Maximus arcade navigation controls
« on: January 23, 2013, 09:32:29 pm »
Hi everyone

I have just started using maximus arcade frontend so I can run multiple emulators.  I am a long time user of Mamewah (great program).

My question is can you program the "esc" button to do multiple things.  I want it to quit the game, use it to switch between emulators and also close down the frontend.  This was possible in mamewah.
When I go to program the esc button in more than one field in maximus arcades preferences it disappears from the field I programmed it into before.

I want to keep my control panel simple, I don't really want to install new buttons for the extra commands.

Thanks
Legin

AHHH should have tested it before posting.

If I have esc programmed to shutdown the computer, emulator and executable it will shut down the computer from a game screen.  Take away shutdown computer and it shuts down the emulator and so on.  It still looks like I need separate buttons. 

Anyone have a work around??

time delay on the shutdown and quit so you could have it that hitting esc closes the game back to MA holding for 3secs closes MA hold it for 5 secs Shutsdown the pc.
