Mame32 gamepad troubles with MK Series

I am trying to play Mame32-emulated versions of the Mortal Kombat series.
Combos are not working, and it seems to be because the joystick I am using
(Logitech Dual Action USB) isn't sending signals through fast enough or
something. The reason the gamepad is suspect to me is that when I use the
keyboard for testing, it seems like the commands are in better synch with
the game character's behavior.

I'll give an example for those familiar with Mortal Kombat 2/3. The Liu Kang
character is capable of jumping forward in the air and while in mid-air he
can suddenly stop and shoot a fireball. It absolutely will not work for me
when using the gamepad, but it does with the keyboard. Same thing for the
jump kick and then flying kick combo.

Would another game pad solve this problem, or am I likely to experience the
same thing? Or, could it be the emulator software or my operating system
environment?

I'm selling (another) 4 controller 'deluxe' PSX2PC interface in an black
& silver aluminum case. It uses an actual PSX power supply for
absolutely accurate voltage, and interfaces with your parallel port.
I designed it to use a standard DB25 M-F extension cable for hookup,
so you can easily add more cable if you need to - I've used it with
over 12 feet of cable and had no problems.

It works perfectly with both DirectPad Pro & PSXPad drivers (as well as
*all* versions of MAME), and supports Dualshock feedback on all four
controllers at once. It is a little scuffed up, as it has been in use
for a year or so, but I will touch it up for you if you want.

For fighting games more advanced than Kung-Fu Master? Bleaugh.
