To use the Advance Projects in DOS and Windows you have to download one of the binary packages. For Linux, Mac OS X and other platforms you must download the source package and compile it.
You can download all the previous versions from SourceForge.

AdvanceMAME is based on MAME 0.106 and it requires a romset aligned to that MAME version.
You can download a MAME 0.106 ROMs archive (14GB) with this torrent.
Alternatively, there is a big MAME 0.106 ROMs+CHDs archive (70GB) available at MAME 0.106 ROMs, CHDs, and Samples.
Or you can get the MAME 0.149 ROMs archive and use a rom manager to adjust it for AdvanceMAME.
The samples for 'batsugun', 'dogyuun', 'ghox', 'samesame', 'tekipaki', 'vfive' and 'vimana' are available at mediafire.
AdvanceMESS is also based on MESS 0.106 and it also requires a romset aligned to that MESS version.
The most similar one available is the MESS 0.149 BIOS ROMs archive. You'll likely need to use a rom manager to adjust it for AdvanceMESS.
AdvanceMENU is able to use static snapshots and animated clips to show better the games.
The following is a complete collection of animated clips mostly derived from the CrashTest collection with additions from other multiple users.
