having issues with mame controllers
#390781 - 05/01/21 04:47 AM


So bought a pack of 4 controllers off from amazon and I'm of course running into the trouble that the computer does not register the devices in the same order everytime

So I need to set it up as a stable controller.

Looking into it I've looked at my controllers from doing a verbose start

Input: Adding joystick #0: Generic USB Joystick (device id: Generic USB Joystick product_00060079-0000-0000-0000-504944564944 instance_27bd7f40-a85c-11eb-8001-444553540000)
Input: Adding joystick #1: Generic USB Joystick (device id: Generic USB Joystick product_00060079-0000-0000-0000-504944564944 instance_27bdcd60-a85c-11eb-8002-444553540000)
Input: Adding joystick #2: Generic USB Joystick (device id: Generic USB Joystick product_00060079-0000-0000-0000-504944564944 instance_27bdcd60-a85c-11eb-8003-444553540000)
Input: Adding joystick #3: Generic USB Joystick (device id: Generic USB Joystick product_00060079-0000-0000-0000-504944564944 instance_27c0daa0-a85c-11eb-8008-444553540000)



Which I gather would lead to this CFG file...


mameconfig version=”10”>
system name=”default”>
input>
mapdevice device=”Generic USB Joystick product_00060079-0000-0000-0000-504944564944 instance_27bd7f40-a85c-11eb-8001-444553540000” controller=”JOYCODE_1” />
mapdevice device=”Generic USB Joystick product_00060079-0000-0000-0000-504944564944 instance_27bdcd60-a85c-11eb-8002-444553540000” controller=”JOYCODE_2” />
mapdevice device=”Generic USB Joystick product_00060079-0000-0000-0000-504944564944 instance_27bdcd60-a85c-11eb-8003-444553540000” controller=”JOYCODE_3” />
mapdevice device=”Generic USB Joystick product_00060079-0000-0000-0000-504944564944 instance_27c0daa0-a85c-11eb-8008-444553540000” controller=”JOYCODE_4” />
input>
system>
mameconfig>


Except I keep getting a fatal error whenever I try to run my new config file.

I'm totally lost here on what I should do. Any advice or idea why it is giving me a fatal error on this config file?

This question comes up a lot. Even if you keep all your controllers plugged in, Windows will redetect and enumerate them differently on every bootup which if you ask me, shouldn't be happening.

I had to go through my browser history to find this video, it was posted recently but I forgot where. Anyway I believe this will be helpful to you:

/Edit oh.. duh, it's practically in the next post down.
