Hello, I'm new to this forum and this is my first post.
I'm from Germany and I hope my english will be at least understandable since english isn't my mother language.
I just bought myself a Raspberry Pie and installed Recalbox OS on it. Recalbox is an OS made for emulating various game consoles and arcade machines as you probably know. Therefore it also includes an emulator for MAME.
During my search for information about the various MAME versions etc. I stumbled over this forum and fell in love with it. While I was reading several post I saw screenshots from some old games that were emulated by MAME. Games from my childhood (I'm 43) I already forgot about. That was the point I decided to dive deeper into the MAME-Universe and I hope I will get answers to my questions here and probably can help others when I am more experienced myself.
Maybe there are some people here that also using Recalbox or Retro Pie on their Raspberry but I think I also will test MAME on my home PC since the Recalbox thing will be limited to an old version/ROM-Set for MAME and I haven't found out yet, if its possible to downgrade newer ROMS to make them compatible to an older emulator version.
