Daphne & X-Arcade TankStick finally working!



  • Hope this post helps anyone that is struggling with getting Daphne games working with a X-Arcade Tankstick.

    First off my Tankstick in in mode #4, that is the recommended setting from X-Arcade which is set up to emulate (or at least Recalbox sees it as a Xbox 360 wireless controller.

    Connected the tankstick to the USB port of my laptop and windows 10 saw it as a xbox 360 controller. using the controller utility I was able to identify the following buttons.

    Now we can use these buttons to create our dapinput.ini

    1st, edit your Recalbox.conf file and add the following:

    daphne.configfile=/recalbox/share/system/configs/Daphne/dapinput.ini

    this will stop Daphne from overwriting the dapinput.ini file on start up.

    I added after the two Daphne lines in the conf file.

    Now you create your dapinput.ini file.

    cd to configs/Daphne
    create a file called dapinput.ini and put the following in it:

    [KEYBOARD]
    KEY_SCREENSHOT = 3 0 0
    KEY_START2 = 50 0 0
    KEY_START1 = 49 0 10
    KEY_CONSOLE = 92 0 4
    KEY_PAUSE = 112 0 2
    KEY_COIN1 = 53 54 9
    KEY_COIN2 = 54 53 0
    KEY_UP = 0 0 16
    KEY_QUIT = 27 0 5
    KEY_RIGHT = 0 0 15
    KEY_TEST = 0 0 0
    KEY_BUTTON3 = 32 0 3
    KEY_BUTTON2 = 0 0 2
    KEY_BUTTON1 = 0 0 1
    KEY_SKILL3 = 120 0 0
    KEY_SKILL2 = 122 0 0
    KEY_SKILL1 = 0 0 0
    KEY_SERVICE = 57 0 0
    KEY_RESET = 0 0 6
    KEY_DOWN = 0 0 17
    KEY_TILT = 116 0 0
    KEY_LEFT = 0 0 14

    in case you want to customize this file please read this, it will explain how to bind keys and gamepad buttons.
