No problem, happy to help.

What you said explains it. If you’re actually in the mame4all-pi directory then doing this won’t work:
mame <gamename>

This would would work though:
./mame <gamename>

The nice thing about this command is that it works regardless of what directory you’re in:
/home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/mame4all-pi/mame <gamename>

So give it a try when you’re not ssh’ing in. It should work, and the only problem you’re likely to hit is a rom that is not compatible. The version of Mame for your windows pc is likely compatible with a much more recent version of the roms, whereas mame4all-pi is compatible with 037b5 roms from over 10 years ago.
