Saving buttons in MVC1

well i don’t know where else to post this so here it goes.

in mvc1 in mame, i set the buttons to whatever and whenever i open it again it didn’t save. so my question is how do you save your button config?

make sure your mame .cfg file isn’t read only. Otherwise, open mame, config your buttons, then close the program entirely
afterward, it should be saved

it’s still not working and i’m starting to get teed off.

Does this only happen in MvC1 or any Mame game?
You can:

  1. Install Mame into a fresh new directory on your hard drive.
  2. Delete any files in the cfg or cfgwin directory.

There’s a chance the .cfg files are corrupt. If you have saved button settings for a ton of other games, just delete default.cfg and mvc.cfg and hopefully that’ll save you from having to reset buttons for all the other games.
