  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
Legal Roms
« on: October 13, 2017, 03:18:34 pm »
I apologize if this has already been answered but I have searched all over with little reults. Is their any place out on the internet where I could legally download classic arcade games like donkey kong, pac-man, etc? I am having no luck finding anything. Is their a website with legal roms or do those not exist? Take mame for example how would you legally play donkey kong on mame?

Thanks

Thanks to the generosity of some of the original creators of the classic games that MAME® can emulate, several games have been released for free, non-commercial use.

None of those are the games he’s looking for.
