Anvice Commodore emulator

Hi everyone,

I seem to be struggling setting up the controls for this emulator on my JXD 7800B.  Has anyone else experienced difficulties or over come them?

Regards,

Chris

It's the one I use. It's a bit complex to set up but worth it.
It should have joystick and fire button already mapped. To map other controls I recommend tou download game keyboard and map keys to buttons. You can save profiles for individual games.

Also make sure you have the keypress fix enabled in anvice or your controls won't register correctly.

You should also set the sound to low buffer with a size of 75 or it will be out of sync.

for video options use smooth or better video but not both at the same time or you will get some slow down.

If your still unsure let me know exactly what your trying to do and i'll try and help

 Your advice worked a treat.  Now got joystick controls on the analogue stick.  Shame I can't get it working on the d-pad.  Cheers.

I don't have that problem? Have you set joystick keys to dpad in the settings?

My settings
Input Mode - Joystick, Key Press fix on
Buttons - Hide Buttons
Settings - Frameskip=0,Smooth Resize, Resize Mode=Full screen, Joystick Keys= dpad
Keyboard set to game keyboard. In the game keyboard settings I have a default profile where l1,l2,lr1 and r2 are set to f1,f3,f5,f7 a c and d are set to space return and joystick up. I then have extra profiles for games that use different keys (eg I have  one for skool daze). Remember to have an extra default profile where hard key mapping is off for wheb not using anvice.

Finally when showing buttons on anvice with joystick selected for the input pressing 2 will take you to the vice menu.
Here I use
Video Settings - Video Cache off
Sound Settings - Buffer size = Between 50 and 75 (see which works best for you), Fragment size = small,Frequency =44100, Syncronization = Flexible.

That gives me near perfect emulation. Sound still has latency in some games, noticably rollaround

Please help, I've tried all the advice on here and turned off JXD's on-screen keymapping and still my controls still aren't working at all! I'm completely baffled as the d-pad and button work fine in the settings menu. :(

Any advice would be massively appreciated!

PS: Hi everyone, glad to have found this forum. Recently got a JXD and I absolutely love it!

Have you tried different games and swapping joystick ports?

Yeah I tried several games and swapping the controller port. It's very strange.

I remember having that problem once. I t turned out I just needed to change 1 setting but I can't remember which. Might be worth trying the gamekeyboard apk and setting your controls with that. I actually use it to swap up between normal up ans fire button when games require fire to jump

In settings go to joystick keys option and make sure it's set to dpad

It's ok, I managed to get it working at last! Turns out I had to turn the touch screen buttons on, press touch screen button 2 which takes you to the old PC settings menu and had to attach a joystick from there as well. Thanks for your help anyway, if you hadn't said there was one thing you had to change I wouldn't have gone searching so deep!
