mame gamepad controller loses settings/configuration

Post by tallpr24 » June 15th, 2017, 7:11 am

Hey guys,
new to mame here.
I'm using mame0.816ui. My Xbox 360 controller wireless keeps losing the config in Mame. I thought it was happening when I launched mame without my controller turned on but tried it again today and lost the config again even though the controller was on. I changed the config file to be read only, not sure what else to do. any suggestions. I have mame and roms in the root of c drive.

G'day :hello:

One thing to keep in mind; if you ever disconnect a controller, make sure to connect it to the same USB port as before to avoid losing custom MAME settings.

Also, make sure to properly close MAME with your changes for them to stick. Tab then close MAME. Doing that and the USB slot and you should be OK.
