Unable to map cab buttons to Model 2 emulator

Recommended Posts

Hi, as above. Not sure if I'm missing something as hours of searching and reading doesn't bring up any similar issue elsewhere!

When selecting a button to map on the emulator for coin, start etc my cabinet buttons don't register. I have to use a wireless keyboard to select a key. I have xinput set to 1 in the config file.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've just installed aimtrak lightguns and would love to be able to use them without resorting to keyboard key presses for coin etc.

Hi

If you are using an xinput joystick you can use x360ce to interface between the direct input emulator and the joystick.

You shouldn't need x360ce to work with Model 2 Emulator. It will recognize x-input devices as long as you have XInput=1 in the emulator.ini 

Launch a game and go into the controls configuration. Double click the control you want to set and hit the corresponding button on your controller. In this image you can see I change up and down from my Xarcade keyboard map to my Xbox controller Joy 1 Up and Joy 1 Down. 

@StubieD You are having issue mapping to the Aimtrack correct? Not a game controller or arcade controls?

Hi, thanks for the replies!

It's the cabinet buttons that are not registering with the program. I double click on the control to change (player 1 start for example) and then nothing will register. I then have to press a button on the attached usb keyboard to get back to the emulator.

I'm using xin-mo usb interfaces that work great with every other emulator I've tried!

I can get round it using joy2key but that gets messy swapping profiles all the time.

I feel like it must be something simple wrong with my setup as I can't find any threads with other people having the issue! 🤷‍♂️

Any further ideas greatly appreciated.
