I am trying to play Metal Slug in mame. I have both and, both showing up in the games list, but when I try to run Metal Slug, it says I am missing one or more required files.

Please help? Thanks.

Can you provide a bit more info about how you are running. What does the logs say? – devav2 Dec 22 '12 at 8:36

I'm guessing you have bad rom files. Do a scan in mame and if the game doesn't show as playable then you have bad rom files.
