Used to work up to 0.165 when during the dev cycle an eeprom dump from Guru was added.

Still seems broken in 0.164, select joystick mode and you can't start the game as all.

you also have to go into the 'MACHINE CONFIGURATION' menu in MAME and select 'Joystick' as the control panel type, otherwise you're trying to operate the game in Joystick mode with a Mahjong panel attached, which isn't going to work ;-)

Once you do that it works fine with Joystick, so this is really a non-bug. It might be possible to change it to use MESS style slot controllers, but that's even more hassle than the current system ;-)

Yes, of course, the machine configuration. I assumed certain facts not in evidence when the nvram was switched and didn't test versions prior because I didn't have the old nvram image handy. That said, The joystick still doesn't seem 100% functional as when you start the game, the top player option is always selected. Version 0.136 and prior (when joystick control was all at worked), allowed selecting of the players. That behavior changed in 0.136u1 when the machine configuration was added.

    Add support for Mahjong panel for mjgtaste. Makes this the default input and alters the default eeprom accordingly to match factory default. Note that you need to change both the game and the controller setting from the driver configuration when switching input sources since the two are mutually exclusive. [PsikyoFan]

Not sure if this commit broke the joystick behavior or not - there was a lot of dev during 0.136->0.136u1 and I have no daily builds kicking around form that far back.

Adjusted wording to address the only issue that is an actual regression/bug.
