Recently, I was attempting to use the Atari800 emulator on my HTPC but ran into some limitations with controller configuration. In short, I really need the ability to customize the buttons on my controller on a game-by-game basis so that I don’t need a keyboard hooked up full time. I’m using Maximus Arcade as my front end, which permits a different command line per game, so if I could save custom button configurations to the config file, I’d be all set. I also thought of a few other controller enhancements that would be nice.
To address these needs, I’ve released a set of patches to the Win32 version of the emulator. These are made on top of the source that was distributed with version 2.1 of the emulator and should require no additional libraries. Full details on this patch are included in the readme.txt file.
