Did you configure the controller within MAME's in-game options menu? There's a basic explanation of how to do that in my MAMEFAQs, Q9. (Linked below in my signature.)

thanks for getting back to me!! tried both in game and game options settings and still coming up empty. have to admit its driving me nuts at this point as the game i want to play ( astro blaster) loads up and i can see it in demo form, but no amount of adding buttons etc gets game to start. pc recognizes controller and it works on every other emu i have no prob. used the instructions in the faq as well

The best thing to do is to google Mame roms and find a rom that matches the version of Mame you're using... We don't supply rom files at Mameaddicts and never will so the remote option isn't one...
Ooer... No pictures...
