What is the Taito F3 Roll-Up Pack?
The Roll-Up Pack List is a documentation of roms that can be placed on an SD card for a complete F3 kit setup that's ready to use. It includes every playable F3 kit compatible game. This should save people from having to scour the forums to find everything. I'll update my lists whenever new content is available.

How to Use
Format a microSD card as FAT32 using Windows, not Mac or Linux.
Extract the pack to it using 7-Zip, maintaining the folder structure. If your card is the I: drive for example, the layout must be exactly I:\games\rom folders\

Troubleshooting
The most common kit problem is SD card incompatibility. Test multiple cards before reporting problems, especially if they are larger than 4GB. Format only as described above. Format the SD card every time you update your pack, before copying new files to it. This prevents corruption and alphabetizes the game list. Format and re-copy everything, every time. "No SD Card Detected" probably means you didn't create a \games folder. It can also mean that your microSD isn't compatible or needs to be formatted correctly.

Here is the long-anticipated F3 Roll-Up Pack. We're still waiting on the fix for Puzzle Bobble 2 but everything else is working, including Puzzle Bobble 2X. Thank you to the AP member who sent me the roms. If someone could go through and double-check/clean-up the NAME files, I would appreciate the help.

Please report any problems, and enjoy.

The monster of smoke delivers again! I can't say thank you enough times for all your ongoing work to build and maintain these roll-up packs. Time to go format my SD card and load this pack, then anxiously await the arrival of my F3 multi!

'Working' is a subjective matter :)

Does this include the fixes i've posted before?
Are all these roms the versions that i've modified to enter into the test menu when launched?
Why am i not on the staff roll? (My e-penis feels tiny now :( )

;)

Sorry! You're on the staff now :D

This pack was passed on to me by a member and I forgot to look into the history of how it came to be. I'll eventually make a table with all of the rom versions detailed (like CPS2 has) and credit you for all of your work.

What was the issue with PB2? Can't remember, I'm pretty sure I have to go through the entire thread again as I probably have missed something.

Also, will an "untouched" roll up pack ever be released with the roms just converted to the F3 Multi format without any fixes? (I don't mind getting to the test menu on boot up)

I would also appreciate scripts which convert the official ROM sets to the multi format
