How to setup arcade controls in Launchbox/Bigbox

i have a little problem which i'm sure the answer is in front of my eyes...

till now, i was using a Xbox controller with LB/BB/Mame and all was working great. Now i have made an arcade cabinet and replaced the xbox controller with an arcade panel connected to the PC with an IPAC (in keyboard emulation mode).

when i play in Mame, no problem, all the controls are working fine, but in Launchbox/Bigbox, only the direction controls works. I tried to go in the option to set the control mapping but when i try to press a button on my arcade panel, nothing happens like it's not detected.

Any help would be welcome, coz i really dont know how to setup this mess, knowing everything is ok in MAME.

If its emulating a keyboard you need to set it up in Bigbox under keyboard, not controller.

ok, i'm stupid :) why am i trying to configure LB when i need something in BB.......... my brain needs some sleep.

Well, to your defense.  I do the same brain logic.  To OUR defense, many many many time a setup in BB has to be done in LB.  All, playlist, emulator, platform and so on.  So, first reflex is to go and look into LB for it.

Cheers
