Mame in Recalbox 4.1



  • Hi all,
    After spending months setting up my Recalbox 4.02 on a 64gb microsd card, I was thinking of trying out the unstable 4.1 release with my games going on a 128gb usb stick (so I can try the large file Dreamcast and PSP games).

    But, before I start, I'm reading conflicting posts as to what the default emulator and Rom set is for MAME in 4.1
    I've done a lot of work with my MAME Roms, removing all duplicates etc, so does 4.1 use the same lr-mame2003 as default, with the same 0.78 Romset?
    I don't wish to lose all my hard work.....
    Many thanks in advance.



  • Apologies. Just realised I posted this in the incorrect section 😞

    Hello @RustyMG
    recalbox 4.1 use :

    • romset mame 0.78
    • romset fba libretro 0.2.97.39
    • romset mame 0.106 for advance Mame (standalone emulator)


  • @acris Thank you for the prompt reply 🙂



  • Hello I checked that there is also advance mame and it's using romset 0.106 . Does anybody tested any tekken game or souledge? If so, pls are they working fast? THX

    @kelv those games won't work, 3D games on Mame are software emulated, so very slow even on a correct pc, you can forget it on pi.

    Try them on psx it's the best solution and they are anyway more nicely rendered than on mame



  • @voljega THX you are right that the workaround is to use PSX however I like to play the original one 🙂 .BTW, I downloaded the romset 0.106 and even the games are not working fine so I will stick to the lr-mame2003. Besides I think in the future the one that will be supported will be lr-mame 2010 or any other superior. THX again

    don't forget to switch emulator and core in options emulators.

    Emulationstation menu > advanced parameters > parameters emulators >

    • emulator : advance mame
    • core : advance mame


  • @acris I only changed emulator not the core... 🙂 Thx for the hint. I will change the core too but I will need to check that after scrapping all the mame2003 games (1500 remaining)

    Advance mame not support subfolder.
    Games will be in mame folder not subfolder and without keyboard advance mame doesnt start.

  • @acris oh I had them in a subfolder 😞 But If I don't have them in a subfolder, they will be overlaped with the mame2003 ones and that's and issue 😞 THX for letting me know

    @voljega said in Mame in Recalbox 4.1:

    @kelv pu the mame2003 ones​ in a subfolder and the advmame ones in root folder ?

    yes, you do it.
    If you change advance mame folder, you need to change for each update.
