Steering Wheel Configuration Guide

To install the Steering Wheel Mount, simply flip levers up, slide into place and flip levers back down firmly.
NOTE: Lever does not neccessarily need to reach lower limit to firmly grip.

AtGames Family of Products

These are the Steering Wheels confirmed to work natively with AtGames products (CoinOpsX and built-in games) at this time:
Thrustmaster T-80 (Config below)
The configuration is slightly different for each one.

Thrustmaster T-80 Playstation model

The T-80 has two modes - Gamepad mode and Racing mode. For CoinOpsX, you will want to be in Gamepad mode - you know if you are in Gamepad mode if the light is flashing. A solid light means it is in Racing mode which may be better for some OTG gaming.
To change modes, Hold the PS icon button when plugging the USB in.
When in Gamepad mode, there are 3 levels of sensitivity. We find that the most sensitive - green flashing light - is best for most CoinOpsX games.
To switch sensitivity levels, press both paddle shifters and the down arrow at the same time. The flashing light will change to Green, Orange and Red.

AtGames Configuration

In order to use the T-80 with the AtGames products, you need to map the controls. Ensure that the pedals are connected to your T-80 and that the T-80 is connected to the AtGames USB port. You may need to use a USB hub.
Go to SETTINGS - CONTROLLER SETTINGS and select it.
You will see Thrustmaster T-80 listed under available devices. Select it and it will open up the Button Configuration screen.
CAUTION: There is a bug currently under review by AtGames that may prevent you from changing the Button Configuration after the initial configuration. If you discover that to be the case, deleting the profile is the only solution, but is not obvious. Follow the graphic below to erase Controller Settings so you can start over.
Here is the suggested key mapping for non-inverted pedals, ie. is the pedals are flat on the floor:
Here is the suggest key mapping for inverted pedals, ie. using our pedal mount (Gas and Brake switch sides)
To change the mapping simple cursor to the appropriate keys and hit the button. Some of these buttons are personal preference, but most are the way they are for good reason. The last buttons are left blank because they are either duplicate keys, or you are able to use the control deck for those buttons.
Once you are sure your mapping is correct, scroll and hit SAVE. CAUTION - this might be the only time you can set this, so try to make sure you have it correct. If you need to clear the Controller Settings, see graphic above.
IMPORTANT: To open a game properly, be sure to select it using the GAS Pedal, and NOT the A on the control deck and the coin/start button on the wheel, not the control deck.
If there are some keys in certain games that you want to correct, you can use the key mapping built into CoinOpsX/AddonsX to change the configuration for just that game. (See video Configuring T-80 above for an example.) Advanced users might be able to change the actual MAME settings on some UCEs, but that depends on which core made the UCE.
As the community focuses on tweaking racing games for CoinOpsX, we expect revised UCEs will come available that will improve the compatibility and experience as well as tutorials on how to best set up each game.

Hori Mario or APEX model

The Hori Wheels have several adjustments that should be adjusted for better results - especially in CoinOpsX gaming.
All the settings are in the manual HERE but the important ones are:
  1. Hit Assign + ZR together for 180 degree mode. To go back to 270 degree mode, Hit Assign + ZL together.
  2. To Adjust Dead Zone: Toggle Switch to DP. Then hold ASSIGN (3 sec) and hit "+" and then hit Down Arrow until Green
  3. To Adjust Sensitivity: Toggle Switch to LS. Then hold ASSIGN (3 sec) and "+" and then hit Up Arrow until White

If you discover that to be the case, deleting the profile is the only solution, but is not obvious. Follow the graphic below to erase Controller Settings so you can start over.

To change the mapping simple cursor to the appropriate keys and hit the button. "A" is generally the Gas in most games and "B" is generally the Brake. Most of the rest of the buttons are personal preference. 

Once you are sure your mapping is correct, scroll and hit SAVE.
