GroovyMame controls issues//JammASD & Keyboard
« on: June 01, 2023, 09:32:55 pm »
So. Since I give away my JPAC I bought a JammASD adapter for my Super Neo 29, unfortunately I've been running with some issues using GroovyMame I've been working around with a fix but I cant get it work with my actual adapter, GroovyMame does not recognize my keyboard and adapter when "In-Game" don't even show up in "Configuration" and can't navigate through the Mame menu. What I have done 'till now is I have been deleting actual "ctlr" folder placing inside the "Default" ones. Switching the usb cable from my adapter to another port but what has worked so far is copying a Mame.exe file from Mame folder and replacing with the one inside the GroovyMame folder. Although it works and it recognize all my usb/bluetooth keyboards/mouse (My actual keyboard is connected through bluethooth) the GroovyMame switchres does not work and and it just initialize as a "normal" Mame build without swtichesRes.

Some extra information: JammaASD was working with past GroovyMame version. 0.234 for example, suddenly with newer Mame versions it stop working. JammASD works as an extra keyboard (use same control enconder as JPAC but under the name JammASD Keyboard).

Really appreciate any help I'm really loosing my mind I haven't been able to play for a while  :cry:
