Curious about Player 3/4
« on: March 26, 2019, 02:37:55 pm »
I have a 2 player cabinet with some wireless Xbox pads used for 3 and 4 games. For those with a similar setup, are you just using Mame's "Input general" settings for the 3 and 4 player games. Or are you setting up all 3/4 games in "Input this game". Thanks

I set the 3/4 player in the General settings. I very rarely use Input This Game unless itís a specific set of controls.

Gotcha,   Presently just using the Input General settings as well. To have player 1 and 2 use the joysticks, I end up plugging  all four controllers in. This has to be done to set the Xbox lights to 3/4 then unplug the first two so player 1/2 use joysticks. Seemed the easiest way but just curious how others approached this. :dizzy:
