The /home directory is a local mount point - e.g. files/folders located on the same drive as the OS and HBMAME.
The /mnt directory can have remote mount points - e.g. shared network drives where files/folders are remote to the OS and HBMAME

Good idea. I tried it out with a MAME I compiled this morning, and it works just fine from a remote mount point. For example:

WORKS:
$ mame64 pacman -rompath /mnt/shoegazer/roms pacman

Yesterday I tried doing a "git bisect" for you in an attempt to find the exact commit that caused the problem; however the older builds of HBMAME don't appear to compile with "make TARGET=hbmame". Can you tell me what I can use for a build from say December 2016?
