Can't use a joystick in the GUI.
#334485 - 11/16/14 12:12 AM


Hey guys, I think I might need some help. I recently bought an Arcade Joystick (Genius Arcade F-1000) and although I can play games with it perfectly, I can't use it in the GUI.
I can move my ship/character/whatever around, fire/jump/turn, etc, start/pause/insert coin, exit, navigate the on-screen menus, etc. But, in the GUI all can do is start a game by pressing the first button on my joystick, I can not move up/down the game list.
The option to "allow game selection by a joystick" is enabled,. but I doesn't quite work...

BTW, MAMEUI64 .155

Also, I would very much appreciate if someone could tell me what exactly these values mean (maybe If I knew I could play around with them until I get it to work):

#
# NAVIGATION JOYSTICK CODES
#
ui_joy_up 1,1,1,1
ui_joy_down 1,1,1,2
ui_joy_left 1,1,2,1
ui_joy_right 1,1,2,2
ui_joy_start 1,0,1,0
ui_joy_pgup 2,1,2,1
ui_joy_pgdwn 2,1,2,2
ui_joy_home 0,0,0,0
ui_joy_end 0,0,0,0
ui_joy_ss_change 2,0,3,0
ui_joy_history_up 2,0,4,0
ui_joy_history_down 2,0,1,0
ui_joy_exec 0,0,0,0

Someone please help. I need it so I can play games with my PC connected to my big TV without having to get up every time i wanna select a diff. game.

thx in advance!

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, it didn't help. I still can't move up or down, even after tweaking the values

if u get desperate u could probably just try every combination of the numbers 0, 1 and 2 in fields until you find it. you would need to quit mameui each time inbetween changes to the numbers, change the 'ui_joy_up' values in mameui.ini, save, then reload mameui to retest.

so start with ui_joy_up 0,0,0,0 then 0,0,0,1 then 0,0,0,2 then 0,0,1,0 then 0,0,1,1 then 0,0,1,2 and so on (any maths guys here can say how many combinations in total he will need to try?)

I believe it's 3^4=81 possibilities...
Not sure if I wanna try 81 combinations...(although some are automatically discarded, 'cause they make no sense)
