Disable joystick R+Start / Tab Menu

Happy New Year!

I believe this has been discussed but cant seem to find the post again. I had a Holiday party here recently and there where a bunch of kids and they kind of ended up messing up some of the buttons by getting in to the menus 😛 on my cabs with Arpicades, so I would like to disable getting into the MAME set up screen by pushing right and P1 start at the same time and just use a keyboard if I need to get into it. So I cant remember if there was a way to disable all setting but using the joystick and buttons or do I have to change the TAB command to something else in the button configs?

The easiest way is to delete the relevant line in /boot/hotkeys.ini you may want to make a copy of the original before editing just in case.
