Mapping joypad to keyboard outside X environment (for XBMC)

Does anyone know any software I can use to map joypad button presses to either mouse actions or keyboard actions, outside of an X environment? I've tried joy2key and antimicro but they both require running inside X. I want this so I can control XBMC with a joypad, but sadly XBMC doesn't run in X. Al...

Re: RELEASE: EmulationStation 2.0-RC1

just a thought but maybe you should check the quote marks in these lines: input_enable_hotkey_btn = “8″ input_exit_emulator_btn = “9″ input_save_state_btn = “11″ input_load_state_btn = “10″ visually, they are different from others which might be an artifact of copying them through some other source

Quite a lot - just over a thousand. It's quicker now I'm using the SD card instead but still slower than I'd expect

Re: RELEASE: EmulationStation 2.0-RC1

It's something to do with storing the downloaded images on my external drive because my ntfs-3g process is at 66% for the whole duration that the working icon is frozen. I'm surprised it's accessing the disk so much, but I suppose I'll just remove the symlink for now. Cheers. (It's still strange tha...

Re: RELEASE: EmulationStation 2.0-RC1

There's nothing in es_log.txt apart from notifications the gamelists have been parsed, and some errors about sounds being missing.

I did expand my partition, but I also have my roms / downloaded_images / gamelists directories symlinked to an external hard drive anyway.

I'll do some investigating...

Re: RELEASE: EmulationStation 2.0-RC1

My only real issue is that scraping is extremely slow. It takes about 90 seconds per game from thegamesdb, but used to be much less that with the previous method of calling the script directly. Is there any logging output I can get to see what's taking so long? If I scrape games individually it is ...
