Hi, just to clarify:
Mame is an arcade emulator program u install on the pc to play old
arcade games. Each game come in the form of rom files
(each game can have its rom files all in one zip file).

So, first things first ...
U need to get a hold of the mame emulator, and install it,
then u need to get the 'R-Type' rom file/s to add into the emulator.

See if u can manage to google for the relevent bits.
pm me if u cant find wot u need.

R-Type was also one of my favs.
I managed to complete it on the PlayStation (pre PS1).

A couple of years ago I tried the arcade version (using mame),
and it seemed a lot harder (more enemies attacking at the same time).
Used to love splitting the ship up, & bashing/blasting them to bits.
The mega-blast was just awesome at the time.

Never really got into R-Type 2. Like all 'follow ups' it never plays the same.
There was also a third mega version, which had been given the full jap
arcade 3d-ish transformation. Very colourful it was, and hard to play !!!

Glad u now up & running.
U need to try the others aswell ... have fun : colors1
