My kids are playing the cabinet quite a bit and I found that even though I had a games list of about 100 ROMS, it including some not suited to under 7 year olds.

I have therefore come up with a list out of that 100, which has about 40 that I am OK for the kids to play.

I was wondering if anyone else has gone thru this process.. I have 1000s of ROMS of many I do not know, so not sure if there are any other good ones out there that might be suitable.

The ones I have so far are (sorry for the extract, couldn't find an easier way to get them out of MaLa):

Thanks for that list! Is there any way of getting a list anywhere of what all the ROMs mean? I'd like to cull mine but can't make head nor tail of half of them!

Not sure what you are asking ...

I know a lot of ROMs have multiple version, by language, or location they were released, etc... not sure that they "mean" anything specific.

If you are looking at the raw filenames, then yes it is a bit hard, but most of the emulaters should have a proper list, some even group by game, can exclude working and non working roms, etc.

I currently use MaLa as my front end... it has another program malaGamelist.exe which is used to create games lists.. you just highlight a game from the master list and include it in gamelist. My main game list is only 110 or so.. out of a possible 6929 available on my PC.
