Name list for Arcade roms

Does anyone know where to find a list that shows the names of arcade roms? For example a list that shows the rom zipped name “vsav” and it’s actual title “Vampire Savior”.

It’s not super-readable, but you can check the DATs from FBNeo: https://github.com/libretro/FBNeo/tree/master/dats

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/libretro/FBNeo/master/gamelist.txt might be easier to read, however that only covers games supported by FBNeo.

You can go to http://adb.arcadeitalia.net/default.php
There you click on “Machines” on the left menu and then on “Options - Export the results”
You can export in a lot of different formats. A *.txt export looks like this:

Name:             Description:
mslug             "Metal Slug - Super Vehicle-001"
neogeo            "Neo-Geo MV-6F"
mslug2            "Metal Slug 2 - Super Vehicle-001/II (NGM-2410 ~ NGH-2410)"
mslug2t           "Metal Slug 2 Turbo (NGM-9410) (hack)"
mslug3h           "Metal Slug 3 (NGH-2560)"
mslug3            "Metal Slug 3 (NGM-2560)"
mslug3a           "Metal Slug 3 (NGM-2560, earlier)"
mslug4h           "Metal Slug 4 (NGH-2630)"
mslug4            "Metal Slug 4 (NGM-2630)"

You can also download the DATs.

Inside the DOCs folder, you have a .txt file that shows you the list.
