BigBox volume control issue

Recommended Posts

I've mapped 2 buttons on my control panel using winIPAC to VOL up and down.  Works perfect in windows explorer.  I've also mapped the buttons to VOL up and down in BigBox.  When I hit either volume button BigBox freezes and continues to apply whichever volume button I hit for 30 seconds, then it proceeds to raise and lower the volume while not allowing me to do anything other than ctrl+alt+del.  Everything else works great, but the volume control in BigBox is the last piece of the puzzle before actually start to build the arcade cab.

Using LB 7.4.  I just tested the volume control in each system that I have running and in game volume works fine.  It's only in BB that I have the issue.

I had a similar issue with BB totally freezing until I enabled the BB setting to use all controllers. Just a long shot, but maybe give it a try? For me BB totally freezes simply by enabling my second controller or at launch time if both controllers are enabled, if I don't set the setting to use all controllers. So, it's different than your issue, but related to controllers and BB freezing...

I did a bit of a 180 and disabled all controllers in BB. The only commands it responds to are that from the keyboard.  Even the mouse and trackball are disabled when in BB.  Volume is working now.

Ok I have exact same issue as described above. Only enabling all or disabling all controllers didn't do it for me. The problem is only in BigBox. Not in Launchbox. It also only happens in the menus interface. If I am in a game both volume buttons work fine. If I am in a menu screen within Bigbox and hit either the volume up or down buttons Bigbox will freeze. This happens if I hit the keyboard volume or control panel volume. I am also up to date on the latest release.

Just updated luanch box and installed ipac 2 and know freezing occurs when using volume buttons.

I have unplugged the iPac2 and the problem persists with the keyboard. Tried to reinstall settings but no change.  Is use big box as a my music front end this is a bummer.
