I just picked up a Qanba Q1 for Mame, and I wanted to know if anyone has had any issues with it in any of the emulators? I would imagine that it would be similar to any other USB controller, maybe I have to do some mapping.
Any input is appreciated!FloobMember06/30/2015 at 12:50Post count: 1629
I’m going to look at mine soon (although mine are MadCatz Arcade SE and TE).
I have to get the internals swapped out (although its fine in my PC if I use a VIA USB chipset).
I’m not sure if the Qanba has the same issue. Does it work fine in your PC?AnonymousInactive06/30/2015 at 14:22Post count: 51
Its still incoming, from what I understand it is plug and play largely, so I’m not too concerned. But I don’t see much talk of arcade sticks on here.
Also, I love your videos, they have been so helpful! I mean a real life saver!AnonymousInactive07/03/2015 at 02:23Post count: 51
So I tried my stick today, retroach configured fine. And FBA took the inputs ok, but I may have to mess with those. However Mame did not detect the stick movement,in game or when I tried to assign the movement in menu. Any thoughts?FloobMember07/03/2015 at 10:55Post count: 1629
Which mame are you using – was it mame4all, or the libretro version. Or advance mame?AnonymousInactive07/03/2015 at 14:09Post count: 51
I am using mame4all. One thing I did notice when I ran a JS test was that the Joystick Axis went from approx 3000 to -3000 on their respective up/down left/right movements. I know that in mame for all its looking for 1/-1. Would that have anything to do with it?AnonymousInactive07/05/2015 at 20:33Post count: 51
Does anyone have any ideas on this? I still cant get it to go, other games are ok, but Mame4All seems to be difficult.FloobMember07/05/2015 at 21:10Post count: 1629
Can you get the libretro version of mame4all working ok?AnonymousInactive07/05/2015 at 22:15Post count: 51

Forgive me, but I thought that was what the Mame-mam4all folder was utilizing.FloobMember07/05/2015 at 22:45Post count: 1629
It can use either in that directory. You choose by pressing x as the game starts.
The default is the non libretro versionAnonymousInactive07/05/2015 at 23:40Post count: 51

I apologize again, I saw that when I was booting them up again. The stick does work in the libreto version. However I cant seem to back out of games when I am in that version I have to ssh and reboot. But that may just be my issue in not knowing the correct command or button, although I hit every button on the board.FloobMember07/06/2015 at 20:49Post count: 1629
Which version of RetroPie are you using? Is it an image like 2.6.0, or did you build it from binaries/source?AnonymousInactive07/07/2015 at 04:25Post count: 51
Im using image 3.0 Beta 2FloobMember07/07/2015 at 20:31Post count: 1629
Can you send your controller file (post it on pastebin) – it should be here
Probably with a more recent date than the other files in there.AnonymousInactive07/08/2015 at 00:24Post count: 51FloobMember07/08/2015 at 20:31Post count: 1629AnonymousInactive07/09/2015 at 00:29Post count: 51
I havent changed anything else, I deleted those lines and the conf menu in mame4all still doesnt see my joy stick movements when assigning them to up/down/left/right.FloobMember07/09/2015 at 01:06Post count: 1629
Can you confirm you are using the libretto mame4all – that’s what should see the config file above. If mame4all standalone doesn’t read it I’m not sure it will unless you changed the controller board in the stick. Don’t forget there are other arcade emulators on the Pi like fba and advance name and even gngeo.AnonymousInactive07/09/2015 at 04:51Post count: 51
I did double check that on the last test, FBA works perfectly for some reason, and the rest of the emulators pick it up. Could it be this part of the config? I tried to remove the h0 in the directional part to see if it made a difference but no change.AnonymousInactive07/09/2015 at 05:17Post count: 51
One question and it may be basic, will FBA read most mame roms?FloobMember07/09/2015 at 13:20Post count: 1629
Thats a very broad question. There are different romsets for different emualtors:

Thanks for that, I mean its not a insurmountable problem, I can still use my controller for regular mame. Its just so weird that this specific emulator is giving me hell.
