Question: Can I completely disable Steam remapping my controller buttons when Steam Big Picture is running? Context for question: I've added BigBox as a non-steam game so that I can play my emulated games on my TV using my steam link. In steam big picture I disabled steam remapping my controller buttons with BigBox by using the settings pictured here. I didn't quite understand each of the settings, but I kind of guessed at what to disable and it worked. Two of my emulators and games work perfect when I open them by going: Steam Big Picture > BigBox > both Dolphin and SNES9x However I'm getting an issue with my controllers when I try to use a frontend for mupen64plus called m64p (https://m64p.github.io/). I have the controllers working on PJ64, but there are some issues. If I could solve either of my issues for my N64 emulators then that would be great. m64p The controller configuration works when I open the emulator through BigBox from my desktop, but not when I start out by going through Steam Big Picture. Is there someway to completely disable the Steam remapping of my controller buttons? PJ64 I opted to work with m64p instead for two reasons: 1. I want to run BigBox and all my emulators on my 3rd monitor. My primary monitor is 16:10, but both my 3rd monitor and my TV (connected to the steam link) are 16:9. PJ64 will only go fullscreen on the primary monitor (16:10) though, so I get black bars on the sides of my 16:9 TV when I use this emulator. I did a lot of looking around the internet and I don't think there is a way to play PJ64 in fullscreen on a monitor other than the primary one. 2. PJ64 gives this error when I try to open it with Steam Big Picture running if I don't remember to first turn off my Steam Controller. When I forget then its not just simply try again, the error persists until I stop streaming my desktop then start all over again. Retroarch: I put a couple hours into working with this emulator, but I can't get the controllers to work properly either. Not sure if this is my best bet, but I didn't want to keep sinking time into it.
I used to play Launchbox on my TV through Steam Link, in order to play MAME games. Everything worked fine, until recently: mame now crashes as I start a game. But only on steam link: when launching it from my PC, it works. So I thought it was an issue with Steam or some updated NVIDIA drivers: I rolled back to older NVIDIA drivers, switched to older steam too, but it keeps crashing. And then I realized that it's actually not working anymore since the last Launchbox patch I've downloaded! But I've tried rolling back this too, and it still doesn't work.. So, it's not actually a Launchbox issue, but since it's not working only when using it with Launchbox (and it WAS working until now), I hope someone else here is having the same issue, or some tips about it, in order to sort this out..
Has anybody had luck with only using a gamepad for Citra? Here's my situation. I start steam link, it sends a magic packet to my computer, I navigate through steam big picture mode to Big Box mode, I select a 3DS game, and it launches. I've managed to hide the console window (thanks Launchbox settings) and I've managed to use specific layouts for controllers via manual config file editing so my controls work. But I still require a mouse and keyboard... I want to make the R3 button on my controller do a CTRL + TAB key combination to swap screens and I want to press start + select to initiate a ALT + F4 to close the emulator. Because steam link forces my controller into a generic XBOX 360 controller setup with Dinput, I can't get Joy2key or xpadder to work, even if I launch them through steam. The last problem (which is a nightmare) is to use a c-stick/joystick to move an emulated mouse, and use L3 as a left click. I've heard of a few 3rd party programs but they need to start up before Citra does while inside of steam link so I'm thinking I need some sort of script. Is what I'm trying to do possible? Please share your success stories with me if you have any! Edit: From what I've researched so far, I should check out antimicro. Perhaps starting that should handle my woes for buttons (if that works) but I'd still like to see what you guys do. Edit #2: Antimicro actually handled the majority of my problems! If I start antimicro before starting Citra, I can use the c-stick as a mouse and have custom keyboard shortcuts like CTRL + TAB to swap screens by pressing R3. I'm going to script this into Launchbox, or have it run when the PC starts and just depend on profiles. I initially wanted start + select to end my games but I couldn't get combinations to work so I'm just holding start for 2 seconds to close now.
I recently got big box to stream my collection of games and emulators to my t.v. through steam link. The emulators launch and run great, but after 5-10 minutes of playing the steam link crashes and big box continues to run on my pc. I have tried it with every kind of game and emulator. My computer and steam link are both hardwired to the modem. I was wondering if anyone else has solved this issue as would like to keep using big box. I think its a fantastic front end. My computer specs if it matters: i7 4770k, gtx 980, 16gigs of ram
