here was the mameui.ini settings that were messed. i used these settings and ui game selection is perfect now.

The Navigation code is made up of four parameters:

Joy, control, axis/button, direction

joy I don't know what this actually does but it seems that for sticks, buttons and POVs it should always be set to 1.

control This determines the control type:
- 0 = Buttons
- 1 = Stick
- 2 = POV

axis/button This entry changes dependent upon the value for control.
- control = 0 This is simply the button number value. Note that these start from 1 which is different to ingame where they start from zero.
- control = 1 Axis number values 1 or 2. This is either the vertical or horizontal axis and varies from stick to stick. If your up and down controls move the game list from left to right and vice versa, this will need to swapped.
- control = 2 The POV axis is easiest to be considered as a button.

direction Value 0 for button or POV. For joystick only, values are 1 for negative and 2 for positive. If your up control moves down the list or vice versa this will need to be swapped. Same goes for left and right.

Joystick example:
Code:
#
# NAVIGATION JOYSTICK CODES
#
ui_joy_up                 1,1,2,1
ui_joy_down               1,1,2,2
ui_joy_left               1,1,1,1
ui_joy_right              1,1,1,2

Buttons example
Code:
ui_joy_button1            1,0,1,0
ui_joy_button2            1,0,2,0
ui_joy_button3            1,0,3,0
ui_joy_button4            1,0,4,0
ui_joy_button5            1,0,5,0
ui_joy_button6            1,0,6,0
ui_joy_button7            1,0,7,0
ui_joy_button8            1,0,8,0

POV example
Code:
#
# NAVIGATION JOYSTICK CODES
#
ui_joy_up                 1,2,0,0
ui_joy_down               1,2,1,0
ui_joy_left               1,2,3,0
ui_joy_right              1,2,2,0

Planning on gutting the bartop and replacing the mobo and psu with one of those small hp elitedesk 800 G2 micro machines. Gonna be more tidier and faster along with lower power consumption.
Anyone else using small form factor computer in cabs?

So managed to get some scrap freebies of hardware and gutted the cab and replaced mobo, psu, cpu and ram. Its got an enermax 350w psu and running a 3rd gen intel xeon e3-1225 v2 with 4gb ram on an msi h77ma-g43 mobo.
Considerably more powerful than the other cpus iv had in this cab and will be the final build for this cab. Igpu should be more than capable for crt shaders too. Could do with a smaller power supply in it but for free cant complain.
