MaLa Recognizing Buttons After "Emulator" Started
« on: September 01, 2016, 02:58:40 am »
MaLa is recognizing my arcade cabinet buttons even after I launch a PC game or app (kodi), and RELAUNCHING the same game every time I hit it. MaLa does not have focus at this point.

This doesn't happen when I run Mame from MaLa.

Using Windows 7 64

Should I maybe use Joy2Key instead of allowing Joystick control directly in MaLa?

Looks like I solved my own problem - or rather JoyToKey did. :)

(if anyone has a solution that doesn't involve JoyToKey I'm still interested)

If anyone else has this problem, download JoyToKey, set up a new profile for each program - in my case MaLa and KODI (xbmc).

Make sure to set it to revert to the "default" profile if neither program has focus in Windows. You have a few options here.

So far so good. Not the ideal solution, but it works fine. If it still does after more testing I will purchase it ;)
