how to create custom mame cfg files with mame 0.195?

Hey Guys!

the last time I actively used mame was mame 0.140.

Back then I used a Software called CFG Magician (

What this software was able to do is:

My joystick Layout is:


with this software i could create controller configs like:

Every 6 button game should use:


Every 4 button game should use:


4 Button Neo Geo Games should use:


3 Button games should use:


Unfortunately this software doesn't work anymore with the latest mame because it uses Data files and on the download page the latest data files are 0.141

Does somebody have datafiles for 0.195 or knows another solution/software I can use?
