  1. Hey! I really liked reading about your success with PadStarr and iPac. I have an ultimate and am having a hell of a time setting up PadStarr with my Ultimate and getting it to work. That, and I don't know which would be the best keyboard keys to program my ipac on to.

    Would you be interested in sharing your padstarr config files and any spreadsheets or planning documents that you used to get to your setup?

    Thanks! I just finished my Dreamcast themed arcade too, if you want to have a look.

      Hi, nice cab, you really covered all possible controller needs. :)

      As for Padstarr, I'm still using it, and am pretty happy with it. It might be slightly hampered by the fact that the developer disappeared and development stopped, but it's pretty much the complete package already.

      As long as you remember to add exclusions to all programs that have the controller configured within the program or emulator, and when adding paths to programs that you set up a profile for, add the path both to the folder AND the exe,  as there is a buggy error message about corrupted files that might pop up otherwise.

      That being said, you might have misunderstood one thing, I never used Padstarr for anything else than the XBOX 360 controller. So any profiles and/ or config files would be pretty specific to me. Although i did post some of those profiles in the thread I believe.

      I still might be able to help you out if you have some more specific questions?

      I'll have a look at the thread again to see what I missed. As for your set-up, I'm hoping to do something similar by mapping everything to the Xbox pad as well, as it's more likely to be compatible with the widest number of emulators, and the buttons, axes and joysticks double for most of what I have set-up on my cab.

      Specifically, I'm wondering a few things about yours. 

      1. Padstarr recognizes my IPAC Ultimate as two separate controllers (IPAC 1&2). Did you have that happen?

      2. I'll build a profile intended to be recognized as a 360 Xinput controller, but most emulators insist on recognizing the keyboard inputs instead of the padstarr profile, despite the profile being activated, even when running as admin. Did you ever have this happen? 

      Thanks again for your post -- once I get this all running, I'm hoping to make a video about my crazy control set-up that describes how it all works. I have a feeling that your suggestion will get me there.

      1 & 2, didn't have/try that, so not sure.

  2. Some people are saying that they never had the problem in Windows 10 that I described above, yet many have reported it as well. I haven't checked this again as Padstarr is working for me. Did you mean to say that you have the same problem I described somewhere here?

  4. Setting "Roms Only" when roms are in subfolders?

    Sounds like a smart solution. Thanks for the post.

  6. If you ever get an error about "The configuration data is corrupt! Padstarr cannot load this profile" in Padstarr, the solution is to go to game settings for that profile (game/emulator), and delete the path to the .exe, instead enter the path to the .exe's folder. That should do it.

    Nice, and they're still mushrooms, gave you one...

    Hey! Thanks for mentioning me twice! ?
  9. (Android) Working Systems List

    In Retroarch or Scummvm, but better to run them directly in those, if you set the games up in Hyperspin you have to put all files from separate games in one folder, so it gets really messy fast. Although you could do it if you only wanted to add a couple of games and they didn't have any files that were named the same.
  10. Shield Controller crashes Reicast r7

    Tested it, same here. And screen is flashing, and menu is weird. It's not exactly the only game that doesn't work properly in Reicast, so I would just leave it at that. Hopefully, a later version of the emulator could fix the game.
  11. Shield Controller crashes Reicast r7

    @thatman84 Fixed it. Basically you just have to reinstall reicast making sure to delete all data and the cache and start anew. Should maybe have messed around more before posting.... Don't know why this is happening, and it doesn't seem to be related to just this version, see: http://forums.reicast.com/index.php?topic=1553.msg2444#msg2444
  12. I set up Dreamcast. Downloaded last nightly, it's called just r7 in Shield settings. Looked at Thatman's Setup Notes. Basic setup works as expected. Setup Shield controllers, I have two of them. Launched a game, it starts up. Now, as soon as I touch any button on any of the controllers, Reicast crashes. I tried restarting, disabling the second controller, changing all options in Launch Editor for the controllers, still the same. Anyone? I should add that if I click in the game window with my mouse the touch controls appear and I can click around with my mouse without any crashes.
  13. Retroarch dual config trick

    Thanks, this worked for me so I could fix three systems that weren't reading their bioses. But I don't quite follow why you need access to data/data? The retroarch.cfg is in data/user/0/com.retroarch as you mentioned? I'm on 1.3.6, by the way.
