Where are the ROMs?


Inserted Coin
I'm finding Table files OK, but where do I go to get the ROMs for the tables?:headscratch:

Be gentle, I'm new here :help:

Look for ROMs at... http://www.ipdb.org/

Search for table, then look for pinmame ROM.

You can also find table ROMs at Archive.Org or via Google. When searching, add the specific name of the ROM file you're looking for to get direct links.

The Pinball Nirvana ROMs folder has been updated. EDIT: link updated 4-8-2020. --@Ike Savage

Note to VPM table authors when uploading, feel free to add the following code in the description area, replacing the IPD id number (2285 in the example below) and the rom zip file name @ PN (spidermn.zip) to add links.

I usually just use ipdb, because while you're there you can get a review of the table and some history behind it.

Never did figure out how to tell which rom to pick without running the table and seeing the Pinmame error message telling you which one it's looking for (Although I know some folks like Pacdude put a rom list in their script, but not everyone does this.)

Still Missing 49 set

I have been looking at both sites you suggested but according to
Clrmame I'm still missing 49 rom sets! See the pinmame_miss.txt file
attached to this message. Does anybody here have them?
I admit I'm a bit of a purist in these things!

Thanks Twilightzoon



what did ya' do accidently erase your entire rom folder? that's a hell of alot of roms yer missing there! still go to IPDB they should have most of them, I'd say check on here but it easier to search on ipdb than it is on here for missing roms! (no offense to the admins here)

Send me an e-mail with your ClearMame Pro log file.
I'll set you up for the missing roms.
It looks like you are missing mostly Gottlieb roms.
