ARiD feat. RoSiCa

ARiD is an acronym for Arcade Rom ID, is an identification tool used to spot unknown arcade boards from their EPROM dumps.

It works hashing the supplied EPROM dumps against MAME RomSet, the current version is an alpha/beta/wip but it recognise all the games the latest loaded MAME database knows.

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

Here’s some data …

ARiD   Engine   : 0.3.25
RoSiCa Engine   : 0.1
ROMs in DB      : 287585
MAME RomSet     : 0.196
Last Update     : 30/04/18
Searches Served : 1406

By the way the above projects seems not to be maintained anymore.

… and MAME … of course!

The ARiD engine featuring RoSiCa, works the same way, It calculates the usual dumps hashes of the ROMS you want to identify and then compare them against the MAME database, obviously if one or more matches were found, it displays all of them.
