just letting you know
hello, I downloaded this twice via zip file and both times it was missing the majority of its files. I had 11,000+ rom zips with nothing in the rom zip. I thought maybe it was my winzip so the 2nd time i downloaded it, i didnt extract but opened it to look around. roms say they have filesize but when you click on the rom and look inside it, it is empty there also. the total size after unzipped is only 4 gigs. unless it's user error (me) but i'm not new to it so not sure what it could be. I hope it is user error so i can figure it out :) Im going to try a 3rd download from a completely different PC. I'll update if i get it working
the decompression utility give an error
"the archive is not complete"

Nice set and Answer to previous reviewer
Thanks for this.
The CHDs (Hard Drives, CDs) are not included in ROM sets. They are generally in separate sets with CHD in the title. Since they don't change much you could use the MAME 0.185 (for arcade) and MESS 0.151 (for computers, consoles, etc.) CHD sets posted here.

Great set, great work.
First of all, thank you for taking the time to do this. Above all machines I think Arcade boards are the most important in terms of preservation, and possibly the most difficult to maintain. Consoles and computer systems just don't compare on the level of difficulty.
I have noticed this set, at least for one game in particular that I have tested so far (Street Fighter III: Third Strike - Fight for the Future) doesn't have the hard drive file, and I'm not sure if those were intended to be included in the scope of this set or not. Regardless, great job and thank you.
