Have a working self_built MAME cabinet
Purchased Raspberry PI 2
Latest Retropie (as of writing today)
Inserted USB into PI to get folder structure
Ran thru the steps on https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/Managing-ROMs
copied over newly create .zip files into mame4all on usb
inserted back into PI and no “MAME” or “MAME4ALL” in emulator selection.
What am I missing here

Are you sure the roms transferred over? Which rom folder did you put them in? There are 3.
Also did you refresh emulationstation with f4 or quitting emulationstation from the start menu?mthompsonParticipant12/31/2015 at 17:07Post count: 8
Dumped them on my USB drive to mame4all. Just checked in File Manager, and only thing in /home/pi/retropie/roms/mame-mame4all is 2 folders, artwork and samples. Looks like I am missing the neogeo file to add to my mame4all DIR. IS it ok to ask for that file since not a ROM?herbfargusMember12/31/2015 at 18:02Post count: 1858
It’s a bios and has the same legal standing as roms I.e. you’re on your own in finding it.
But If there are no roms in the folder they wont show up in emulationstation. You may need to use the cp command if they aren’t transferring from your usb. Or just use samba shares.mthompsonParticipant12/31/2015 at 18:57Post count: 8
Understood. Not sure where I went wrong, but redid the process based on the link/video you provide…I now have MAME and ROMS. I dont however think my PS3 USB controller is configured proper. I have that controller and a wireless mini_keyboard connected. Keyboard is good. Configured the controller and no buttons do anything within a game. In emmulationstation, the controller does function…so this leads me to believe I’m missing some factor in my setup/config.herbfargusMember12/31/2015 at 20:56Post count: 1858
Press tab to configure mame controls for mame4all. It’s explained on the wiki pagemthompsonParticipant01/02/2016 at 20:35Post count: 8
Thank you sir. Slowly chugging away this project. Once you insert the USB with fiels in its proper location…it just works lol. Now my question, as I have a few ROMS that are missing file…how do I remove them from EmulationStation? Was going to go thru and mark off which were incomplete and then remove them to keep it clean and proper. Also, what do I need to remove to say get rid of the MS DOS emulator from the menu? Goal is to only have needed items listed.

You can press select in emulationstation and delete roms individually or you can delete them in the backend over samba shares but be careful as some of the non working files you may be deleting may cause other roms to be nonworking if they are a clone of the non working parent (confusing I know.)mthompsonParticipant01/02/2016 at 23:15Post count: 8
Understood. Connected via LAN port…but unknow IP address *hint hint* to next question ;)FloobMember01/02/2016 at 23:32Post count: 1629
You can try hostname “RETROPIE” rather than using the IP.herbfargusMember01/02/2016 at 23:43Post count: 1858
There is also an option in the retropie menu to show your IP but I typically just use the retropie hostname as its easier to remembermthompsonParticipant01/03/2016 at 01:05Post count: 8

If you auto boot to EmulationStation, this is how to collect your IP address.mthompsonParticipant01/03/2016 at 01:08Post count: 8
When I try to create a new folder connected over LAN it states no space…its a 32GB microSD…so I know that is not the case. Looks like I dont have write access maybe as I just deleted a file of like 1.8k and still no luck.mthompsonParticipant01/03/2016 at 05:03Post count: 8
“This always the case when installing RetroPie from the image. You have to expand the filesystem to make all of the space available to you. Go to the command line. If in Emulation Station then press F4 to get to the command line. At the command line type:
and press Enter. This will display the configuration tool. Select option 1. Expand the Filesystem an press Enter.
That’s all you have to do. The full space will be available for you to use now”dankcushionsParticipant01/07/2016 at 12:48Post count: 432
if you’re getting ‘missing file’ messages you didn’t rebuild your mame set correctly. it should only produce zips that are correct for the .dat file you gave it.
personally i’d be more incline to resolve it that way than go through 1000s of roms and remove the broken ones!
