Re: Intermittent hotkeys problem

Is the USB rotary controller picked up as a joystick? If so it's possible it messes with the joystick order, possibly only the virtual joystick that's part of the hotkey system. Thanks, dee2eR. I'm pretty sure the rotary controller gets detected as a joystick, even tho it technically behaves more l...

Intermittent hotkeys problem

I’ve noticed that every few times I boot up my arcade cabinet, the hotkeys behaviors fail to operate as expected. For example, pressing P1 Start and P1 Button 1 at the same time does not register as a Coin insert. Likewise, pressing and holding P1 Start does not exit the game back to Attract Mode. W...

Re: Tab menu not working in MAME 037 or FBA

Yeah, still running 3.X. Was having some control mapping issues in FBA and 037, but I think I got them ironed out via the Retroarch configs. I was just wondering why Tab menus weren't working for me. If you get a chance, let me know if the Tab menu works in 037 for you, so at least I'll know if it's...

Tab menu not working in MAME 037 or FBA

I can't use the Tab key to activate the settings menu in games running under MAME 037 or FBA. How can I enable it? Also, I'm not able to locate the folder where the default and per-game .cfg files are stored for FBA. I see the .cfg files in ~/.mame037/mame2000/cfg for MAME 037, but I don't know wher...

Re: Advmame games booting with scrambled graphics

Gotcha. Well, I'll see if Joust2 will run under MAME 172 for now.

In the meantime, I'd be curious to know if you are able to reproduce the behavior yourself by launching the game in vertical mode under AdvanceMAME (106).

Thanks, dee2eR!

Re: Advmame games booting with scrambled graphics

Yes, I'm running the version of advmame.rc with the rotation fix. What I noticed in looking at the updated file is that lines like this one (line 121) have been commented out: # aconfig="-cfg advmame.nosdl.rc -display_mode medium_640x480 "$rormonitor and replaced with (line 122): aconfig="-display_m...

Re: MAME2003/MAME078 Control problem

Do you have access to the second partition? Yes, I have wifi and ssh set up, so I can access all files. Unfortunately the joystick order may not be respected as the config files should have already been setup right for the RaspberryJAMMA. Keeping the Ultimarc joysticks in the config but making them...

Re: Advmame games booting with scrambled graphics

I recently re-imaged my RPi w/ a fresh 3.X image, and I've gotten most everything working, except I noticed in retesting various games I had issues with previously that Joust2 is back to displaying scrambled video on my vertical-aspect hi-res (480p) monitor :(. I remember having this working before,...

Re: MAME2003/MAME078 Control problem

That occurred to me too, and I checked that again myself today by connecting the rotary controller to my PC and running the Ultimarc WinIPAC utility. However, the utility reports that the board is already running in keyboard mode, so I'm not sure why the RPi is detecting it as a 'joystick'. Thanks ...

Re: MAME2003/MAME078 Control problem

from your other thread it sounded line the rotary controller was simulating a keyboard so this issue never occurred to me. If you can stop the roatary controller sending joystick events by reflashing it as keyboard only it may fix the issue That occurred to me too, and I checked that again myself t...
