  • Mapping Keyboard to 2 controllers

    I just purchased REWASD thinking I could map my keyboard to 2 separate controllers, so player 1 and 2 can use the same keyboard. It's actually an IPAC arcade controller that emulates a keyboard.

    I can't figure out if this is possible, however, since it only activates one config at a time per device...

    Any help?

    Hello,
    Thank you for your question.

    To use 2 controllers as the single one you may group them first https://help.rewasd.com/how-to-remap...f-devices.html. After that, you need to add second gamepad sub config - > do mappings - > apply the created configs - > play a game. I put some steps this link, please, check it.

      Thanks for the reply, but I think you misunderstood what Im trying to accomplish. Or rather, I explained it poorly.

      I have one physical keyboard that I would like to map to 2 seperate virtual 360 controllers. This way, both player 1 and player 2 use the same keyboard.

      A lot of arcade controllers are actually keyboard emulators. In my scenerio, I have an IPAC which is basically a keyboard board connected to 2 sets of joysticks and arcade buttons.

      ReWASD lets me map the IPAC to a single virtual 360 controller, and Im wondering if its its possible to map to multiple virtual 360 controllers at the same time. This is actually a fairly common situation MAME enthusiasts run into.

        Hello,

        I see now. Unfortunately, no, there is no option to create multiple virtual controllers from a single physical device. 1 physical device = 1 virtual controller. But we know about this feature and will try to add it to one of the next releases.
        Don't worry! Be Happy!

          So it's been a couple years and many of us are lookign for this feature still? How do we split one keyboard into 2 virtual controllers for arcade setups. Please guys this is a needed feature. So many arcade enthusiasts would use your software if you added this. I too bought it thinking I could and no apparently still not possible?

            Hello!

            Unfortunately, it is not possible yet. We will make a higher priority for this feature, but I can't tell you the exact ETA at the moment.

              Good to know I wasted my time and money on your product this is literally the only reason I wanted to use it

                Hello,

                Just checking in. Any chance we may see this feature in the near future? Allowing two virtual controllers to be associated with a single ipac would be a great addition.
