thx for the quick response Pieter, ok i ll give a try then via the interface and see how it changes the file then so that i can edit directly.
So i was not that far from finishing reconfiguring the whole thing to get it working fully !

cheers and long life to retro FE !

Hi there,

i am tweaking a bit my arcade machine and it s like i am new to it again, one quick question about mame, where is the line which tell to mame to use the same control config as per the front end retrofe.

basically i can navigate through my retroFE interface but when i launch the games with MAME emulator, the controls are off.

Thanks !


Am i right to assume we can change the .exe only if i want a smooth update from a previous version, or shall we add some other files ?
I understand the need to update the config file as well maybe since there are more functionalities included in updated versions.

Thanks for your feedback !

I am not a heavy user of Linux but my plan was to install Lubuntu and disable the Gui once the config is fully running.
it's running fine so far under windows 7 but still, i got few windows crashes and i believe Linux core is more stable.
I would like also to image the config so that i can reload in a snap the core if corrupted.
I need to spend some time on checking the drivers'compatibility as well before going to far.

Thx Karlabury, I will try this weekend for some machinesnot working with MAME for me.
What would be the advantage compared to Mame64 though, in terms of quality or speed... ?

cheers !

Which linux distro would you guys recommend to make an arcade machine working ?
Is there any specification we should know before going that path ?
shall we have a tutorial int he relevant section for this (step by step)?

Hey Pieter,

I have checked the drivers for my control panel and this is the generic ones from Microsoft (HID-compliant game controller) which are used.
Do you need more specifics or this should be enough for you to dig around ?

ok I have updated only the .exe with the latest release in the end, I wanted to apply the changes you made to Aeon Nox layout but the videos are gone and the text explaining the game or the console history are popping in the middle of the screen, something wrong in there for me. What settings did you change to make it snappier exactly ?

I ll check the exact driver name and version i am using for you to know.

I bought this controller back in the days and that was working :

The driver has been installed automatically with Windows 7, seems to be a generic one
It weird that it's not retro compatible, usually it's fine that way. I have a backup worst case scenario and i will keep my old version  :-\
If i decide to install the 8.12, I simply need to change the .exe + Aeon Nox directory and that would be it right ?

General Discussion & Help / Version 0.8.13 - issue with controls
« on: September 21, 2017, 12:28:15 AM »

I have updated my fully working version (RetroFE 0.8.6) with the following elements from Release 0.8.13 :

- Core directory
- layouts / Aeon Nox directory
- layouts / Default 16x9
- controls.conf updated with the previous .conf top part of my working version

My problem is that the controls are not working within the RetroFe interface anymore, however when I am playing games it is working due to the fact that the emulator takes over I guess.
I am attaching both logs in case this would help, i checked them but nothing really indicative to be honest. I just noticed that before i was missing some commands I have added for the playlist but that's all.

Thanks for your input
