How To Play Mame Arcade Roms Online Using X-Arcade:

You can use any X-Arcade Controller with the online arcade. You'll notice under each game it says "No Gamepad Detected, push a button to use it."  Please ignore this message. The X-Arcade is recognized as keyboard, not a gamepad. 

Configuring Internet Arcade Browser With X-Arcade

The X-Arcade is already per-configured for most games. The start buttons should start the game and the pinball buttons on the front of your controller should add coins.

If you are having an issue with getting a button/joystick assignment, after a game starts, you can change the controls for any game by simply pushing the "Tab" key while a game is already running to access the controls menu. The Input (general) option allows controller settings to be applied to all games. Input (this game) overrides the general input settings and adds custom controller settings for just the game being used. 

Pick the control you wish to change (Player 1 up, or Player 1 Button 1), then press enter on your keyboard, then press the joystick or button on X-Arcade.  It's that simple. You can change for each game or globally.
