Right click it, and select "Audit" After a short scan, mame will tell you if the game has passed the audition or not. if not, then either there are files missing from the game, which means it wont play properly or not at all.
Please make sure you read the MAME™ license and MAME™ ROM legality, we cannot provide any advice on the legality of ROMs, nor any assistance on how/where to download MAME™ ROMS.

Mame requires the parent rom for any of its clones to run.
However, my mistakes and mishaps are your fortune because I intend to walk thoroughly through step by step. Using bios roms with Mame is an inert process, mame will actively look for and use a relevant bios when it requires it without you needing to do anything. You have to leave them zipped and place them in the mame/roms folder just like any game rom.Remember many mame roms are regularly changed and/or updated so even with a good working rom it can still need updating with different versions of the emulator from time to time. Just select file from the mame32 toolbar and click audit all. One of the games Die Hard it said it needed Die Hard CRC. After burner just won't work at all i guess it doesn't work with the version of MAME i have.Mame will report any roms with problems or missing files. I did unzip the Bios files to see if that did ne thing but nothing at all.
