MSYS2 Unable to find /etc/pacman.conf

Hey, so I was trying to find a way to play neogeo/mame roms, one thing led to another, and now I’m trying to figure out how to use MSYS2. I’m trying to add a packet repository to /etc/pacman.conf but I’m not sure how to find it, or access it in general. I’m new to this system and the only experience I’ve had close to this is, quite literally, coding with ruby. Any help would be massively appreciated!

Your running MSYS2 in Windows?

From the MSYS2 installation instructions, you should have a C:\msys64 directory now. Is there a C:\msys64\etc directory? pacman.conf should be in there. It’s a text file so you can edit it to add repositories. Pacman on ArchWiki - section 2 for pacman.conf
