Migrating from pi3 to pi4 mame2003plus not working
Hello everyone. I have been migrating from my 4.5.1 build on rpi3A+ to a fresh 4.7.1 rpi4 2gb ram
So far mostly straightforward, i copied the bios, roms, configs, have reinstalled every extra and optional packages. Everything goes ok except for mame. I had several roms configured to mame 2003 and 2003plus before. Now 2003 isnt available anymore on retropie, and i can only run mame2010 ok, but not any single mame2003plus rom.
I remember copying almost everything through a usb drive, in the config folder i believe that is "to retropie" but maybe i have messed up copying some files manually through winscp.
Any help is appreciated and sorry for my bad english. Have a nice day
@ogroto verbose log, please: https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first
lr-mame2003 is certainly available in the 4.7 pi4 image. 2003, 2003plus and 2010 use different romsets so your romset will only be appropriate for one of these. 2003plus's romset does change over time, also, so you may need to update it if that's what you're using.
@ogroto Your issue seems related to the video driver chosen for this particular system.
[INFO] [Font]: Using font rendering backend: stb-unicode. [INFO] [Video]: Graphics driver did not initialize an input driver. Attempting to pick a suitable driver.

Do you have a custom
Reset it to RetroPie's defaults by removing/renaming
/opt/retropie/configs/mame-libretro/retroarch.cfgand then re-installing
Try again after re-installation to start a Mame2003 game.
@mitu Thank you for your answer, as far as i remember i didn't edit that file. I only edited the emulators order in ES which is es_systems.cfg i believe.
I did what you mentioned above and after deleting and reinstalling, it is still the same.
I'm using gpio arcade buttons, and xbox360 wireless. I have downloaded some launching images from the experimental packages, retropie-bgm-player , skyscraper, installed a modified openbor to show on ES and eazytools and well that's almost everything.
I had to unplug the pi some few times, one being dkong on mame2010 launching but it completely hangs to the point of no f4 or reboot available. This also happened in my rpi3A previous build.
Maybe this screwed some files? this indeed happened some times to me in the past, but to the point of no booting at all. Thank you for your time.
Can you post the contents of the main RetroArch configuration file, from
Looks ok. Are you sure you removed the
mame-libretroconfig folder before re-install Mame2003 ? Can you post the content of that
This happens with old core overrides from the previous install. Make sure you delete any you have.
Maybe i need to reboot before reinstalling them?
No, no reboot is necessary. The config file look stock, but for some reason it's giving an error. Are you running EmulationStation from the desktop environment by any chance ?
@buzz Oh that might be my case, i used a lot of core overrides saves for inputs and shaders, could you point me what files or lines should i delete? inputs and shaders? Thank you
[INFO] [Overrides] core-specific overrides found at /home/pi/.config/retroarch/config/MAME 2003 (0.78)/MAME 2003 (0.78).cfg.
Try renaming this file.

Good day everyone, sorry for reviving this old post. I have now built a bartop and tried to go fullscreen 16:9 (small lcd screen 19')
Every emulator i configure with retropie setup changes from old 4:3 to 16:9, except FinalBurn Neo
This is my opt/retropie/configs/fba/retroarch.cfg
# Settings made here will only override settings in the global retroarch.cfg if placed above the #include line input_remapping_directory = "/opt/retropie/configs/fba/" aspect_ratio_index = "1" video_smooth = "true" video_shader_enable = "true" video_shader = "/opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/shader/zfast_crt_standard.glslp" #include "/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg"
They all look the same. But this one emulator does not work and stays 4:3
Any help is much appreciated
Found it, it is the first line in FinalBurn Neo.cfg aspect_ratio_index = "1"
@ogroto You should start a new post for this new issue.
