Using both player 1 and player 2 joysticks in single game config (Karate Champ MAME)
Is there a way to edit the .cfg or use a .rmp file to configure the MAME version of Karate Champ to allow me to use both player 1 and player 2 joysticks like the original arcade game?
When I go into the options menu and controls it only gives me choices for the player 1 joystick and buttons so I don't know how I would configure it.

@jrpohlman39 depends on which MAME. https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first

@jrpohlman39 good news... I had the exact same problem a while ago with Robotron. Please see the discussion here:
You can map this in mame menu. Within the game it can be accessed via keyboard by pressing TAB key. You can map player 2 joystick to player 1 inputs.
Even better: with the new and very cool mame2003-plus-libretro emulator there is a core option implemented for this. Once set, it enables this control scheme for all dual joystick games. See this github issue 278 and github issue 216
There is a dedicated thread in this forum for mame2003-plus here
