You only need Bios roms for some games (like Neo-Geo), most don't though...

The thing you need to remember when getting MAME roms is that there are "parents" and "clones". Download the parent roms

A site that makes it very easy to identify the difference is PlanetEmu... Let's use Robocop as an example:

There are quite a few different sets:

... Robocop (Japan)
... Robocop (US revision 0)
... Robocop (US revision 1)
... Robocop (World bootleg)
... Robocop (World revision 3)
... Robocop (World revision 4)

The parent rom is the one above in bold. When you click on the link for Robocop (World revision 4) you will notice that there is no "Rom Parent" information under the details. This means it is the parent:



If you click on any of the other Robocop links you will notice that there is "Rom Parent" information under the details. It will tell you which is the parent rom and is also a link:



Hope this makes sense
