I want to play some rom games in the Ubuntu 17.04, I install mame and some roms, but do not know how to use the mame to run these roms, anyone can help me ? Tanks!
mame searches for ROMs in these directories:
$HOME/mame/roms /usr/local/share/games/mame/roms /usr/share/games/mame/roms
If you want to change that behaviour, edit the file
/etc/mame/mame.ini with sudo rights and add your desired path to the
rompath line, e. g. for your case:
This file is also the right choice to set other options permanently, e. g.
window 1 for window mode or
mouse 1 for mouse support.
You can download the emulators for the software that you need it, install and download the MAME ROMs and relax playing the games.
