MaLa can be enhanced with plugins in various ways. The plugins can react on various MaLa events like game selection, emulator selection and so on.

How to install a plugin?

  • Copy the plugin file (*.mplugin) in the 'plugins' subfolder of the MaLa application folder.
  • In the options dialog you can find a tab 'Event Plugins' which shows all accepted plugins.
For other or additional information about installation or configuration of a plugin read the included documents!

EmuWave 1.6 by Loadman

As you know MaLa itself already allows you to play a wav file triggered by certain events.
However this Plug-In gives you the added options of:
• Playing "Random" wavs from a nominated folder on these events.
• Play a "Specific" wav file when you switch list and Emu's.
The idea behind this is you make a voice/sound saying the EMU 'or' game lists name that will be triggered when you switch to it.

Please read the included TXT file for more information on installation and configuration.

LedWiz 2.0 by Swindus, Edge and Loadman

MaLa v1.0 RC8 and greater

The MaLa LEDWiz Plugin was designed to be a simple but powerful tool to help light up your control panels.
We tried to make it as customizable as possible, and we are always open for more suggestions.
• Light up your controls in any RGB color by using the LEDWiz intensity levels
• Light up your controls as you scroll through game lists in MaLa
• Light up your game specific controls when you launch a game in MAME
• Set default lighting schemes for other emulators as well - not just MAME
• Over-ride default lighting settings for specific games (ie, NeoGeo games)
• FLASH -N-SPEAK - Plugin will flash and speak each control (FIRE, JUMP, etc) upon game launch
• Flash all your buttons on MaLa start, MaLa exit, game start, gamelist change, etc.
• Random Attract Mode - Randomly runs one of the many ledwiz animations (LWA) included
• Support for ADMIN buttons:- User can assign friendly names to admin buttons (ie, Menu, Pause, etc)-
User can make admin buttons stay lit (no matter what game is selected)
• EZ_RGB Data Entry• To help speed up data entry when configuring your panel, the config wizard will automatically populate the RGB values based on only one input.
For instance, if your RGB has its R wire in input 1, the plugin will automatically input G in input 2 and B in input 3.
• As you configurate your panel in the wizard, you can see your buttons lit up real time. Make a change and instantly see it!
• Support for up to 16 LEDWiz controllers
• Support for both RGB and Single Color LEDs
• All screens sized for 640x480.
• Microsoft .NET not needed.• And much more!

MaLa Focus Logger 1.0 by TheShanMan

A plug-in to fix a bug where MaLa sometime loses windows focus. The C runtime files (the non .plugin files) need to go in the mala directory itself on some systems, and in the plugin directory on others (not sure why it varies).

StartCom 5.3.2. by Ken

Use startcom_config to set up your startcom plugin for Mala.
Place startcom_config in the same folder as startcom (Usually Mala\plugins).

This package contains this readme file, startcom.mplugin, startcom_config.exe, and comdlg32.ocx
Place the startcom.mplugin and startcom_config.exe files in your Mala\plugins folder.
The included comdlg32.ocx file needs to be placed in the windows\system32 folder. It may also need to be registered with regsrv.
To register it, click start/run then type in "regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\comdlg32.ocx " (without the quote marks.)
This should register it.
The file startcom_config.exe needs this ocx file to run properly. I would try to run it first, you may already have it on your computer.

This program was written by Ken Rager and is free for public use. (2009)

UltraStik Mapper 1.3 by FatFingers

This plugin will automatically apply map files (.ugc files) to your UltraStiks before a game is started and after a game has exited.

New in v1.3
- Maps are now applied correctly for games with vertical 2 way joysticks.
- Plugin Is now configurale via the MaLa config-plug-in tab

New in v1.2.03:
• Maps now applied by emulator name for non-MAME emulators.
Map name must match name of emulator as it is named in MaLa
• default.ugc has been added and is always the last map file that the plugin will attempt to load if it doesn't find anything else.
• An installation program is included in the package to hopefully simplify the installation process for many users. The installer will prompt for installation locations of MaLa and UltraMap and install the plugin and map files appropriately.
• PATH environment variable no longer needs to be modified to include the path to UltraMap. Instead, the installer locates UltraMap and stores the location in the registry and that location is used when running UltraMap from within the plugin.

New in v1.1:
• Clones no longer need their own maps
• Added support for detection of installaton directory
