In-game volume controls not working

Post by flcl64 » January 26th, 2016, 4:31 am

In the input settings under 'other controls' there's a volume up/volume down. I set them to some keys, but pressing them in-game does nothing.

The Master Volume slider control in MAME is normally attached to a hotkey, eg. the tilde key to open it and the left / right arrow keys to slide it.

I've never been able to find any definitive info as to what the - (Volume Down) and = (Volume Up) keys under 'Other Controls' are used for in MAME. I'm only guessing, but they might be something to do with adjusting the volume in the service menu of certain games.

This may also be of interest:

The volume controls control a volume service menu in Mortal Kombat. I used a hotkey program to assign the computer's master volume to controller buttons instead.
