Joystick support for PiMAME and AdvanceMAME

To setup a Joystick or Gamepad in PiMame:

Install the linux joystick support:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install joystick

Calibrate and Test it:
Code: Select all
jscal /dev/input/js0
jstest /dev/input/js0

Change the line in /home/pi/.advance/advmenu.rc
from:
Code: Select all
device_joystick no

to:
Code: Select all
device_joystick auto


You must then add the joystick button presses into the MAME config by pressing tab (in game).

This worked great with my Logitech cordless rumblepad

There is also a interface board called the I-PAC that will take any button push and translate into a keyboard design.
