Does FS-UAE suport 3 button joysticks?

Hi Frode,
Does fs-uae suport 3 button joysticks?
I say that because I adapted a joystick years ago to use all three buttons, and some games as Turrican series can use them.

Keep the good work! (dont forget a virtual keyboard and Amiga mouse emulation
with joypad/joystick)

Cheers

Hi, 3-button joysticks should work. The gamepad mapping does not map the 3rd button currently (which it probably shoud do..). If you open share/fs-uae/input/common/gamepad.ini, you can change the default mapping. The [amiga] section looks like this:
Code:
[amiga]
dpad_left = left
dpad_right = right
dpad_up = up
dpad_down = down
south_button = 1
west_button = 2
left_trigger = toggle_autofire

lstick_left = left
lstick_right = right
lstick_up = up
lstick_down = down
east_button = up
north_button = 1
right_shoulder = up
left_shoulder = down
As you can see, "south" and "west" are mapped to button 1 and 2. "East" and "north" are mapped to up and 1, for an alternative control style for jump-and-run platform games. Perhaps the right shoulder button is a nice candidate for button 3:
Code:
[amiga]
dpad_left = left
dpad_right = right
dpad_up = up
dpad_down = down
south_button = 1
west_button = 2
left_trigger = toggle_autofire

lstick_left = left
lstick_right = right
lstick_up = up
lstick_down = down
east_button = up
north_button = 1
right_shoulder = 3
left_shoulder = down
If you edit and save this file, the change should work the next time you start FS-UAE.

Of course, if you create a config from scratch for a new joystick device (not gamepad), this ini file is not relevant. Look here instead: http://fengestad.no/fs-uae/custom-co...-configuration.
