Yeah I am. Good to see a fellow bear on the forum :D

There is a great game in MAME - I can't remember the name of it - it is a shooter played on a single screen, and you are a gangster type guy, and you can dive over sofas and barrels and stuff.

Wish I knew what it was called.

Also try:

WWF Wrestlefest
Windjammers

Most likely it's because you haven't downloaded the konamigx.zip rom. Some games require the bios rom of the system as well to be able to load.

Recomendations? Try:

progear.zip
3wonders.zip
mslug.zip *
kof98.zip *
guwange.zip
sfa3.zip

* also requires neogeo.zip

I can't get enough of it. After I got my new supergun I had to get the game (I'm a huge Marvel fan). Its my favorite arcade beat em up. The difficulty is really balanced, no real cheap attacks like in other games in the genre and the inclusion of lots of brutal weapons (Axes, grenades, assault rifles) added to its charm.
Huge final boss to!

For quick reference here is a list of mame bios files required for various systems with the system name and the rom filename.

They need to remain zipped and be placed in the rom folder, just like game roms. Mame will look for the relevant bios automatically when trying to run a particular system so thats all you need to do.

Bios are subject to copyright the same as roms so cannot be linked or pointed to from these boards.

Anyway, hope this helps:

The weapons in The Punisher are great.

Plus you get to fight a guy in some sort of Robot Wheelchair.

Bonebreaker? The half Human, Half Tank boss (level 3, the waterfront)

Awesome, really good boss, as a side note he also appeared in the X-men arcade game from Konami. Though there he was a smaller enemy in the last couple of levels and not a huge boss.

Think I know the game you're on about, can't remember the name of it though. May have been played in retroleague in a past season.
