Xpadder, I want it gone. How?

Recommended Posts

I have exactly *zero* use for Xpadder, as I'm running a JAMMA cabinet with a J-Pac to a Windows PC. Because I have an actual standard resolution arcade monitor, I have the monitor set at, surprise surprise, standard resolution. Every time I start a game, I get a Windows Pop-Up from Xpadder saying the resolution too low. Mind you, the games play just fine, but the pop-ups are beyond annoying. And when I finally go to shut downs, there's like 100 popups that are there to be closed out.

I need this to stop, and I can't figure out how to do this.

did you buy or download a pre configured drive?

if you built this set up yourself

why did you install Xpadder in the first place?

simple fix is to delete xpadder and disable xpadder use in RL.

Reasons to not buy pre-built Hyperspin setups.

Yeah, I'm figuring that out, and quickly. He made it seem like that he'd offer all kinds of support including logging into my machine via TeamViewer if I was having problems and whatnot, nope. Nothing. 

I asked him a simple question about how to run Mame games that are looking for an analog stick like Afterburner, Star Wars, and Sinistar with a digital stick, and the guy has no idea. I'm under the impression he just plays his games on an LCD with an Xbox 360 controller, and he hasn't ever actually built a MAME cab. He didn't even know what a J-Pac is.

All I want is for this thing to work with my standard 6 button, 2 player fighting game layout. The cabinet is a Killer Instinct 2. I'm having to use the keyboard for most of the commands, including the "Start" command. That's just unacceptable, especially for what he charged me.

if you came here first we would of warned you about people like that.

not only did he rip you off,, but Xpadder is a 3rd party program that costs $10.  I doubt he gave that  money to the developer.

the reason that tool added Xpadder is because their are some issues controlling Hyperspin with a joystick.

since you are using a keyboard encoder ,  you will not have that problem.


if yo go to YouTube and search "hyperspin xpadder setup".

you will find multiple videos on how to set up Xpadder in RL.

simply do the reverse of what they do so that you can remove Xpadder form your set up.

Well at least they saved you some downloads/time as if its a good copy should have a lot of media available depending on its age.

That being said, now comes to battle of looking in from the outside.


Working with your own setup, whilst takes time it gives you exposure of where/how things are setup.

If you wanted you could start a fresh on a new drive/partition but then import single platfroms media etc. from the pre-configured drive and set them up yourself.


I started With Simply Austins packs.. from youtube. And whilst they were great I felt it hard working from someone else's setup only knowing what was explained.

That was a little over a year ago.. Now I create my own wheels and media and try and setup everything I can before I hit a wall and have to question experts in the field here.

Then of course if I deem it nice enough I share it here to try and give back to that has given me so much.

Hey man, I advise you to disable Xpadder and buy JoytoKey. It's worth it. It's much more stable, reliable, and powerful.

I'm not sure how your drive seller has Xpadder implemented (as there's multiple ways to do it) but you will need to figure that out. You can make JoytoKey run as your 'startup' program with HyperSpin via HyperHQ, or if you know how you can just create a batch file (that launches multiple programs) and make that your startup 'program' with HyperSpin.

There's a little bit of a learning curve to all this and I think it's better if you take the time to tinker with it and learn a thing or two, but once you figure it out you shouldn't have any issues.

he does not need Joytokey,  he is using a J-Pac witch is essentially an Ipac (keyboard encoder) with a Jamma Board adapter.

      I need a bit of help with setting up controls in Taito Type X.
      I have tried following Gigapig's Taito Type X setup guide but when using the typex_config.exe and getting it configured to use an xbox 360 madcatz fightstick; however, I cannot do diagonal movements like jump left or jump right.
      I tried using the pad_config.exe and changed the inputs to match the fightstick, but the results were the same (no diagonal movements). So I purchased Xpadder and learnt that it maps keystrokes to the gamepad. I have no idea what the key stroke layout is as I changed it in pad_config.exe. 
      Does anyone have the keystroke layout for Taito Type X or can I choose the keys to be whatever in pad_config.exe and then map it to Xpadder.  
      Thanks in advance.

      Je souhaiterais pouvoir lancer certains jeux avec un profil de manette spécifique qui inverse le stick droit de la caméra. J'utilise deux manettes xbox 360 sans fil et xpadder qui permet facilement d'inverser le stick, mais je n'arrive pas à faire en sorte que le profil change automatiquement au lancement de certains jeux seulement. Si quelqu'un a une idée...
      Bonne journée !

      Pessoal, a muito tempo meu controle 2 não estava funcionando, recentemente arrumei ele e veio o problema: Quando eu inicio um game de NeoGeo/MAME ele funciona perfeitamente, aparece a mensagem do xpadder quando eu saio do game mas não trava. Porém quando se trata do emulador de super nintendo ele trava. Alguem sabe me dizer como desabilitar o xpadder?

      Je tente de reproduire la combinaison de touche sur xpadder pour le save/load state de MAME mais je ne trouve pas le moyen de stabiliser l'utilisation. (manette Xbox 360 sans fil)
      En effet sur un clavier cela fonctionne parfaitement sans aucun bug :
      - Shift + F7 >> affichage du texte de sauvegarder > une touche à choisir
      - F7 >> affichage du texte de chargement > appui sur la touche de la sauvegarde
      On peu le faire autant de fois celui ci affiche bien à chaque fois le message de choix de touche.
      Lorsque je configure Xpadder en plaçant une combinaison sur une touche pour le "Shift+F7" et une touche simple pour le "F7" celui pète un boulon et fonctionne une fois sur 2 (je dois répéter l'action 2 fois de suite au moins).
      Je pose la question au cas ou quelqu'un l'aurait déjà configuré, de mon coté je continu à faire des tests mais rien de concluant pour le moment.
      Merci d'avance
