Gamepad Controls

By default, jzIntv maps the first (left) analog stick to the left controller's disc input. In addition, the first 9 buttons are mapped to the 3 action buttons as follows:

Buttons 0, 3, 6:  Top action buttons, left controller
Buttons 1, 4, 7:  Lower left action button, left controller
Buttons 2, 5, 8:  Lower left action button, left controller

jzIntv maps the first joystick's first hat's 8 directions to the numeric keypad on the right controller, making the hat usable in games such as Night Stalker and TRON Deadly Discs. [Source]

It is possible to remap these using a keyboard hack file. Instructions on creating these can be found HERE. Keys 0, Clear and Enter on the numeric keypad are not mapped by default so a keyboard hack file would be required to this.

Memory Map Config Files:

If a rom does not load leaving you with a black screen (and the files dump.cpu and dump.mem in your home folder upon exit), then you need a memory map config file. This is likely to be the case for titles from Atarisoft, Imagic or INTV Corp.

First determine which config file your rom requires from this spreadsheet.

Next download the config file from here and rename it the same as the your rom.

For example, you are trying to get atlantis.int to work. From the spreadsheet, you see that it takes memory map #7 so download 7.cfg and rename it atlantis.cfg. Place it in your roms folder and your rom should now work.

Full details about using memory map config files can be found here.
