How do I get 3rd strike on MAME?

I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to get 3rd Strike running on MAME. I used the search function but couldn’t find anything. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Doesn’t work for me, but either way, you can’t talk about roms here AFAIK.

go to and download that verison of MAME32++0.117 and go to a rom website and download the NO CD japan rom

it grows on trees some times.

I had mad headaches trying to get 3rd strike working on mame, i just gave up and used CPS3Emulator, works like a charm with two bloody files!!

just use 2df.

finding the roms might be a pain though.

Except that it won’t read moves that requires charging down and up.

Like Chun’s spinning bird kick?..cause i can do that just fine:looney:

i have trouble with down ups too. i think it depends if you are the host or not.

Search for ‘how to’ on youtube. There’s a series of videos about it. Even better, the one that I found had the direct links to each component, in the info sidebar. I’d link it to you but I’m lazy.

Oh, really? I never knew that.

But to get back on topic, ROM talk is not allowed on these forums.
