  1. So I'm finally upgrading my four zero delay controllers to ipac. It's a four-player arcade cabinet with eight buttons each including start and coin. I was going to go to an ipac 4, but then I read somewhere that two ipac 2s are better for setup. Is this true?
  2. Sorry. I'm using retroarch and I'm using the fcuemm_liberto core. (Although I'm open to the using another core if one works better.)
  3. I know it's a simple fix, but I'm not sure how to do it. I've been playing with the core emulators for NES as I was having some control problems. However now that I reverted to the original core, I can't get it open in full screen, the NES games just opens a window. Is there a setting I'm missing to make sure it opens in full screen?
  4. Thanks for the reply! I'll try to update retroarch first and then try some of the other solutions. The weird thing is left and right work perfectly, but it's just up and down that are off. It's strange!
  5. Hey guys, any help would be appreciated. I'm not sure what's happening, but in retroarch while using my arcade cabinet, down is up and up Is down on the joystick. I've changed it numerous times and it still reverts to going the wrong way. I've entered retroarch through the game, through launch box, I've done everything I know to do. However, I can't get this fixed. I've attached a video going through what exactly I'm talking about even showing the settings. Here's the video of what I'm talking about. https://youtu.be/h3zs81ORJT4 I honestly don't know where to go from h
  6. So I noticed some of the games want a coin button for each individual player. That is going to tie up all four coin buttons at the top. Is it possible to make just one coin button for all of them? That way I can use those the other three buttons for things like pause, record, etc.
  7. So I've got a 4 player arcade cab that's getting a lot of use. I love the idea of LEDBlinky showing people which buttons are used for which games. However, I have four Zero Delay's running the system. I've thought about getting an I-Pac4 or two I-PAC2s just so I can use LEDBlinky. Is it worth it? I know from reading the forums here that I-PACs are more difficult to install and not really a lot of other benefits.
  8. So I've got most of the emulators working, however, I can't run Dragon's Lair. Everytime I try, it says loading and then kicks me back to Launchbox. When back, the buttons are frozen and I have to use escape from the keyboard to get back. What emulator are you all using for Daphne and Dragon's Lair? I just can't seem to get it to work.
  9. Thanks for this! I can't quite follow it as I would love to add this to my unit. Where are modes in Launchbox? Also when I search by Max players, it never works.
  10. Tab worked perfectly! Apparently the MAME core was overriding everything from retroarch. Thanks everyone! Quick question, I've watched videos on Retroarch, but apparently every game uses a different core within retroarch, so I need to learn these too. Any good videos you would recommend that does a bit more of a deep dive rather than just how to set it up? I'd love to know how it works so I can know how to fix it.
  11. Thanks everyone, I will try those options and let you know. I'm not trying to circumvent the learning process, I've been trying to find videos on this, but can't. The majority of the videos cover xbox controllers or mainly how to organize. I got the wolfanoz pack so everything seems organized. It is just the fine tuning, and honestly I'd love to learn more about what and why it's working. So any videos you can recommend, I would appreciate. Thanks again for all your help!
  12. I've had Launchbox for a month and it's rendered my cabinet unusable. With retropie, I was up and going in no time. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I have four controllers hooked to four USB Zero Delays. They are mapped in Big Box itself. Then I went and mapped each one on retroarch. There we go. With the retro pie, that was it.... Now they would work in the game. However, when I play NBA Jam tournament edition, only one controller shows up. The other ones don't work. Also my retro arch hot key binds don't work so I cant open the in game menu to fine tune the contr
  13. So my 4 controllers (which use USB Zero Delay encoders) weren't working or mapped at all. So I went into retroarch and configured each one. While there I see that players 2, 3, and 4 aren't active. Also I put player 1 joystick upside down so I fixed the map on that. I fixed those problems and mapped them all. Then I go play a game, like street fighter, then the other controllers don't work, and player one is mismapped again. So it's not loading the updated config. If I go to launch with and select liberto, the other players show up, but player one is still mismappe
  14. Is there anywhere to reorder them as far as player 1, etc? Also map the buttons? I know Windows is supposed to have something, but not sure where.
  15. So I've got an arcade cabinet and have been salivating over Bigbox for a while, so I finally got a PC and made the jump. I've bought a license and everything is hooked up. I've got 4 players set up with Zero Delay USB Encoders. Most of the how-to on set up go into how to set up controllers like X-box. Not many go into how to set up Arcade Cabinets. Could someone point me in the right direction? It's little things like in Retropie, I knew in a game, I'd set up a hotkety (Select&Start) to enter retroarch and fine tune the controllers if I needed to. Here I don't even know how to g
