It works for me but I had a lot of problems getting this version of MESS to work until it decided to work just now...

1. it might be some old config giving you problems: try deleting cfg/coleco.cfg
2. press TAB and check in the Category menu if the emulated Colecovision has a controller plugged in (if not select the controller you want in port 1)

Thank you for the good suggestions; unfortunately it didn't change anything. However, I discovered that the buttons do work using the number keypad, as opposed to the keyboard numbers.

yes, they are mapped by default to the number keys of the numerical keypad of a keyboard, but you can remap them to the keys you prefer from the TAB > "Input (this system)" menu
