When I go to view a control panel (on any theme) it draws a black rectangle overtop of everything and I can hit escape to close it. All is well except for that...
Controls.ini is a project started by Kevin Jonas (SirPoonga) with the help of Howard Casto. This project was started to accurately document the controls and button labels of the arcade control panels from the games in MAME. Like the Catlist and NPlayers files, you can only use the controls.ini with a front-end that is programmed to use it.
CPViewer is a label layout program and controls viewer.
jcrouse says this about what CPViewer is:
"CPViewer is an add-on for Mame. More specifically for the front-end you use to launch your Mame games.
It uses a file called controls.ini (part of controls.dat) to lookup the controls for a particular game. 'It then displays them on the screen so you know what buttons and movements perform what actions in the game that is currently highlighted in your front-end.
Did you ever sit do to play a little and decide to try a new game? Then ask yourself, "What buttons do what?"
Well if the game has been documented in the controls.ini file, this won't happen again. Simply press a hotkey (one of your control panel buttons) and a graphic of your control panel will be displayed with all of the character movements or button assignments displayed so you know what buttons perform what actions. It's that simple." (By John Crouse)
