Arcade ROM identification

ARiD Logo


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.

  1. I think something is broke ๐Ÿ˜‰

    ROMs are only showing one of the ROMs .. not all of the roms in a set..

    the proms for tempest are shared with battlezone, etc.. only one entry shows up.. not all of them with the same signature..

    1. Bob you’re right!
      The database needs a cleanup after the update, now it should be fixed and works as expected.
      Thanks for your feedback ๐Ÿ™‚
