    Hi all, after installing everything following the step-by-step guide all is working but mame.
    The joystick works fine in every other emulator (joystick is a usb mayflash fighting stick). Once Mame is launched only the keyboard and 1 button of the joystick works when i try to set up the keys from the TAB menu.

    I’m super new to this thanks everyone for helping out –

    I’m also having the same issue. I can access the emulator menu by pressing TAB, but when I try and assign a new button from the joystick it does not register any input, however I can use the joystick in all the other emulators without issue.

    I’m using the official Sony PS3 Dualshock pad via Bluetooth (again, works flawlessly in the other emulators).

    Similar problem here, Mame4all-pi cannot recognise my joystick: button works, axes stick is not.
    I am using a stick with 4 axes and 3-4 are h0x and h0y. Any other emulator works fine. Any suggestion?

    Thanks!

    You can find a fix for the PS3 controller and Mame4all-pi at the Retropie Wiki

    I can’t say whether it’ll work for the other controllers but it may be worth a try.

    Thanks, I actually found this page yesterday evening and gave it a try. Once I had followed the steps on there, I was able to get mame4all-pi to recognise the PS3 controller and was even able to use them within games. I only had a little time to map out the buttons to various commands, but haven’t had chance to try them out with other games yet.

    However I will report back if there are any problems so if you don’t hear back then presume that everything works a treat!

    it’s me again, I tried the ps3 fix but my issue is not resolved :/
    Mamepi4all still cannot recognise the joystick axes, it seems cause Mame can only assign the first 2 axes and my stick is with 4 axes (1-2 not active 3-4 are h0x and h0y accordin to jstest)
    All the pad buttons are recognised and the controller works in any other emulator.]

    It seems to be one of the issues described here:https://code.google.com/p/mame4all-pi/issues/detail?id=17

    Does anyone know the solution?
    Thanks!
