I have seen some people experience issues with controls in arcade games running in mame 2003 plus. The issue stated was that the joystick or dpad was unresponsive. There are two fixes for this.

1) Launch the run command menu by pressing “A” button repeatedly at the start of a game. A menu will come up and let you change the core. Please DO NOT CHANGE THE DEFAULT CORE. Instead change the core associated with the rom. This is the second option down. You can try mame 2003 but you might need to try other cores for some games.

2) This is the preferred method. While inside a game open the mame menu. This can be achieved multiple ways.
1)Tab on a keyboard
2) open retroarch in game by hitting hot key and X. Then options, then show mame menu
3)Sometimes L2/R2 or Left/Right (L3/R3) down

Once in this menu (must be careful and you might need a keyboard to navigate) select input general and scroll down until you see player 1 controls. Map the directions desired to the stick. Also continue to scroll down if you need to map players 2-4
