Controllers and Keyboards
#1
A few questions on controllers & keyboards; I'm not sure if my questions are ahead or behind the current state of the coding; perhaps both. I've searched for hours trying to figure these out on my own.
  1. Is keyboard input supported yet for gameplay on MAME 2010 (or even using other emulators) within RC5.2?
  2. Can multiple controllers be used at the same time during gameplay? Kodi accepts input from all three of my controllers while not in gameplay (i.e. regular Kodi GUI), but once I start a game, only 1 controller is recognized and can provide input.
  3. One problem I have is with X-Arcade buttons mapped to the Left & Right "Triggers" (but no problem w/ Triggers on Gamesir controller). Pressing one of these buttons causes Kodi to continuously scroll through whatever list it is showing at the moment. I am wondering if there is some sort of 'dead zone' setting that can be applied to these mapped buttons for the +/- Z triggers? Or another solution?
  4. If a joystick is recognized as an X-Input device, will it only ever be recognized as a "Xbox 360-compatible controller"? In other words, if I want to distinguish my X-arcade button mapping & controls from my Gamesir button mapping & controls, I cannot do that as long as they are both seen as X-Input "Xbox 360-compatible controllers"? To make them different, would I have to put the X-arcade into DirectInput mode (which is seen as "X-Arcade 2") to be different from the Gamesir controller?
  5. If needed, while I have minimal knowledge on the subject, is there something I can help with to further 'map' or set up a controller addon for my X-Arcade device?
  6. Lastly, not really a controller question, but any games' ZIP files that contain *.bin or *.rom files won't play. Instead, the GUI opens up the zip file and lists the file contents rather than play the game. What am I doing wrong? 
My setup:
  1. Win 10 with Kodi 18 RC5.2.
  2. I can run most MAME 2010 games without problems.
  3. I have mapped my controller buttons without problems. Kodi and Windows recognize their input without problems.
  4. I have an X-Arcade Dual Joystick (no trackball). It is set up to be 'seen' as two separate joysticks. I just installed X-Arcade's "Tri-Mode USB" upgrade kit. In short this allows the joystick to be recognized as either of these choices below depending on mode selected:
    1. Keyboard
      1. Windows sees it as an "X-Arcade 2" Keyboard device
      2. Kodi sees it as a regular keyboard
    2. DirectInput Joystick
      1. Windows "Game Controllers" dialog shows "X-Arcade 2"
      2. Kodi's "Kodi.log" registers it as a joystick device named "X-Arcade 2"
    3. X-Input Joystick
      1. Windows "Game Controllers" dialog shows "Controller (X-Arcade 2)"
      2. Kodi's "Kodi.log" show it as a joystick device named "Xbox 360-compatible controller"
  5. I also have a Gamesir G4 wireless controller
    1. Windows "Game Controllers" dialog shows as "Controller"
    2. Kodi's "Kodi.log" show it as a X-Input device named "Xbox 360-compatible controller"
  6. Kodi log shows these 3 joysticks (2 for the Dual X-arcade and 1 for the Gamesir) in DirectInput mode
    1. new joystick device registered on addon->peripheral.joystick/0: X-Arcade 2
      new joystick device registered on addon->peripheral.joystick/1: X-Arcade 2
      new joystick device registered on addon->peripheral.joystick/2: Xbox 360-compatible controller
  7. Kodi log shows these 3 joysticks (2 for the Dual X-arcade and 1 for the Gamesir) in X-Input mode
    1. new joystick device registered on addon->peripheral.joystick/0: Xbox 360-compatible controller
      new joystick device registered on addon->peripheral.joystick/1: Xbox 360-compatible controller
      new joystick device registered on addon->peripheral.joystick/2: Xbox 360-compatible controller
