  • Got UltraStiks?
Edit: cleaned up first post to be more realistic in today's world.

Hello.  In my first attempt at actually contributing to this fine forum instead of just take, take, taking, I have written a plugin for MaLa 1.0RC8 (and above).  This plugin keys on the game selection, game start, game end, and emulator selection events and will apply map files (.ugc files) to your UltraStiks before a game is started and after a game has exited.


Installation consists of the following steps:



This plugin calls UltraMap.exe which is supplied by and may be downloaded from Ultimarc's website.  The PATH environment variable no longer needs to be modified to include the path to UltraMap.


Good luck!

Nice job, fatfingers!

I should be getting my UltraStiks next week so I'll miss out on all the bug squashing. ;)

Then, spend about 3.5 weeks generating all of your .ugc files
There must be a way to autogenerate this for most games, no? Maybe not for an oddball like Q-Bert, but most 4/8/analog.

There is certainly a way and I'm working on it, but it may only work for mame v.106 since the xml format between that and .108 seems to have changed and I currently am using .106.

Fatfingers,
From the way I understamd the plugin technology works, there should be a record available to your plugin that contains info about the selected/launched game (see below).

See the below excerpt from the Mala Plugin SDK pdf.

I think, instead of having UGC files for every game, maybe you can create the standard configs - ie, 8way.ugc, 4way.ugc, etc - and based on what is in "InputControl: Pchar; : Control type (mame.xml)" - you can call the correct UGC.

I haven't tried it, but it seems possible.

What do you think?

Quote

TEventGame = record
Description: Pchar; : Name of the game

Plugins in MaLa are new in version 1.0 RC8.  There are certain events that plugins can be called for (like game selection, game start, game end, etc.).  This particular plugin is used upon game start and game end to apply appropriate map files to Ultimarc Ultrastik joysticks so that the joysticks will operate in 4-way mode if it is a 4-way game, 8-way if an 8-way game, etc.

Solved, I guess.  Since my machine is pretty pristine, I had to statically link the CRT into my plugin or the plugin wouldn't truly load.

I have the code for the 'Delphi' version of the plugin and all I do is rename the built LEDWizControl.dll to LEDWizControl.mplugin and mala finds it when it is the plugin folder ok.  I don't know about C++

I do believe I have the next version working now.  Changes include:

  • No longer need maps for all games.  Instead, the InputControl field of the MaLa event is used to determine what map to apply to the sticks (thanks, edge!).  If no joysticks are in this field, then no maps are applied.
  • The plugin will first check to see if there is a specific map file for the rom name before using the InputControl field to determine the map name.  This allows for things like having one 4way.ugc file for all 4way games, but also for a qbert.ugc file that allows for qbert to have a slightly different map file than the standard 4way.ugc
  • Added ability to assign the MaLa map file at MaLa start time. (mala.ugc)
  • Added ability to assign a map at MaLa exit time. (malaexit.ugc)

I may still have to work out what the best way is to invoke the UltraMap program.  Currently you basically have to install it in your MaLa folder.   >:(

I'm a little sleepy right now so I will post more details/where to get the plugin tomorrow.

Another bonus is Developers/users can develop plug-ins for hardware or other features without the MaLa main code being altered or SWINDUS necessarily being involved.

Check if a file for a rom exists and if not use a default file for this game like the mala.ugc file.

Enable the debug log in MaLa and watch the log. There are a lot of information about loading the plugins. To show your plugin properly in MaLa implement the PluginName and PluginCopyright function.

EDIT: Hmm, I should read the complete thread before posting ....
Good work fatfingers!  :applaud:

This plugin is now working very well for me.  If there is anyone out there that would like to give it a try, I'd like to see how it works on someone else's machine before I send it out to the masses.  Please PM me if you're interested in giving this a go.

Thanks!

I haven't ordered my Ultrastiks yet, so I can't beta test or I'd offer to, but I just wanted to voice my appreciation for your efforts. :)

Your solution now sounds very reasonable, as you can leave the default Mala map as an 8-way and then only deal with the occasional oddball ROM that needs some settings tweaks or missing info added.

Sorry about that.  If you read the whole post I ran into the same issue when I tried it at home.  The issue is one of C Runtime DLLs existing or not existing on your machine.  I have solved this issue in the latest plugin.  However, I have not posted that plugin yet as I have been waiting for beta testers before posting for general availability.  If you're willing to give beta testing a shot (this plugin works like magic on my machine), then please let me know.  The one caveat is that I cannot set you up until I get home and I will not be home until Sunday at the earliest.

Oh, one last thing, I have now removed the plugin attachment from the first post.

The cab my UltraStiks are going into is still bare MDF, don't wait on me, I'm not likely to be ready to test anything for another month or two at best. :)

No problem.  Just waiting for anyone to volunteer.

I'll volunteer.   I've got 2 ultrastiks.  I've already set one up and going to do the other one sometime this weekend.

Great, I can hopefully send you the package Sunday night.  If not then, Monday.

Wow - great thread!  I'm looking at a Ultimarc 360 right now and this would be a perfect solution!

Was this plugin ever released?  I would like to try it out but I didn't see where to download it.

Funny you should ask today.  I just sent a message to swindus today so he can post the plugin for download.  When he has it posted, I will update this message with details.

I have it on good word loadman's word  ;D that Swindus is MIA.  So, I have attached the plugin and instructions to this message.  I hope that's not a misuse...when Swindus returns and posts the plugin I will remove these attachments.

The first one is a .txt file of installation/usage instructions.  The 2nd one is a .rar file that must be renamed (just remove the .txt from the end of it).

Let me know how things go!


Edit: That didn't work (renaming rar file) so I removed the attachments.
