Unfortunately, with the way the actual virtual boy controller is set up it’s hard to get a configuration that works well with games that use both D pads. Though it probably shouldn’t be too hard to find one that works well with Vertical Force.
I use the arrows as the left pad, Enter/R-Shift as Start/Select, W/A/S/D as the right pad, Q/E as L/R and L-Shift/L-Ctrl as A/B.
…But then again, I don’t do much emu playing. 😐
…And JoyToKey was the one i was thinking of, I couldn’t remember the name of it though. :vbsmile:
…But will it work with the emus? A while ago I remember trying to write something to emulate keystrokes, but Allegro (the engine used to run the emus) wouldn’t accept them.
But the level that the emulation is at leaves a lot to be desired, especially if you don’t have any shutter glasses to more accurately reproduce the the real VB experience. It would probably be a lot easier to simply buy a VB since they’re so cheap anyway.
I would agree, nothing will replace the real experience of using a VB. But if you are stuck with an emulator, for development or to play some rare game, your best bet (for the least amount of mony) is a pair of red/blue glasses and a VB controller wired to the paralel port.
Shutter glasses are a trick, since they don’t work on an LCD display (and I dont have a pair to test with). I will add in a fix to the next versoin of Reality Boy to stretch the images horizontaly. That should fix the shutter glasses (finaly)
