I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to display gamepad / stick inputs on screen? I play a lot on PC… I know, I know… the sacrilege! Still I was wondering if anyone knew how to do this?
I saw this video on youtube by KingBlackToof…
This is exactly what I was thinking of, but I have no idea how he did it… there is no way he manually edited the video to show that. I sent me a PM on youtube but I guess he is busy or doesn’t read them mails. So I thought I would make a account and post here. (Long time reader, 1st time poster)
The app is in Japanese so it might be hard to get running… I emailed the guy and he sent me a English translation of the right click menu.
There are a few problems… 1) You need to make your own skin. There are skins floating about but I couldn’t find any that looked any good. The skin is very easy to make though.
This is my MKx Layout skin
Buttons look like this… This is a mock up, only the ones you press will show, diagonals will show up and left for example.
I haven’t finished the skin. The Green background is so OBS can remove it to make it clear on the screen.
The problem is that while the PC version of MKX gets a lot of hate I have had nothing but smooth running with it. Still when I run OBS I drop from 60fps to 30 and it makes it nearly unplayable So I guess the entire exercise was a bit of a waste of time.
The problem I was having is that in windows mode while recording the game dropped to 30fps, even though it runs perfectly in fullscreen while recording and fine in windows mode when not recording / streaming.
Then as I was uploading I wrote in the description “it locks to 30fps” and though… hmm… maybe it is a vsync issue and not the processing for recording. So I disabled vsync and boom… it started to play while recording / streaming at full fps. Also as you may know, screen tearing does not occur in windows mode, only fullscreen (on all games)… the tearing was why it was enabled.
If you have 2 monitors I would just set the button layout thing to the other monitor… but it works fine as I demo’s it.
My only problem now is that the controls display while accurate is “to accurate”. I’ve emailed the guy and asked if there is a way to dely in milliseconds of the ON buttons. Even though this is what happens they flash so fast sometimes… be cool if they hung out a little but longer.
Thanks for everyones help…
BTW, the xinputview didn’t work on my madkatz ps3 TE.
I would definitely prefer to use something simpler, but padlight doesn’t recognize my directional inputs.
One solution I can think of is to use XPadder to map the buttons, but I will be in the same situation as before (‘messy’ setup).
Does anyone know how to make my directional work?
Xpadder Doesn’t seam to recognize my stick for some reason
Try setting this menu item to PoV(B). This fixes it for me… also remember if the skin is not set up right, then it will not flash. So test that option when you have the default skin enabled. “sampleskin”
