We discussed it, and humour is allowed. Nothing harmful, hurtful or provoking has been said. And C0's and my comments about USB-joystick solution was supposed to be fun, but it also works. It will give you autofire in Vice, just like on the real thing.

Quote: In the time it took to you write posts and complain to "moderators" you could have walked to the shops and bought a controller with autofire :o ;) I've never had any need for autofire. I find it useful for some shoot'em up arcade titles but that's about it. I've always seen it as cheating, so, I doubt I'll get much support for that belief :)

Ive opened this topic to get help in why the autofire in vice is greyed out / missing / not working. I thought its somehow configurable only I'm missing something.

Telling me to buy this or that (for the 4th time in a row) with subtle hints I'm such an idiot for not doing that, or asserting I'm acting here like an idiot customer and demanding autofire (hi zesmasher) doesnt help.

Somehow I dont feel making fun of politely asking for help is funny, or having to swimm through all this shit to finally learn that autofire was never done. Better not ask here next time.

Actually, I just got a Logitech f710 to further test the joystick code. But that one seems to need 2 AA batteries and no way to recharge via USB.
So I'll be setting up a Patreon to keep me provided with batteries. A stretch goal will be Auto-Fire, but first I need lots of money for "batteries".

hi Oswald! misunderstanding from your side: actually I was defending you and trolling those who said "plug an usb joy.."
man, you really contacted the mods to remove the trollposts when the mods are the trollposters in this topic? :P

Dudes,

my post on the USB joystick adapter was meant serious and works out of the delivery box. Also I was NOT talking of USB Competition Pro clones which have a terrible delay and are no good for quick players. So IMHO a well thought advise if you want an original joystick and cannot draw back to some modern USB PC controller.

Now we get complains that a solution __IN__ Vice was desired but a crappy AutoHotkey Windows ONLY solution is a well accepted reply?

I dont want an answer to that rhetorical question but maybe ask yourself whether Lemon or Reddit are made for $YOU.

No trolling. Just like C0, my first solution to the problem was to plug in a joystick that has autofire in the first place.

First off: as I mentioned before, I am working on improving the joystick code, allowing for more input events: axes for mouse/paddles, extra buttons to map to keyboard. This might include auto-fire *inside* VICE, though I personally consider that cheating.

Second: I realized the "green" batteries probably referred to weed rather than Heineken. Which is funny and not trolling.
