Summary 01620: mazeinv: Problems with the readinputport handler.
Description Problems with the readinputport handler.
Steps To Reproduce If you set all P1/P2 buttons and the AD Stick to *None*, except 'Player Start',
'Coin 1'and 'P1 Button 1', start a game and you will see that the blue player
sprite is falling down into the left lower corner.
If you now set the 'AD Stick Y Dec' to cursor 'UP' and start a new game,
you will see that you can move up, but the blue player fall down again
and again.
This must be a problem with the read input routine... it reads wrong values!

Not a bug. The game auto-calibrates the joystick. It is an analog joystick, so if you never move it, it never auto-calibrates.

I found the joystick calibration routine in the service mode (F2), but
how can i save the setting?

You don't. It's not saved. You calibrate the joystick and then turn off test mode. Or you just play the game and move the joystick in all directions briefly to auto-calibrate.

Remember this is a prototype.

To the MAMEinfo.dat i have add this:


SETUP:

- The joystick must be calibrate every time you start the emulation, move the player controls to upper left and lower right after Insert Coin.

Unless a Dev tells me otherwise, I'll file this as BTANB.
