Hey all. I am struggling with the right Keyboard Hackfile needed to run with jzIntv on Windows 10. 


I pulled a working controller and Nurmix converter cable from my Intellivision II and connected to a Vision-Daptor.  Windows does detect it, but it does not like the NE direction for some reason. 


When I launch jzIntv, the side buttons map to East and West direction, no keys register properly. I tried Swords and Serpents, Cloudy Mountain,Star Strike, Stunt Cycle. The keys are all jacked up.


So I think that part of my problem is a bad key hackfile... Can anyone share a working version?


I did try to get something from https://retropie.org...-not-working/14and http://www.intellivision.us/intvgames/interface/hackfile.cfg

You have to have it working correctly in the Windows Game Controller Test window first.  If its not working there, no hackfile will help.


If its a flashback controller and a nurmix flashback converter cable then the Vision-daptor should be set for regular Intellivision.  If its a flashback controller only, than the Vision-daptor should be set for Intellivision flashback.



There's two general types of jzintv hackfiles for intellivision usb adaptors; those where the keypad starts at the fourth button and those where the keypad starts at the ninth button.

Actually, this brings a question... Is there a respository of "canonical" hackfiles for the various peripherals? Or is such a thing even possible?

Raphnet, Retronic, Ultimate PC Interface adapters all have the proper hackfile on their respective sites.


The Vision-dapter uses the same hackfile as the UPCI.
