SubjectAxim X5 - Button Mapping Problems new Reply to this message

First of all, Techmaster, you OWN! The very first thing I did when I got my Dell Axim X5 fired up was load MAME CE3 and give it a whirl.

Tempest and Battlezone fired right up; but I couldn't figure out how to map the buttons to actually play the game. The demo screens look great, though! Frame rate is excellent on the 300Mhz Axim X5.

After messing around with the global MAME key mapping window, I managed to make it impossible to re-map keys (the "Enter" key, or whatever, now is re-mapped, so it just opens/closes the key/button mapping window) I tried un-installing/re-installing MAME CE, but the goofed-up button/key map settings are still there.

I really can't wait to get started playing some games on MAME. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks for a GREAT emulator, Techmaster!

I'll be interested in hearing your experiences with the Axim. I just ordered one last night and it is supposed to arrive right before Christmas! Will be nice to be able to play the games on the Axim rather than hauling out my laptop every time I get on a long plane trip!

I'm also curious as to which file to use for installation. This is going to be my first adventure into the handheld units. Up until now, I've run Mame32 on my Win2K laptop that I carry around with me everywhere I go. I've actually got more questions than this about the Handheld, but going to wait until I get the unit in hand before I try to ask any of those (in another forum, of course)...

The Axim uses the X-Scale Processor, which is compatible with ARM processors.

To clear the messed up keys just delete all the files from the CFG folder. The system will rebuild them as needed.
As for the keys not working correctly, hang in there. It should be to long a wait :)
