Restore default contents of "roms/arcade"?



  • Hello,

    I recently installed RetroSMC on my RPi3, and as I was migrating my ROM folders to my USB hard disk I appear to have deleted the "arcade" folder, which I remember containing some files. Everything else appears to be working correctly, but I can't figure out how to get MAME to work, and I suspect that it may be because I don't have the arcade folder present with whatever was in it.

    Is there some way to restore the contents of that folder?

    Specifically, I'm referring to the folder that was originally "/home/osmc/RetroPie/roms/arcade".

    If it makes any difference, my RetroPie version is...
    Uh...
    Okay, so there's no way to check it, apparently (???), but the git commit number from RetroPie-Setup is 7141e87cf0a11af70be7324ba507e5983923f7e7, which looks like Jul 20, 2017.

    @khatharr you can reinstall an arcade emulator (eg lr-mame2003).



  • I'll give it a shot. Thank you.

    Okay. That's got it solved. Thanks again. :)
