How to configure USB Joystick for MAme4All frontend?
« on: July 16, 2017, 11:40:15 am »
I have got most things up and running with a Raspberry PI and a USB joystick controller for making my own cabinet, but,

Only one thing left, I want to be able to select games using the "built in" frontend of Mame4all. I have searched everywhere but cannot find the syntax of the J_ entries in the mame.cfg file. It reads like this, and by changing J_A=0 to any other number 0-9 I can get any of my keys or joystick movements to start a highlighted game.

Buy, what is the syntax for moving up and down in the menu? I would have guessed J_UP and J_DOWN, but this is not the case...

Strange that the syntax is not explained anywhere, it probably is, but I cant find it. Anyone that can help? I know there are other frontends, but I prefer to configure this one.

#Joystick controls for frontend only
J_START=7
J_SELECT=6
J_A=0
AXIS_LR=0
AXIS_UD=1

How does the Joystick respond when you use Retropie?
"I really do feel pity for those who go out of their way to perform a personal slight, than taking the effort in joining the conversation and creating some useful dialogue which would benefit the persons' perusal of this topic.  Yet where would we be without the persistant antagonist?"
