    Now all I need to figure out is how to get the lightgun to move in more then one direction besides up and down,
    and if there is a way that I can change the controls for players 1 through 4 without having to go in and manually do them one by one,
    and search for more compatible roms for mame32…. So much to do.

    mashing on the laptops keyboard , so I pulled out an old Gravis exterminator Pc controller with usb port and have been trying to figure out a way to get it to work with mame. If anyone has the answer to my question or have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance

    Regards,
    Check that Windows itself can see the gamepad - go into Control Panel, and then search for "game", and there should be a panel that lets you test all of the buttons.

    If it's working, you should be able to press the Tab key while a game is running, and setup your buttons. Bear in mind MAME can have settings for all games or just the game you're playing now, so avoid the "Inputs for this machine" option unless you need something specific to that machine. I think you should be looking for "General Inputs".
