has anyone been able to get their control panel  buttons to adjust volume in mame?   Im able to do it in Big Box but once i get to mame, i cant control the volume.   I went into mame settings where volume is and i assigned my button for volume down and another for volume up.   but once i run mame im unable to adjust volume.   Even if i use the buttons on the actual keyboard. 

im using mame0204.

*fyi  when it was default "-" and "+", it still did not work.

I use Controller Companion to map keys to a controller, very recommended piece of software! It can also map a key combo to adjust system volume which works great.

thanks man, I have it mapped. its just not working. im going to mess around tonight with it again. 

Not sure if this will help you but maybe worth a try, this seems to work for some people when having mapping problems, setting the following in mame.ini, downside of putting Keyboard in dinput is Mame can use only one keyboard at a time, in case you use multiple keyboards.

keyboardprovider          dinput
mouseprovider             auto
lightgunprovider          auto
joystickprovider          auto
