Arcade ROM paths

Five of the available arcade ROM paths in RetroPie are shared directories which are used by more than one emulator: arcade, mame-libretro, mame-advmame, fba, and neogeo. In order to successfully load zipped ROM sets in these locations you must specify the arcade emulator version which matches your ROMs.

To avoid having several menus for different arcade emulators, all arcade-based ROMs can be placed in the arcade ROM folder, but you will have to specify which emulator each zipped ROM set will use from the Runcommand Menu.
