Where can i find dat files to start ?
This web is a good place to start :

Where can i find ROMs ?
You may try Google but learn about laws and copyrigths in your country.

Why Romulus needs administrator privileges to run ?
Romulus is a complex application that needs complete control of your computer, for read and write to registry, read and write in system directories, etc. Don't worry for it.

When Community module will done ?
I don't know. The priority is get a good Rom Manager and when done the next step is work on Community module.

Can I help ?
Yes !!!! Get the translation file and add new language. Report me bugs found. Send me your ideas. Make a better web than this. Make a forum for web. Rewrite the tutorial with more detailed information ...

About me
I live in Valencia (Spain), and with Romulus I am trying to make a better ROMs manager than Clrmamepro or Romcenter.
The project was started when my Xbox360 had a RROD in this moment I can´t play and I started to code it :)
My current job is sellerman in a big shopping center at computers department. Really i never had a job as coder.
Project Romulus started at 08 of February in 2010.

I like computers, videogames, cinema and heavy music.
Suggestions are welcome and may be sent at
