Default MAME users - I need a keyboard.cfg file

Anyone know where I can get this file? It is required to run the program and it didn't come with the new MAME build, and apparantly I can't log into their forums to ask. (It says my e-mail is used, hence no new account. I never registered one there).

So, anyone know where I can get this file?

In the words of the main dev, "eh? I don't have a keyboard.cfg file."

So, I suppose this begs the question, what distribution are you using, and what are your settings in mame.ini?

I have the newest one, 0.86

I haven't changed any settings in the INI files.

So what you're saying is that you're using an old INI file?

I guess... I was unaware there was a new INI file.

Given the fact that there was a massive overhaul in the way input works... yes, yes there is. Delete your current mame.ini and then recreate it with mame -cc.

I deleted it and it's still a no go after doing that command. Are there any other config files I might need to check into? I have even tried extracting mame to a separate folder and that's still a no go.

Here are some lines copied from my MAME.ini file which I'm thinkign are suspect

<font face="fixedsys">
### Input device options ###
mouse 0
joystick 0
lightgun 0
dual_lightgun 0
offscreen_reload 0
steadykey 0
keyboard_leds 1
led_mode ps/2
a2d_deadzone 0.300000
<u># ctrlr <NULL> (not set)</u>
paddle_device keyboard
adstick_device keyboard
pedal_device keyboard
dial_device keyboard
trackball_device keyboard
lightgun_device keyboard
digital none
</font>

What should I do? Also: I appreciate your help up to this point. Don't think I don't <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>
