Yeah I thought of that but my sticks are exclusif 8 ways :-(
Anyway, I just played with mame options and in the options, the controler was set to "default".
I changed that to "slikstik_quad", not because I have a slikstik (don't even know what that is lol), but because it was "quad"
And after doing so, the 4 ways games worked much better, pacman or pang were playable
But my guess would be that I'm stuck with a 4 ways, even for 8 ways games, so I need to set this 4 ways controller on each game individually.
Is there a way to quickly configure one specific type of controler for a selected game list, and leave the default for all the other games ?
Is there is 4 ways filter list available for mame ?
