Updated to MAME/QMC .183 and it seems something has changed.  


My keyboard's arrow keys and the control key used to work as joystick/button #1, but no longer does.  I've poked around the options but don't see anything that's obviously changed, and everything looks set right.  The rest of the keyboard works fine.  Tried using an actual game controller (the "joystick" options are on) but that gave no response, either.


Crushing, since we had a post on favorite games and I'm wanting some game time in between school assignments. :)

You can always define your joystick keys via the OSD menu, "Input (this machine)". Step down to the end of the list (going up will bring you there faster); there should be a section "root:joyport:twinjoy" with a list of settings below. You can redefine by pressing Return and then the key that you want to assign to it.

Yeah, it threw me because it listed P2 and P3...no P1.  But I redefined P2 and it seems to work fine.
