I have MAME32 .84u2, Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, Sabrent 12-button Joypad.
I tried running it a week ago, and under the Tab menu, I'm unable to use the joypad to customize commands for the games, nor does the keyboard respond. I simply can't select anything on the menu. The "5" works for credit input and "1" works as start, but I cannot select characters or move. Oddly, MAME does recognize button input from the controller during the "Press any key to continue" intro screen. I have joypad input and mouse input both selected.
Previously, I was able to use both the keyboard and the joypad to set up games without problems. This was last June on my laptop. Everything was transferred directly over to my new desktop PC, and MAME on the laptop still works perfectly with this controller. The one difference was that I used the controller for Steam games on the desktop PC prior to playing MAME, though I believe I have eliminated the Steam controller profile.
On the off chance it's a system issue, I am having some problems with configuration on SNES9X and Fusion.
Thank you in advance for any help with this issue.
