Those are the only ones which MAMEDEV themselves have gotten permission from the IP rights holder to provide/host for FREE for non-commercial use. Beyond that, you are on your own to obtain things. Since this is a sensitive topic related to ROMS which may degrade into other things, this is being closed.
