Where does the BIOS go?

So I have been trying run NeoGeo Games with the NeoGeo BIOS but when I put the BIOS in the ROMS folder without extracting it, the games won't work. Where do you put the BIOS in?

The BIOS package should go anywhere in your ROMPATH named "neogeo.zip" containing all required parts. Please note that a neogeo.zip from a couple years back will not work - you need to have all updated files and to find those is up to the end user.

Re: Where does the BIOS go?

Does this apply to other systems?

Yes. Generally speaking, 'foo' bios roms go into the 'foo.zip' file in the designated 'roms' folder.

PS: 'mame foo -listcrc' helps
