SDL joysticks with kxmame?

  • Timothee Groleau

    Hi there,

    I'm having problems using my gamepads with kxmame. When using xmame at the command line, I use the option "-jt 5" and it works fine. However, when I select SDL joystick in the configutaion options, when I launch my game, I hit an error: "joytype 2 is not available". How do I force kxmame to use joytype 5 instead? I'm using 2.0 beta with xmame 0.106 on gentoo.

    Thanks in advance!

      Have you try to select different joystick in the config? If none works, it might be a bug.

      Thanks for the suggestion to try joytype 5, btw, I was having a Hell of a time trying to get this working.
