Tips on exiting certain emulators with a button press or a combination of button presses.


Recommended Posts

Use Controller Automation. It has to be configured in both Launchbox and Big Box.

In Launchbox it's in Tools -> Options -> Input -> Gamepad/Joystick -> Automation. You need to enable automation and then indicate a key to "hold" and then another button to combine with it for different functions. In your case "Close the active window":

I can make the current game exit in Dolphin but then get a prompt "Do you want to stop current emulation" I cannot get back to Big Box till hitting yes on Keyboard. Is there any way to get around this?? I want to exit back to Bix Box directly from Gamepad without keyboard being needed.
