AdvanceMAME 3.4 has been released with a lot of enhancements for the Raspberry Pi.
I got a message that it wasn’t working, so I recompiled a version JUST for the Raspberry Pi Zero. This is meant to run on the latest version of Jessie with Pixel.
To Install and play, run these commands from the command line
sudo dpkg -i advancemame_3.4-1_armhf.deb advmame
This will install and create your AdvanceMAME folders. Now place your ROMs in:
advmame romname example: advmame sf2
AdvMAME should now start playing your game file.
