  1. This is awesome, thank you very much! I am testing it right now: This is a feature I have wished for a long time. Now what we need is a BigBox theme that supports custom badges... Something like this:
  2. Quick follow-up: JoyToKey may require the full path of the config file as parameter. Example: C:\JoyToKey\JoyToKey.exe -r "C:\Documents\JoyToKey\Your-Game.cfg"
  3. It should like this: Right Click on game -> Edit -> Additional Apps -> Add Application
  4. Hello, version 11.3 beta 2 now gives me an error when trying to run .lnk files.
  5. AFAIK it should not. I've been using devreorder for years now and it is indeed a very useful helper. Basically it just "replaces" the default dinput dll file (a file that's in the Windows OS folder), it is not being put on top of any already loaded up Input API file. When a game sees devreorders dll file, it won't load up the default Windows dinput.dll. So it's not an additional layer, it a replacement. There is not going to be any sort of additional input lag afaik. The tool will only work with games and emulators that use the Direct Input 8 API, so it won't work with games that rel
  6. You could try this: https://github.com/WombatFromHell/OriginSteamOverlayLauncher and for Mass Effect there is a mod for Gamepad-Controls: https://www.nexusmods.com/masseffect/mods/60
  7. Thanks, with the new Update it's working now!
  8. Do not download Pinnacle Game Profiler. The setup file has been infected with a virus. For more info click here.
  9. Hi, I am currently trying to set up Mr. Retrolust's awesome looking Bezels. Do I have to adjust screen size and curvature manually for each system? If so, what are your settings for a 1080p screen? Or is it supposed to auto-adjust?
  10. If you really made sure that no 3rd party apps interfere between these emulators and your input devices, then only two options remain: Either it is some sort of hardware defect or its the emulators. You could temporarily replace your joysticks with some other controllers, for example xbox gamepads. Check if that makes any difference. Testing out other USB ports wouldn't hurt either. Also, Kega Fusion and Magic Engine are really old and haven't been updated for a long time, so there are somewhat deprecated. The Model 2 Emulator also tends to run unstable on some systems. Newer em
  11. So they are being recognized as Direct-Input devices. You may want to test within joy.cpl if button presses are recognized in the first place. If that works, we have ruled out some issues on a basic level. What emulators specifically are causing problems? Please close any frontends, apps and scripts that may interfere and hook into your joystick inputs. Start up the concerning emulators, set up your joysticks and try out some games. If that works fine, the issue may lie within a script or a middleware app. Joy2Keys profile-based app detection can be a bit wonky at times (provide
  12. Does Windows recognize your joysticks as D/XInput devices or as keyboards? Press Windows-Key + R and type in joy.cpl. Are there any entries within joy.cpl?
  13. Your input issues derive from Hardware / OS driver level. They are not related to BigBox / LaunchBox. What kind of input hardware do you have attached to your system?
  14. As long as you have only one gamepad connected, which option you select will make no difference in your case. AFAIR Big Box allows you to choose a specific gamepad (F310 in your case) or to "indiscriminately" choose all XInput devices as valid input sources. That is why you see two options. Makes no difference in your setup. The big Logitech button in the middle of your gamepad acts like the XBox controller home button. By default the binding for that button is kinda hardcoded and usually cannot be directly accessed by most apps. (There are ways to unlock that button but I don't wanna dig
  15. I am not sure I can follow. Do you have button mapping issues in your emulator or in Big Box? In a manner of speaking that is what Xinput is for. An API controller manufacturers can use to produce input devices compatible to the Microsoft ones. As long as a game is decently programmed, any XInput-compatible device will work fine, just like genuine Microsoft controllers. An rare exception are some sloppily programmed older games that rely on string checking in the USB device name (Assassin's Creed 1 for example).
  16. Generally you should keep the gamepad in XInput mode. Since most software nowadays have native XInput support, compatibility will be best in that mode overall. Only some legacy games may work better with Direct Input mode, usually games that have built-in-support for the Logitech Rumblepad (2008 Need for Speed Undercover comes to my mind). Keep in mind though that the shoulder triggers will lose analog triggering capability in Direct Input mode and will only work as digital buttons. Map switching of the Dpad / left analog stick works both in Direct Input and XInput mode.
  17. Arcade Type Games: Broforce Perhaps Castle Crashers, although that game may need the right stick of a gamepad... Non Arcade Type Games that should play well on your setup regardless: Limbo Sonic Generations Oddworld Outland
  18. I agree with you that the new native PS4/Xbox Controller support of Steam BPM opens some awesome possibilities. Right now it's kinda buggy though, but I am confident Valve will fix stuff eventually. Could you provide a link to the thread you mentioned? EDIT: Never mind, found it https://steamcommunity.com/groups/SteamClientBeta/discussions/0/1291816880503369861/
  19. Hi, I am one of these people who use Launchbox primarily for PC games. Emulated games second. Currently I am using multiple Xbox One S Gamepads and Logitech F710 Gamepads. In direct comparison, the new Xbox One Gamepads are vastly superior when it comes to wireless connection stability. I have spent quite some time tweaking controls with JoyToKey; with the newest Steam updates however, new possibilities are opening up: Steam has extended its exhaustive Steam controller binding features onto PS4 and Xbox controllers. However it is currently very buggy, at least on my system.
  20. Controller mappings are being handled by the respective emulator, Launchbox has nothing to do with it. I mention it just in case it hasn't been clear. To answer your question: Yes, most Emulators - including Dolphin and Retroarch - support multiple Controllers, I personally have up to 9 Controllers attached to my system, different Controllers for different systems. Windows' handling of multiple Controllers isn't very sophisticated however. Sometimes the OS decides to shuffle the Joystick order around, and some emulators do not handle changed Joystick IDs very well. In your case,
  21. Right now I am looking a bit into how AHK actually works and I've found this little info about closing applications. Try these AHK lines and check if they work for you. So far, Big Box hasn't crashed on me with these. For Demul: $Esc:: { WinClose, ahk_class window ahk_exe demul.exe } For Retroarch: $Esc:: { WinClose, ahk_class RetroArch } For Dolphin: $Esc:: { WinClose, ahk_class wxWindowNR }
  22. Hi there, I think we all agree that LB is an awesome piece of software. After a hard week of work, sometimes you just want to have a good time and chill with your friends. And since I put my gaming rig into the living room, my friends and I really enjoy playing multiplayer games together. And yes, even girls like Big Box. I've now put LB on my Laptop as well, so that we are not restricted to be over at my place. Even took it once to a birthday party and people drooled over the awesomeness of Big Box. Yes, Big Box allows sorting by Play Mode, however I'd like to use the new
  23. For me it was not just enough to exclude Retroarch and Launchbox from Avast. It seems that Avast now has a some sort of overhauled and improved Game detection mode or whatever we want to call it. Which automatically detects Retroarch and Launchbox as Gaming Apps. Which ironically screws things up however. I played around with Avast's Gaming Mode settings and the settings according to the attached screenshot did the trick at least for me. Hope it helps, cheers.
