    I changed from 3.0 to 3.1 yesterday
    Some info first:
    Pi Model: B
    RetroPie Version Used: 3.1
    Built From: SD Image
    USB Devices connected: 32gb pendrive with mame roms
    Controller used: keyboard for now

    – using the same MAME files that i used with 3.0, in 3.1 some games dont run at all
    – using same MAME files that i used with 3.0, in 3.1 and in some games no key works… nothing.. only exit (select+start)

    Anyone having this problems??… should i just back to 3.0 ???




    Which version of Mame? I cant get Mame4all working at all – games appear to load but then it bins me out to the menu again. Worked better in 3.0 for me too. AdvanceMame seems to be ok – lr-mame works but stretches the screen wide (havent had time to sort that out yet).

    Enjoying RetroPie R3 using Pi3 and IPAC-2. Happ Controls and Trackball in a custom Bartop with a VGA 4:3 monitor. Primarily used for MAME with a little UAE thrown in.



    Please check this Wiki post to make sure you have the correct romset for the correct arcade emulator first:

    If you still have issues please confirm which emulator you are using. Also to keep things simple until it works, maybe try putting a few roms on the SD card rather than running them from a USB stick.

    Floob, i have 0.37b5 romset, maybe not complete but i have run the whole clrmamepro process… and this is for mame4all emulator… even though… roms are not working
    They work with lr-imame4all but with problems… and not all the roms

    i will download a full romset again today and try again with clrmamepro.

    i just dont get why all this roms work flawlessly in windows… but no with retropie… thats weird..
