  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
Might be the most basic question ever asked on here.  I've spent the last week updating my old system with a new pc, got a new version of MAME working and got MaLa finally working and all configured the way I want.  My final step is to get rid of the ugly default layout.  I found some on the MaLa website that I like but can't for the life of me find out how to change from the default to one of the custom layouts.  On their website page with the free uploaded layouts it says "How to install a Layout?" with nothing but a blank space under it.  Searched online and the best I could come up was a youtube video in Spanish.  I'm guessing this is so basic that nobody even talks about it and that is why I can't find anything.  Sorry for the stupid question but I'm a 20 handicapper when it comes to this.

Thanks in advance.

Because I am at least a 20 handicapper I could use a source with specific directions like "look for this file, open it, click xyz" etc.  I would be more than happy to pay someone who would take the time to help walk me through setting up a layout with video snaps etc.  Thanks

Shipping something from the U.S. to Canada for repair/exchange?  Please use USPS to avoid (additional?/excessive?) shipping charges.  PM me if you have any questions.

Glad I could help and thank you for the business.
I'm really happy with how your layout turned out.

Enjoy and thanks again.
