In game controls whilst using CoinOPS can differ depending on a few variables

- Default CoinOPS button layout for that Console/Arcade machine

- The Game itself

- The Controls Defined by the Gamepack uploader if they are not as default.


However, there are a few controls which are Mostly Universal Besides the standard Game character controls.

So Unless they have been redefined by the Game Pack Maker, here are the default assignments:

RIGHT THUMBSTICK BUTTON - Enable Autofire ( Pressing fire can charge your weapons )

BACK - Quickly Disable Autofire

REMAP THE DEFAULT CONTROLS

ENABLE advanced settings on the setting Sub-menu, then ENABLE Remap Default Gamepad

when playing a game press BACK + WHITE (LEFT THUMBSTICK BUTTON for Consoles/Final Burn)

and select Remap Gamepad


Note - If you have a cusom key map, it will override the default keymap. Custom keymaps

are located in CoinOPS\cfg\ folder and if you wish to change the keys delete the Existing custom maps.


MULTIPLE BUTTON CONFIGS

As an example, A Capcom game uses the combination LPunch+MPunch+HPunch for a special move

If for example LPunch=(L)TRIGGER, MPunch='X', HPunch='Y' and you want a shortcut for this special move to be on WHITE BUTTON

then Remap this way:

P1 Button 1 = J1_LTrigger or J1_White

P1 Button 2 = J1_X or J1_White

P1 Button 3 = J1_Y or J1_White


Pressing White will call the 3 Punch Buttons !


FAST FORWARD

To skip memory tests, rom/ram tests, etc... just change the frameskip ingame.

Default Frameskip is AUTO. but you can remap this to suit you. e.g.

Using REMAP GAMEPAD as decribed above,


set 'Frameskip Dec'(Decrease) as (L)TRIGGER + (R)TRIGGER + 'X'

this will cycle down from 11 - 0 then back to 'AUTO'


Set Frameskip Inc(Increase) as (L)TRIGGER + (R)TRIGGER + 'Y'

this will cycle back up from 0 - 'AUTO'


(Only press the keys once, or you can get lost as the Frameskip value isn't shown anymore ingame).



GUN GAMES

Playing a lightgun game like Lethal Enforcers 2 with the pad can be hard because we must reload by shooting outside

the screen. For this kind of game, enter the cheat menu and available the unlimited ammo setting.


Same for Underfire. The crosshair isn't shown ingame but it's playable with unlimited ammo

as we can see where we've just shot.


Disable the Crosshair (BACK+LEFT+THUMB) will help in Beast Busters.
