Exiting Redream back into Bigbox

Recommended Posts

I'd like to exit Redream directly back into Bigbox by pushing start and select on my controller like every other emulator I'm running.  I presently have to push esc on the keyboard and then click close with the mouse.  Any help would be appreciated!

Use this AHK scrip in your Redream Edit Emulator window

$Esc::
{
    Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}}
}

You can also set a button in the emulator1497298989_2018-10-0523_06_51-redream.thumb.jpg.0ed73b6bfc2f8b27dda0699ae09b5d32.jpg

Yes, with Launchbox's Controller Automation function, it will send the AHK script I posted above and close it out.

Or you could use some other 3rd party software such as Xpadder or Controller Companion if you want to set up your own custom exit key combo.

Sorry for being a noob now, but how does that work? I mean the code is specifically used for ESC key :/

Let say that I want to exit the game by using Select + D-Pad right... Would that be possible??

Nooo hahaha not a third party software! xD

I used Xpadder, rocket launcher etc when I used HyperSpin, and it was such a pain and too much of a hassle to make it work... It didn't even work sometimes :P

The above AHK script gets put in the Running Hotkey Script tab of the Edit Emulator window for your Redream entry in Lunchbox.screenshot_260.thumb.jpg.68f2962c53075c29134c050cf8620e1f.jpg

Then you set your Controller Automation button combo that you want to use in Launchbox and BigBox, they are separate.screenshot_261.thumb.jpg.239ee809214b972675f75e8fd124679d.jpgYour button combo when pressed will send the AHK script command to the emulator and close it out.

Too bad Redream closed sourced it so we can't use it on RetroArch.. But oh well :)
