Does anyone have tips on customizing wahcade?

http://wahki.mameau.com/

Have a look at the configuration and extras sections of Wah!Ki. Let me know if anything is specifically missing and perhaps we can address it there.
Hey thanks for the link. I tried to sign up for the forums but am unable to complete the registrations due to the security question at the end. It seems mamedev is changing hosts, and the temp domain is also down. Also do you have pages about how to setup the artwork inside wahcade? I read that I should keep the artwork files in a .zip format into my /artworkfolder. However mahcade creates 3 separate folders for images it seems. Thanks!

If you are referring to:
- the artwork for use with the layouts (screenshots, videos, etc), wahcade/mahcade doesn't actually care where that is because you tell it through the ini files, they do need to be unzipped though
- the artwork for the layouts, they needs to go into the layouts directory unzipped
- the bezel artwork used by mame, they are generally zipped in the artwork directory under mame and have nothing technically to do with wahcade/mahcade

I keep getting this error when trying to run Wah!Cade:

Traceback (most recent call last) :
    File "wahcade.py" , line 81, in <module>
        app = WinMain(options)
    File "/usr/local/share/games/wahcade/win_main.py", line 300, in __init__
        self.load_emulator()
    File "/usr/local/share/games/wahcade/win_main.py", line 1078, in load_emulator
        self.load_list()
    File "/usr/local/share/games/wahcade/win_main.py", line 1121, in load_list
        self.pop_games_list()
    File "/usr/local/share/games/wahcade/win_main.py", line 1384, in pop_games_list
        self.emu_ini()
    File "/usr/local/share/games/wahcade/filters.py", line 369, in create_initial_filter
        gd = mi.next()
    File "/usr/local/share/games/wahcade/filters.py", line 271, in get_xml_game_item
        d['controller_type'] = _controllers[ctrl.attrib['type']]
KeyError: 'joy'

Any Ideas? THANKS!

Install Mah!Cade instead from mameau.com or the bzr version from launchpad. They both have the fix for this error implemented
