HELP! Can’t alter MAME2016 controls



  • Hello everyone, so all of the sudden I am getting —- in the control input slots in MAME2016 and MAME2003. These are also uneditable. I would really like to get some game controls configured, so any help would be extremely appreciated! Thank you

    This is on Retroarch 1.8.5, and I did not see any error messages. I am just unable to change any of my controls suddenly. I also tried re-installing from binary and it did not help.

    Here are my

    Please note: I did switch to a PS2 USB controller during the process of going through my arcade games & configuring the emulators. It did let me change the controls at first and I did not update anything so I cannot understand why I am suddenly getting three dashes in the input slots - - -

    Also note: Mame2003 works up I cannot go up down left or right.

    SOLVED, a MAME 2016.rmp file was generated in
    configs/arcade/mame2016 and over wrote my controls. I deleted the .rmp file and now I have my controls working again.
