UI navigation with joypad issue

Wed Jun 07, 2017 12:58 am

I've mapped my joypad to MAME no problem, but I have one issue in completely navigating the UI. I can't seem to find a place to map a command to allow me to jump from the sidebars to the games list. For example, I'd love to be able to pick Favorites in the sidebar using the joypad and then switch back to the games list to move up/down. The tab key switches between them when using a keyboard, but is there a way to do that with a joypad?

One would expect a mapping in the User Interface section that you could map whatever key/direction/movement on your joypad to replicate it. This seems to share the TAB with "Config Menu" - so you 'should' be able to use that to put your joypad mapping in to be used alongside TAB's normal function.

Yeah that's what I thought too, sadly, no luck. The only place Tab is listed in UI controls is as "Config Menu," and mapping it to the joypad doesn't have the desired effect.

The reason this function would be helpful is so a person could navigate MAME completely using just a joypad... without it they can only go up/down in the games list and toggle the extras.
