  1. Thanks. I'll have a look when I get the chance.
  2. I'll have a look and update. How do you update the games.xml though? Doesn't that update when you update Supermodel?
  3. I've heard of it. Not sure it works with Supermodel though. I think it's more for setting up multiple guns. I can try though.
  4. OK. So I was playing around with another copy of Supermodel and I abandoned that idea. I went back to what I had setup in Launchbox in the first place. The original problem is still there (which is why I was trying another copy of Supermodel). I changed it to 800x600. The gun only moves from left to right in the bottom portion of the screen only. The fire button works. As I said, this is what was originally happening causing me to try another copy. I have no idea what the heck is going on. I tried another shooter (The Lost World) and the gun works fine.
  5. Sorry. I am talking about the Sega Model 3 emulator. I got confused because I'm having issues with the PS2 emu as well. Anyway, it seems that whatever change I make in Supermodel, the controls stop responding. If I change the resolution I can center the screen, but controls stop responding. If I change back to 1920x1080, screen is off center AND the controls stop responding. Even if I change the directory for the Roms, the controls stop. I have to completely delete everything and reinstall and start from scratch for the controls to work again. It's so frustrating, I don't understand how one change can affect the controls. And the only way the controls respond is to leave the screen off center (I can see a little more than half) I'm talking about the shooting games in particular btw. Using one wii mote and Dolphin bar.
  6. Does anyone know how to center the screen on the PS2 emulator without messing up the controls? I tried a fresh install because I couldn't get the controls to work for Ocean Hunter and LA Machineguns. The game screen is way off to the right and it's set at 1920X1080, however, the wii mote gun works. When I change the resolution, the screen centers, but the controls stop working! I tried a couple different resolutions and got the same result. What's worse, when I set it back to 1920x1080, the damn wii mote gun won't respond! This is driving me crazy. Quote Edit
  7. Ever since the latest update, LB freezes when I delete a Rom. Doesn't matter which system. I have to exit and reboot. The Rom does get deleted, but I'm not sure why this is happening
  8. I think I figured it out. I forgot that I set up Mame in emulators AND on another hard drive afterwards. I forgot to delete the copy of Mame that I was looking at for the default.cfg file! Anyway, I went into the proper Mame folder and set the Default.cfg file to Read Only. It's all still working (I shut the switch off to the controllers and then turned it back on) I'm so sorry for wasting your time. You were very nice to try and help me. If for whatever reason this setup doesn't work after further playing around, I hope you'll still be around!
  9. Yep. That's where it was. I deleted it but the controller is still working properly
  10. I deleted the default.cfg file from the Mame folder. I went into LB and chose a game. The Mayflash is still setup! How is that possible? I go into the Mame folder, the cfg folder, and that where the default.cfg was.
  11. Hi, So I made sure the game didn't have any variants. It still isn't working. I deleted the default.cfg file from the Mame folder (and the one in the LB folder just in case). Then, I launched Mame and set up the controller. I saved it. I closed Mame and went into LB and tried a game. Didn't work. Am I supposed to go through LB (hit Tab) and set up the controller, then set the file to Read only? Or, did I follow the correct steps? Why would it show a different controller mapping when I hit Tab and check it in Launchbox? That's Mame so it should be the same. I set it as the general controls btw, not game specific. thx Edit I should give you an idea of my setup jic. I have a Tron style arcade stick that I made with various buttons, and I have a Mayflash arcade stick. Both are connected to a usb hub, which is connected to another hub with switches. The main stick I want for most games is the Mayflash, so that's what I mapped in Mame. It shows as joystick 1 (which is what it shows in the default.cfg file). When I go into LB and hit Tab, most but not all controls show as joystick 2 (which is the Tron joystick). Edit #2 So I removed Read Only. Went into a game in LB and set up the controller (Mayflash) under General controls. Then, I went back and set the default.cfg file to Read Only. I went back into LB and tried a couple games. It worked (which I expected). Then, I shut off the USB switch where the 2 joysticks are connected (they were disconnected). I turned the switch back on and launched a game in LB and the Mayflash was still set up! I'm not sure if this will keep working or not though. What if I shut the computer off?
  12. Hi, Me again. So I've been playing around with this, and it's still not working. I went into MAME, set up the controls with the joystick. Exited Mame. Found the default.cfg file (in Mame folder), set that to Read Only. Then, I go to LB and start a Mame game, but the controls don't work. I hit TAB and look at the controls, but they aren't what I mapped in Mame. I checked in the LB folder, and there's also a default.cfg file, so I copied the one from Mame in there to see if that was the issue. It didn't have any effect. Same result. When I open the default.cfg file, I can see everything that I mapped. any idea what I'm doing wrong?
  13. Thanks for the help. I'll give it a try.
