Antimicro is so much better than Xpadder! It's super easy to set up and you can use the info from this guide to get it working. Just be sure to go into the setup and set the control type to 'Keyboard'. I was having an issue where I couldn't change my yaw and it was because it seemingly defaulted to 'Mouse'.
Edit: Also, have a configuration available?
It takes 10 seconds to set up since most of the keys are set with the dosbox keymapper but if it helps here's the config file for Antimicro - https://drive.google.com/file/d/10sB4o5pZAL_O5443qaonU40H-O7NW5wR/view?usp=sharing
Edit: PRO TIP
- if you're going to play WC4 and want the same control scheme, go under 'Extras' and download the DOS version of WC4. Then, go to your WC3 directory and copy 'mapper-0.74-2.map'
to your root WC4 directory. After that, edit 'dosbox_wc4.conf'
and change the mapperfile
line so that it reads: mapperfile=mapper-0.74-2.map
. This will port all of your keymapper settings from WC3 to WC4.
I would also recommend a change to key layout described in the OP - I would bind ` (toggle afterburners) to R3 (push right stick in) since I don't think the 'match speed' button is very useful at all. R3 is much more convenient then pressing the Back button and afterburners are very important.
