I’m just wondering if it’s possible to access the service menu in the mame2000 core in retro arch for vita?
Do I have to remap buttons in RA to be able to access it, or is it even possible to access it? Anyone know how?

Thanks

R2 access the mame menu right?
So once you open that menu you get to see options like, dip switches (change difficulty settings, ect) or general options for assign the controls keys, ect in this very menu look for a "service button" go to that option and map say L2 to it and that will give you the in game service menu, which you will find the dip settings (in most games the settings inside those service menus are the same as the dip settings anyways.)

Which game are you playing or trying to change the settings?

Ok, I’m using the latest version of RA on vita and the mame2000 core for all my mame games and they’re working good. I was just trying to figure out how to access the service menus for mame in game like I can do with mame4all on Android.
I was trying to get the Terminator 2 arcade gun game working, and I think I had to access the service menu to get it working on mame4all on Android. And I was trying to see is there any way to change the settings for Midnight Resistance to be able to map the controls to the joystick as that game was supposed to have one joystick for movement and one for firing in all directions on the arcade machine.

I’m not too knowledgeable on mapping the buttons in RA, can you tell how I can map the buttons needed to access the service menu in mame and save it to RA config please?

Thanks

Lol, the vita does not have a R2 button! What we miss is the TAB button. That accesses the menu on a PC!
