At one time following the input rewrite from several years ago, MAME applied a 4-way diagonal A->D input map for Q*bert by default. This meant that those who had analog joysticks such as the Ultimarc U360 would be mapped in the same orientation as the original joystick (which was just a "normal" 4-way joystick rotated 45 degrees on the control panel). Then more recently, some changes were made that took this benefit away.

Without speaking for Tafoid, I believe his recent change is an attempt to meet in the middle; now the joystick is treated as an 8-way to allow for diagonal inputs to be mapped and used once again.

And by the way, many thanks to Tafoid for unearthing this one! Hopefully it's better now.
