Street Fighter V Training Reset on Hit Box using Steam


Efficient and effective training is important to any player trying to improve. In order to get the most out of Street Fighter V's training mode on Steam, we have created this blog post to direct Hit Box players on a useful button layout.

 

Note: These instructions are for official Hit Box controllers from 2016 and later, and on the latest firmware. If your Hit Box does not fit that description, these instructions may not work.

Outline

1. Testing on PC

The first thing to do is to ensure that your Hit Box is being read by your PC.

Search for "joy.cpl" in your Windows search bar. Then select the "joy.cpl - Control panel item."

[Note: If you want easier access to this program, select "Open file location" then right click "joy.cpl" and select "Create shortcut." This will put a shortcut on your Desktop for easy access.]

The program will look like this:

Now, plug in your Hit Box.

"Controller (XBOX 360 For Windows)" or something similar should show up in the window.

Next, double click on the controller in the joy.cpl window. Then press buttons on your Hit Box to see if the PC is reading inputs. The numbers should be turning on and the directions showing up on the right hand side.

If your Hit Box is showing inputs in joy.cpl, then you can now test in Steam.

2. Testing in Steam

With your Hit Box still plugged in, open up the Steam program.

Once open, go to the "Steam" options in the top left of the window and select "Settings."

From there select "Controllers" then "General Controller Settings."

This should open up Big Picture controller settings.

On this window ensure that the Hit Box is being read as an "XBOX" or "XBOX 360" controller.

This is typically good enough to determine that Steam is reading the Hit Box, especially if joy.cpl is reading the Hit Box. However, you can test the Hit Box in-game just to make sure.

For more instructions to get your Hit Box working on Steam, please use our "Hit Box on Steam" blog.

3. Boot into PS4 Mode

In order to have access to as many buttons as possible, we will have to boot the Hit Box into PS4 Mode - this will allow us to use all four of the menu buttons on the top of the Hit Box.

To boot the Hit Box into PS4 mode, simply:

  • Unplug your Hit Box
  • Hold down the Triangle / Medium Punch / P2 button
  • Plug in your Hit Box into the PC
  • Wait a few seconds, then release the button

 

You should see that joy.cpl and Steam now have different controllers being read - "PS4 Wired Gamepad V1.7" or something similar.

Once you have confirmed that your Hit Box is in PS4 mode, you can remap the buttons in Steam.

Notes:

  1. Your Hit Box will not stay in PS4 mode after unplugging it. You will have to boot it into PS4 mode every time you plug it it.
  2. If you want to learn about more PC modes the Hit Box has, please read our "PC Modes on Hit Box" blog.

4. Mapping Buttons in Steam

Now that your Hit Box is in PS4 Mode, select the controller in Steam's controller settings then select "Define Layout."

Next, map the buttons according to their corresponding placement on the controller.

The binds to pay the most attention to are the menu binds and Left Stick & Right Stick click. This is what we recommend you bind those inputs to:

  • Start = Right-most menu button on the Hit Box
  • Guide = [nothing]
  • Back = 2nd from the right menu button
  • Left Stick click = Left-most menu button
  • Right Stick click = 2nd from the left menu button

Everything else should be fairly straight-forward to remap.

Once you have mapped everything, select "Save." Then your controller should still be in Steam and ready to test in Street Fighter V!

5. Test in SFV Training Mode

Once you have mapped your Hit Box, it is time to test it in Street Fighter V.

Go into Training Mode. Use Left Stick click to reset your position.

Go into any Trials. Use Right Stick click to reset your trial.
