualwget/a-download-manager-gui-based-on-wget-for-windows)

I don't know if you specifically need mame 227 roms but I use this site for Mame 198 roms. It's safe and fairly reliable:

https://www.planetemu.net/roms/mame-roms?page=M

 

It's been years since the mame development team added anything worthwhile so I find no reason to have the absolute latest set. A reasonably recent one is usually more than good enough. 

 

Every time I check the update to see what's new with Mame releases I usually wonder why they even bothered. Apparently preserving games is no longer their priority.

 

I was hoping to see Time Crisis 2 and some of the never ported Konami 3d games at one point but I gave up waiting. 

 

I'd advise against downloading a full rom set. You'll end up spending more time searching through endless lists of garbage than you will playing.

 

Mame apparently "supports" 10,000 games but the reality is that there is probably less than 500 working games that anyone would actually want to play in 2021. I recommend just downloading the 100 you'd actually play.

need help with a bat file to delete the first part of subfolder names 

I have complete mame chds in subfolders unzipped but the folders are all named for example MAME 0 225 CHDs merged_ikaruga I would want ikaruga would rather not have to manually rename 500+ folders
