Do you mean which emulator for what game?  At someone elses suggestion I tried to start a thread on AA about it but it didn't really catch on.  Instead every so often I now post a list of what I've got running where based on my own testing as well as feedback from others.  This one is a couple of months old now, it would be out of date for the release I just did today but will probably have some emulators you don't have in 3.5 in it:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WQOmcXWdgPSpxATfnt7RTs3nPqcWF-mvZQXwhnoQy5c
the list is auto generated (mainly) and doesn't show bios files (and maybe some parent roms I hide) that may be needed for some things to work.

Or do you mean which versions of the roms for each emulator?  In which case the best way to know if your roms will work for a particular emulator is to audit the roms against a datfile for that emulator using Romcenter or ClrMAMEpro.  On current builds there's datfiles for most of the mame versions (& fba) zipped in /boot/USER_GUIDE not sure if that will be there on 3.5.

Not sure if I'm answering usefully here, sorry.

I'm very happy to announce www.arpicade.com is now active.  It is a community hub for RaspberryJAMMA and ARpiCADE news, downloads and docs and also a forum to discuss using and improving ARpiCADE.

Massive thanks to Happswitch for putting a lot of hardwork into this.  He runs the ArcadeSDcafe website and I think his experience will make the site far better than anything I could have done myself.

It's early days yet so there may be some wrinkles to iron out but check it out.  It would be great to see some familar (and also new) names there.

To try and avoid the same situation as happened on AA with the topic getting too large to be able to find anything current I'm going to suggest that dee2eR create a new Topic and continually updates/edit's the first post with the latest status of the Arpikade hardware and software, I'll happily "Sticky" it as well.   No worries if you don't have time to do this, I did try and move one of your posts in this topic so that it would appear first but it just put it back in the same place.   Alternatively I can create a new Topic based on your last status update if you're happy for me to do so?

Reason for suggesting this is that this topic is now up to 11 pages, I still can't find some basic information like how much it costs, how can I order one, etc.  It might be buried in here but I can't see it.   It took me 10 mins to find if the latest version has a video amp in it or not!

The ARpiCADE 3.71 update is here!

This is an update for a ARpiCADE 3.7 SD card. There is just one file to download too (unless you also need to get the 3.7 image):
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6UOezdjM-2CZjF0QkFCZjhUMFE

3.71 UPDATE FEATURES:
Better resolution switching, 288p@50Hz and 256p@56Hz added
240p mode now progressive scan only mode (uses 240p, 256p and 288p)
Vertical low res progressive scan only mode added
Improvements to auto config system
AdvMAME 0.94 (a bit faster than later versions of AdvMAME, as it's based on earlier MAME code)
MAME 0.139 (libretro MAME 2010) (was already there before but can now be used at your own risk it's buggy and doesn't support saving high scores)
Samples folder moved to /boot/sample for easy access (all versions of MAME share sample folder)
Attract-Mode layouts moved to /boot/attract-layouts/ for easy access
2 more vertical Attract-Mode layouts included
Daphne launcher bug fixed
AdvMAME config improvements & hotkey bug fixed (+ can now switch between using 1.4 and 3.0 on a per rom basis in the launcher)
Better naming for game order in [emulator].lst files
Loading message universal file (easy consistant editing of loading message)
Graphical loading message can be enabled/disabled through above file using cusomisable loading images
Monitor setup colorbar and crosshatch sceens avilable through service menu (crosshatch only covers 480i/p and 240p currently)
Playstation memory card functionality and savestates should now work
Fixed visible console rom scanning script errors
New ARpiCADE logo (ohh such features, much wow)
General improvements I've forgotten the details of...

HOW TO UPDATE:
1. Download the update and unzip it.

2. Copy the file update.sh and the folder 371update with its entire contents to /boot/config-updater (on a SD card with ARpiCADE 3.7 installed)

3. Power up and you should be able to update from the service menu in Attract-Mode (cab service button or keyboard left/right until you find it) it will reboot when finished, the process will take a couple of minutes DO NOT power down while the update is running just wait for it to reboot. There is no feedback from the update as it is running.

4. (optional) After update & reboot you may need to run the system setup option you want from the service menu eg. High res vertical or 240p only horizontal etc. The update will not change the current resolution your system is running in (for your cabs safety). By default high res service menu options will be commented out in /boot/launchers/servMenu.sh after the upgrade, if you want to use them you can uncomment them in the file /boot/config-updater/371update/boot/launchers/servMenu.sh before running the update to make them available for you immediately after the update.

PLEASE NOTE:
The update script will modify the folder layout of your SD card, samples and layouts will be moved to /boot if there is insufficient available space on /boot this will probably break something, a fresh vanilla 3.7 image will be fine but otherwise please check the available space is enough (especially if you have the huge Toaplan samples in /home/pi/.advance/sample).

Please backup your SD card before running the update script in case of issues. ENJOY!

ARpiCADE 3.8 is out now!   (and a tiny update to 3.81)

ARpiCADE 3.8 new features:

- MAME 0.192 replaces 0.181 (sorry to any diehard 181 fans, if you exist, it's gone)

- MAME 192 and 172 SDL2 passing program keyboard input to the terminal in the background bug fixed (hacked around)
    (couldn't use the same fix for attract as it then breaks retroarch when launched from attract)

- new version of lr-MAME2003 (mame 078) with improvements to Midway DCS audio games

- Attract-Mode updated to version 2.3.0 (audio bug should be fixed too, for some reason the old version compiled without resampling enabled)

- general Linux system updates

- WiFi is now enabled by default (Pi3 is the only Pi with built in wifi, network settings need to be entered into /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf)
                               
- editing /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf can now be done from the service menu - keyboard required

- ssh now enabled by default (all standard Raspbian ssh details including password apply, password is raspberry)
    for more ssh info see here for Mac and Linux: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/remote-access/ssh/unix.md
                            OR here for Windows: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/remote-access/ssh/windows.md
    if your ssh shows no cursor try 'tput cnorm' 

- improved auto configs
           
- updated instructions and MAME datfiles included in /boot/USER_GUIDE/

- a couple of extra Attract-Mode themes (compared to previous full release)

3.8 is 4.35GB and will need to be extracted with 7zip (or other software that can handle .7z) to extract a .img image for an 8 gig SD card.
https://mega.nz/#!VyBjXBbY!bxEBtrsxzSRK31LQ4902OWxC0hLWGhRN0u95GM0fJmo

3.81 update fixes advmame controls if you change the setup to vert or high res (I forgot to back some files up in 3.8)
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1L3pScICDpz9RHQyqeD3ssY70BrZB-5Ws
HOW TO UPDATE:
1. Download the update and unzip it.

2. Copy the file update.sh and the folder 'home' with its entire contents to /boot/config-updater (on a SD card with ARpiCADE 3.8 installed)

3. Power up and you should be able to update from the service menu in Attract-Mode (cab service button or keyboard left/right until you find it) it will reboot when finished.

4. (optional) After update & reboot you may need to run the system setup option you want from the service menu eg. High res vertical or 240p only horizontal etc.

Enjoy!
