A question from a beginner about playing 8 bit on Raspberry Pi4

First of all, welcome to everyone! And I apologize in advance if my question has already been answered … I’m new here and still have little knowledge 🙂

I’m just putting together my first Raspberry Pi4 and from what I can see there are tons of console game images here. That’s great, but I’m looking for sets from 8 bit computers such as Commodore 64, Amiga, Atari 800XL, Spectrum, Commodore VC 20 and others … in short, I mean real antiques. My dream is to play “Draconus”, “Chuckie Egg” or “Jet Set Willy” again. Unfortunately, most of the images, even if they have some images for old computers, are either incomplete or there are few titles – a little bit on the basis that they should be uploaded.

My question is: is there any image that brings together ROMs from the old computers I mentioned? Some common … or maybe some separate ROM clusters? If they were separate, I thought to upload them to the basic RETROPIE system, which has a lot of supporting emulators …

Or maybe there are some places where I can get a collection of such 8BIT ROMs?

Thanks for all the help! 🙂

Heck yeah, I’m building my own first as well– have you tried archive.org for other images? They have a ton of older computer stuff and lots of MAME, especially european versions.
