View Full Version : mame and wahcade python error

March 12th, 2012, 11:13 PM
i followed this guide (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11755682) with a little help from here (http://www.anti-particle.com/wahcade_quick.shtml) as well. everything seems fine, but when i start wahcade from terminal everything comes up as if it is fine but i get a window with this message. running this on ubuntu 11.10 64 bit if that matters, with the setup files that are found here (http://sdlmame.wallyweek.org/). thanks in advance!

Looks like a problem with the joystick, it's either looking for one that's not there or it's configured wrong. Can you post your config file?
