Title: Does any one have Mame Keyboard Mappings that doesn't use CTRL ALT or SHIFT?
Post by: rsoden on January 19, 2022, 05:24:05 pm
Does anyone have a list of keyboard mappings for mame that doesn't use ALT CTRL or SHIFT?

Every time I have 3 or 4 players using my cab MAME loses focus kicking people into windows. I have disabled the windows key and I am pretty sure the losing focus is from too much button mashing with the modifier keys.

My next step is to remap the buttons in MAME for the 3rd and 4th Player and then remap the ipacs in my cab. But before I do I thought I would ask if anyone has a good mapping that cures the crashing and works well in general.

thanks

There's a list of unused keys at the bottom of the image.
Fix the yellow overlaps and the five modifier keys.
1. Overlapping defaults
There's an overlap in the I-Pac4 defaults for P2B5-P2B8 and P3 Joystick. (both use I, K, J, and L)

2. Modifier keys
Good advice from BadMouth here (http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,149393.msg1559496.html#msg1559496).

There are five default MAME "modifier" keys that can cause problems:
- P1B1
- P1B2
- P1B4
- P3B1
- P3B2
