Having trouble with my wii arcade stick (HORI), classic controller connects and works fine but the arcade stick controller seems to register like an analogue stick or something? since it's constantly flicking around.. Anyone any ideas?

But I can't figure out how to get it to sync with iFBA. I go into iFBA Settings and turn on the BTstack, but when I press Sync on the Wiimote, it just blinks all four blue LEDs at me, and never connects.

Can anyone help? I've had trouble finding good docs to help, and Google brought me here.... thanks!!!

EDIT: iOS 5.1.1. I can't get the Wiimote to sync with iNES, iSNES, SNES9x EX, or SNES ADX. When I try the sync tool on those, I hit 1 & 2 on the controller, and the program finds the BT MAC address and identifies it as "Nintendo RVL-CTR-TR-01", but it never completes the sync process. Should I try downgrading?

I'm having the same issue. I don't think the wii motes that are identified with "TR" work with very many emulators. Only one I've gotten to work is snes9x.

I have the same problem, but the problem is the WiiMote with "TR" only works with SNES9x,GBA Emu, GBC Emu, NES.Emu, and the WiiMote without "TR" works with MAME4IOS, and IFBA (on IFBA the player moves alone so i cant play).

This is a great app but I'm wondering why this won't play any of the Mortal Kombat or NBA Jam games. This app works far better with my iControlpad than iMame4All but iMame4All plays a lot more games.

Becaused it mostly emulates games that use the 68000 + Z80 processors, which the Midway games did not.

Well, not sure who all still lurks around here but I noticed yoyofr was tinkering around with his code about 12 days ago. No official word on an update but perhaps the wheels are turning again.

I just redownloaded iFBA. It really is a fantastic emulator. I wish there was a way to move the buttons around or at least customize the layout a bit. Definitely looking forward to seeing what yoyofr has in store for the next update.

Btw, I've been trying in vain to get Third Strike to run. It always crashes even when it says the romset is fine. I'm on an IPhone 4 iOS 5.1.1. Does the ip4 not have enough RAM to run it?

EDIT: Nevermind! Not only did I find that I could move the buttons around but I got Third Strike running! IFBA won't be leaving my phone anytime soon lol!

Martial Masters PGM

I'm using an iPad 1. iFBA is fantastic, I just really need some help getting Martial Masters to work.
Red Earth works great, Street Fighter 3 runs but lags a bit. All CPS 2 work great, Neo Geo some roms are perfect some don't have sound (I assume those are the wrong rom set).
Which brings me to PGM -- I can get Demon Front to run, Oriental Legend and Knights of Valour Super Heroes. Everything else crashes. I REALLY want Martial Masters especially to work -- it loads, says the rom is fine. It usually crashes but a couple times it loaded, however the joystick and buttons don't respond and the game crashes anyway.

I've tried a bunch of different PGM BIOS, different Martial Masters ROMS and nothing seems to work.

It's my favorite PGM game, I'm just dying to get to running on this -- any help would be MUCH appreciated!!
