Can't use a joystick in the GUI.
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):

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!
