Summary MESS-specific 08047: pce and clones: Inverted button layout for bottom row of 6-Button pads
Description The layout of buttons III, II, I on the two 6-button pads is inverted. This causes kick and punch strength in fighting games to not match, and also inverts the controls in regular 2-button games.
Steps To Reproduce -Load the PC Engine or Turbografx 16 core with a any game, notice how the first 2 buttons are layed out
-Open menu with Tab
-Slot devices
-Set "ctrl" to either "arcade_pad_6" or "avenue_pad_6"
-Reset or load game, now the button layout is inverted
-Go to "Machine configuration" -> "Joypad mode" -> "6-Buttons mode" to check the order of punch/kick strength in games like sf2ce.
Additional Information Just needs to swap the "III" and "I" buttons.

I've added pics of the (odd) original button layout and MAME's current default one, to illustrate the source of the confusion.
