Galaga 2 player but wont let me use 2 ps3 controller

Post by brockly25 » April 24th, 2018, 3:35 pm

:confused: it took me a long time to find a galaga yo work so I have that ... but I set up to controllers (ps3 wired) and set the keys up in the game not the general.... and the player 2 can add coins and start the game for 2 players but when it goto the 2 player it uses the player 1 controller... I try reload the ps3 controller use different usbs and switching controller 1 with controller 2 in the main settings.... but cant get player 2 to use control 2 .... is there something I'm doing wrong ?

Please look at this image of an original Galaga control panel:

Even though there is a 2 player start button, we can see that there is only one set of game controls. This is how some really old games were made. In a 2 player game of Galaga, the players would take turns using that single set of controls. This is what MAME is replicating.
