  1. Pre-configured SumatraPDF + JoyToKey to view PDF's with a controller in LaunchBox View 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" Controls: D-Pad/Left analog stick: Up Down Left Right Right analog stick Up+Down/L+R triggers: Zoom in/out L+R bumpers: Go to First/Last page Cross (Green A on 360): Next page Square (Blue X on 360): Rotate image 90' Triangle (Yellow Y on 360): Cycle through zoom/fit to screen modes (reset zoom) Circle (Red B on 360): Exit SumatraPDF Forum thread Credits: JoyToKey SumatraPDF AutoHotKey Submitter teeedubb Submitted 03/22/2017 Category Third-party Apps and Plugins

  3. It took a little investigating to find a pdf viewer that supported both full-screen [upon opening] and a minimal footprint (sorry new Foxit reader versions). It turns out SumatraPDF does all of this with a few quick settings to set. Download (installer / portable zip , 32-bit / 64-bit ) I used the portable version. Put it somewhere you don't mind making it's permanent home. Run it once to create the necessary settings config file. Open the SumatraPDF-settings plain-text config file. Ensure the following settings are set: Set Esc key to escape the program EscToExit = true Under "FixedPageUI"... comment out the background line to turn off what is essentially a colored overlay on the pdf #BackgroundColor = #ffffff The only way to set the actual background behind the pdf is to set the following. I set a slight gradient but a single black #000000 can be set as well. GradientColors = #111111 #000000 A single whole page at a time as the default view DefaultDisplayMode = single page Set fullscreen as the default WindowState = 3 Obviously you'll need to set this as your default PDF viewer. This isn't tremendously difficult, but I'm sure others are looking for a possible solution to a front-end "hands-off"-ish manual viewing in BigBox. Esc is then set for exiting and the arrow keys will change pages. Set these with your controller(s) and your front-end solution should be good until there's a local pdf solution.
