    Default Setting up Xbox 360 controller w/ Mame?

    I am confused about some of the Mame controller settings. What do settings such as right/left, right/right mean? What should the controls be set to with my xbox 360 controller? There are also a ton of other settings that I haven't gotten to yet, but am sure I will get stumped on also. Is there documentation available that will help clarify all settings in Mame, and how I should set it up on my controller?

    some games use dual joysticks. right/left would be left on the right joystick. right/right would be right on the right joystick.

    Honestly, I love the Xbox 360 controller... but I never could use it for MAME. You will never get the right feel in games using digital/analog inputs for most games.

    That makes sense. Looks like a lot of the controls are fairly self explanatory. Just need to keep playing around with them. I don't need to play all the games anways, as I am very easily amused right now with Arkanoid. Ahhhh, brings back childhood memories of Chuck E Cheeses, lol. I'm getting everything figured out slowly but surely. Thanx for the quick responses.

    I use xbox 360 controller in mame for the moment, but is tedious if you use the wireless one because if you have to go to the bathroom or have a phone call or something the controller goes to sleep and mame loses the config......

    I just set up an Xbox 360 Controller with Xpadder, and it ROCKS!! It was very easy to do. And on http://xpadder.com , go to the Forums and you can download a pic of the xbox Joystick and use it to set up your controller. Now I can use it for N64, and GameCube, and even PSX.

    Not if you set the MAME '"default.cfg" to Read-only.
