This includes game titles from late 70s/early 80s (such as arcade Space Invaders, Atari 2600, C64, ZX Spectrum) to 90s (such as Amiga and arcade Street Fighter 3).

Mamehub uses the MAME and MESS emulators. and therefore if a game title works in these normally, it should work in MAMEhub too (that is should, not always guaranteed, due to complex game save issues of

some games). However, the good news, MAMEhub has the potential to run an estimated 40,000 game titles

Nice. Do you need to have ROM's already on PC to use it?

I've got tons of Mega Drive roms - of which I play about 3

Both players need the ROM, the online has GGPO style rollback system and runs amazingly well.
QuestorNZ and I played Ninja Turtles all the way through with 0% packet loss at 90ms ping, Australia to New Zealand.

I have tried a few online systems and this is one of the best - as Tramp says, GGPO works well too, but that's only been really sorted with FinalBurn AFAIK

Kaillera was a great online library back in the day, but I don't think that's been updated in years

If you don't have the rom the host is running it will automatically download it of them.
