Where are the emulators located on the card?

So I accidentally deleted the "Enter" mapping for AdvMame, and now when I go into the settings via the "tab" key, I cannot change anything. I know I can fix this by finding the cfg file in the AdvMame/Mame 106 folder, but all I can see on the card is the Roms folders, although I did see a couple Mame folders, but they were not Advmame/Mame 106. I am logging into the machine remotely, and not just pulling the SD card FWIW. Where is the Mame106 located?

AdvMAME is found in /home/pi/.advance

Unlike regular MAME AdvMAME has its key config in the main config file advmame.rc (or advmame.nosdl.rc depending on which you changed).

the dot in /home/pi/.advance means the directory is hidden. There should be a setting in your file browser to see the hidden files and folders.
