Running MAME on the Linx Vision?

Running MAME on the Linx Vision?

Postby ngchol » December 4th, 2016, 7:24 pm

Hello everyone,

has anyone got MAME running properly on their Linx Vision 8? I have a bit of a problem:


1) The controller is recognised by both MAME 0.153 and MALA.

2) There is no mapping for insert coin and start game.

3) MAME doesn't recognise the touchscreen keyboard, so I cannot press TAB to get to the configuration and reconfigure the controller for insert coin and start game.

Has anyone else got around this by editing the config/ini files manually? What do I need to do?

If I get time, I will see if I can dig out my old mame pc setup and try it.

It's ok - I connected an external keyboard to get access to the MAME configuration UI, and was able to map the controller buttons through that.
