I want to play a certain game (Raiden 2) using MAME. I think this is possible, because there are videos on youtube of people who claim to have done this.
What general process should I follow to get a game working on MAME?
For example, should I choose an emulator, then choose a compatible romset? Or should I choose a romset, then choose a compatible emulator? Or something else?
Opinions on the Internet differ, and the MAME and retropie documentation are sadly ambiguous.
Also, what criteria should I use to choose emulators and/or romsets? Is there a way to discover which romset(s) and/or emulator(s) are more likely to result in a working Raiden II than others, like some sort of compatibility matrix?
I found this web page, which may be relevant somehow:
