[SOLVED] Joy to key windows 10 issue (Isolated issue)

Post by Champrt78 on Sun Nov 12, 2017 8:53 pm

Ijoy to key won't open for me in windows 10. It used to work on my windows 7 box, but I got a new computer with 10 on it and joy to key won't open. I tried a bunch of compatibility configs, but it won't open, just goess minimized in task bar. Anyone else experience this?

It absolutely works in win10; But, are you switching your gaming drive between multiple computers? If so, that causes all types of issues, because you have to reinstall the gaming software ( that 30 minute process when you first get the drive) Each time and it will cause issues.

You probably have a partial missing set up of your joy2key.

Do an update sync, and see if that fixes it. If not, you may have to run the initial install program. If that still doesn’t fix it, go to this directory and completely delete what you have for joy to key and then re-sync:

D:\Arcade\Tools And delete any joy to key folder you see.

Will I need to do the initial install again after the re-sync?

It is supposed to minimize to taskbar.  It is open and working correctly.  It is opening offscreen though so if you only have one screen you will need to figure out how to get it back on the main screen.

Mine does the same thing and I have to get it back to the main screen every time. I use the windows key + shift + left arrow key to get mine back on there but I know that does not always work. Sorry I cannot help past that.

Interesting, i will try that , I guess I can hook a different monitor to it and try. When it was on my windos 7 box it didn't dothat. I tried to go to task manager and then I would try bring to foreground , that didn't help. I also tried to maximize from clicking maximize from the task manager, but that didn't work. I will try the off screen thing. Thanks.

Yeah it only started happening recently so I think with the recent sync, Chris must have had the thing off screen before he sync'd to root. It is still reading the screen location on Chris' pc I think.

Just out of curiosity, why do you need to see joy2key?

If you have 2 screens it should show up by right clicking in the system tray NOT taskbar and selecting Main Window, which has the shortcut key 'O' but I do not think that works as intended. I think you actually have to click the option to make it come up. You can stop this from happening by turning off 'Start Joy2Key in a minimized mode' in the Preferences Menu.

Im not sure that I do need to use it, yet, but im just trying to get everything set up to work correctly for when I put it all in a cab. I can't get to the preferences menu tho. I can use joytokey on my other win10 laptop , but not on this desktop, its really annoying.

What exactly is joytokey used for? I mena I want it to work, but do I need it really?

It is used to translate joystick commands from things like a xbox 360 controller to keyboard commands. If you are using an ipac, you will not really use it except for things like hold player 1 coin to exit. You should not need to change anything though as the emulators and Hyperspin are setup to use exactly the commands that are there. Changing anything in joy2key will mess up a good bit of stuff. You can change things if you want to but I would not recommend it.

I'm going to be using bit in a cab, ipac. Maybe later down the road I would hook up a controller. Still I would like to have it working properly. I tried to break it on my laptop, closing it off screen etc, but still can't. Is anyone else having this issue?

It seems as though this is an issue on your system only. I ran the most recent update and it is not happening on my windows 10 pc.

I was able to reproduce it on my laptop. I opened jtk and set , it to start in minimized mode, it broke it. It starts minimized, but won't open. So the trick is, how to undo this. Sahadd, may I see your jtk.ini file?

Do you have a fix for that? Can we just change it to 0 to have it start non-minimized?

I think that will work. On my laptop I just deleted the "inconified" line from the .ini file and that worked. I will test it on my gaming rig after work.
