BigBox Edit games via Xbox controller command

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

i have a premium LB account and have seen the option to be able to exit games inside big box but I don’t have a clue of how to set it up or if this affects on the current game controls. For instance, I’d like something like in RetroArch when you can configure going back to main menu via start+select buttons.

Thanks in advance

Its in options/controller automation. You need to set a hold button, then whatever button you want to exit. So when in game you hold your hold button and press the button you set for exit. This combo sends a escape command to the emulator.

Do you mean setting a hold button plus a close the active window button? if so, depending on the used emulator, it does not take you straight to the previous bigbox menu. (Tried that with epsxe i.e.)

Some emulators need a extra step, add this to the autohotkey tab of the emulator in the manage emulators section.

; This section closes PCSX2 when pressing Escape
$Esc::
{
	Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}}
}

 Like this, (ignore the mouse move part).

Hi Neil,

After trying that, it takes me straight out of BigBox. My intention with this was to get the game view menu (prior step to playing the game). It happens with ePSXe only for now (not even need the code for PCSX2).

Without the code I get this (screenshot below).

There is no issue using the Esc key on the keyboard but I do have it when using the x360 automation keys. I have assigned the "back" button as the one to hold and then to close window the "start" button.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

For your input options in epsxe are you using the lilypad plugin or the ePSXe core? If lilypad open the configure settings for the plugin I believe there is either a "disable confirm on exit" option or something like "Exit emulator on close". Try one of those options to see if it helps. I cannot remember for sure as I am not at home. I use the lilypad plugin and have the same AHK Neil mentioned and ePSXe exits properly.

Hello mate,

I am using the default ePSXe core 2.0. In fact, I have been digging to find some exit confirmation option with no results. What are the benefits of that lilypad plugin facing the default core and where can I get it?

Thanks.

It is a windows pad plugin that has a bunch of feature options you can mess with. Not sure about its origins, I just know it has some useful features and is usable in ePSXe and PCSX2. You should be able to find it on the PCSX2 forum. If you google "lilypad plugin" the first link should take you to the forum thread on it. It has been around a few years but still works.
