I'm running Attract-mode for my front end and so been into the mame program to map my buttons as you're supposed to.

They all behave themselves apart from a couple on the joystick.. Right doesn't map right, instead it's up and right.
Also the same for down, I have to press down and right on my joystick.

For example, playing Mario.. to go forwards - I have to put my joystick at the diagonal top right..

It's a run of the mill Sanwa stick that I'm using.. Wondering if the 8-way/4-way plate isn't correct?

I've thought about finding a .ini file to manually edit the controls but I can't find which one that'll be.

Sounds like it could be the plate or if you have recently fitted the joystick, perhaps it's not orientated correctly. I would try mapping the buttons via the actual dipswitches from underneath, not by moving the shaft. Then you'll be able to see exactly what is being pressed.
