Mame is now 0.181 - Plus Hyperspin & psp set updated. Many new updates this year.
Retro Burner is a UK based Mame burning service supplying Mame and Retro classics from the past to the UK as well as World Wide.
Offering a large collection Mame, arcade and console classic games that have now disappeared.
We will only ever make available collections that are no longer supported. If you are looking for Playstation3, Xbox360 or other new console games then you are in the wrong place and I am afraid we cannot help you.
Its just Mame and the old stuff !
We will be adding new items quite frequently so please check back in a week or so. If there was something you are unable to find them mail me as I may have it.
Please take a moment to read our frequently asked questions
How can I request a mame set ?
Just click on the one of the "Place order" Symbol and you will be able to chose the items that you require. Following that you then select the method of sending me the funds that best suits you.
We can accept all forms of payment methods from instant on-line to cheques ,postal orders, money orders. Most bases are covered but please state your preference.
How quickly do I receive them?
Most of the items listed are pre-burned and I try to keep a copy of everything already done. So expect a turnaround of a couple of working days plus a day or two for postage. I do offer a recorded delivery if requested. I send an email upon receipt of a request just to let you know when your item will be posted.
What Media Do you use?
I only use media that uses a ritek dye. There is no point using cheaper quality media as I just make work for myself!
How Much Is Postage and packing?
Included! Postage and the blank media are all that you are covering the costs for.
I have a disc that wont read in my DVD.
Don't worry any discs that are faulty or not compatible are replaced without any quibble whatsoever and at no extra cost. You just have to tell me. PS (Dont forget to give them a wipe first!)
Do you Offer any Technical Support?
I will try to help anyone that has any kind of mame or emulator problem so try me!
Will you send them anywhere in the world?
Yes I am able to send anywhere in the World within reason.
Is it illegal ?
No its not illegal to download or use an emulator such as mame or to request a backup copy of a "Rom" as long as you own the original or if the copyright owner has given his permission. The vast majority of the companies that owned the copyrights are no longer in existence and the original formats that they were available in are no longer sold. As long as no one is harmed by the distribution of these old games then no one really minds. Its important to make the point that none of these games are commercially supported. These are archive sets meant mainly to be used for the development of emulators or testing of emulators. You must abide by these rules if you are requesting a set.
This is a hobby and not a business. The funds received are to cover me purchasing the raw materials for you! The contents are provided free of charge and you are welcome to send me your own media for me to burn on your behalf. The choice is yours.
Keep these old mame games alive.
The Retro team
