    Howto change custom keys for the joystick in the *nix version of vice

    VICE (x64) - Cange the "Custom Keys" of the joystick emulation[edit]

    the x11 version of vice doesn't give the opportunity to change the keys for the joystick emulation comfortable in its drop-down-menus.

    so you have to use the numerals block, the user-defined keys ("custom keys") or to plug in two analog joysticks.

    the expression "user-defined" is misleading in this context, because this keys can not be selected anywhere. and so they will be everytime on the numerals block and w,e,r,s,d,f,x,c,v and <space> as fire-button.

    but the keyoard-layout inclusive the joystick-keys correspond to a file named x11_sym.vkm, wich can be found in /usr/lib/vice/C64 (most linux variants) or in /usr/local/lib/vice/C64 (e.g. FreeBSD).

    example of a joystick mapping:

    #
    
    #    W
    
    #    |
    
    #  A-+-S
    
    #    |
    
    #    D
    
    #
    
    # fire : Strg right
    
    #
    
    w -2 8
    
    a -2 4
    
    s -2 2
    
    d -2 6
    
    Control_R -2 0
    

    i personally like the arrow-keys for joystick 2, so my configuration looks like this: vice_X11_sym.vkm
