How do you setup Autofire to work properly?

Unread post by Morfious »

Can someone please explain how to get the autofire to work properly in Mister? No matter what I do, it doesn’t seem to work as expected. According to the following site: https://boogermann.github.io/Bible_MiST ... #auto-fire

Autofire should work like this:
“Any defined button (except d-pad) supports auto fire feature. To activate auto fire, press and keep desired button and then quickly press the button defined as “BUTTON OSD”(for joystick) or “KBD TOGGLE”(for keyboard). To deactivate auto fire, repeat the the same procedure.
Auto fire provides 50ms-1000ms rates. To choose the speed, press and keep one of direction on d-pad and then quickly press the button defined as “BUTTON OSD”(for joystick) or “KBD TOGGLE”(for keyboard).”

I am currently using an iPac2 as my interface device. I have it set up for x-input mode (ABXYLR). During my setup there was no option for “Button OSD” to be defined that I can remember. I have the I/O board installed, and have the OSD button from the I/O board hardwired to my control panel. I have tried holding the button I want to use for autofire down and simultaneously pressing the OSD button from the I/O board, but this does not seem to work.
Can someone that has this feature working correctly please explain how you got it to work. Otherwise I’m going to wear out my fire button playing Galaga!!

Thank you in advance.

The OSD button from my controller (XBO) works fine like the description says.

I've mapped the OSD button to my XBox button on the controller so when i want auto fire i keep the button pressed on which i want it on and tap the Xbox menu button, i know it's set because the OSD shows a short message like "32ms autofire".
You can even increase the timing in a few intervals which i can't say from the top of my head now by pressing the left or right on my digital pad when setting autofire, left decreases the value and right increases the value, there is a min max value. (32ms is min, max i don't know because i mostly roll with 32ms)

Maybe if you can't assign an OSD button using the control method then you could try the keyboard method where you keep the assigned button pressed and then tap F12 on your keyboard to set it up?

For anyone reading this in the future the button or buttons you set up at the beginning for menu are the secret for getting autofire to work. Since I have the OSD/Menu button hardwired up to my I/O board I never set up a button combo for menu. I redid the setup for my iPac and set a menu button combo. The autofire now works as expected.

Hold button you want to use for autofire and hit the menu button or menu button combo. You will see a autofire 32ms message in the upper left of the screen. This value can be adjusted by holding up or down on the joysitck and hit the menu button or menu combo buttons.
