Rpi2, 3.4 Jessie install
After I installed the lr-mame4all emulator, upon reboot, the mame option on the ES menu disappeared.
I tried to change the theme but no love.
I also checked the emulators folder and they are all there and executable.
Has this happened to anyone? I’m hoping I don’t have to do a fresh install because I’m close to a pretty functional setup now 🙁01/30/2016 at 22:29 #115701
And you have roms in your mame folder?01/30/2016 at 22:52 #115708
lr-mame4all is installed by default – perhaps you can provide some more information? Where did you put your roms – can you give some example file listing of a few with the path etc01/30/2016 at 23:10 #115713
Yes, I placed all the roms in the
I thought lr-mame4all was installed by default but when I went to the emulators options menu lr-mame2003 was the only option.
So I installed it from source through the retropue setup menu.01/30/2016 at 23:14 #115717
Perhaps you should verify your rom folder paths and which ones correspond to each emulator:01/30/2016 at 23:18 #115718
My paths are correct. The only roms I placed in the folder were from the 0.37b5 set. After I uploaded he roms I was able to launch them from the ES menu but some, that were verified working, wouldn’t launch. So I checked to see if lr-mame4all was the default emulator and that was when I discovered only lr-mame2003 was installed.
I didn’t delete any if the emulators.01/30/2016 at 23:21 #115719
So your roms are in
Because that’s where .037b5 romsets go if you want them to work.01/31/2016 at 00:02 #115721

Ok, yea apologies. That fixed it.
I assumed the mame emulator option would still be in the ES menu. But why do I now not have the option to choose the lr-mame2003 emulator?01/31/2016 at 00:04 #115722
lr-mame4all is shared with mame4all as they use the same romset version.01/31/2016 at 00:08 #115724
Once we integrate this, it should simplify things a little bit (hopefully):01/31/2016 at 01:09 #115730
But here is my issue now…
If I want to run the .139 romset [lr-mame2003] I cannot do it now because I have roms in the mame4all folder. It seems whatever romset I’m using, I’m forced to that romset and it’s respetive emulators exclusively?01/31/2016 at 01:18 #115733
0.139 roms go in in the mame-libretro folder. If you have roms in mame-mame4all and mame-libretro they will both appear in ES (same logo, but different numbers of games)01/31/2016 at 01:20 #115735
If that is not working, please post via pastebin.com or similar a copy of /etc/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg and the output of
ls -la ~/RetroPie/roms/mame-libretro | head -n2001/31/2016 at 03:42 #115742
Ok, so I placed .78 and .139 roms in the libretro folder and the .37b5 roms are in the mame4all folder and the only roms listing are the 0.37b5 roms.

Here’s the es_systems.cfg01/31/2016 at 04:11 #115745
You are missing the config entry for mame-libretro in es_systems.cfg – you can correct this by manually installing lr-mame2003 from retropie-setup (from menu 5).
Have you manually edited the config at any point ?01/31/2016 at 04:13 #115746
Aha, I think I found the problem. the lr-imame4all module which you installed after had some old code when some folders were changed. I will fix this, but basically it removed the old libretro folder and the es config for it (Not spotted this before as the lr-imame4all usually gets installed first, and it comes with the default image etc)01/31/2016 at 04:24 #115748
So just reinstall the mame2003 and 2010 via retropie setup?01/31/2016 at 04:37 #115752
just re-install mame2003 from menu 5 (from binary) – this will trigger the es config to be re-added.01/31/2016 at 05:08 #115753
Thanks Buzz, all is well again.01/31/2016 at 05:34 #115754
I’m sort of glad it all went wrong, as it helped find a bug 😉 So thanks for that.
