I’ve got a custom arcade cab that I modified to run SFIV in addition to its usual roster. I’m using a custom 4 player control board that I built using a mameroom.com shell that’s run by an ultimarc ipac 48-switch controller. The ipac converts arcade switch presses into keyboard signals sent to the PC inside the cabinet which works great for most of my apps but not so well for SFIV because it only allows you to map one player to keyboard control by default. After searching around on here and other forums I discovered an app called PPJoy that creates a virtual joystick that can be mapped to keyboard input. This works alright for player 2, but this particular app has some issues (xp32 only, doesn’t run as a service, etc). It is the only app of this kind I’ve been able to locate.
Has anyone else with a DIY arcade stick run into this issue and if so, have you found a more elegant solution than the one I have currently in place?
