GDP - Mame4Droid - Input Keys
« on: July 12, 2019, 05:28:16 am »
- I have GDP XD running Android 4.4.4 -
- I use MAME4droid (0.139u) loading arcade roms -[/center][/center][/center][/pre][/pre][/pre]

My problem:

Mapping of ?game start? button doesn?t work for all rom games

My settings:

In Mame4droid I select "Configure General Inputs", then select ?Player 1 Controls?, then I map the P1 Start button to ?Joy 1 Bt_F?. This is the R1 button on GDP.

My gameplay:

I select the game from my list. I press the COIN button on the top/left side of screen to load a credit. Then I press the ?R1? button to START the game.

Most games work with the ?R1? button to start game, but there are lots of games where you CANNOT start the game with the R1 button.

Any help or suggestions? Can I remap buttons for individual games? Thanks!

Jake

Hi!
I have a similar configuration. What I don?t understand is, if you use the ?coin? button on the screen, why don?t you use the ?start? Button on the right side of the screen? I remember having problems with coin and start too. In my case everything worked just fine except those two buttons, but I solved this problem. You said it?s only a problem with some games, which ones? Then I could have a look if they work on my gpd and if so we could compare our settings.
Regards

Hey Snikt!

My START button on the right-top of the screen doesn't work for games. I don't know if this is because I MAPPED the start key to my R1 key. The weird thing is that most games work, but not others.

Can you maybe share with me how you mapped your COIN and START button under CONFIGURE GENERAL INPUTS?

What happens if you SELECT a game and LAUNCH it? Once you're in the game, you can select OPTIONS, then SETTINGS, then INPUT, then EXTERNAL CONTROLLER, then DEFINE KEYS, then PLAYER 1, then you go START button and set it.

If you go into each individual game, can you set the COIN and START button for each game differently?

Thanks!

Hi! I use MAME4droid (0.139u1) with the matching rom set. In the settings/input/external controller/automap options I have the ?Thumbs as coin, start and L2, R2 disabled? ticked.

Ingame, OPTIONS/SETTINGS/INPUT/EXTERNAL CONTROLLER/DEFINE KEYS/PLAYER 1 is disabled by the automap option. (so it?s global and I don?t have any individual settings per game)
I turned of Coin, Start and Settings on my display so that it?s nice and clean. I can drop a coin by pressing L3 and Start by hitting R3.
In your case try Mode/Controller autodetection and Automap options/L1,R1 as Coon, Start and L2, R2 as L1, R1.
In Input there is a tick Box ?P4,P3,P2 as P1? this is unticked on my device.
I hope that helps, if not let?s try something else to find a solution.

Hey Snikt!

Thank you for all the great advice. I really appreciate it. I used all of your settings and it worked pretty well. I still have a few games that did not work, but I just went in and MANUALLY changed the INPUT configuration for the individual game by pressing L1 + R1 together at the same time.

Thanks again. I really appreciate it!

Jake
