ARID FEAT. ROSICA UPDATE MAME 0.228

ARiD is an acronym for Arcade Rom ID.

It’s an identification tool used to check integrity and to spot unknown arcade boards from their EPROM dumps.

The ARiD engine featuring RoSiCa works calculating hashes for the EPROM dumps you fed and then it compare them against the MAME database. So if matches are found, it displays all of them.

It’s always a work in progress but it recognises all the games the loaded MAME database knows.

It also performs checksum calculations for the FLUKE 9010A Micro System TroubleShooter. It’s very useful for repairing vintage computers and arcade boards.

Here’s some data :

ARiD   Engine   : 2.30
RoSiCa Engine   : 0.3
ROMs in DB      : 320938
MAME RomSet     : 0.228

THE COMBATRIBES – TECHNOS

I have some boards getting older in the cellar from ages, they come from my friend Daniele and now it’s time to check them up. The first pick is The Combatribes by Technos.

The Combatribes (ザ・コンバットライブス) is a 1990
beat ’em-up game released for the arcades by Technos Japan Corp (the developers of Renegade and Double Dragon). The game centers on three vigilantes (identified as cyborgs in the SNES port) who must fight against numerous street gangs in futuristic New York City.”
