    First I just download PSP MAME4ALL v4.9r2 Hires by TTYman - 16112007. I extracted the folder and in it there is another 4 folders, which I've listed below with what they have inside.

    Folders:
    psp_mame4all_v4.9r2: folders: cfg, roms, data, hi, samples and Eboot.pbp

    psp_mame4all_v4.9r2-noneogeo-nocps1: Eboot.pbp

    psp_mame4all_v4.9r2-usermode:
    Eboot.pbp

    psp_mame4all_v4.9r2-usermode-noneogeo-nocps1:
    Eboot.pbp

    It also has document folders and two DAT File folders.


    What do I do to get MAME working properly?




    My next question is, I've gotten 3 Roms (Street Figther III, III-2 and III-third strike), when downloaded they are a WinRAR file. When I extract it it turns into a folder with the game name and 5 or more files inside.

    How do I make it a working Rom?

    I had this same problem with SFA3 for GBA, it was a WinRAR file which I tried to play with GBA emulator gpSP. It read on the screen but wouldn't play when I selected it. Instead it would send me back to the my XMB screen.

    the key is to not use mame....mame sucks...end of story...what you need is Cps2 and Cps1

    Cps1 is for games that were for arcade that later came out for PS1

    CPs2 is for games that were for arcade that later came out for PS2

    there will be some exceptions but each one of these emulators come with a converter that will convert the right corresponding rom into a cache file....you need both the rom and the cache file to get the game working...

    here are the links to the emulators

    Cps1

    Cps2

    the roms you are on your own with >.>

    SF3? I would suspect it would work with CPS2 but remember what I said, the converter that comes with CPS2 can identify which games will work with it so you should try to convert SF3...if it converts correctly then it will work...if it doesnt then it is most likely that it will work on CPS1

    SFIII runs on CPS3... there is no way the PSP will run that.
