How do I use the X-Arcade™ Tankstick with GameTap™?
GameTap ditched their awesome client software in favor of web browser-based gameplay to the distaste of many (including us). These web versions don't currently have support for in-game
configuration of keyboard keys. So to use the X-Arcade with these browser games, you will need to click the Game Controls button at the top of the game window to see the default keyboard keys for the game, and then program your X-Arcade
to those keys. We know this is not ideal, so please let GameTap know
what an inconvenience it is by filing a case/forum post.
The older versions of GameTap™ had X-Arcade™ support built in, but have now moved to a browser-based system. This information is for those who may somehow be using an older client version:
Click the ""controls" menu.
Click the "Edit Controllers" button.
Click the "Assign to Players" tab.
most games under keyboard and next to player 1 choose "X-Arcade™ Left.
For dual-joystick games such as Robotron™ and Karate Champ™ choose
"X-Arcade™ Dual" instead.
Next to player 2 choose "X-Arcade™ Right.
you wish to change the controls manually, under the "Map Controls" tab
choose the controller side that you want to change from the drop-down
menu ("X-Arcade™ Left" for example) and double-click the button you
wish to reassign. Then press the button/direction you wish it to use.
TRACKBALL SETUP: For
Trackball based games follow steps 1-3 above but you must choose
"Keyboard" for player 1 and player 2 to enable Trackball movement. We
didn't make the rules, we just play along.
