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.

Welcome to MA.
I have used Retro Pi. I happen to attain the proper romset at the time, but this link may help you out.

Welcome !

Yeah this is a nice forum, and I think you'll find the answers to all your questions there, I myself just subscribed to it and was able to mount a nice full set on my PC with a not so old version of MAME.

Since you seem to use Recalbox and I was on the verge on trying it, is it easy to configure and use without to much bugs or user-unfriendly configurations ? I'm thrilled by the technical marvel that it represents but I do not want to pay too much euros for something which would be a pain in the @!#?@! to configure and use...
