Mame blackscreen with Steam BigPicture

Recommended Posts

I recently got a SteamLink so I'm checking if everything works fine with Launchbox (and it does so far!) and I have one problem with Mame.

No matter if it's on the Link or directly on the computer, Mame shows a black screen and crashes back to BigBox if it's launched through Steam BigPicture.

It works fine if launched directly or through normal steam (no BigPicture).

Did anyone encounter this problem before and is capable to help me?

Thank you!

I have the solution!

Or rather Cammelspit gave me the answer and it's to set go in MAME.ini and change some settings:

<keyboardprovider> and <mouseprovider> have to be set on <dinput>

<joystickprovider> has to be set on <xinput>.

A big thanks to him!
