  1. Hi there! I've been struggling a bit with Bigbox and I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I've cobbled together an Arcade machine using Windows 7 and an xarcade kit (similar to a tankstick) . My goal is to run Bigbox without a mouse and keyboard - just using the arcade buttons and joystick. I've struggled a bit with exiting each emulator - but I've had success by using an AHK script found in the support forums (pasted below.) It closes the game fine, but when I do - bigbox is not in the foreground of Windows (instead I need to click on it once with a mouse. My goal is to not use a mouse - but I'm not sure if this is a Bigbox, my use of the ahk script, or something I need to fix inside of windows. Any ideas would be most appreciated! Thanks in advance! ~4 & 2:: Duration=0 Loop { Duration ++ If !GetKeyState("4","P") || !GetKeyState("2","P") Break If Duration > 2 { Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}} break } Sleep, 1000 } return
  2. I am building a MAME cabinet using a Windows 10 PC and Big Box. I am using the Xarcade Dual Joystick as the input. My finished setup will not have an exposed keyboard. Emulators used are MAME, NEStopia, SNES9X and Fusion. I have everything figured out except for one pivotal thing. Closing emulators easily and consistently the with the Esc key when I have no keyboard (or additional controller) present. The Xarcade does not have a dedicated, mapped Esc key (it probably should, but I can’t do anything about that). SO in this case forums seem to push AHK as a solution. I played with AHK for a couple of hours with many script variations and wasn’t able to create a clean solution. Results were inconsistent between emulators. Bottom line, I’m never going to be a AHK superuser..and that’s okay. I don’t think I should have to be to get this to work. I’ve lost confidence in the idea that AHK is the correct route for me. And I feel like I’m missing something and I feel like Big Box is missing something. I’m confused as to why a simple feature is not implemented within Big Box options to bridge Big Box’s ability to universally close any of my emulators with the Esc key and the Xarcade control deck (which I assume is pretty widely used across the Big Box user base), such as a configurable key combination being held for a certain amount of time triggering the current emulator to close. Like I said, I’ve tried many AHK scripts from the forum and I haven't found a workable consistent solution. Does anyone have an elegant, simple solution for me that does not require me to reprogram my Xarcade buttons? That would be my last resort. Thank you for your help.
  3. Please help as i am losing my mind! I am having some severe issues with the x-arcade tankstick working with Launchbox/bigbox 7.1. First of all i was having issues binding keys in retroarch. Every time i try and bind keys it says error unable to save configuration file. So i moved on from trying to use retroarch for a all-in-one emulator. So i first started with basic ahk script inside the emulator edit tab. I used a few basic commands to exit emulator and remap a few keys such as alt and cntrl that are standard buttons on the tankstick. Launchbox/bigbox completely ignores everything in the autohotkey tab. I run the same commands in autohotkey outside of launch box and everything works great. I open a notepad file and all buttons map correctly. I also download fusion and set controls based on the newly mapped buttons and works flawlessly. I then leave it all as it's working, point launchbox emulator to fusion (works in standalone), and nothing works now. Everything works fine outside of launchbox and i am not having much luck with finding others with similar issues. I am so confused and it stinks because i love this interface so much, but if i can't get any help i will have to try something else. I feel im pretty tech savvy, so this is very disappointing. Can anyone please give me a hand? I thoroughly hate asking for help, but would be extremely grateful for any pointers at all. gk
