This page will show you the button mapping for each action, but to actually learn when and how to use them, you'll need to check How To Play.

Think of this page as more of a dictionary, and the actual book is the How To Play page.


Pointer Button

To interact with some objects using hand controllers, you can hold the Pointer Button to show a laser pointer, point to a interactable object to highlight it, then press the other needed button as explained in the section below, to perform the action.

Index Trigger Index Trigger Index Trigger Grip Button

Controls

Again, this more of a quick dictionary, and to actually learn how to use each of these controls, read How To Play.

If you need to point someone to a specific control in this page, you can hover it with your cursor and a "Link" will show up. You can then just copy its address and paste it anywhere.

(If you're having issues with wrong buttons on Index or WMR controllers or can't release grabbed objects, check your SteamVR bindings.)

VR controllers Buttons for Games

EmuVR also remaps buttons on your VR controllers to buttons on a simulated Xbox 360/One controller, so that you can to play your games with them instead of a gamepad.

This layout may seem odd, but it was designed with comfort and convenience in mind for the most common systems, in a way that allows you to press all the face buttons at the same time with one hand.

With this you can dash-jump while charging a shot, if your game needs all those buttons being pressed together.

Light Gun games have a different button layout (click this link to be able to "Press Start" in light gun games).

* D-Pad controls:

  • Some consoles do not have controllers analog sticks, e.g. NES, SNES, Sega Genesis. For these systems, your VR controller's analog stick will actually simulate D-Pad buttons.
  • On systems that do have controllers with analog sticks (e.g. Nintendo 64, Dreamcast, Gamecube), your VR controller's analog stick will properly simulate the emulated controller analog and not the D-Pad. If you need to actually use the D-Pad for a moment, like on a N64 game that uses it to for example change weapons, you need to hold the "Force D-Pad" modifier in the list above.

Index and WMR Controllers Support

If you're using Index or WMR controllers, you'll be using our bundled controller bindings for SteamVR.

Since update 1.0.9.1, EmuVR will attempt to set this for you automatically.

If you still have wrong buttons or can't release grabbed objects with Index or WMR controllers, that means you'll have to set your bindings manually. Click below to learn how to do it.

Before trying this, you can make Game Scanner attempt to install them automatically one more time by holding Shift while you click Game Scanner.exe, and it should show the "Patch Applied!" message again. Restart EmuVR and check your input. If it's still wrong, follow the next steps below.


First, to be able too see EmuVR in the games list in the interface described below, EmuVR needs to be running before you open the bindings menu.

To open SteamVR Controller Binding interface in VR, while EmuVR is already running, bring SteamVR's dashboard, then click the following buttons in this order:

  1. Settings
  2. Controllers
  3. Manage Controller Bindings
  4. (Make sure "EMUVR" is selected at the top)
  5. Custom
  6. CHOOSE ANOTHER

Finally, select the respective binding exactly as shown below.

Alternatively, instead of doing the above steps in VR, you can just click this url to open that same interface in your browser: http://localhost:27062/dashboard/controllerbinding.html?app=system.generated.emuvr.exe (You'll still need to have EmuVR running in VR mode to find it in this list.)

  • For Index controllers, click Activate on this item in the list, exactly as shown here:

  • For WMR controllers, click Activate on this item in the list, exactly as shown here:

Wmr binding offline.png

  • For HP Motion Controller / HP Reverb G2, click Activate on this item in the list, exactly as shown here:

HP binding offline.png


For HP Reverb G2 / HP Motion Controllers use the same buttons as the Oculus Touch controllers as shown in any list in this wiki, but press Y instead of Start to show the Menu.
