Xinput "Home/ON/Xbox" button not recognised by AM?
« on: September 04, 2020, 08:55:48 AM »
I'd like to map that button as hotkey for ending process, but AM ignores competely my presses.
I've been using joy2key for this, since it does recognise the button, and i just map that to the emulators exit hotkey. But it'd be cleaner and easier to just do it from AM, if there's a way.

Is there a way?

Maybe you need an external script / software to recognize "Xbox 360 Guide Button". Here
AM Version : 2.6.1
Input : Mad Catz Brawlstick; Mouse; Keyboard; Xbox360 Wireless
Cabinet : Yes
OS : Windows10 Pro
System : Dell Precision T3500 ; Intel X5650 ; 12GB RAM

so joy2key it is...
As far as i've seen on that thread, AM only recognises basic joystick, no Xinput. So there's no workaround. I'll keep using joy2key profiles then. Thanks for the insight

the workaround is, told as told in post#2: using an external software.
following the threads, brings you to GuideToKey
With this software, you can set a keyboard-key to Guide-Button.
For example : 27 = ESC Button
Set the keyboard-button in AM, to exit emulator.
This workaround works. tested a few seconds ago.

yeah it's cool i've been using joy2key since a long time ago for other emulators with trickier settings and button mappings, i wanted to avoid creating another profile just for the exit button, but i guess there's no harm in that and it's simple enough
