Retrodode functions as Joy2Key on Win8
« on: 11/Oct/2014 04:19:16 PM »
Right now it's only a semantic problem, but I noticed on emulators like bsnes and SNES9x, on Win7 it would detect the buttons on my SNES controller as controller buttons (ie. Select is "(J0) Button 7" or something).
But on my Windows 8 PC, it effectively functions as a Joy2Key (ie. pushing Select maps as Spacebar).
The buttons seem to still function correctly but I just wonder if I could at some point hit a problem using a real keyboard has, like you can't press many keys at once, or unwanted activation of Windows Disability functions (like Sticky Keys).
The other difference is that I notice is this PC has the "SS USB" ports. Don't know if that matters.

USB3 ports have been reported to cause trouble sometimes. No idea why it would convert controller to keyboard though... weird
