Pre-configured SumatraPDF + JoyToKey to view PDF's with a controller in LaunchBox 0.2

   (3 reviews)

About This File

This is a pre-configured SumatraPDF and JoyToKey to use for viewing PDF manuals in LaunchBox with a controller. It was setup with a DS3 using ScpTools Reloaded so it should also be compatible with a Xbox 360 controller. I have not tested it with any other controllers.

The zip file contains SumatraPDF, JoyToKey and a AHK script that will launch JoyToKey in a hidden state, then SumatraPDF and when SumatraPDF is closed it will kill JoyToKey. For it to display PDF's in LaunchBox you need to configure the Windows default PDF viewer as 'SumatraPDF-JoyToKey.exe'. You can update either SumatraPDF or JoyToKey by placing the contents of the portable installs in the root directory.

Script usage outside of LB is:  "c:\path\to\SumatraPDF-JoyToKey.exe" "c:\path\to\pdf\file.pdf"

This is fantastic and I have been intending to do this for myself for the last several months, but have been too lazy, so thank you for providing this! :)
