also have complete set of both Mame2010 and Mame2016. I don't want to keep both romset on my HDD and waste a lot of storage space for nothing. Could anyone suggest which romset should I keep for future use?
Keeping on-point, when possible, 2016 should trump 2010. For one thing, you could 7zip 2016 ROMsets and they'll work nicely. If you have any questions about compatibility, refer to my Arcade Recommendations List. You'll note that lr-fbneo is highly recommended, but you'll also note 2016 vs. 2010 compatibility for other ROMsets.
Hope this information is useful. It is also highly optimized, in case you just don't want multiple variations of some of your games. Or don't care about the 300+ Mahjong games, or gambling/casino games.
I've never tried before to install 2016 before yesterday. I just recently finished getting the matching romset and wanted to give it a go.
I'm reading the PR and I see there is a potential fix but it hasn't been incorporated into libretro if I'm reading this right. I'll see if I can work out how the fix can be incorporated but I'm still learning the terminology workings of github.
Load up a game in lr-mame2016 like "Donkey Kong" for example, and then go into options and "Enable Cheats."

You then need to RESTART the game (It does not say restart required in the options, but you have to restart) and then when you load up the game again, press TAB on the keyboard to get to the MAME Menu:

And then you can be just like Billy Mitchell and cheat to your hearts desire! :P

I've tested it in quite a few games as so far so good!
Interesting, and I never use the controllers in bluetooth mood, they are always hard wired to the console with USBC
Never tried overclocking, just use it stock for the most part.
More interested in the best em ups anyways, but Jurassic Park was always a fav.
The Sega system 32 graphical rewrite circa MAME97-98 will always cause performance issues on lesser devices,
as @barbudreadmon suggested quite often this can cause skipping and or other sound issues. MAME2003
is one of the fastest cores and apart from that it uses the faster although slightly more imperfect system 32
video code from before the big rewrite i mentioned above.
So it might be your best bet to get the best performance on your device of choice and may sort your sound problems
when playing Jurassic Park it's worth a try at least.
I have the exact same problem but I can't find mame 2016 folder under the bios folder on my image-virtualman 128gb arcade but it must be there as it is an option to use to open the rom file!
Any idea why, or where it could be??
@GongStar the output of dmesg might be useful after the build fails. You are right there is nothing else in the log - I thought there might be something. Not sure of the issue if you have plenty of free space on card, and no overclock.
I confirm the same issue. Also, controls appear unasigned under the retroarch quick menu option, unlike other mame versions (2003, 2010). The only way to remap controls is via the tab menu, but secondary mouse buttons do not work
Hello everyone, so all of the sudden I am getting —- in the control input slots in MAME2016 and MAME2003. These are also uneditable. I would really like to get some game controls configured, so any help would be extremely appreciated! Thank you
This is on Retroarch 1.8.5, and I did not see any error messages. I am just unable to change any of my controls suddenly. I also tried re-installing (assuming that I did something) from binary and it did not help. I did not update the system during this.
Here are my
Raspberry Pi 4B w/4GB ram, 64bit processor
Power Supply used: MODEL DCAR-RSP-3A5C, INPUT 100-240V AC, OUTPUT: 5.1V 3.5A
RetroPie version: Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster) - Linux retropie 4.19.97-v7l+
Built From: RetroPie-Setup version: 4.6.1 (4464b474)
USB Devices connected: SNES controller, USB keyboard
Controller used: SNES controller, USB keyboard
Please note: I did switch to a PS2 USB controller during the process of going through my arcade games & configuring the emulators. It did let me change the controls at first and I did not update anything so I cannot understand why I am suddenly getting three dashes in the input slots - - -
Also note: Mame2003 works up I cannot go up down left or right.
SOLVED, a MAME 2016.rmp file was generated in
configs/arcade/mame2016 and over wrote my controls. I deleted the .rmp file and now I have my controls working again.
lr-mame2016 worked OK for me when playing games. I can't tell from your message whether it's working for you but throwing an error which you are investigating or not working at all due to the error. I did the standard Pi 4 build instructions. I couldn't get bbhcotw to run though so I'll be interested if you solve the error for this particular game.
Out of curiosity, I tested a dkong.zip from an unofficial "MAME 2016 Reference Set" which didn't come with any samples for dkong in an extra file. Seems like the 2016 version (aka MAME 0.174) of the dkong rom has its samples included, since – as far as I can tell – it sounds exactly as the MAME 2003-Plus version with an external samples file in my Retropie.
So, if you don't have sampled sound, are you sure you have the right dkong rom file for MAME 2016 / 0.174?
