Why No LED light with LEDBlinky and MAME ?
« on: March 20, 2020, 01:56:22 pm »
Hi everyone,

I'm trying to get LEDBlinky running but I haven't had any luck so far ...   :-\

My setup is:

PACLed64  (USB + 5V power connected)
IPAC_2
GroovyMAME 0.183b


I already did:

- changed "UI Output" in mame.ini to "windows".
  MAMEOutputTest  gets the information of which game is started and stopped via MAME but button presses are not listed there ...
  just monitor orientation
- In Generate LEDBlinky InputMap PacLED64 (Controller ID=1) ACTIVE and MAPPED is "YES".
  I've set Port 1 (P1B1) as LED Type "RGB-Green" KEYCODE_ENTER   (in MAME button 1 is set to ENTER) and it lightens up when
  the button is chosen (LEDs are also working in SimpleLEDTest)
- Added a game "gunsmoke" under the mame emulator in LedBlinky Controls Editior with P1_BUTTON_1 and a green LED.

LEDBlinkyTroubleshooter does not work. The "Debug.log" is created when LedBlinky.exe is started but the Time/Date written as "03.20.2020" which LEDBLinkyTroubleshooter alerts as "03.20.2020 is not a valid date".

What can be the problem that there is not lightened up LED when starting gunsmoke ?

 Debug.log:

« Reply #1 on: March 24, 2020, 05:47:38 pm »
When I use the MAMEOutputTest.exe it seems MAME just sends out ...

- MAME Start
- which rom is openened
- display orientation
- pause (on)  / pause (off)
- MAME Stop


How do I get the buttons pressed sent out ?

Would be really nice if anyone could help me ....  :(

Thanks in advance,
