How to configure/map picade joystick and buttons for amiberry


#1

Hi I’ve had the picade for some time now and I’ve recently started doing amigaemulation which is well and good with my ps3 controller through bluetooth - but I can’t get the picade joystick to do ANYTHING in the amiga emulators like Amiberry.

Can anyone help me?

Hello

I have the same problem here with uea4arm and amiberry.

  • Is there a way to use the Picade joystick and buttons in Amiga emulation without modifying and recompiling uae4all (and losing the keyboard in the process)?
  • About uae4all: I have to confess that I don’t understand what “the controls are hardcoded” means while still being able to setup “custom controls” in the GUI (but they don’t work)!
  • Would reconfiguring the Arduino (the new firmware allows it) to act like a pad instead of a keyboard solve the problem? But then, are there no problems with other emulators wo would rather need a keyboard?

@jacom.melin: could you solve the problem?

Regards
Patrick

OK, this seems to be a dead thread.

In case it could interest somebody later, I found a solution which works with amiberry only:

  • install the latest amiberry (I did it from source, it would probably work also from binary)
  • the working settings in the GUI (F12) are: Input/Port 1 = “Retroarch keyboard as Joystick”
  • no other settings necessary

Still trying to find it out with uae4arm, as it seems to be more compatible than amiberry.
