Help using my te fightstick on mame


#1

so i got mame .119 and i was trying to get it to work with my TE stick but its not working. ok so heres the stupid part.

my stick works on my comp i checked the control panel hardware gaming controls thingy and it works perfectly. so i searched and i hear people saying use joy2key. so i downloaded that and configured everything and i tested it on notebook and it works. so i open mame hit tab and set all the keys to what i had the joystick set to but it STILL didn’t work. but whats really stupid about this is when i use my keyboard it works… what the hell is going on!!!

oh and when i start mame is says like unable to absolute joystick 0 or something like that.

Much better emulator / Much better online play / Mame sucks xD

Mame emulator is better…

I had that problem and to be honest it just seems random because now my TE works on it too, all I did was just close the program and then re-opened it and it worked :S

Thought I heard Mame was better for everything that isn’t 3rd Strike?

You have to specify you’re using a joystick in MAME; by default, it doesn’t look for one. Look in your front end’s settings, or if using command line, add ‘-joystick’.

it should just work, hit tab to map the keys for your game.

If it doesn’t, get xpadder and then map your joystick to keyboard keys like wasd and etc.

If u dont mind using another verison of MAME then try this one,

MAMEUIFX - Download

I use MAMEUI and it works perfectly for 3rd strike as far as I can tell, the netplay for mame is pretty shoddy I have to admit. GGPO asks for some very specific roms but netplay is great from what I hear.

Also like Toodles said, you have to go to options->enable joystick input in MAME.
