  1. Strange - I can't get my screen to look anything like yours from a configuration perspective. I think the solution is to use my Tankstick only for MAME (which works amazing well) and other emulators where you can easily configure the controller input. Retroarch is giving me nothing but problems with TankStick . It is the only emulator I can't get working with Tankstick - I've really exhausted all options. Thanks again for your help!
  2. Could you check you .png image files - they are not rendering. I don't even know how to do a core override so I don't think that is it. Maybe I will have luck duplicating your controller setup. Thanks.
  3. A little progress but stilI not there. I got my second controller on the tankstick working. The one to the right side. For the Retroarch config, it sees this controller as User 2. In the game, this controller (assigned to User 2) actually controls player 1 in the game. So, I'm good for all single player games. If I try a two player game, all the buttons work for player 2 (User 1 in Retroarch) except the movement (up, down, left, right). I still can get that to work at all. It doesn't seem to matter if I have NumLock on or not - same results.
  4. I was attempting to get my Tankstick working with Retroarch. I can successfully BIND user 1 keys with my tank stick and handheld controller. For example, let's just talk about moving right. The D-Pad Right (hat) setting was made using the D-Pad right button on my PS2 compatible controller. The keypad6 setting was made using my Tankstick controller oriented in the RIGHT direction. The tankstick functions like a keyboard - which is why moving right would be represented by a keypad6 (key). When I start up a game using NES/MESEN core, the handheld controller works 100%. All of the buttons work on the Tankstick (select, start, fire, jump, etc.) but I can\t get any response from the joystick (no up, down, left or right movements). Hope the issue is something simple as I am very close but it is hard playing a game when you can't move your character 😉 Thanks for any suggestions!
  5. Nevermind - found it. My window was too small. LOL. Thanks again!
  6. Umm - Mesen isn't in the pull down list of cores?
  7. OK figured it out - the core it downloads is the correct one (nestopia_libretro). Got it! THANKS!!!
  8. That worked great! The core it specified (nestopia_libretro) however isn't available for download?Nestopia UE is as close as it gets but that one isn't listed in the Launchbox pull down menu that you show above? Am I missing something - YES - but I can't figure it out.
  9. What are the recommended Retroarch cores for each console? Is there a list someone can point me to? I though this was discussed on the forums recently but I can't find it. I thought Launchbox would identify the correct core and command line options but I am not seeing it. Just trying to get NES working right now. Thanks!
  10. Neil9000 - Your bezels worked fine. I think the ones I downloaded were for RocketLauncher (or to be used with RocketLauncher). I like many of the bezels in your pack - where did you get them from? I just downloaded the following bezel packs from EMU Movies but they don't look as good. Standard Bezel Pack (works) and Unified Bezel Pack (doesn't work - again I think these have to be used with RocketLauncher). Many of the bezels (even yours) cover the game such as in the high score area of the screen? Is there a way to shrink the game screen to fit within the bezel? Thanks!
  11. Will do when I get back this evening. if it doesn’t work, I’ll reinstall a clean version of mame and try again. Thanks for your help!
  12. I’m actually launching from Mame itself. Haven’t brought mame into Launchbox yet - wanted to resolve this issue first.
  13. Hello, i had already moved the mame.ini file into the root directory to fix an issue I was having with my trackball not working.
  14. HI Everyone, Been struggling for weeks with this - should have reached out sooner but I'm about to concede defeat. Issues is I can't get any artwork (bezels) to display in MAME (ever). Here is what I have: 1. MAME works fine for all ROMS so I believe everything is configured properly. 2. Let's use dkong.zip rom for example (all other roms behave the same way): dkong.zip is in /roms folder (game rom) - check dkong.zip is in /artwork folder (the actual artwork files) -check dkong.zip is in /cfg folder (config file) - check 3. Bezels and other artwork is enabled in the MAME program - see image. Check. 4. Bezels and other artwork are enable in the actual game - see image. Check. 5. End result - no bezels/artwork at all (as shown in the game image above). I don't know what else to check or try... Any and all help greatly appreciated! Thanks!
