Need Help getting 360 TE stick to work with mame

I’m looking for some help here as this is driving me nuts. I did some google searching and couldn’t find a definitive answer.

I have the latest drivers for windows 7 and xbox accessories. When I go to control panel the tournament stick tests fine.

But mame doesn’t recognize my input. I also went into options controllers and enabled joystick input.

Is there something else I should be doing? I’m using mame .103u2 and Windows 7 x64 rc 7100 if that helps.

(I just downloaded xpadder and have no idea what I’m doing.)


Start a game, pres TAB ,go to [Input general] and redefine keys. Your joystick directions will be recognized as Joy 1 Hat switch D, U, L and R. That is if the stick is set as D-pad.
