Try moving that Last INPUT section (at the very end of the file) up above the <SYSTEM> section.

Mame can sometimes be very sensitive to the position of elements in the XML (shouldn't be, but I seem to recall having issues with that in the past).

I don't have time to test right now, but I'll take a look this weekend.

If that turns out to be the case, I think I might add logic to always FORCE the system element to the end of the file.

Maybe you need to specify the full path to the file whereever you have ControllerRemap.exe being run inside Hyperspin. The default dir might not be what you think it is.

That's the only thing I can think of.

That won't help because even if ControllerRemap could read it, mame won't find the cfg file.

In Hyperspin, where you've added config to run controllerRemap, you'll need it to look something like

c:\mame\utilities\ControllerRemap.exe /remap:c:\mame\ctrlr\mycontroller.cfg

Ie specify the full path to where you've got controllerremap and where the CFG file is.

okay so after a lot of tinkering i got to this point

hyperspin is loading the file  and i see the controllerremap is saving the right cfg according to the log

2014-11-29T16:51:54
ControllerRemap Utility v0.0.11.0 - For Mame
(c) 2011 drventure Enterprises

2014-11-29T16:51:54 Scanning and processing files in C:\Hyperspin\emulators\Mame\ctrlr\myConfig.cfg
2014-11-29T16:51:54 Processing file C:\Hyperspin\emulators\Mame\ctrlr\myConfig.cfg
2014-11-29T16:51:54    Treating as a Mame cfg file...
2014-11-29T16:51:54    No changes.

the UI controls do work and i able to navigate around and start a game

now the only problem lies in actually getting the game controls to work it seems like none of the buttons are mapped within the game

here is my XML file
Code: [Select]

Can you run controllerremap /list and post the results here?

I might be able to figure what's wrong from that and your remap file.

I apologize. I mispoke.

I need you to run

ControllerRemap.exe /save

This will create a controllerremap.map file in the current dir.

If you can post THAT file, I should be able to tell what's up.

Thanks

Hi, I think I'm getting close to figuring this out, but I'm having trouble with the -ctrlr command with MAME.  Anytime I add the "-ctrlr MyArcade" command to the command line (along with other commands I'm using) MAME just refuses to start.  Even if I point it to one of the preexisting controller files (e.g. "-ctrlr xarcade").  So this isn't necessarily a problem with the controller remap utility, but I was wondering if anyone knew what to do with this?  Thanks.

I am trying to get this working but am having trouble right off the bat.  I am getting XML/Java errors, even when I try to remap the sample.cfg file without any changes.

Finally getting to a few of these posts. Sorry for the long delay.

@Zero_Koop

I think the command line needs the file ext, like this

Mame ribbit –ctrlr MyArcade.cfg

Also, keep in mind that if there's ANYTHING wrong with the xml formatting in the CFG file, mame won't load it or will lock up.

If in doubt, there's tons of XML verifiers online you can upload your file to to verify the format.

Maybe my guide was a bit too long for consumption....
Up to me neck in another project atm, but as soon as clear of this and have moved house - I'll look at knocking together a GUI for this. Thinking summer. In the mean-time... persist fellas! I nearly gave up, but once it clicks, it's a doddle (although you gotta be very meticulous).

@Milhouse

Unless, I'm misunderstanding you, that won't work.

The Sample.cfg file that comes with mame wouldn't have any controller remap entries in it to begin with, so there wouldn't be anything that ControllerRemap could do. To be honest, I'm not sure what it would do, so it throwing an error in that case might be "by design" (Heh, yeah, I'll go with that! :) )

At any rate, grab the download and read through the first part. I know it's not the easiest utility to work with, but I just didn't feel like completely reinventing Mame's controller configuration UI (and that's pretty much what I'd have to do to create even a remotely decent UI for it.)

Just take it one step at a time. If you have a specific stick you want to get working, concentrate on just that one device at first, get it mapping the way you expect, then move on.

Pay particular attention to getting a LIST of your devices at first. the /LIST command will ID your devices and let you know what you've got to work with.

Pipe that to a file, and you can copy an paste device id's, makes that a lot easier.


And definitely check out Stigzler's info. As soon as I get the time, I was going to incorporate his info into the main readme.

@Bsong

I loaded up your test files and tried it out. Everything appears to get rewritten the way I'd expect it to.

Check out the /system/input section in the CFG file (actually, the verion you posted has the rewritten entries.

When you say it doesn't work, are you referring to from MAME or when MAME is run via hyperspin?

I'd first try running MAME directly from the command line.

It almost sounds like you just don't quite have Hyperspin configured properly to execute MAME with the right command to tell it the proper CFG file to use.

be sure to specify

-ctrlr myconfig.cfg

(ie make sure you add the file extension as I believe it's required by MAME).

Let me know how it goes!

Great! Glad to hear it.

Yeah, you have to configure the mame command line right or it won't know to read your config file.

the various frontends are all a little different in how you specify command line options for mame, so it can sometimes be trial and error to get things just right.

Dr.Venture,
thanks for your great idea and implementation. However, I am currently having problems running the tool on my WinXP64 cabinet.

System: XP64 Professional Version 2003, SP2, Installed is .Net 3.5.21022.08

"ControllerRemap.exe /list" in the command line works fine.
"ControllerRemap.exe /save" results in a popup saying: "ControllerRemap has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." and a nonspecific error report is made available for sending to MS.

Any ideas, has anyone tested the tool under XP64? Win7x64 works fine, BTW.

Maybe an older version would be working?

EDIT 2015-04-11 15:40 - Updated to .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (3.5.30729.1) and everything is working fine now! ;D

I was just going to ask about theframework version installed.

Glad to hear you get it going

I actually still have xp on my cabinet,  so I was pretty sure it worked.

Have fun!

This app is amazing. I was able to set up my four player cp in under a hour. Thanks so much!

A question, though. If I wanted to change the controls for a specific game, can I do that through Mame with the Input (game) option, or do I make a new Map for the game only, and have it load up. Right now I use Hyperspin parameters to load my CRG_MyRemap file and it works perfectly.  For games like MK and Tron, where I might want to use different controllers on my CP instead of the default settings I made. Thoughts?

Thanks chap.

Have recently updated to 0.6 and this deals with per-game settings. No need to mess about with multiple CRemap .cfg files - it stores them all in your default one. Maybe download this and go from there? You should just be able to point it at your existing CRG_MyRemap file.

See here for more info:

Hi Stigzler

I'm having a weird issue with my cabinet. ControllerRemap GUI works, I can set all of my controls, write a CRG_MyRemap, and all is good. Then I shut off the cabinet.
Come back an hour later and of course the IDs are now different in Mame, and nothing works. It is still loading CRG_MyRemap, but still nothing.
Yesterday I set up my controls via the GUI, and it worked fine. Today I started it up, and had to reconfigure all of the controls via GUI again.

So my question is, what did I miss? My thinking was that ControllerRemap keeps the raw code of each control so Mame will have to use it no matter what the ID is. Any insight you can provide would save me from banging my head against the wall. I would hate to have to set my controls every time I turn the machine on.

Ok. Firstly, post your myremap file after the first setup and then at then at the time of fail. Secondly, if you can do this in the specific ctrlremapgui thread refd above as were cluttering dr ventures thread.

EDIT: oh. Another thought. Make sure there are no controls in the default.cfg or any game specific cfg files in your mame/cfg folder.
