****MAME 32k Street Fighter Collection****
**ROM compilation by Phantom F. Harlock**
This is my second MAME arcade ROM compilation. This compilation includes the more popular versions of the Street Fighter 2 and Street Fighter Alpha series arcade games.
I am not much of a writer, so here it goes. This is a MAME32K 0.64 release. This version of MAME is seen throughout the fighting game community as the most stable release for internet play and therefore the most widely used. The mame32k.exe has been modified to include more games than was originally supported by version 0.64. This release also has kaillera netplay available to it. As a bonus, I have set up the mame32k.ini for my personal tastes and preferences, and should serve as a foundation for those that are new to MAME. For more information on MAME32k, please visit http://www.kaillera.com
I have included my favorite Street Fighter ROMs into one complete set in their English releases. I have even included a few of the more recognized variations of the ROMs, including the "recommended" versions. There are some things that you should know when your looking at the games list. The numbers that follow the country are actually the release date of the particular arcade release; Year-Month-Day. So for Street Fighter Alpha 3, I have provided two releases, one released on June 29, 1998 and another released on September 4, 1998.
For MAME newbs: The parent ROM is needed to run clone ROMs. DO NOT DELETE PARENT ROMS OR THE CLONES WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY. MAME is intuitive to know that when you want to play a different version of a particular game, it will look in the parent ROM for all the system data it needs. This eliminates the need for multiple copies of the same file.
