Arcade cab button mapping suggestions

Recommended Posts

Hi All

im in the process of swapping hyperspin for Bigbox on my arcade cabinet.  I have a 2 player (7 button)  cab with player credit and start buttons for each along with an exit and pause buttons.

it all comes down to personal preference, but, I was wondering what Ui shortcuts others have mapped to their control panels and how they layed them out.

I don't have a cab, but I have a shortcut for my xbox controller that starts a "kill all and restore" script I made. It kills all emulators, BigBox, RocketLauncher, and EventGhost. Then it restores BigBox, and EventGhost. It's great for those times when something crashes or locks up for some reason. If I had a cab I'd have a hidden button under the control panel, to launch that script.

Well I'll tell you what I've learned. From experience you will make thing a lot easier on yourself if you setup your Arcade control panel using the MAME defaults emulating keyboard presses . Don't set it up like a game you controller. You will have conflicts if you ever want to use a game controller in conjunction with your Arcade controller. For example you might love your Arcade controller for MAME games but an XBOX 360 controller for Nintendo 64 games.
