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 :(herbfargusMember01/30/2016 at 22:29Post count: 1858
And you have roms in your mame folder?petrockblogKeymaster01/30/2016 at 22:52Post count: 1827
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 etchobbswonParticipant01/30/2016 at 23:10Post count: 86
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.herbfargusMember01/30/2016 at 23:14Post count: 1858
Perhaps you should verify your rom folder paths and which ones correspond to each emulator:hobbswonParticipant01/30/2016 at 23:18Post count: 86
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.herbfargusMember01/30/2016 at 23:21Post count: 1858
So your roms are in
Because that’s where .037b5 romsets go if you want them to work.hobbswonParticipant01/31/2016 at 00:02Post count: 86

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?petrockblogKeymaster01/31/2016 at 00:04Post count: 1827
lr-mame4all is shared with mame4all as they use the same romset version.herbfargusMember01/31/2016 at 00:08Post count: 1858
Once we integrate this, it should simplify things a little bit (hopefully):hobbswonParticipant01/31/2016 at 01:09Post count: 86
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?petrockblogKeymaster01/31/2016 at 01:18Post count: 1827
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)petrockblogKeymaster01/31/2016 at 01:20Post count: 1827
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 -n20hobbswonParticipant01/31/2016 at 03:42Post count: 86
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.cfgpetrockblogKeymaster01/31/2016 at 04:11Post count: 1827
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 ?petrockblogKeymaster01/31/2016 at 04:13Post count: 1827
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)hobbswonParticipant01/31/2016 at 04:24Post count: 86
So just reinstall the mame2003 and 2010 via retropie setup?petrockblogKeymaster01/31/2016 at 04:37Post count: 1827
just re-install mame2003 from menu 5 (from binary) – this will trigger the es config to be re-added.
