X Arcade Joystick Question

Post by Game Guru » Thu Feb 07, 2002 12:30 pm

Hi<p>
Just setup my Arcade X Joystick but something really strange is happening??

<p>

If I run a game the default keys in MAME are set to the arrow keys, I have to go into each game and change the settings to use the arrow keys on the numeric keypad??

<p>

So the up,down,left,right show up as NUM2, NUM8 etc etc....

<p>

Sometimes when I press an arrow key on the number keypad it displays as say 'Right Arrow' ??

<p>

It's all a bit strange as I know that the normal default position keys (Arrows) should just work....

<p>

Wondering if my keyboard is not setup right?

<p>

Any help would b great...

<p>

Thanks

<p>

the hotrod setup uses the numpad you might try setting hotrod=yes or hotrodse=yes in mame.cfg (note i'm going by memory on the switch names) but then the fire buttons might be different...

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe what is occuring with the NUM/arrow keys is an issue with the NUM lock. Mess around with it.
