A couple menu/OSD questions ?

Postby cacophony » Fri Oct 12, 2018 5:02 pm

1. Is there a way to map the "space" key to the gamepad for the menu/OSD? When configuring a controller in the menu/OSD "space" is used to skip buttons, but currently this is only possible with the keyboard hooked up. I see that there's a "Button/Key remap for game" in the OSD, and it seems to work for doing this type of mapping for actual gameplay, but I haven't gotten it to work within the OSD itself.

2. If you're far down in a long list of roms, is there a faster way to move up the parent directory without paging up to the ".." at the top ?

Thanks!

1) you cannot use joystick to skip the mapping. This simply not compatible with original idea. Button mapping is one-time operation per core. So i don't see a problem to connect the keyboard for short time. Or use wireless keyboard.
2) nope.

To limit the size of your roms list, I find it helpful to separate by folders 0-9,A,B,C,D...

I have use script on most of my game rom folders.

You can SSH in and change to the folder you want to organize - alternately you can use the serial port console mode (with a terminal program) in Amiga core.

#cd /media/fat/GENESIS/GAMES
#/media/fat/orgROM.sh

Hope that helps...
