just a quick reply , this is mine, can't remember what is the line for the 8bitdo
(one of them is a M$ joypad)

Code: Select all

joystick_remap=0583,2060,1,2,4,8,10,20,20,8,400,800,40,80
joystick_remap=1235,ab21,1,2,4,8,10,20,0,0,0,0,400,800,0,0,40,80
joy_key_map=1000,E2
joy_key_map=2000,E6
joy_key_map=4,51
joy_key_map=8,52

How does MiST correlate the mapping in the ini to the core? Is each core hard coded with an identifier, or does it go by the filename of the rbf file?

Yes. The name/identifier is displayed in the OSD of the respective core (the vertical oriented text on the left).

I have been tinkering with this tool, but I think something is wrong with it. I use Windows 10 and what joypad I try, the buttons do not register. The directions do work and show the yellow highlight. I have tried it with a Xbox 360 gamepad, a 8bitdo SN30 pro and a few nameless USB pads. Anyone a suggestion?

Btw: the buttons work in the joy.cpl windows programm
