Problems with Ultimarc U360 from version 248
« on: November 17, 2022, 05:00:52 pm »
Starting from version 248 of groovymame my Ultimarc U360 does not work correctly - buttons attached to U360 PCB works but joystick directions does not. Official mame 249 works fine on the same computer. Also all other emulators works fine.

This is probably caused by the rawinput feature for joysticks, currently only in GourMAME & GroovyMAME. I don't have a U360 here to test. Maybe it's a matter of remapping the joysticks in MAME's ui, can't say. If nothing works, simply modify the joysticks provider option in mame.ini from auto (rawinput) to other api.
Important note: posts reporting GM issues without a log will be IGNORED.
Steps to create a log:
 - From command line, run: groovymame.exe -v romname >romname.txt
 - Attach resulting romname.txt file to your post, instead of pasting it.

Sadly even remapping is not possible. I'll try other provider.

EDIT. winhybrid solves the problem. Thanks for help Calamity :)

Happens here too with arduino encoder.

winhybrid and dinput works as well changing joystickprovider from auto

I wonder if firmware in such devices could be altered to work with raw input  ::)

Haynor,

I'm talking with Monkeypox about a possible fix. Could you try commenting out this line please?

I'm compiling mame with this line commented. I matter of two hours I'll test this solution.
