Tech: Fightstick mapping


If you have a hardware issues to where your fight stick is not working within SFV, but normally works for other games for the PC, try this. I don’t own these program nor do I need it, however; JoyToKey(a free software) or x360ce is great for solving this issue. With thess programs, you are basically turning your fightstick into a keyboard.

If the game and computer cannot read your fightstick, please consult the Fightstick manufacturer. It maybe a hardware/driver failure.

Just simply map your fightstick buttons to the keyboard controls shown below.

SFV Keyboard controls:
Light Punch: G
Med Punch: H
High Punch: J
All Punch: K

Light Kick:B
Med Kick: N
High Kick: M
All Kick: , (comma)

Dpad: arrow keys
If this does not work use W(up), A(left), S(down), D(right)

Start: "Enter"
Select: “right shift”

For mapping, you don’t need to capitalize the letters.

Let me know if this helps. It sure worked for me when I was having trouble with my eight arc stick.



Edited again

JoyToKey lags, it’s much better to use x360ce.

Place it in “Steam\steamapps\common\StreetFighterV\StreetFighterV\Binaries\Win64”, run it once, auto detect your stick (all common fight sticks are supported), then close.

Now it will start and close automatically with Street Fighter V and you never need to think about it again. Far simpler and less than 1 frame lag.

Interesting. I’ll update the posting tonight.
