[help] hbmame dumps?

Hi guys,

I am not sure if this topic is allowed, I hope to not doing anything wrong.

I trying to find rebuild some FBNeo roms but the wiki is not clear for me, there is written:

Step 2: Gathering the ingredients

It mostly consists of latest dumps available for MAME. The other romsets are usually a mix of hacks and homebrews, most of them can be found in HBMAME dumps.

Where are these dumps available?

I found an official homepage: http://hbmame.1emulation.com/

And a GIT archive: https://git.redump.net/hbmame/

But I didn’t found anything that says clearly: <<hey we are the dumps, please download us>>

Thanks in advance,


Links to ROM sites cannot be provided here. You will need to do some Googlin’ for them

For what I understood HBMame dumps aren’t “legal” roms are just home-brew piece of code or am I wrong? :man_shrugging:

It’s part of the Rules listed in the FAQ

Clearly, I have not intention to infringe any rules.

Some of the homebrews might be legal to share (the ones that aren’t commercial), but the hacks are definitely subject to the same laws as the original copyrighted content.


Clearly I didn’t understand a bit about hbmame and those dumps mentioned in the wiki… :sweat:

please feel free to close this thread if you think is better, thanks!


The “HB” part of HBMAME is maybe a little misleading since it also includes hacks of commercial ROMs. So, that’s why it’s not allowed to be asked for here.

Then again, maybe it’s short for “Hacks and ‘Brew’”? :thinking:
