Quick question, how to select 2nd player using keyboard?
My controls are only set up for 1 player but I'd like to select a 2nd player using a USB wireless keyboard. This is so that I can practice my combos.
I've bought two different mini wireless keyboards to use with recalbox. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003UE52ME/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005C71L5Y/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I took pains to purchase the most popular and highly rated mini wireless keyboards. In order to facilitate their compactness, the keyboards rely on a Fn key to access underused keys. Unfortunately, these are the same keys that recalbox uses for some of its most important features and for whatever reason use of the Fn key poses some sort of conflict. I know that it shouldn't, but it does. I think it would be great if recalbox were modified to use more accessible keys/key combinations (ie ctrl+x instead of home, ctrl+f instead of f2) so that everyone can enjoy its features. Thanks in advance!
RE: What's your favorite game to play on Recalbox?
- Marvel Super Heroes I've only been playing MSH and SFIII so far (I own discs and A and B boards). Big question though, is anyone else unable to taunt? I'm using the start button but it doesn't work. In SFIII the chars get buffs (especially Q, he's useless w/out it) so it's important. What's weird is that in MSH at the end of the round using the start button works to let you kick downed opponents, but doesn't do anything prior.
Hi, thank you but the keyboard does have Alt+Fx functionality, it just doesn't seem to work in recalbox. Possibly bcs of the Fn function. In any event, I think it would be great if the CLI were accessible thru the Shutdown menu.
The gpio drivers are already installed and loadable on recalbox : https://github.com/digitalLumberjack/recalbox-os/wiki/Manual-%28EN%29#6—gpio-controllers
Ah, I see, great! I think it would be good to update https://github.com/digitalLumberjack/mk_arcade_joystick_rpi w/ that info for anyone else that's interested. I did a GPIO JS search which led me to that page which led me to recalbox, maybe others will take that route as well.
I can get to CLI by using a different keyboard but it's a shame bcs it's a very common keyboard that won't work which means lots of people will have similar problems. I got the GPIO JS driver to install by omitting the sudo commands, but not w/out errors. For one, ./install.sh relies on sudo commands. Current issues; Can't get the GPIO JS drivers to Auto load. Can't build a library in Kodi, can only play individual album folders rather than the music dir
I’ve tried Alt+f2 but it isn’t working.
Perhaps bcs I have a mini wifi keyboard and f2 can only be had using an additional Fn key?
Using Putty anytime I run sudo I get the following: -sh: sudo: not found
Ironically I've been able to get the GPIO JS kernel working in emulationstation quickly and easily.
How do I get a CLI? I've tried Alt+f2 but it isn't working. Perhaps bcs I have a mini wifi keyboard and f2 can only be had using an additional Fn key? Is the CLI accessible from somewhere in the frontend and I'm just missing it? I only see restart and shutdown. I'm so close to realizing my dream! I only need to get to the CLI so I can try out the GPIO JS kernel. Here's my cab build thus far if anyone's interested: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,112805.msg1197482.html?PHPSESSID=lknts2qamakjl4h6lcknfqf6p7#msg1197482
