Actually it's very simple you go to wahcade press 2 game list -> generate game list and it'll show the new games

I managed to get WhaCade to work last night (with SDLMame), however, I have to use the keyboard to make selections and I want to use the joystick I have hooked up (PS2 controller via a USB adapter). I have gone into the WahCade setup editor and did tick off joystick control, but that doesn't seem to work.

The joystick DOES work within a MAME game and I can play the game using the joystick...however, buttons for coining up, starting the game, do not work (probably just a mapping issue within SDLMame). However, the joystick will not work at all in the WahCade interface and I do want to get that fixed as the whole point of the WahCade front end is to emulate a commercial arcade machine. So I really don't want to see the Linux OS or use the keyboard in anyway (except for servicing).

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanx,

Geo

Another way is to use Applications>Games>Wah!Cade Setup Editor
Click on the M.A.M.E Only tab
There is a blue refresh button after the XML/Data File text entry box that when you hover over it, it says 'Generate XML File'

If you activate that button, it will generate a new list for you.

I just have to find a playstation 2 controller and I will test this for you with my adapter and see what I come up with.

EDIT:
Ok, so I tested it with my PS DualShock controller, it was in analog mode the whole time with a FT8D1 PS/GC/XB/USB adapter. In Wahcade I enabled the joystick checkbox, I mapped all controls that use the number 1 key to the controller start button, and 2 key to the controller select button. Don't forget to save your settings before exiting the setup editor.

To map the controls in SDLmame, run it from a terminal, select Configure General Inputs, then Other Controls. How you want to map it is completely up to you. But it all worked out perfectly for me.

Enjoy
