Buttons for fba2x.cfg (Pifba)

Post by Kharmeleon » Fri Jan 19, 2018 3:41 pm

Hi there, i've built a MintyPi v2 this week and i wanted to know how i have to edit the opt/retropie/emulators/pifba/fba2x.cfg to play Neo Geo games with Pifba emulator properly. What i found out so far about how the GPIO-buttons are linked to letters on a keyboard:

L = A
R = S
Up = [[A
Down = [[B
Left = [[D
Right = [[C
Y = X
X = Z

Has anyone to offer the layout or a hint for the missing buttons and which digits i have to insert for the Mintypi button layout. I was wondering if anybody could share his fba2x.cfg file with me.

I'm not able to play Neo Geo games right now, because i have the wrong button input in the cfg file. :(


Here is what the fba2x.cfg says:

[Keyboard]
# Get codes from /usr/include/SDL/SDL_keysym.h
A_1=306
B_1=32
X_1=308
Y_1=304

START_1=13

#player 2 keyboard controls, disabled by default
A_2=999

R_2=999
START_2=999
SELECT_2=999

SELECT_4=6
#Joystick axis

JA_UD_4=1

[Graphics]

# Display Effect: 0 none, 1 scanlines

Here you go all set for the mintyPi which works rather well with this emulator.

Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). Don't contact me about any of my boards if they are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them.

Great Helder! Many thanks for that file. Btw i like your PCB set very much. It works like a charm :D

You say that the Pifba emu works rather well. That's funny because i've read in the wiki that it would work much better with pi zero than others would do. That's why i chose it. So which one would you suggest i should use and where do i have to put the rom files to work with that emulator?

I have encountered another problem. With the bios set i have the sprites are not shown correctly or there ar missing certain colors for example. It looks awful. I've tried many bioses before but all the others did not even work. :(

Again thank you very much for your help.

I use the CPS1 and CPS2 roms mainly the Capcom arcade roms and they go in the FBA folder. Neo Geo also works with this emulator but you neo geo bios zip file to have them load games.

Audio needs to be working or the emulator crashes on bootup.
