Turns out I had incorrect parameters in ~/.xmame/xmamerc. Here's the
xmamerc that's working for me in mythgame:
Now, I'd like to be able to control more of the game controls using the
gamepad. Namely, I want to use the gamepad to do the keyboard
equivalent of 5 (insert coin), 1 (single player), CTRL (fire/action -
this is the only gamepad button that's already working, by itself), and
ESC (quit). Anyone know if this is possible? I investigated using
'mapkey' within xmamerc, but don't see a way to map keys to joystick
buttons (it just maps key to key as far as I can tell).
