Yes, it by default looks inside the emulator directory instead.
You have to edit mame.cfg (found inside emulator folder) to look in wherever you have your roms at (usually ~/RetroPie/roms/mame).
Just change “rompath” to the rom location (so if you have it in the same spot, “rompath=/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/mame”).
