Check the announcements section and read up. ;)

To get games, your best bet is either to google "t o r r e n t" (remove spaces) and "mame roms."

Mameworld.net is another good place to start. Hint: Clrmamepro

:P Support the cause!

Lots of sites have them, some 4 player modded games will say (4 player for kaillera) or something along the same lines to tell you it is the 4 player version!

Some, however, do not tell you that they in fact do support 4+ players!

Apparently all these are, are ram hacks of the regular games.

You can turn the 2 player version of Combatribes into the 3 player version for example by going into the dipswitch (F2) menu and changing it, and restarting.

The issue is that certain versions mame32k don't save these nvram changes when you play online. So changing the number of players won't work, it just desynchs everyone.

HKaillera saves the changes, which is another reason why you can play with cheats if everyone has cheat.dat and high scores too if I'm not mistaken.

But say Mame32 Plus! Plus! won't, so you need the unique "4 players for Kaillera" hacks.

It's a pity though, that we don't have a hack for say "Joust - 100 lives" or something, because some games cheats really improve online. I love to be able to play Joust competatively. In the normal game however, as soon as you run out of lives, that's it, the other player just keeps playing alone forever, so if you want to deathmatch, you can only really do so at the early point of the game. And games with limited continues are also a bother if you just want to play through with two people (thinking the Contra series here for example).
