Need help making FFWD behave as a toggle
« on: November 23, 2018, 11:54:59 pm »
I'm pretty sure there is no setting to make MAME's FFWD functionality work as a toggle instead of having to hold down the button, without recompiling the code.
Could somebody tell me what I would need to change in the code to make this happen?

Notice that I'm referring to FFWD not throttle, which does behave as a toggle.

Thanks in advance.

I ended up using AHK to implement the toggle functionality when pressing the FFWD key.  Luckily, no messing around with the code and custom builds were needed.
