Picade Forum Rules

Apart from the standard rules, we have to clarify the question of ROMs in the Picade forum. It’s boring, legal mumbo jumbo but we’re protecting ourselves and you.

Copyright/Intellectual property law is complex and confusing, it varies from country to country and is enforced almost at random. Because of this we have to take certain precautions to protect ourselves from repercussions, and ask that our users do too.

When posting on this forum, please DO NOT:

  • Ask for ROMs/Game Images/BIOS files, or other files that may be of a questionable origin
  • Ask where or how they can be downloaded
  • Post links to download sites for any of these files

We ask that you use common sense and err on the side of caution when posting any links. If there’s something you think might be okay but aren’t sure, ask us first.

Any posts in violation of these rules will be edited/removed. And… no… that’s not censorship!

To get you started, Mamedev.org has a collection of free, non-commercial use ROMs which you may use: http://mamedev.org/roms/
