If anyone is interested. I have AdvMess working well on the Raspberry PI for the Coleco and other consoles. You can download it at:

Watch out for the emulator.cfg file in there as you would not want to overwrite one if you have one.

I prefer AdvMess over CoolCV as the video takes up more of the screen and it bypasses the title screen. Both controllers can be configured. I made a small modification to AdvMess to fix the controllers. I have also tested Odyssey, Bally Astrocade, 5200 (keypad works), and other consoles. Performance is great on a PI2. I have not tested it on a PI1. Below is the entry I have for the es_systems.cfg.
