Retro Scan: "Varth - Operation Thunderstorm"

MAME CHD Download from Rapidshare.

MAME uses two different file types for storing ROMs depending on the original medium:
  • The majority of ROM dumps are stored in raw format and contained in ZIP archives, one for each game.
  • For arcade machines which use hard disks or CDs, MAME uses CHD (Compressed Hunks of Data) files which contain the entire contents of the original hard disk, CD or Laserdisc. Due to the large size of these media, the CHD files derived from them also tend to be large.

Please visit this post for full MAME 0.134 CHD set. All files has been updated and uploaded to Megaupload.

WonderSwan + WonderSwan Color No-Intro 20080711 Romset

"WonderSwan (ワンダースワン Wandāsuwan) is a handheld game console released in Japan by Bandai on March 4, 1999. It was developed by the late Gunpei Yokoi's company Koto and Bandai. The WonderSwan was made to compete with the Neo Geo Pocket Color and the market leader Nintendo's Game Boy Color (even though the developer for the WonderSwan, Gunpei Yokoi, developed the original Nintendo Game Boy).

The WonderSwan was later replaced by the WonderSwan Color; although, some WonderSwan Color games are compatible with the original WonderSwan, many are designed exclusively for the WonderSwan Color and show a message such as "This cartridge is for WonderSwan Color only" when run on the original WonderSwan.

The WonderSwan was available in ten case colors, playable both vertically and horizontally, and features a fairly large library of games. As it was a console designed essentially for the Japanese market, most of the games are in Japanese, with only a few featuring English text.

While the Game Boy series have issues with fake copies of game cartridges, the WonderSwan is not known to have any fake copies of games. This is probably because the WonderSwan was not as popular as the Game Boy series." (Wikipedia)

Atari Lynx No-Intro 20090817 Romset

The Atari Lynx was a handheld game console released by Atari Corporation in 1989. The Lynx holds the distinction of being the world's first handheld electronic game with a color LCD display. The system is also notable for its forward-looking features, advanced graphics, and ambidextrous layout. The Lynx was released in 1989, the same year as Nintendo's (monochromatic) Game Boy. However, the Lynx failed to achieve the sales numbers required to attract quality third party developers, and was eventually abandoned.

Today, as with many older consoles, there is still a small group of devoted fans, creating and selling games for the system.
