This file contains all the config for advmame including the key mapping. Look for entries like input_map if your file contains the x...

Re: mario bro on my PI

That screen looks very good, does the LCD Driver board plug in via the GPIO, does it need extra power?

May I ask how much the screen and driver were?

Re: MAME4ALL for Pi

Just installed 1.4 which allows you to mark roms as favourite by pressing 5 they are read/written too a text file.

i don't think mice are supported, but it would be a great addition.

Squish,

Nice cab, I recently built a small cab myself and used a low res 7inch screen via composite. The last mod I made was to add some small buttons to control the coin in. Do you run in free play mode?

Re: MAME4ALL for Pi

MAME 0.37 only supports 6 buttons. Additionally I mapped 9 to Key1 (or Key2 on joystick2), 11 to Key5, 8 to KeyESC. These match my Saitek joystick. Only way to customise those is to edit the code.. I had a quick look at the code in src/rpi/input.cpp at joyprocess and can see where you have mapped t...
