Hi all,

I would like to report a bug on FBA 0.2.97.42.
I'm on Windows 7 SP1 32bit.

I use a usb gamepad Omega Phantom (which looks like PS2 gamepad).

I go to Input->Map Game inputs-> Then I map keys from Omega gamepad, click on save and make as default, next when I close FBA and then I open it again the keymap is mess-neither the gamepad keys are saved, neither the keyboard keys are working as default (of course I need to set again the keys).

Hi, I just tested it here, and seems to work.  Please try this:

1: Load game: Cabal
2: press F5, then map buttons for p1 up/down/left/right button 1,2,3, then click "save preset"
3: close the preset window with escape, then press F5 again to re-open it.  This puts the new preset "in the list" for the second pulldown.
4: on the first pulldown, chose Player 1, on the second, choose "preset" (at the bottom), click "make default"

now all games which have not had their inputs previously configured will use the new settings.  For old input settings, go into the config/games folder and delete all of the .ini files, so the next time you load these games, they will also use the new button settings.

bye for now,
- dink

Starting with .43 (next release), step #3 will no longer be necessary.  Thanks to Treble Winner for the fix!

best regards,

Is it releasing anytime soon or might take a while?
