Other tools included with MAME

ledutil.exe/ledutil.sh

On Microsoft Windows, ledutil.exe can take control of your keyboard LEDs to mirror those that were present on some early arcade games (e.g. Asteroids)

Start ledutil.exe from the command line to enable LED handling. Run ledutil.exe -kill to stop the handler.

On SDLMAME platforms such as Mac OS X and Linux, ledutil.sh can be used. Use ledutil.sh -a to have it automatically close when you exit SDLMAME.
