As previously stated, as MAME 0.37b5 or 0.37b11 are not working (which should work with MAME4ALL) I am guessing the Image is using AdvanceMAME by default. I did post a while back on some of the correct revisions of ROMS required for AdvMAME
Here - http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 78&t=29427
It contains the Game Name, MAME File Code, Revision and if samples are required. If they work then obviously Retro Pie is running AdvMAME.
If you still experience problems then I suggest trying Shea's PiMAME (another Gaming Image) which includes, amongst other emulators, puddings 'optimised' PiMAME4ALL and AdvanceMAME.

ROM Dumps on the Net 'pre-date' MAME in that they were for owners of the original cabs to repair defective Boards by burning their own IC's. Also, many games (like VF2) were sold to vendors and then newer 'versions' were purchased as 'updates' on small sister Boards to add to the original Cab so I think its a bit of a 'Legacy' issue. Similarly GCC's 'Crazy Otto' (which Midway officially licenced and became Ms Pac-Man See Here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEKAqWk-Tp4
, which didn't please NAMCO!) or 'Super Missile Command' were also 'Sister Boards' for the original Cabs so they only contain those specific ROM files.
