    How to get Roms on SDL MAME to work?

    My rom zip only comes out to 1KB and when i put my SD back into the Wii SDL says that it can't find any game. I DID put the zip inside and I even installed the BIOS. What's going on??

    Create a directory called "mameroms" on the root of your SD card and put thr ROMs in there.

    Did that, and still nothing. Unless I put my bios in that new folder aswell? EDIT: Tried that too and still nothing.

    You extracted the games from the .zip file did you?

    Well the zip file is only 1 MB and apparently you're not supposed to unzip them?

    What game? I'm currently working on a Wii SDL MAME compatibility list with MAWS links because there are so many questions about MAME, required files, and compatibility on here. I haven't posted it yet because all I have done so far is 0-9, A, and B. I'm hoping to have it up by this weekend.

    It was X-Men vs Street Fighter which is on the compatibility list. Can you tell me exactly what files I need for that game to run? Maybe I didn't have enough or had the wrong ones.

    X-Men Vs. SF doesn't work to my knowledge. X-Men does.

    Side note: My compatibility list up to K so I should have it up by this weekend as planned.
