    Same problem for me.

    This is what I’ve tried:

    – Compiled mame4all from source using retropie script.
    – Substituted “mame” binary and “mame.cfg” (editing paths) by the ones provided by Tititatoo here: https://code.google.com/p/mame4all-pi/issues/detail?can=2&start=0&num=100&q=&colspec=ID%20Type%20Status%20Priority%20Milestone%20Owner%20Summary&groupby=&sort=&id=33
    (I know this should be useless, as Tititatoo’s changes are already integrated in the source that retropie script gets from git)

    Games work, even with sound, but I get no response from the PS3 controllers. I’ve also noticed that I can exit the games with the “esc” key of my keyboard, and that should be overruled by the retroarch.cfg file in /opt/retropie/configs/all/ (in fact it is in the other emulators where the PS3 controller works) That makes me think mame reads its key mappings from somewhere else. Any idea?

    Thanks in advance

    Have you tried opening the menu (TAB key) while in MAME and configuring your controls there?

    OK, fixed. Pressing “Tab” once in mame opens a menu where you can map all buttons.

    I only miss being able to map the Playstation button (the one in the center of the controller) to use it to exit games, but that’s a minor issue.

    Wow, I wrote before reloading the screen. Now I see your answer. Thank you!

    Just map the Playstation button to exit mame. I’m not in front of MAME right now, just look for whatever is currently mapped to Escape and add a second mapping
