    Hi, i cannot use the dpad of xbox 360 wired controller for mame4all.
    With advmame is possible but this emulator is way to slow.

    You certainly can. Start the xboxddrv with the –dpad-as-button flag.

    I used method 2 from here

    https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/Setting-up-the-XBox360-controller

    So, in my case the lines look something like this:

    xboxdrv --trigger-as-button --dpad-as_button --wid 0 --led 2 --deadzone 4000 --silent &
    sleep 1
    xboxdrv --trigger-as-button --dpad-as_button --wid 1 --led 3 --deadzone 4000 --silent &
    sleep 1
    xboxdrv --trigger-as-button --dpad-as_button --wid 2 --led 4 --deadzone 4000 --silent &
    sleep 1
    xboxdrv --trigger-as-button --dpad-as_button --wid 3 --led 5 --deadzone 4000 --silent &

    I suggest reading up on how to use xboxdrv, as you can set up multiple controller configurations that you can swap by hitting the xbox button for example. I do that by way of the –alt-config flag and multiple config files. This helps with some emulators that require slightly different controls.
