    Hello everyone. I want to run games from USB instead of SD and followed thisguide

    I have now all my ROMs for every emulator on a usb drive, and they all work perfectly, except MAME(mame4all). MAME just wont show in emulationstation game menu. I have changed the paths in the es_systems.cfg file like I was suppose to and all the other emulators works fine. When I change back to the original SD-path, MAME works. Is there a fix for this? I have no idea how to fix this, seem like the new path just doesnt work

    You have to change the paths in mame.cfg, which is somewhere in /opt/retropie/configs (i’m still on 2.6, so it may be somewhere else in 3.0)

    File to edit: /opt/retropie/emulators/mame4all/mame.cfg

    Change to this: rompath=/media/usb/mame-mame4all

    Basically, es_systems.cfg file and the config file for your version of mame both need to point to the same path.
