HOWTO - Can't run MAME / NEOGEO roms ? Check this thread.
#1
From Retropie WIKI:

Arcade ROMs are tied to the version of the arcade emulator, because the definition of what is the "correct" contents and usage of the ROM can change from version to version of the emulator.

For example, MAME2003 is based off the MAME 0.78 source code, so you must use the MAME 0.78 ROM set with MAME2003. If you use ROMs which are from an earlier or later MAME version, such as 0.50 or 0.100 or 0.173, then those ROMs probably will not work with MAME2003 because that other version's definition of the correct ROM is different from 0.78's definition of the correct ROM.

More info here: https://github.com/retropie/retropie-set...aging-ROMs

A very useful tool to update your roms to desired romset is by installing CLRMAME PRO. Check video tutorial below:

Use MAME2003. It's by far the more stable and with better compatibility , works fine for most games. We will experiment with newer ones but i dont feel much confident myself.

I wish to say Thanks for this tutorial. I used the 0.78 rom set and placed the roms in the right place, now everything is running fine!
It works, really works!
thank you very much!
