MAME Controls Info Images?

Recommended Posts

As I've been adding my MAME ROMs into my LaunchBox collection, I've noticed that EmuMovies has given me "Controller Info" images, most of which show a standard button panel with the various default button mappings labeled. I've attached one of those and also a lightgun example image as well. The main reason why I'm posting is: what do people actually do with these kinds of things? I know you can display overalys in MAME when in-game, but I'm not sure if there's really any easy way to display a particular game's controls. Ideally I'd like to be able to flash something up on screen for X number of seconds when that game is started, so you can easily tell what the controls are, or have a button or hotkey you can press to display the controls in a nice manner.

Does anybody on here use these or other images / text to help the end-user with MAME controls?

That sure looks like a generic screenshot from CPWizard: http://headsoft.com.au/index.php?category=cpwizard

It can do most of what you mentioned. You design a control panel with your button layout, and it renders the button actions based on what MAME rom is playing. It can display for a set time on game startup, or as a pause action midgame.

That's exactly what I was looking for! I had started working on a custom bezel / controller help setup, and was about where to the point of testing the stuff I've made, so this is great! Many thanks.
