How to setup a controller with launchbox's interface By tonyApril 27, in Noobs. Reply to this topic Start new topic. Recommended Posts. Posted April 27, The only thing keeping me from hiding the keyboard and mouse completely is the need to use it on launchbox's menus.
I know launchbox has controller support. I just don't know how to set it up. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. Go in to the settings and enable the option and select your controller.
However LaunchBox proper has limited controller support, BigBox is entirely controller oriented. That said, I would probably still keep the mouse and keyboard close by for when you need to use Windows, add or edit games, or change settings in LB.
Otherwise BigBox would be the way to go for full controller support. Join the conversation You can post now and register later. Reply to this topic Insert image from URL. Go To Topic Listing.

The alternative method is to use the XInput pad handler along with ScpToolkit. This option carries various benefits and drawbacks as mentioned in the table above. To use the XInput pad handler for the DualShock However, doing so will cause the DualShock 3 controller to lose pressure-sensitive buttons and behave as a regular XInput device.
There aren't any additional steps required and the controller should just work with RPCS3's dedicated DualShock 4 pad handler.
When using the evdev pad handler on Linux, some users may encounter cases where the analog sticks of the controller are not centered but stuck in the corner of the movement zone. This issue occurs when incorrect drivers are used for the controller. However, some controllers use positive ranges for analog sticks as well which does not directly work with RPCS3's implementation.
Hence, the following workaround is required:. This is not an exhaustive list of options available. Users are requested to toggle other options as required by their specific controller or driver.

Coupled with Retroarch, this makes for a clean, consistent experience across all platforms, and no need to mess about adding hundreds of non-steam applications. Most emulators work very well with the Steam Controller 'out of the box' but there are a few that need a bit of tweaking to set up.
Having spent a long while trawling the internet for tips and guides on how to get the Steam Controller to work with various emulators I thought I'd try and put it all together in a single guide. It is not a comprehensive guide to all emulators, simply because there are just so many, but I will attempt to add as much info as I can and update the guide with any tips or suggestions from others. This guide only covers tips on how to get your Steam Controller fully functioning with certain emulators, it is not intended to include any controller configuration guides.

The following emulators all work with the Steam Controller out of the box, allow full customisation of both Gamepad and KBM inputs, and work with the Steam Overlay I haven't tested the multi-platform emulators myself, I'm told they work fine, but let me know if not : RetroArch [www.PC gaming enthusiasts might brag that the mouse and keyboard is the best control scheme, but while a mouse's precision works well in genres such as first-person shooters and strategy games, many titles with third-person perspectives -- especially those ported from consoles -- are best played with a controller.
Whether you're more comfortable using a directional pad with tricky 2D platforming or you need an analog stick to move in more than eight directions in an action game, the option is there to hook up a controller, lean back and play in comfort.
Most recently released controllers work on the computer without much effort, though those from the PS3 and PS4 require unofficial drivers. Whether labeled as a PC controller or not, every wired Xbox controller works on Windows. To set up the controller on any Windows system back to XP SP 2, download the software from Microsoft's website and install it before connecting the controller.
If you have Windows 8, the system should pick up on the controller automaticallybut if it doesn't, download the Windows 7 version of the software.
Wireless controllers require a special adapter that comes with wireless controllers designed for PC. These controllers also include an installation CD for the adapter, in case your computer doesn't recognize it automatically.
Xbox One controllers require you to manually install a driver, which you can download from Microsoftbefore you connect the controller with a micro USB cable: The wireless functionality is not supported.
Unlike the controller, Xbox One controllers only support systems back to Windows 7but otherwise work similarly. Thanks to the controller's popularity on PC, most computer games with controller support use XInput, a system for interpreting controller button presses.
In turn, most PC controller manufacturers also design XInput controllers that work with Microsoft's official drivers. Older controllers -- or those designed to work with old games -- use DirectInput instead, or offer a DirectInput toggle.
These controllers might require or offer more features when used with software provided by the manufacturer, which is usually included with the controller or offered online. Sony does not offer PC drivers for PlayStation 3 or 4 controllers -- even though Windows recognizes and charges a PS3 controller attached by USB, the controller isn't recognized by any games.
To get these controllers working, you need to use third-party software or hardware. The easiest, though most expensive, option is to buy a USB controller adapter, which takes care of the incompatibility. DS4Windows offers a self-explanatory setup, but MotioninJoy is a bit trickier. To switch to wireless use on PCs with a Bluetooth adapter, click "Pair Now" in the tool's Bluetooth options before disconnecting the cable.
Regardless of which controller you use, the Control Panel on Windows 7 or 8 provides basic controller settings. Press "Windows-R" and run "joy. Some games require you to set up your controls using these numbers. Switch to the "Settings" tab to recalibrate your controller if the analog sticks don't respond correctly. After checking that your controller works, start up a game and use the in-game options to switch to the controller and, if the game allows, customize the buttons.
Some old games require you to pick a preferred controller, which you can set with the "Advanced" button in the Control Panel. If a game doesn't support a controller at all, try binding buttons to keyboard keys using a program such as the free JoyToKey or the paid, but more user-friendly, Xpadder.

LaunchBox Premium with Big Box
About the Author. Photo Credits.Discussion in ' Guides, Mods, and Upgrades ' started by elmoretJul 17, Joined: Mar 1, Messages: Likes Received: I've had the opportunity to test the Duet Wifi for about a month now, and the short version is that I'm really impressed with it.
I've probably printed around things for my business, so at this point 3D printing has become a bit mundane. The Duet Wifi has made things a bit more enjoyable though - it is so well thought out and just pleasant to use.
I often times have to turn and look at the printer to determine if it has finished the print, as I can't hear the motors over the fans. No need to compile or upload firmware, just edit the relevant line of g-code in config. RichRap3D has already posted a similar thread on his experiences here so be sure to check that out as well. If you need one of these cut, just email me - username at gmail. Unfortunately the wifi antenna covers one of the mounting holes for the plate.
This could be remedied by tweaking the DXF file to accept leftover threaded inserts instead from the BigBox kit. I would have done this if I had them nearby to measure when making the DXF. It is helpful to either do one connection at a time, or to label all the cables so they don't get mixed up. There isn't always room on the front of the board for details about a particular connector, but if you look on the backside you'll often have the needed information.
The wiring diagram is a good resource to have as well. Here's the DuetWifi installed: I've circled each grouping of connectors, in some cases some slight changes are needed. Starting at the upper left: Yellow: These are the hotend heaters. I only have one hotend, but the other one would install here as well. Heaters do not care about polarity. Dark Green: These are the motor connections.
Really the only thing that needs discussion here is the Z connection. Since the Duet Wifi doesn't have screw terminals, you'll need to add connectors commonly referred to as "dupont connectors" to be able to connect the motors. You can see this in the photo, the cables I used were red. I also left the Z-motors connected in parallel.
It is often recommended to connect in series and the Duet board makes this easy with a second set of headers right there next to the set I used, but I opted not to in order to have a better direct comparison to the stock RUMBA.
Light Blue: This is the hotend thermistor connection. In this photo I was using one of E3D's new thermistor cartridges for the hotend, but you can also use the stock PT sensor.
If you do so, you need the PT add-on board. Note that thermistors also do not care about polarity, either is OK. Dark Blue: These are the endstop connectors. You only need to connect X and Y here, the Z-probe is handled later.
Note that the connector pinout is different from what you might be used to, as a result you need to carefully remove one of the pins from the connector. On the Duet Wifi, you want the endstop to be connected to the outside pins of the connector.Tired of that same old Windows color theme?
