I actually use joy2key, which is wonderful but unless I am missing something about the software it doesn't really help with priority order of USB devices (controllers). I have to be honest my past couple of updates on windows 10 havent actually cause the issue but moving forward after this weekend I plan on adding 4 more USB controller connections (with eventual Additions of 2 Light guns also).

I would be interested in something similar if not for different reasons. I have an arcade machine which currently has 2 joystick set ups and 4 Gamecube controller connections. Often times when windows updates it loves to change the order of priority and I have to fix it. Would love to have a set order of priority.. especially since I plan on adding in 4 more USB controllers to the system soon

So note that my "emulator" is AutoHotkey and the roms are all .ahk files

It's honestly nothing to complicated but this is how I handle each PC game

Code: [Select]
Run, BloodstainedRotN.exe, E:\GOG\Bloodstained Ritual of the Night, max
KeyWait, Joy12, D
WinClose, ahk_exe BloodstainedRotN-Win64-Shipping.exe

Here is another example

Code: [Select]
Run, UNDERTALE.exe, E:\New folder\Undertale, max
sleep, 5000
Send {F4}
KeyWait, Joy12, D
WinClose, ahk_exe UNDERTALE.exe

My script simply is designed to run the software and wait for a push from a button, in my case its mapped to exit button I have through my joystick controller. I apologize for not posting it last night. I honestly forgot after working a 12 hour shift. I made a note to myself and will try again this afternoon to send you a copy of that script.

For the controls I often times use JoytoKey to assign specific Joystick movements and buttons to keyboard inputs since some of my computer games don't support my boards that I use for my arcade joysticks and buttons.

Hmm didn't even think of using some type of USB white list software, I will look into that. That is really really good idea and appreciate the input greatly!

Thank you, I Will keep that in mind. I may end up installing all 4 ports just for future system possibilities. I may end up installing small LED lights above each of the controller slots and lighting them up for whats needed. I use LED Wiz and should be easy enough to set up. I take my arcade machine to a few locale conventions so I try to avoid letting people have easy access to USB slots on the machine, I am afraid of someone damaging the machine through the USB.

When I run windows games I actually run everything through an AutoHot key Script. When I get home I will post some example code here. I just have the script monitor for the button press and it forces the windows game closed. Main reason I did this is for certain games needed some additional keyboard inputs at launch and set all my games the same way.

I have successfully set up my 2 joystick configs, I have also installed 4 gamecube controller slots on the front of my arcade machine. I was considering adding in PS2 controller ports for future emulation that a gamecube controller really doesn't work great for. This is most likely going to start out just being for a PS2 library.

My question is, should I simply just install 2 ports or go ahead install 4

This is a nice setup and if and when I add dos box to my rig I think I will definitely use this. Is there an option to change the Delay for when the videos start while selecting games?

Themes / Looking for a theme I could edit into a Doom theme

What I am looking for in a theme -

Background image
Rotating wheel for file choices
Snap image
A text box so I can list complete descriptions of the WADs

Any themes that might have the parts I am looking for that I can edit. My biggest hurdle so far was finding themes that had text description options.

This is awesome and I may end up using this one instead of what I have now. Great work!

Are you referring to file names? What are you using for a theme? You can alter the theme files to remove this text. Let me know which theme you are using and I can try to fix that for you.
