Add Delay to exit button, help
« on: April 25, 2019, 11:15:04 AM »
How can I add a delay to an exit button?
I'm setting up Attract Mode on a racing cabinet and I only have 3 buttons plus the analog controls to navigate through the front end.
I'm used to Maximus Arcade that it has this option to add a delay to any button, so for example, I should press a button for 3 seconds to exit the emulator and go back to the front end.

I can't find any info about this.
Any help would be appreciated!

What about pushing two buttons at the same time to exit.

thanks for your reply.
I have it know configured as you say, but I prefer the delay button method.
I see that there's no way to do this without extra software, maybe it can be added in the next release.

@gleegum
this is an external script for autoit. maybe it's helpful if you are using windows (thanks to Yashied):

Code: [Select]
#Include <Misc.au3>

Global $Pressed = False

While 1
    Sleep(1)
;44 = d on keyboard
;Button Overview : https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/libfunctions/_IsPressed.htm
    If _IsPressed('44') Then
        If $Pressed Then
            If TimerDiff($Timer) > 3000 Then
                ;msgbox(0, "", "D three seconds pressed")
;Send Keylist : https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/Send.htm
send("{ESC}")
;Exit
            EndIf
        Else
            $Timer = TimerInit()
            $Pressed = 1
        EndIf
    Else
        If $Pressed Then
            ConsoleWrite(Round(TimerDiff($Timer) / 1000, 2) & ' seconds' & @CR)
            $Pressed = 0
        EndIf
    EndIf
WEnd

compile it > start it with windows (autostart and so on) > if you press and hold d on keyboard for 3 seconds, it sends ESC. Script loops.

If you want running script only once/don't loop script, then change ;Exit to Exit (remove semicolon).
