    Hi,

    I’m new to RetroPie, but have played with it for a couple of weeks now, trying to learn it (and linux) through videos and the wiki. Great documentation all around!

    There is one issue I have not been able to solve, which is that lr-mame2003 doesn’t seem to find any roms at all. I read some good stuff about mame2003, and would love to have it work. I have copied the roms into the roms/Arcade folder, and also into the roms/mame-libretro folder (just to be sure). The rom files have been built using clrmame, and have been reported to be OK. I’ve looked into the zips too, and all files are present. EmulationStation sees the roms fine, but trying to run any rom in lr-mame2003 just bounces back to ES. I’ve tried around 20 now. The runcommand.log report all the files are not found, which is weird since they’re all there in the .zip and the most compatible games run fine in lr-FBA and lr-mame4all.

    I am wondering if this could be a paths issue with lr-mame2003? Is there somewhere I can check or edit where this libretro emu looks for ROM files?

    I’m running RetroPie 3.6 on Pi3. Almost vanilla install, only added Daphne.

    I just realized I can do a verbose output from RetroArch, here’s the output I get trying to run Alien Syndrome:

    Not sure what is relevant in here, but it complains about directories not being present. But isn’t it supposed to fetch the roms from the roms/arcade folder anyway?

    BTW, I tried re-installing a newer build from config, so the build of lr-mame2003 is probably more recent.

    Have you recently updated lr-mame2003 ? If so you will need to update retroarch also as it has changes that require an updated retroarch.

    aah you did. Update retroarch and it should work.
