What is No-Intro?
No-Intro is a group created to preserve clean dumps and fix any ROM dumps that have been altered through intros, trainers, hacks, etc. as well as creating a complete list of all dumped games that were ever released. It gives the pal,japanese,and american variton of the roms. No bad dumps,no betas,no over dumps,no hacks,no homebrew.

From No-Intro's website:
What "No-Intro" does is fill some .dat files, to be used with ROM-Managers, with information about the known ROMS released. Often there are more versions of the same ROM dump, but most of them are garbage, some examples may include: bad dumps, hacks, fakes, overdumps, underdumps, and so on. "No-Intro" lists only the best available ROM; it must be a full dump with no faults and no changes to the file, basically just the ROMS that are the closest as possible to the original licensed cartridges."

Note: Certain system's (Atari - 7800, Atari - Lynx, Nintendo - Famicom Disk System, and Nintendo - Nintendo Entertainment System) roms include what are called headers to tell the emulator how to load and run the rom's binary information. Because headers are not part of the physical ROM's information, a method is required to strip them out when running clrmamepro to verify the true dumped information for that ROM. No-Intro ROM header zipfiles are included below.
