[Help] 2 physical joystick to be assign to1 joy button
« on: June 23, 2019, 03:34:02 pm »
Hi everyone,

I just want to know if there is a way to do this because at the moment i have 2 arcade stick and 4 usb controller (looks similar to PS2 controller) and what i want to achieve is map the 2 arcade stick and 2 PS2 to same controls so i can control the games to what ever joypad or gamepad of my choice.

I looked at J2K but there's a limitation. I need 96 keyboard keys to setup 4 players and keyboard keys is not enough.

I tried AHK but it does not work, it is something like this:
Joy1:: joy1button1
Joy2:: joy1button1

Anyone knows a solution? Please help me. Thanks!

The best solution to this if you have wired buttons in your fight sticks would be to re-wire the buttons on them the same as your game pads.

You could do it with software but you will introduce more lag.

Atleast that is what I would do if I understand your question correctly....

Thanks for the reply, if I re-wire it like what you said does that mean that I dont have to plug on of them anymore? What about the power? The way i understand what you said is for example UP button on my ps2 controller will be in series or soldered to UP direction of fight stick, am i correct?

If only game config controls could be like MAME where I can bind no matter how many buttons I want for PUSH 1 for example.
