    Hi, I am having some issues with the setup.

    I have run through the setup of 2.3 on a 4GB card and have got things basically running however come across a few errors:

    I am using 1943: Battle of Midway as test ROM for name

    I cannot get the following to work with the Xbox360 controller:
    1. Cannot insert coins
    2. Cannot start the game
    3. Cannot loop the plane while in the game

    If I insert coins and start the game from a keyboard it works apart from the looping of the plane when in trouble

    I have tried other ROMS and I can get Altered Beast to start but I cannot get Mortal Kombat 3, Marvel, Xmen vs Streetfighter etc to run – it just kicks back to the Mame screen in ES. Are there any logs I can look at to see what is happening.

    Also if I try to Load Apple or IBM it fails as well

    Any help with these issues would be appreciated as it looks like a fantastic little gaming solution however just these issues holding me back



    If you press tab you can configure your pad. Also regarding roms check compatibilty here:

    I have got the plane loop to work – that was my mistake.

    However I can’t get the other buttons to work or the other games. I have looked and they are compatible. Also doenst make sense that the default Apple II doesn’t work either.

    I have run jstest and confirmed all the buttons. I have added the hotkey_btn as well with “” and without. But nothing seems to work. Im sure its just a config issue but I have done everything all the posts say and cannot insert coins and cannot start the game.

    If I insert coins via the keyboard I still cannot start the game by pressing the start button – this doesn’t make much sense as it shouldn’t be a hotkey related issue.




    MAME/FBA aren’t configured through Retroarch. Press tab in game to configure. MAME roms need to be from 0.37b5 romset.

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.



    Thanks, understand now. Will give it a go and check the rome as well
