so i want to buil a little game corner in my Homebar Area,
I have an Asus k55vd that works with Batocera just great. That will be hookd up over hdmi to a big screen. So what i want to play - MAME, NES, SNES
I can get a bunch of cheap usb Controllers in the NES and SNES Style, 2 (8Bitdo) Arcade Sticks and i have a XBox One S Controller at the moment.
Persanaly i just tryed Batocera with the Xbox One Controller, to see if it works.
And now the Questions:
Question 1 - Is it possible to map 2 Nes Controllers and 2 SNES Controllers and 2 Arcade Sticks? So that lets say i want play NES in 2 player mode, i hook up 2 USB NES Controllers and it will automaticaly be mapd and will work? And when i want to skip over to play some SNES Games, i unplug the NES and plug in the SNES and it will work directly? And so on…
Or have i do the mapping everytime the controller will change?
Question 2 - Is it possible to hook up the Laptop to the Big Screen and keep the laptop closed? or will it just go into powersaving mode? I saw a week ago that some guys turnd a broken Laptop with the screen removed into a emulation station and since i dont need that laptop for anything else, i think about to do that.
But if its working with the Screen closed i dont need to remove it….
ya this are my main questions so for, there will be others like possibility of getting a browser like firefox to running for music or Youtube and such stuff… but that is not so important right now.
So thank you and sorry for the bad english.
