Public Domain ROM Sites
#3
I apologize if this is a too off-topic discussion for this thread as this might even be too off-topic for the RetroPlayer subforum, but I think that it is a good on-topic suggestion in regards to Legal ROMs sites and XBMC, that is;

Game Store for games ROMs
That is, provide a centralized Game Store for games ROMs inside Kodi to enable easy access to downloading of ROMs as digital content directly from inside the 10-foot GUI. To make games ROM downloadable from Kodi as easy as addons you probably need a new type of addons that can provide access to different digital distributions and content delivery networks. So when and if RetroPlayer makes it into XBMC mainline it would really nice to have an Python Script or Plugin Addon in XBMC with a nice integrated GUI as part of RetroPlayer or a general Games Manager Library, with an content delivery interface called "ROM Store" or something similar, that content delivery interface would work like XBMC's existing Addon Manager, being a digital distribution platform with repositories and browsing of available addons, but instead of offering normal addons those plugins or scripts would instead only allow you browse game ROMs. Adding a on-demand digital distribution platform for downloading ROMs to RetroPlayer in XBMC, and at least have some legal ROM site repos added by default to that, and the users themselves could add links additional repos for sites that contain other ROMs.

Kind of like how content delivery platform interfaces like how Cydia works on jailbroken iOS devices

So it would be like an Game Store for ROMs within XBMC, smoothly integrated into existing GUI if possible so the Game Store did not look like an addon.


Anyway, here is a list of a few more Legal ROMs site, or rather sites that offer "Public Domain ROMs" free to download, since all ROMs are legal, it is just how you use them that might be illegal, so checkout:
