Hello Bertinsly, well I'm in no way an expert on UAE4ARM, linux or Pi but did you try to change the selected peripherical in the input menu of the GUI ?
Well I also came here to ask a couple of questions.
Basically I'm trying to integrate UAE4ARM into Recalbox (a project comparable to Retropie but based on a custom linux built with builtroot) in a very user friendly way : just launch the game from Emulation Station and get back to Emulation Station when you want.
I'm pretty war away because I managed to do that for ADF and games in WHD format as well, but the controls configuration part is pretty obscure to me. I'm using version 0.5 by now.
I searched a lot about it either but Google or even trials with uae files but it's hard to find good documentation.
From what I understand pandora controls are somehow still hardcoded into UAE4ARM for Pi : when specifying no controls in a UAE file we still get the 'Nubs as Mouse' and 'dPad ad Joystick' automatically set.
Nubs seems to be able to link by itself to the mouse alright but for me the dPad ain't linking to my controller.
I read all kind of things from the Pyra forum to here to amiberry github/site to ls-uae configuraition but nothing is clear
So I was able to refine my uae config to use my controller with simple following configuration :
Code: Select all
I found that in Happiga or Amiberry configuration files but with a JOY0 on the last line but that wasn't working for me although the controller used by configuring JOY1 is the first one connected on the system.
So I have the following questions regarding controllers (mouse doesn't bother me):
- first how does uae4arm detects the controllers ? they appear in the input menu allright but how is it possible to launch the emulator with a specific controller connected to the system ? JOY0/1 seems awkward at worse and lucky at best, I would like to be able to automatically launch the emulator with a specific controller and for it to be immediately usable.
- second, when the first part is done how to automatically configure the button(s) to use on the controller ? the ones which are used seems to be defined randomly, is there anyway again to do that in a uae conf file ?
- third and last how can you configure the use of two joysticks instead of one mouse and joystick ?
I must say I used precompiled version of UAE4ARM because I don't have machine usable to compile at the moment, so I'm really searching for a solution using only conf files (for the moment I leave aside the issue concerning the exit of the emulator with a controller button or button combination)
