Combo buttons in MAME

Post by kwfine » Fri Nov 25, 2011 6:08 pm

Hi all,

I was playing Final FIght in MAME 141 with a 8-button gamepay.
I found that I needed to press button A and button B at the same time to make a combo attack, and
sometimes it was hard for me to press the two buttons at the same time.
Is it possible to assign a button in order to achieve the same result by pressing button A and button B together?

Please help if you could

Yes. If your MAME has custom buttons feature, that's the easiest. Otherwise, you can do this...

Let's call your controller buttons A, B, and C and the game buttons 1 and 2.

Bind button 1 as your A button, then immediately after, bind it as your C button and you'll get something like this
Button 1 = A, C

Then repeat for button 2 so it's like this.
Button 2 = B, C

So now C is button 1 and button 2.
Aww yeah. AMD A10-7850K givin' MAME and MESS systems what for.
