for full screen edit the renderer.cfg in the "zinc" folder.


for controller.
run ZiNcGUI.exe
click setup controller.
edit the buttons for your pad.
save the config name "manguan.cfg".

add this to top of script
ADD_CLP( --use-controller-cfg-file=manguan.cfg)

It must need to be in the correct place to work.

Try adding controller line here (before renderer).
ElseIf Key_name CONTAINS (71||Heaven's Gate||hvnsgate)
Add_CLP(71 --use-controller-cfg-file=manguan.cfg --use-renderer-cfg-file=renderer.cfg --renderer=d3d_renderer.znc)

or here (before run emulator)

ADD_CLP( --use-controller-cfg-file=manguan.cfg)

End IF
Run_Emulator()

First case: game doesn't start.
Second case: game starts but joystick doesn't work.

What I can't see is manguan.cfg file...

ok, i have done some looking into this problem.
seems there are 4 types of game /controller key configs that need setting up.
; ZN1 : 6 btns
; S11 : 11 btns + 2 special btn
; KN1 : 2 btns
; RZ : 3 btns

also there is slightly updated "controller.znc".

This sample script attached is working with my setup.
copy all .cfg files to c:\gamebase\zinc (same folder as zinc.exe)

*if you configure 2 joypads and only have 1 attached to the PC.
it fails to load rom with error.

Thanks .mad., but I have no luck...

I create ZN1.cfg layout with ZiNcGUI.exe, launch any game and joystick works. But it doesn't when I launch the game from Zinc GB.

Do I have to do any additional configuration?

EDIT:
Joystick do works launching games in GB. I didn't realize because buttons change. For example, coin button is 4-Axis push button and not Back one...

Playing vertical-screen games in fullscreen, the screen becomes horizontal.
Any fix for that?
