Nomax, thank you so much and thank you for keeping nplayers alive all those years! A very important file and a noble project

I'm trying to do something about the long lost controls.ini.
I worked some more on my own parser that tries to cross info from MAME, history.dat and catver.ini, hoping that, by deduction, some of the missing controls can be deciphered. Out of the 36000+ games supported in 0.174, only 764 games got no info now. I'm refining the filters as I go but it's a big project because not all info seem to be available to decypher the precise type of control. Some are plain impossible without seeing a picture of the cabinet, because internally the hardware is the same, but in reality they are aesthetically different or used in non-standard ways.

I'll keep poking around and any pointers about controller information are welcome!

It will be packaged with the next version.

-Kris
