Remapping Keys - Arcade Cabinet
Saw this game on sale, and thought it would be a great addition for my arcade-cabinet. Mame + a few steam games. When using the "Arcade" border, it looks great, but can't really be played.

The lack of ability to re-map the keys makes the game practically unplayable. I'm using the standard I-Pac controller which takes the button presses and converts them to keystrokes.

There are a few programs VJoy that let me setup a virtual joystick, but having to setup that functionality unique to each game becomes quite the hassle.

Is there any plans to add this functionality or even any 3-rd party mods/ config files that can be edited? It really is a fun, silly game.

Does the cabinet not support mapping to controllers? You can customize controller input.

Depends on the type of controller board used to hook-up the system. I-pac converts to keyboard, while an A-pac converts the input to a controller. Pro/cons to both. I-pac makes things a lot easier for most games. Since most games allow you to remap keys, you very rarely run into issues outside of a few multiplayer games like castle crashers/jamestown.

Such a standard feature of nearly any game, not really sure how hard it would have been to include the keymapping anyway, even if it loaded from a config file. Disappointing loss of $4, just glad I didn't get suckered when it was full price.

Isn't this a standard feature in every game ever? I've just ran into this problem trying to play with an X-Arcade Tankstick only to find I can't remap controls. Geez, devs please...
Joy2key supports fwding joystick commands to the keyboard.

That's not viable as I'd have to start and stop Joy2Key every time this game is started. For a system that won't have a mouse and is designed to "just work" it's out of the question.

I found this thread searching for a solution to the exact same issue. Its a tragedy they would make a homage to retro gaming and have such an obvious oversight. This game would be perfect in my arcade. Have you tried vJoy?

Any third party programs are a no-go as games are being launched from a launcher. Not supporting mappable keys is just rediculous.
